Broke up with long distance boyfriend. Very hard for me to cope up.

Asked by Female, 19, Single
I am a student of BDS 1st year. I have recently broke up with my long distance boyfriend. We had relationship of 4 months. We hardly met for 5 times in those 4 months of our relationship. He said "its getting hard for me to continue and as we have not spent time with each other fully I am not sure about it". I really love him a lot.

Dear writer, thank you for writing in. I understand that you are hurting over your recent break up. Long distance relationships are hard for some and although you know that you are willing to make it work, the fact is it takes two to make it work. Your ex didn't seem to be able to deal with the distance and he was honest enough with you. You need to ask yourself whether this is indeed over and if you are willing and ready to let go and get over him? It might feel like a painful road to move on but it is also the best way to heal. Experiences like these although painful can be chalked down as part of life. Sometimes things just don't work out despite our best efforts. What is important, is to put things in perspective and hopefully learn from at as well. There are good experiences life has to offer. Unless your partner wants to work things out, there isn't much you can do to convince him. Don't be disheartened. Please do message back to continue our discussion.
