These are the most common phrases of girls or even boys after a break in their relationship. For me,i can say that I already forgot you if I totally accepted accepted the fact that the person you used to call "mine" is not anymore "yours".On the other hand, when we say, "I moved on",you just realized that its over!But the feelings is still there.You just ignore it!This is my point on view on this.What about you?Share it now,you can get it from your experiences.happy mylotting!

WOW! Interesting topic you have here.=) "I Moved On" means you are ok. You are not sad anymore because of your break up and you are ready to forget him or her and you are open for new relatioship with other people. But you are still affected when you see him or her with some guy or girl. And when you say "I forgot you Already", it means you are so ok. You forgot everything that you had with her or him and it is fine for you to see him or her with another guy or girl.

first and foremost,thanks for the appreciation on my discussion.i just find this discussion interesting especially to teenagers like us. with your answer:"But you are still affected when you see him or her with some guy or girl."you put this under "i moved on", i think this should fall under "i forgot you already" because if you really moved, you no longer care, if he/she will be mingling with other boys or girls.that is my point of view.but anyway, i really appreciate your response.happy mylotting!

Moving on means to accept the circumstances and make a new start. Forgetting someone is like to trying to erase them existence. You cannot have a future if you are not willing to face the past. Moving on is healthier for both mind and body than forgetting,

when you forget, you have not moved on.... but if you have moved on, you could forget. moving on is the acceptance of what had happened, with all your heart, while forgetting is forcing yourself not to go back what had happened in you life...

I think "moved on" means that it took some time but the person has gotten on with their lives in a different and better direction. "Forgot you already" means this person quickly decided to blank that person from their mind and their life. Probably because the separation was too painful. Perhaps they even went out and found someone else right away to fill in the space.

Well as for me there is a big difference between the two. For me in "i moved on" means that he still recognizes the feeling and haven't let go of it completely or haven't forgiven the person. For the "i forgot you already" is letting go of the feelings completely and therefore have forgiven that person. Or it may be the other way around. The best response may be can be that "i forgot you already that's why i have moved on".

I believe that I moved on means you felt something. I forgot you already would mean you didnt

Upon reading the discussion title, I quickly said to myself 'moving on is accepting what has happened, while forgetting someone is a lie'. You see. When you have moved on, it simply means that you acknowledge the things that had occurred. It has hurt you, but you've come to accept that it should happened and you've faced it and have dealt with it, whereby accepting the circumstance and have come into terms with it. Therefore, you're no longer hurting. On the other hand. Forgetting is like denying the person and everything that has happened between you and the person. It's like saying that it never existed and you have erased that memory in your heart and mind. Well, unless you have Alzheimer's Disease, you could probably do that (mostly uncontrollably) but if you're saying that you are not suffering from Alzheimer's and you have Forgotten the events and the person taking all the emotions along with it. Which is impossible. When you break up with someone or when a relationship ends it's either it ended violently or it ended as friends. Regardless the type of ending, there will be hurt feelings and you cannot forget it. But you could accept it and put it all behind you -- This is moving on.

Good Morning rberon, Too bad i missed this discussion of yours heheeh!Moving on is also similar with forgetting becoz when you say you have moved on it means you also accepting the truth that you need to forget something though forgetting is not really easy especially if you have something beautiful to look back. This discussion is 9 months ago i think you already moved on very well and really forget what happened though it was part of your past.:) I am happy that i met you in time that you already passed all this in your life, just be strong something wonderful will happen anytime soon. :)

Well as far as I know, the word "I moved on" is more realistic than that of "I forgot you already",though it is true that sometimes the latter is real. i think those who say "I moved on" is braver than "I already forgot you" guys becoz the former people are brave and forthright enough to admit that they do not or cannot forget somebody but they ARE able to get back to their own life. as for me, who had also a severe heart break just a year ago, I can say that:"Truly,I never forget you(or maybe I cannot forget about you all my life), but I have moved on."

I agree with you...i forgot you already is more stricter term or words...but i think its just for saying...becoz no one can forget anyone totally with whom he/she had such a close relationship...i think they just say it to show that they are not affected much and they are happy enough without the other person...but i moved on...is better and real too ..my views...

"I Moved On" is when you can go on with your life, without remembering/including him on your plans. While "I forgot you already", you already forgot him really. Like, when you used to go to that place including him, you will not be able to remember him. :)

The term "I moved on or I had moved on" is more friendly, civil and courteous than "I already forgot you", though the thought is the same, there's a big difference about these two terms and it is a matter of attitude. I moved on is something nice while I already forgot you sounds very nasty and I think it depends on a person how he or she is greatly affected with the break up and the process of acceptance.
