There I was in a perfectly happy relationship with a great guy. He was exactly the kind of guy everyone assumed I’d end up with, but there was just one little problem — I was struggling to see our future together because my heart was stuck in the past. I had moved on from my ex, but I still wasn’t over him. It’s confusing to be in a healthy relationship with a wonderful person yet still feel drawn to your former person. There were little moments that really slapped me in the face, like driving down the road and catching my eyes dart to a certain car to see if it’s his and feeling disappointed when it wasn’t. And there were bigger moments that weighed heavy on my heart, like dreaming about him while sleeping next to my boyfriend and waking up feeling guilty for the dream but grateful for the time together. I felt stuck — unable to move in any direction. Feelings for my ex were holding me back from going deeper in my relationship, and my happy relationship was keeping me from going back to my ex. I spent months in a constant emotional debate — go, stay, go, stay. The only thing I was sure of was that my stalled emotional state wasn’t fair to anyone, myself included.

There’s an old saying that in order to get over someone, you have to get under someone new. I’d never thought about the saying much – until I found myself dating someone who was, in fact, trying to move on from his previous relationship. Our seven-hour first date was less than two months after his breakup. They’d dated over a year, he’d said, and the relationship came up over the course of natural conversation.
It wasn’t a red flag for me; instead, it felt smooth and reassuring, the result of an easy intimacy we’d tapped into right away. I had no reason to assume he was hung up on his ex. He very plainly said that he was over her; they simply weren’t compatible. I chose to take him at his word, and I didn’t think about her again until several months later.

People always say that when you are in love you just know. Whenever you ask someone what it feels like to be in love, they always struggle to come up with a good answer. It is for this reason that love is also the most complicated of all the emotions.

We would go back to our home, the house we moved into after our wedding, and I knew I would fall asleep to the sound of your heartbeat.
Since I left you. And still, I see you everywhere. As I write this, I am surrounded by papers and books. Still, even as I forge ahead, I am taken back to the years and years of you. When I studied in college, and we would take breaks together to get lattes across campus. Your face is so goddamn clear in my mind.

By Chris Seiter. No one likes being broken up with, or breaking up with someone. She cared about you deeply at one time, after all.
