its so crazy how life works. I think it has taken me this long to come to terms with the fact that the person I thought I would spend the rest of my life with… was indeed not. My best friend just got engaged and I am over the wall excited to be her Maid/Matron of Honor… prob more happy than I was to be a bride lol. But it just has be reflecting on how much I became a pro planner when I became a bride. Its sad…. just feeling reflective and down…

So sorry. My son called off a wedding that he knew was not going to work. He loved her but knew it would not work out. Kudos to you for having the insight. I have told him there is some one for you and when you find her you will know. I think the same for you. Keep positive.

@Mdmc: thank you. You are right, I loved him.. but there are so many things that go into a working thriving relationship besides love. I never felt taken care of, I never felt protected. I now know these things are very important to me. On the outside I can sometimes come across as a cold shark… but I need to be treated like a woman and cant always be the man in the relationship. live and learn i guess

~Hugs~ I’m so sorry, but it’s good to see that, yes you were a great planning Bride, but you continued to keep your heart focused on preparing for a marriage and putting that before all else. Wishing you the best.

@CGBride: 🙂 thank you. I just think sometimes how different my life would be had I gotten married. Better in the eyes of many.
I feel like the engagment ended and I just went lose! I slept with someone quickly.. I started going out again.. I focused on me more.. Granted, a year later ive still am only sleeping with that same person haha go figure. I just feel like…. alone. I dont know how to describe the feeling. Its almost like…I am able to afford everything I want, but have to beg for what I need. My mind just becomes dazed thinking about it. When I think about the present, I am very happy being selfabsorbed right now. Its so relieving having to be concerned with your own wants and needs. But I am a relationship type of girl.. I love being in love. I love waking up to someone and knowing there is someone I can call anytime and have no doubts they would be there. I love feeling an arm pull me closer in the night. I love being in love…. I just need peace of mind.

@MrsNeutrino: I know exactly how you feel! I was in a similar state before I met my fiance. Enjoy this time alone and reap up the fun of being selfish and taking time for yourself. When you take care of you, you’ll have so much more enerfy and love to offer the person who will be the one you meet and marry at the alter! 🙂 I hope the week is treating you well!

@MrsNeutrino: I was just thinking about you the other day. Wow, what a difference a year makes.
While I am sorry (I guess?) that things ended it sounds like you are on to better more fitting things for yourself and I am happy to hear it. I am glad that you listened to your needs and instincts.
I wish you the best and definitely keep us updated on what is next for you. 🙂

Sometimes seeing someone else’s complete and genuine happiness can make you look inside and help you realize that you deserve the same and aren’t in that place.
Good for you for recognizing it and making the decision to move on. 🙂

I’m so sorry. Wasn’t yours an arranged marriage, if I remember?
