cute college girlBroken Hearted Over Linda

I moved away from my hometown in Missouri to go to college in Nevada. I met lots of new people, but there was one girl, Linda, that I really hit it off with. We had several classes together and the same major. We started going on study dates, and then things started getting serious. We were going steady and ended up moving into an apartment together off campus.

She was everything a man could want.

She was beautiful, smart, knew how to cook, and knew what she wanted out of life. I was truly in love. I came home from class one evening and thought something was funny because the lights were off, and it was only nine o’clock.

I walked in hoping to be greeted by my girlfriend, and saw the light on in the bathroom. I wanted to surprise her, so I pushed open the bathroom door. I was shocked she was with Anthony, another classmate. I left immediately, I had never had a heartache like this.

I have never felt this pain before.

I had no experience healing a broken heart. I had never been in love before. I moved back on campus, by myself. I missed one whole week of classes. All I wanted to do was sleep.

A week and a half later I decided I had no choice but to try to move on with life and get over this heartbreak. I had to face her in almost all of my classes, but I really never wanted to see her again. I had to work on mending a broken heart and focus on my own life now. This was very hard because she was a huge part of my life.

It took me three months before I finally started dating again. I did not get serious with anyone for about a year and a half later.
