Dating someone after a break up

So many of my relationships have ended over text or on the phone, and I think that's why it took so long to get over them. I never got closure, and things felt unresolved with those partners.

I wanted to ask my exes questions or see their expression when things were ending, but all I was left with was the crying emoji instead.

Your abusive partner may not accept the break up or respect your boundaries.

He also stuck a note on the fridge saying, "Remember when you cooked that horrible dinner," and one on the toilet that said, "Remember how embarrassed you were when you clogged this on our third date," which made me smile... It's easy to break up with someone you hate or to move on from a relationship that's broken.

That's why they're called breakups after all, right?

He was struggling in his career and felt the need to concentrate on it in order to feel happy and stable in his life and, thus, couldn't give his full attention to me.

I cared about his happiness and couldn't continue to feel neglected in a relationship.

Be firm and direct, and make sure you establish proper boundaries after you've decided to part ways.
