You never thought it would, but it did. Your ex boyfriend reached out to you and he wants to meet up. He took your heart, threw it to the ground, stomped on it, and then took a sledgehammer to crush the remaining pieces to dust.
I literally cringed as I wrote about how I was casually seeing a guy, hoping that we would become official, only to find out that he had found someone new. It got worse when I wrote him a long, emotional email expressing my sorrow.
He never wrote back.
Then we spent the rest of college ignoring each other. I was nervous to put the story out there. I was ready for public ridicule. To my surprise, I got tweets and comments about how other girls had been in the same situation and could relate.
As embarrassing as my Mark situation was, at least I learned something from it. And I want to share what I learned. To start off, I want to clarify something. I do not regret the ACT of emailing Mark. I regret the content of the email. However, pouring my hurt out in that email was not the best move.
No lines about how he hurt me and not pages and pages of text. Just a few sentences. If you were good friends with the person before you started dating, if you had a real emotional connection, if you spent a lot of time with that person, or if you just really feel like you need some closure for your own sake, then an email or Facebook message, etc.
But learn from my mistake. Keep it short and sweet. Wish the person well, tell them no hard feelings if need beand move on.
As much as you may want to. It can be hard to let someone just disappear from your life completely.
Believe me, I understand this. But sometimes it does more damage when you try to force a person to stick around, or if you let a person stick around when he has a negative influence on your life.
You will be better off if you just mentally close that chapter and open yourself up to someone who wants to love you for who you are, and who wants to be included in your life.
It may take weeks or months, but you will heal and you will eventually stop thinking about your own Mark. Have you found that a letter helps give you closure, or have you had an unfortunate Lauren-style letter confession?

Things really moved fast with your D, makes me feel hopeful as I'm about 10 weeks 'post bomb' and we're still in the same house, sleeping in the same bed and I'm working my ass off to make the changes I wish I'd made 7 years ago.
