It's been 2.5 years since I've been single. 2.5 years of being in love and knowing that the person you were with was the one.
Until he no longer was.
The break up hasn't even sunk in yet... it's been mere hours since he uttered those words. Said that he saw our lives as being very different. We were heading in two different directions, so he said.
We were never exactly alike. He was younger and I was far more advanced in my career than he was. He was more laid back and I was adventurous and driven.
I told everyone that we were in love. And he made me believe that, with love, we could conquer any obstacles.
But I guess love tends to fade with time. Or people become complacent in a relationship and stop putting effort into it so they are just coasting through it for a while until that one day when they wake up and realize that they don't wanna be bothered with making any effort any more.
I guess that he got to that point today.
And I am left here, picking up the pieces. Slightly blindsided and shocked at the turn of these events.
I am single again. What now?
