Hi everyone. Look I won't give a long sob-story here but a significant relationship with a really great girl ended about a month ago. Work was busy in June so I was able to distract myself, but now that things aren't so hectic I'm realizing how much I miss her. First of all, it was truly a capital L relationship (!!!), and secondly, I've never had a girl dump me suddenly... it's always been a mutual-breakup as things cool off with previous girlfriends. This one was heart-breaking. She is a very caring person and wants to be friends, but I know I'm not ready for that yet. It will definitely just play with my emotions at this point. How do I work through this? And how do we build a relationship that doesn't prey on my feelings for her? Can that even happen in situations like this? Thanks in advance... I know some people will have amazing things to say about this.
