I am so so sorry. I applaud your strength in knowing not go forward unless you knew it was right. I am going through a break up as well. We should call it a "near miss" I suppose. How are you holding up? Hugs.

I am holding up well...i made the decision and know in my heart that it is the right one for me....for the majority of the relationship it was all about his needs and wants so it feels good to think about what i want and need.

it's weird...i know about 3 people that are going through break-ups....hugs to you too!

How are you doing?

I am so proud of your strength...and I wish you the best as you move forward with your life and happiness!

From one girl that cancelled an engagement to another...I casually call this "picked the wrong guy, gave him the wrong finger"...but, that's just me

That''s really funny.

I''m so sorry to hear, but I''m glad you figured out it wasn''t going to work out before taking the plunge and getting married.

Whoa. Well I'm proud of all of you for knowing when something isn't right and doing something about it.

Do you want to share what happened?

Hugs!

From another recently dis-engaged gal to another, I''m so glad you were able to recognize that this just wasn''t going to work out for you. Your needs are important too!

Glad to hear you are able to recognize what is best for you. Sorry to hear about the break up, a lot of women seem to be going through this right now.
I hope you find the happiness you deserve and are surely able to make for yourself as a strong woman!

Sorry to hear about the breakup. You definitely did the right thing if he wasn''t the one for you.

I''m really sorry, hon. Even when you know deep down it''s the right thing, it''s still hard. I hope you start feeling better soon.

I''m sorry to hear that. It takes a lot of courage to end a relationship. Kudos to you for knowing it was wrong, and not staying in it to have someone. Good luck.

When I broke up with an ex (he was horrid beyond belief) a friend said ''you can t meet the right person when you are with the wrong person''. It made me feel better at the time. I really hope you meet the right person soon!
also, hope this isn t a weird inappropriate thing to say to someone who has just broken up...

I know how hard this is, but it sounds like you are looking out for yourself. It sounds like you are going to save yourself a lot of heart ache by doing this now instead of later *hugs*

glad to hear you''re doing what you think is best, better to break up now then have to go through a divorce later. I hope you''re doing okay and wish you lots of luck finding your future husband!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the replys and hugs...it does seem like something is in the air....a spring clense I guess...

I am doing fine, he was not doing too well but that is no longer my problem. I''m the type of person that will give you many, many, many chances as long as I feel the realtionship is worth it but the moment I feel like its not then I''m done and there is no looking back. We were together for 4 yrs and out of those 4 yrs i made alot of sacrifices for him and to have it end like this is hard....especially when you think that is "the one" but I knew for a while now that it wasn''t going to work I just needed to end it. Maybe that is why I''m ok b/c I started mourning the realtionship while I was still in it....if that makes sense.
