The absolute best part of our relationship was the entire year when his best friend was gone in another state for work, and all ofh is friends were away at school. We were living together, and it felt like we gelled. Then, it was when they all came back after graduation in May, and Isaac moved back as well, that he started going out partying again. I think that played a huge role. Suddenly that was more fun that being in a long distance, committed relationship, that involved planning a future, and taking care of someone who missed him so much. You are absolutely right, I deserve to come first. I put him first, because I viewed him as my partner. I was never his partner, he just loved me when I was fun. Then we had real life problems, and I guess he didn’t want it anymore.

I forgot to mention, when he promised me things would be OK on the phone the day before he broke up with me, he later told my dad that he just couldn’t tell me the truth because there were other people in the room. Well, he told me it was the honest truth and didn’t decide he was going to break up with me until the following morning…his story kept changing. We later found out he was at a fantasy football draft the night before he dumped me, while I was sitting at home sobbing, being tortured with the wait. It makes me so angry now, I could scream. I honestly think that week of waiting was a test for him, to see if he liked his life better being free.

I’m 30, getting married for the first time to the most wonderful guy. 30 is NOT old. 30 is such a great age I can’t even tell you. I’m settled in my career. I make a great salary. I could live on my own comfortably if I wanted. Please don’t think being 30 and unmarried is the end of everything. I thought I wanted to be married at your age, but looking back I was in no way ready. At 30 I’m ready. I’ll be 31 1/2 when our wedding happens, and I’m not remotely bothered by it.
You’ll meet someone else, someone better, and if it takes until you’re 30….well just think of how awesome you’ll be by then!
