It’s been 11 years.  At the 1 year mark, we broke up for 6 months because I was being too needy (it’s true, I was).  We got back together and were married last September.  ๐Ÿ˜€

Have you ever broken up with your current S/O?

He broke up with me for about 12 hours

Why did you break up?

Um, I think it was a combintion of me being a bit needy and him not having the experience to deal with it. I was his first girlfriend and we have always had different ideas about how much time we should spend together.

How long was the split? 12 hours. I convinced him he was giving up to easily.

How long had you been together before the break up?

About 6 months.

ETA: we’ve been together 4 years

Have you ever broken up with your current S/O?  Yup.

Why did you break up?  We were young and weren’t growing up like we needed to, so he ended it.

How long was the split?  Somewhere between four and a half and five years (it’s nebulous because we don’t have an actual date when we became an item again).  We weren’t even talking for the first two and a half years.

How long had you been together before the break up?  Just under two years.

After all that, approximately nine years after we first started dating, seven years after we broke up, and two years after we were most definitely an item once more, we got married.  We couldn’t be happier.  Breaking up sucked comically large monkey balls, but it was really the best possible thing that could have happened in our relationship.

Fiance and I have been together for 7 years. We broke up for a few months about a year and a half into our relationship. We were long distance for all of college, and it was difficult being across the country. We got back together about 2 months later and have been together ever since.

In high school, yes. Twice. We were broken up for a year and a half the first time and about 9 months the second (but started talking about getting back together about 5 months into it). We were together less than 6 months each time. 

They were definitely full breakups and not just “breaks”. Both times, I was pretty convinced we weren’t going to be getting back together. Apparently he just can’t stay away.

Oh yeah – this round #2 for my fiance and I

Why did you break up?  He was a dumbass.  LOL – no he broke up with me because he was leaving to work in another state and didn’t want a long distance relationship. 

How long was the split?  About a year.  He went on the road and I went back to my ex.

How long had you been together before the break up? Only a month or two.  The first time we dated I actually really liked him and I was pretty bummed when we broke.  Little did I know I was suppose to marry the man.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes! We’ve been together for about 4.5 years and we broke up quite often in high school. It was drama filled, and we were young. We were “broken up” for a while, but we’re still seeing each other. After high school we moved in together and that really helped us grow up and become a great couple. Now we’ve been living together for jus over 2 years and only have small bickers and heated debates. I think fighting, and even breaking up to spend time apart, can really work to develop a strong relationship.

Have you ever broken up with your current S/O? Yes.

Why did you break up? Fi thought getting into fights meant we shouldn’t be together. Other time was shortly after proposing, he freaked out from all the changes. 

How long was the split? The first one was 2 weeks, the other time lasted a day.

How long had you been together before the break up? The first break up was after 6 months together, the 24hr breakup was after a year and a half.

Have you ever broken up with your current S/O? yes.

Why did you break up? our relationship had been going on since we were kids. We had a child at 20 and just weren’t grown up enough to handle what we had on our plate. It was never a lack of love, but we hit a point where neither of us could figure out how to make things work properly.

How long was the split? a bit under two years. I dated someone else rather seriously for about a year and grew up quite a bit since I had not really been without him (FI) in some capacity since I was about 18. I figured myself out and he did some self discovery as well and dated someone else too. We spoke during that time and maintained necessary cordial contact because we have a child.

How long had you been together before the break up? I think about 7 years since it was at the beginning of 2010? I think. Its hard to say since we didnt have an official start date. we use april 29th as our anniversary but thats a date we chose to make an anniversary.

We have been back together now for about 14 months. When we got back together it was not easy. We decided to do it though because we both felt the love we have always had between us was worth the work. We had a lot of growing pains and have had some bumps in the road but through a lot of growing and prayer and even some counseling we have finally found a way to mesh our differences properly and heal some of the hurt that has been caused in the past due to our inability to communicate properly and other things. Its complicated lol but now we are so incredibly happy that I think every single bad thing and hard thing we went through was absolutely necessary.

We broke up for about 18 hours about 6 months ago. We had been dating a little over 2 years, and I was really anxious about not knowing where we were heading because he thinks that it’s weird for people to talk about when they are going to get married and that everything should be a surprise. At that time, we were in a LDR and things were just hard. We got in a fight over the phone and broke up. We ended up talking on the phone most of the night, met the next day (we drove to meet each other in the middle), and FINALLY talked about our plans for the future. He doesn’t even count it as a breakup, but for 18 hours I really didn’t know if we were still together or not. Everything has been honky dory every since. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, but it was at the very beginning of our relationship… we’ve been together a little over 5 years, and we broke up about 4 months into our relationship.  We were split for about 2 weeks.  I think the biggest factor was that it was long distance and still new.
