You got it half right, haha. I have a good guy with bad qualities. He has the emotional capacity of a box of rocks. He loves me but can't show it, he
just literally does not convey any emotion. I am a very corny sort of sweet person and he gets onto me for trying to do sweet things. And it's not
technically missing "party" days, per say. It's missing my old life in general. Going camping with friends (whom are 800 miles away from me now
because I'm with my boyfriend in a different state), going out to dinner or to a bar to shoot some pool (my boyfriend is on house-arrest so we can't
ever go do anything, he got sentenced to 2 years, we're only 6 months down), just DOING things, more or less.

That is wonderful advice, thank you. I do think it is worth it to stay with my man, even if it means letting go of things I don't particularly want
to let go of. But sometimes it's harder than other times.

Holding resentment and being angry isn't my problem, it's loving my past more than my present. I have my past up on a pedestal, I remember it so
fondly. My life these days just seems to fall short of what I would have expected it to be. Although, I do suppose getting closure could have
something to do with that. I need to let go of the things that I wish would have happened or wish would happen again and move on from it.

NO! Haha, that is certainly not what this was about. It's more about a balance between giving up everything that I once loved for him, or giving him
up for everything I once loved. It's not about another man, it's about another life. I only even consider it on occasion because I honestly can't
imagine my life without him, but every now and then the feeling that I have given up too much overwhelms me.
