I am 41, she is 43.
We had an incredible romance for the first six months. Soon after, anything that involved her parents took precedence; holidays, anniversaries and special plans consistently got canceled.
My anger got the best of me; her stubborness did. I also put up walls, preventing effective communication due to being so hurt. That said, we had fun together and were quite close.
Bottom line, I can get by anything and everything in a relationship. She cannot. We are no longer together.
The connectivity we had even towards the end was second to none, during the four year we were actually together.
I cannot get over this very beautiful, wonderful lady off my mind. I would settle for losing out to parents on holidays and the like, just to be with her.
She says no shot. So, any shot or do I move on? The latter is easier said than done...
