So, like, i went out with this guy for 2 monthes. I broke up with him yesterday and Idk what to do. He always played games on the computer and on his phone and ds. and i felt like he would choose his games over me.When i broke up with him i cried and he didnt care and he just acted like nothing haappened. i felt hurt about that. and now idk what to do. im sad and i keep thinking of him.
Don't falter in your resolve. You were totally right to make that decision. The guy needs to get his priorities straight, and it's not your job to help him do that in a relationship. So first off, bravo for letting him go!
On the other hand, it can be hard afterwards. A few main things: don't blame yourself. It's not your fault the relationship started; it's his fault that the relationship ended. It's okay to be upset about it. Let yourself cry about it, allow yourself to feel the hurt. It's okay. It won't be this way forever. You need to make the choice to heal and move on. If you find yourself thinking about it, zone in on the positive qualities for a bit. What did you like about the relationship? Make a list if you want. Then you'll have a reference to go back to when you're looking for traits in another potential guy.
Honestly, the main thing is, hang in there. Stay strong. You're okay.
I must agree, that boy, who is clearly not yet a man needs to grow up. So I pray you stand strong in your decision and never return to him.
I would just find someone else that is your type and does pay attention to you.
you did the right thing for you and him. if he wasn't thinking of you, than he isn't ready. but you will find a great guy who will adore you! keep your head up! :)
I have a huge prob. I like the guy I broke up with. He seem to have straightened the path. i mean he still plays games, but less then before. I want to go back, but I dont know what to do or say to him.
Ask him out again? Or just try&forget him.
Omg. i think hes playing footsie with me.
Ness......footsies doesn't mean anything
Sorry that I didn't see this sooner. I'm late to the party but I must say that I disagree with the breakup. This is my advice. I'm a jock, but I am also a gamer. Gaming could be a release for him or even (as it is for me) a way to see a unique story while actually interacting in it. However unless he actually said it, I doubt he would chose them over you. Personally speaking about him not crying, I haven't cried over any break up so far not even a long one; yet I go all-out for any any girl that I'm in a relationship with, so two months is short. And lastly is what I really wanted to say. If you were by chance his first girlfriend then he wouldn't know exactly what to do, none of us young men that started off dating knew anything about it, but what we saw others do perhaps. All I'm saying is, if you still like him then ask him can y'all get back together, and this time make sure you talk, explain, nag, (and any other synonym to talk) to him about how you are feeling in the relationship, and if he doesn't change at all within time, then just breakup with him again. If you give me more details about him I can give the appropriate advice, but I really don't think this guy is that bad. P.s. I personally think that footsie could mean something lol, after all kissing doesn't have to mean anything.
Also late but, hon, if he didn't care no boy is worth crying over. The saying goes: A boy who makes you cry isn't worth it but the one that does won't make you cry. If you want to get back together with him join in with his games(date night at my house is always video games), but if they become obsessive then maybe it isn't time to date him right now.
