I(27m) broke up with my girlfriend(27f) of 4 years 9 months ago. Things got really bad between us before I left and on top of that, I was getting pressured by her parents to either marry her or leave. It was a difficult decision and ultimately I decided to break it off. She was devastated, at the time I thought I was making the right call. For about 6 months she was begging me to reconsider and I was trying to stay strong in my decision. I finally started entertaining the idea of getting back together but when I would start in on the subject with her she would get angry with me and demand apologies. I couldn’t swallow my pride and admit I had made the mistake. Now here I am a couple months later ready to do all of that and she has just barely started dating and has gone out with this guy for like a week. We still have been talking this whole time. She says she loves me but isn’t in love with me, and now I’ve flown half way across the country to tell her how much I still love her and how big of a mistake I made and to beg her to take me back. I’m fully expecting her to deny me but I figured I had nothing to lose if I already lost her so I’m going for it anyway.
TLDR: broke up with girlfriend of 4 years, finally ready to get back together with her for good but I doubt she will take me back now. Trying anyway.
Given that he describes this as what things were like when they initially broke up…
“Things got really bad between us before I left and on top of that, I was getting pressured by her parents to either marry her or leave.”
…you have to think he made the right decision to walk away. I mean, should he have really married someone when it was “really bad” between them?
