I did the exact same thing as you, about 5 years ago. The guy I was with kept promising me a ring for a loooong time, and the day never came….until I finally took the plunge and broke it off. It took me a couple weeks to get over the depression, but then I moved on with my life, much happier than before. Then a couple of years later, I met the man I was meant to be with all along – we’re getting married this year ๐Ÿ™‚ 

The worst part was that my ex (who kept putting off the engagement and refusing to give a reason why), met another girl just a month after I broke up with him, and then proposed to her within a year. It hurt a little when I found out, but then I realized that when a man knows what he wants, he knows. We weren’t right for each other, and it was no one’s fault. We both ended up better off in the end, and met the people we were really meant to be with. Just know that everything happens for a reason, as long as you keep your head up and move forward ๐Ÿ™‚

I can only imagine how hard this is right now but just know that you have done what is best for you. 

Broken promises is not the way to start a life together. 

It’s a new year. Who knows what the future holds!

myersbriggs:  I’m so sorry but you go girl! The line has to be drawn somewhere. I’m glad you are taking control of your life. I will take you off the waiting list (I don’t like taking people off for this kind of reason, it makes me sad). Just remember to come back when you feel ready, with or without a SO. It’s great that it feels like a weight was lifted off your chest, because that shows that it really was bringing you down. If you need someone to talk to you can PM anytime.

Proud of you!! There’s a reason why people say to watch out when you breakup because your ex will likely be engaged within the next year to his new girlfriend. You should never have to pull teeth to get a man to marry you.

My love, i have been there. Took me 6 years to realize my ex was never going to commit so I left and was devestated on multiple levels, for one, I still loved him and wanted to be with him and even worse, he let me go and never tried to win me back which let me know I really wasn’t the one. Fast forward to the present, he has 2 baby mamas (one of which hates his guts and makes his life miserable) and still isn’t married and I am planning my wedding. 

Keep your head up. You will be back announcing your engagement to the man who truly deserves you. (((hugs)))

You did the right decision for yourself.  You deserve a man,  not a silly teenage boy. Bravo! 

Now  you need a vacation to recharge and have some fun.

The feeling of relief, means that you’ve made the right decision.

Congratulations Bee. And now go do something for YOURSELF. (I suggest travel!)
