The problem was that neither of them had a good excuse to break up with the other, but together they came to understand that having no glaring reason to define the relationship as bad did not mean that what they had was great.Prompted by the harrowing examples of their parents’ marriages, they decided that ending their relationship was for the best.While he was moving on and falling in love, I avoided dating other guys, because being with someone else meant I was putting the final nail in the coffin of the relationship.

And this is coming from a person who can't stand girls who go MIA the moment they're dating someone. And when they resurface, they'll pour their heart out and tell you everything you've wanted to hear.Now that I have about ten years perspective on my dating history, it's easier to look back and pinpoint all the major screw-ups on my part: things I said and didn't say, things I did and didn't do, times when I was too forgiving and times I wasn't forgiving enough.
