Breaking up is a really horrible thing to deal with, especially after that long, but you need to be with someone who treats you right and it
definitely seems like your relationship just stalled and couldn't get back up.
My last relationship I was in for near enough 11 months and it was just awful towards the end. Constant arguments, constant clashing, being treat like
property not a person, having him wanting to control what I did, how I looked, what I wore, jealousy... All that stuff. I suppose it had been like
that all the way through but it was my first proper relationship and I was too stupid to notice. So I dumped him a month before our anniversary, and
he was angry, made my life hell for a good six months and basically made it perfectly clear he was only with me for one thing. Which I'm sure, from
reading the thread, you can relate to.
Then he apologised, said he shouldn't've acted like that, said he didn't mean it, he was joking, and when I didn't take the apology he went back to
being nasty again. Now, we don't talk. He isn't worth the hassle and I've given him more than one chance because I actually don't like not speaking to
people and haven't ever ended on bad terms with any boyfriend in the past.
So I got back with my first ever childhood boyfriend, first kiss, first love, all that nonsense. I can see the difference between the two and I don't
regret breaking up with the other guy whatsoever even with the hassle he's insisted on given me through it since. I think he genuinely thought if he
got at me enough and made me feel bad enough about myself I'd take him back, so don't fall into that trap if you think you've done the right thing and
he has no intention of changing.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is that there'll be someone out there for you somewhere and providing you don't think you've done the wrong thing
you won't have done. I really hope you find someone better for you soon but if not, what the hey. Being single is nice enough, you don't have to worry
about anyone else and think of all the free time you'll have not needing to set aside time for phone calls and weekends for seeing him.
Get back out there, continue to believe in yourself, and have some fun.
