Had by far the best rl in my adult life and it is soon coming to an endsad, such is life he is moving back to his home country to finish his studies at uni. He was only every temporarily here(undefined) for work so walked into this one.

It's all very sickly self indulgent honeymoon stage kind of love 9 months officially and never connected or had such an equal rl woth someone.And I could go on and gush but I'll spare you.

I feel at this moment that although il most likely move on and get on with life that the door will never fully close on our rl.

I just wondered if you ever had that right guy wrong time kind of rl and even if a couple yrs go by did you still feel something for them?

Similar sort of story but, my first love moved to the other end of the country for Uni. I ended it out of fairness to both of us. We had a great year together before. You will get over it in time OP. Cherish the memories flowers

Yes, but it doesn't hurt any more and I wouldn't go back. Time helps and he will become a great but peaceful memory.

I had a similar rl once. It took me two years to get over him: me in my home country, him in his. It really broke my heart. But it wasn't meant to be.

I made it obvious I wanted him to chase me across the miles. But he didn't, so i had to let him go.

Thank you for the replies it's nice to know iv not been alone, I comfort myself with knowing I will move on eventually and im not deluding myself, although I will wallow a bit when he does go.

Our situation makes sense in that he'd be a fool not to go finish studies if he has the chance, he only stopped to be able to support his family financially.
And my life is here with my dd.

I will cherish the memories.smile
