My boyfriend broke up with me.
This was my first ever relationship and it lasted more than a year. We became best friends.
He didn’t end the relationship because of any sort of betrayal or because we didn’t work, he wasn’t/isn’t sure if he wants to be with me long-term. We both felt horrible during the breakup, crying and comforting each other.
We mutually agreed we wanted to stay friends, but also that we needed some space to think about things.
That was just this last Monday, three days ago.
I feel surprisingly okay, better than I expected for only three days. I wouldn’t say I’m “over” the breakup in any sense, but I’m not on the verge of bursting into tears at random thoughts of him either.
We both want to stay friends, and it may be a bit strange and awkward at first to not be a couple. I’m sure we can figure it out, though. This may not be what I expected or thought I wanted, but maybe I’ll be surprised and it’ll be better than I could hope.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I plan to welcome it.
