Missing ex boyfriend
Dear Anna Mac~
You are going though a difficult time. I can see you have already talked about your relationship in the following threads:
Forums / Relationship and family issues / Boyfriend has depression and broke up with me
Forums / Relationship and family issues / Advice needed for relationship
Forums / Depression / Dreading Christmas
I have posted the locations to assist anyone wishing to respond.
It can be pretty difficult to find a person's other threads here in the Forum, plus of course you often have to repeat your self each time.
Croix (who will reply himself a bit later)
what a hard situation to put you in! So ambiguous. Will he come back or will he leave you hanging?
I would suggest giving it a little time but also for your own sanity to put a limit on how long you will wait. You can't hold on forever, that's not fair to you and it will be like a drawn out grief to endlessly wait.
I think you would also benefit from seeing a councillor, they will help you process what's going on and give you better clarity on making the best decisions for you.
Thanks, I am seeing a psychologist and she has been very helpful. It's just been a while between visits because she was away over the holidays so I thought I'd post on here.
Im trying to go out and do things and try new stuff so I feel like I'm moving on in that regard but I don't feel ready yet to move on from him. I guess I'll know when the time is right. It was a really nice relationship and I really want him back if he feels better soon.
Dear Anna Mac~
There really is no right answer to your dilemma, you are doing the best you can to take care of yourself and really have no indicators of how you ex-boyfriend will feel in the months ahead. Eight years, as you said elsewhere, is a large part of both your lives and very hard to just write off.
I do think MissBenthos has a point though, having a tentative end date to work towards will give you a measure of direction and surety, if matters change in the interim you can always change course.
I do hope it works out
