I'm a 31 yr old female who recently broke up with my boyfriend of 6 1/2 yrs. For the past year I've been wanting a home and with that comes marriage. I felt married already since we've lived together for 5 1/2 yrs, yet he always seemed to shut down when I spoke of marriage. I ended it with him b/c I came to the realization that he was never going to ask my hand in marriage, and it was the hardest decision I had to make. He was holding me back from pursuing further goals and I came to resent him for that. Relationship was going sour b/c of this resentment, but overall we still love each other very much, yet we both came to the decision that we needed to cut all contact until we could get over this funk. I miss him sooo much and I can't shake this feeling of loneliness and despair, and can't seem to erase all the good memories we've had. What keeps me waking up is knowing that we are who we are and ultimately I can't change a person. I still can't accept that it may be really over, b/c a part of me wants to hold onto so much of what was comforting to me; to come home and knowing that he would be here and having companionship..is what I miss so much. How do I cope with this, b/c he is a good person overall; we are just in 2 different places? Help
