My ex and I separated this past March. We had been talking marriage, however the relationship became long distance when I needed to move to get in state tuition. After my ex completed school he looked for a job in the state where I had moved and was unsuccessful, he took a job where he was and we remained long distance. Our relationship was incredibly strained and many hurt feelings and arguments later we broke things off. Now my question, it's six months later and I haven't gone one day without thinking of him, I can't get past how it crumbled so quickly from forever to nothing. I still believe we were meant to make it and these were arguments that we would have worked through if we were in the same place. Do I continue to maintain my pride? No contact, tough things out? Or do I make a grand gesture? I think an I want you back text would be pretty pathetic coming from afar so my thought would be to go to him, lay it all out there tell him I want us to find a compromise that makes it work?
