DEARSUGAR and Regretful Renee need your help. She feels like she made a mistake breaking up with someone who was distant and non-committal and she wants him back. Renee, I think that you just want what you can't have now.
Remember why you broke up with him in the first place, and never forget the tears. If he was so great while you were dating him, you never would have cut him loose. Trust your instincts, you ended things for a reason! No one should ever put you through so much emotional pain and suffering.
I was just wondering if you or any of my fellow Dear Sugar readers could offer me advice on how to get over a broken heart. I was only dating my now ex-boyfriend for eight months when we called it quits. It was my decision to end the relationship because he seemed distant and uninterested in making a commitment to me.
Ever since I broke up with him I have been feeling regretful and have asked him incessantly for a second chance. Time and time again he has refused me. At least he has agreed to keep in contact with me, however we live five hours apart and he ignores any attempt I make to talk to him.
I cannot figure out what his problem is, but I find myself blaming myself for my unhappiness. I am wondering if any of you have ever been in my position before? Is there any advice you could offer me to stop feeling so down? I feel like all I have been doing is crying these past two months. Regretful Renee
