My ex-girlfriend left for college today. I went to her house before she left so that I could say goodbye. It wasn't just any goodbye, not like, "Goodbye, have a good trip, I'll see you online." It was a goodbye for good, with the possibility of never seeing/communicating with her again. I asked her not to send me any e-mail or instant messages. I have to try to forget her, because it hurts so much every time I think about her and how she doesn't have the same feelings for me that I have for her. We tried being "just friends", and I think it was working okay for her, but it wasn't working for me. I think I did a pretty good job of hiding it, but I couldn't handle that for much longer. I hope that eventually I can forget how much I loved her, so that I can be friends with her again.
