  1. Thank you for formulating notions and feelings into words that I understand. You help me and the relationship of which I am a part.

  2. Great article, very insightful.
    This is exactly the roller coaster I go through.
    I can only hope my SO reads this, and understands the concept that I can’t put it into a time-frame…
    That I need to see consistent change in him, and that there will be triggers that will set me back months…
    Several times, he has thought of taking “the easy way out” and thought to find someone knew who would never dream that a guy like him would betray a woman. To a new girl, he’d be the prince I thought he was a year ago… He probably faces that decision every day I have a setback in trusting him…

  3. ok u say this is for non breakups but near edge what about if it already fell through she’s had past experience but she’s my first she will talk to me about it but then she just ignores me I really want to show here how much she means to me but how do I if she pushes and pulls me around
