Letting go of a crap relationship

Why is this so hard to do??

I've been seeing a man for 5 months and recently, he's gone cold and distant (yeah, I know, probably an affair). He doesn't respond to my attempts to figure out what's wrong so, with a reluctant and heavy heart, I am pulling the plug.

But God does it hurt. I had insomnia last night and feel weepy today. Even though I know he's acting like a jerk and therefore I'm better off without him, my heart hurts. I'm 32 by the way so have plenty of big girl panties in my drawer. Any advice on how to get over an apathetic man?

Allow yourself a "lost weekend" to sit indoors, wallow in sadness, eat a whole tub of Ben and Jerry's in one sitting.

Then get yo arse out there - don't give that man a second thought. Just let it go, he is a distant memory. No regrets no anger.

You'll be fine enjoy the summer and be happy!

I think it's the feeling for rejection and him putting in the situation where you have to end it as he hasn't got the balls to do it.
End it and be done with it.
Cry when you want and know that you did the right thing.
