@MariaW:  I dont think I grieved for a damn second with my ex.  We had dated for about 2 years and I’d been putting up with his horseshit behavior for way too long when we had a fight and he said “you’re the biggest idiot I know” and for some reason, that stupid insult did it for me.  I’m glad he said it and I was able to dump him with no regrets.


Now, that being said, I did break up with one guy that, to this day, I still feel awful about.  If it was a good person and things just didnt work out, i’m not sure you ever shake that little said feeling…

I thought I was going to die of emotions when my high school boyfriend broke up with me. He was such a great guy, and I just loved him. Of course I am happily married now, but back then man it felt like I had been run over by a truck.

I haven’t done any of the things in your post, but I did read It’s Called a Breakup Because It Is Broken.

In my experience, it’s normal to skip some stages, move through the stages out of order, or even repeat some stages. There’s really no right way to grieve after a breakup. I’ve initiated breakups where I didn’t grieve at all, and also been completely, devastatingly crushed. Take your time with it. Everything’s better with time.
