So we broke up. Now she wants to get back together..........

Don';t know if you';ve been following but we had a real rocky relationship. I really felt I wasn';t getting the respect I deserved. We broke up a month ago because she said some things at the time I could not forgive. I don';t think I have forgiven her for this. She has been calling me and telling me she misses me and she blames me for our separation. So for the past month we have been doing our own thing. She';s got an apartment on her own and I am in the middle of a move myself. I still think about her and neither of us has been with anyone else since we broke up. I mean I miss her for real and I also know that if we got back together nothing would change and I would most likely be unhappy. There';s a part of me that is hoping she learned a lesson in all this but I don';t think she has. It';s not like our relationship was all bad but the way I got treated was wrong. Is there really a dilemma here? Should I stay unhappy or unhappy and alone?

This is one of those things you are going to have to make decision on your own, we can give advise but ultimately it is up to you. What you have to ask yourself is do you want to spend your life with someone that doesnt respect you. Do you not think you are worthy of that kind of respect, I dont know you but I believe life is too short to purposely put up w/ nonsence and being mistreated. It seems to me that you love her, and you always will, you shared time, happiness and memories that you will always have. But do you really want to continue with the bad times, relationships dont have to be that way and one day when you least expect it you may very well find that wonderful person that loves you in such a way that respect is a given, as it should be. My daughter was in a rocky relationship for 5 years, when she would call crying all I could tell her was it was her choice to be there in that situation, she finally realized she would always love him but was just used to the way he was with her but was not in love with him. Thankfully she moved on, You can too. It is a choice to be happy, make that choice and do something wonderful for yourself.

i understand your situation. there are some relationship where the problems never ceases to occur. whatever may be the option.i think you have to get over it as you know you can never be happy here. also i have seen that many relationships are like this.its easy to say than done.

unhappy with a girl who doesnt treat you right? unhappy and alone? i'll choose the latter, that means being single gives you the opportunity to meet other people and BE with a girl who'll treat you right. who wants to be in a relationship that'll only make you miserable?nobody...

If she said some things that you could not forgive, and you're still not willing to forgive her, then I don't think continuing the relationship will be good for you. Particularly if she doesn't take responsibility for her actions, and blames you entirely for the separation. In order to move forward with her, you both would need to forgive each other and clear the air, and make real change so that it doesn't happen again. If neither of you are willing to make those compromises, any relationship you had would likely be unhealthy. I'm sure you miss each other, and that's natural after being together a while. But it doesn't mean that you should get back together either. You've both taken steps to move on in that you're living in separate dwellings. There are plenty of other women out there who will give you the respect you deserve.
