Hey Everyone- I'm new here and turning to you all in desperation. I am struggling to get over my ex-girlfriend. We dated for a year and a half. I know it does not seem like a very long time but we loved each other very much and we were hoping to build & create a future together. We are both in our 30's and had serious relationships before but this felt different. Even though we had a lot of obstacles to overcome, our chemistry and love was and is there. Everyone around us felt it. After a year into the relationship my girlfriend started to develop anxiety and fear thinking about marriage. We had talked about moving in together and starting a family and she had been happy about it, but all the sudden she decided to get scared. She had extreme anxiety and there was nothing I could do to help her. Her anxiety was also over many things. She has never been one to express her emotions so it was everything coming up to the surface. I tried to calm her down and she started seeing a therapist. She also felt she needed to make some life changes and that we couldn't be together. She thought this was a sign that we shouldn't be together and she needed to work on herself. It broke my heart. I wanted nothing more than to be with her and also help her get better and be there for her. I have dated since then but still cannot get over her. I see her occasionally since we have similar best friends. I know she has tried to date too but she says she is focusing on herself and also can't get over me. We still love each other, yet she has said she is too afraid to go back into our relationship so she does not want to give it another shot. I am so heartbroken. I don't see how I will ever get over her. She will always be the one that got away. Does anyone else have a "one that got away"?
