Break-ups, Fix-ups, and a Bad Taste in your Mouth
It’s been a few months since my breakup and I just can’t get over my Ex. I think of him constantly and I miss him terribly. I know getting back together isn’t an option (he ended it and it was ugly) but there’s a part of me hoping he comes to his senses and calls me.
I’m sorry you’re suffering, and I’m sorry to say that there are many others in the same boat. The good news is that you can get off that boat and start sailing better seas on another- if you choose to do so.
It’s important to remember that the man you’re missing isn’t the Ex you left. The guy you dated, spent holidays, and shared vacations with isn’t the same guy that ended your relationship. For whatever reason, he changed. He isn’t the man that made you smile, and he isn’t the one that holds the key to your happy future. Taking the time to really understand this and to mourn both what you’re missing and what could have been are paramount in moving forward. Take the time to really feel it, understand it and accept it. Before long you’ll be ready to go boat shopping as a prepared and adjusted single.
A friend of mine is constantly asking me to set him up. The problem is that I’ve seen him in relationships before and he’s a total psycho. I don’t wish that crazy on anyone and I don’t know what to do.
Continue telling him that no single guys have crossed your path and you have no prospects for him. Otherwise, all you can do is find someone as crazy as your friend and facilitate the introduction. Then you run quickly away and keep your fingers crossed that their third date doesn’t involve crime scene tape.
