my bf of 1.5 years broke up with me a month ago today. for a while i was doing better, thinking if he saw how well i was doing he'd want to get back together. wrong. now i'm even more miserable than i was to begin with. we broke up mainly because i was so dependent on him, and originally he said we could date again if i became independent, but now he's not sounding quite so optimistic. he still loves me and cares about me, but doesn't want to date me anymore, for sure. sometimes he says no way, we have no chance, and other times he's like, who knows. i know i need to move on and that's the only way i'll be able to be independent. but is there really no chance?? plenty of people break up and get back together. does this sound like there's no way he'll ever want to date me again? because i really feel like we're good for each other and i'm still very much in love with him. and i feel like i do need some time alone, because i've never had the chance to grow up and not have him to depend on because we've been dating almost since i started college. all of our problems stemmed from my dependence on him and insecurities. i just don't feel like this is the end for us. but if he really loved me wouldn't he stay in the relationship to work it out? i'm so confused.
