high school sweethearts prom pictureI Was Too Proud To Beg My Ex Girlfriend To Come Back

My first girlfriend was my first love. We’d been together since high school. A lot of people told me it puppy love but I knew better. It was true love! When I went away to college we still dated. Then she went away to a different college and we continued to date.

I always thought we’d get married.

I planned to pop the question once we both graduated.

Then the unthinkable happened. I’m still trying to figure out why. I had no idea about getting over an ex girlfriend and three months after the breakup was pretty much spending my time studying or moping around. In my heart I didn’t relly want to get over my girlfriend. I just wanted to get her back.

I had too much pride to call or text since she broke up with me but I kept hoping she’d contact me. I knew that wasn’t going to happen though when I was reading my hometown newspaper.

I saw her upcoming wedding announcement in the paper.

That’s when I knew I had to figure out how to get over my ex girlfriend. Knowing that she was now going to be with another guy forever gave it the finality I needed to get myself to move on.

It wasn’t easy. I wasn’t ready to date, even though I wanted to, so I decided to get involved with some activities to take my mind off of her.

I started working out more and volunteered to help out with some underprivileged youth. I’m a Big Brother now too. Another thing I did was remove all reminders of my ex. I met a really nice young woman at the gym and I think she’s going to be a big morale booser. She invited me to dinner this Saturday. Yep, I think I’m about to get over my ex girlfriend.
