My ex-girlfriend and I are both 20 and had been dating for a little bit over 4 years. We decided to break up a couple of days ago because of a couple of reasons. The main reason is that she will be leaving to study abroad in Italy for 4 months in the fall. We sort of agreed that it would be too hard to continue our relationship with her being so far away. Its been about a little bit over a week since we broke up and Im still feeling really depressed and down about it. It just hurts because I know that Im still in love with her and I cant go 10 minutes without thinking about her. I know that breaking up was probably the best for the both of us and that "time heals all". She really really wanted to maintain a friendship with me and at the time of the break up I agreed, but now I've been thinking that it may not be such good idea afterall. Especially since Im still in love with her.
