My Problem I had been dating my ex for almost 19 months. We were pretty serious and everything. She's 20 and i'm 19. We had been together since november of '04. The age thing didnt get in the way and stuff. About 6 months into the relationship I got arrested becuase me and my mom got into a fight. It strained us but it worked out and we were good. About a year into she got really pissed off at me and told me it was over. The next day she had one of my friends over to her place to talk and he ended up spending the night. Next day she told me about it I completly freaked out but we ended up talking all night and I spent the night she said nothing happened and I beleived her so the next day we got back together. I forgave her also. Everything was fine and then about 4 months ago i started having problems with my school. Becuase of a few things that happened I ended up having to take the year off. Ive been restless and just been overall an ass and she was there for me. Last monday we got into an argument and she didnt talk to me for 3 days. On thursday she broke up with me. We talked for about 4 hours but in the end I was alone. This is a girl who I honestly though I was going to marry. Her reasoning she wanted to break up is becuase she didnt love me and she needed time to herself to get herself back together. After the talking for 4 hours she didnt say it but she kept coming back to that I love that about you, i love you for that. She just didnt flat out say I love you. I told her maybe a break was best but I wanted to get back together and she agreed but she needed time off. My problem comes to I do absolutly love this girl and even though ive been a little shit for the last 4-5 months I want to make it up to her for the rest of our lives. Ive known her for 3 years. In that time ive seen her go though 2 b/fs. Between all of them leading up to me she has had 1-2 rebounds. She is a christian girl and doesnt do anything about them, its just the fact that I am totally jealous of anyone that she would think about more than a friend. This may sound shallow on my part but we have really close friends. My 2 best friends g/f and wife are close with her and I know that whatever she does ill find out about someway or the other. I just it kills me to think about her with anyone else and I dont know if I could take her back if it comes to that depending on what I find out if anything does happen beyond just a rebound. Is this bad? For anyone that cares what do you think about people taking breaks and getting back together and success of it? Thanks for reading.
