We were each other’s first loves. Completely inseparable, we got together when I was 15, and stayed together for 3.3 years, even surviving several months of being in separate cities when I moved away for university. However, he stopped making effort, considered an hour to be “long distance” and he never listened anymore. So I ended it.
Aftermath: He is now with one of my best friends, and I don’t speak to either of them anymore. However, before they got together, I totally upgraded, and what I thought would be merely a fling has blossomed into an amazing relationship that is ironically what I would call real long distance—I am English and my boyfriend is Canadian. We met at university while he was here for the year and I couldn’t be happier with him. He is perfect for me and far exceeds my ex in EVERY way.
