I dated a girl for two years and it ended two and a half years ago. I wasn't the worst boyfriend but I definitely wasn't the best either. After two and a half years I'm positive I'll never do better than her and I have no idea how to move on knowing deep down she was the best I'll ever get and I'll just have to settle for someone less. I had no idea what I had at the time and I'll regret that for the rest of my life.


  1. She wasn't the best you'll ever get. You're being ridiculous.

  2. Abundance mentality. Look into it

  3. damn that's depressing

  4. Even if you think now that she was the best you'll ever get, eventually you'll find someone amazing. But for that to happen you need to first accept that you made some mistakes, you learned from them, you miss her now, but that will change in time, and that she will always hold a special place in your history but that doesn't close you off from finding other special people.

    Everyone who dates long enough ends up with a "one who got away." And it's okay to have regrets and to grieve those relationships, but don't let it hold you back. If after awhile it still prevents you from doing things, I recommend talking to someone for a bit, just to help getting a different perspective. Sometimes getting someone to help you out of your own head can be a real gift.

  5. Oh buddy, I know it's hard to realize but the truth is, she wasn't that good enough for you if you guys decided to part ways. I know shit sucks right now, but trust me, you will find someone else and will be better off. A while back, I escaped a miserable relationship with a woman-child of a girlfriend. I was her chauffeur, her lover, her teacher, her friend, her mom and dad. Fuck that noise! I ain't dealing with that!

    Nowadays, I'm chasing women, going to parties, seeing a lot of eastern Canada, etc. I also believe that I have found my career and will be planning on settling in Ottawa, once I find some work and a place. And this was all because I took a chance and went up there to be with that psycho hose beast.

    This too shall pass, man. You're going to be alright!

  6. I'm going through some of the same thoughts as well right now, but I always find this quote helps me ground myself:
    "At your absolute best, you still won't be good enough for the wrong person. At your worst, you'll still be worth it to the right person"

    Keep swimming, OP :)
