My girlfriend of 2.5 years left to get back with he ex
I had been dating a woman who I truly believed was the love of my life for 2.5 years, during this time we went through a lot of emotional challenges. Her mother recently passed away and I was there by her side every step of the way. I was there at the hospital, by her side on her death bed and during the funeral. I supported and loved her as best as I could. We were having troubles after her mother passed away since emotionally she had a lot to deal with. I did my best to love and support her. Through out the relationship I felt in spite of making her my priority she never reciprocated a similar sentiment. I truly committed to her and was planning a wedding unbeknown to her with my family.
A month ago she went on a trip and just before that we had a fight which led to her breaking up with me, which she did on a weekly basis, I tried calling her several times before she left to reconcile but she did not agree. A few days before the fight I remember her saying to me "I love you deeply and that much I know." I thought I would give her the space she needs and continue our relationship once she came back. During that trip she decided to visit her ex in a different country and get back with him. She never called me to tell me of this and when I called she didn't pick up. A few days later she texted me saying she had moved on, she was very happy and that she was back with her ex, a man who cheated on her multiple times. After all that we had been through and all the love and support I gave her she dropped me so callously for her ex. I feel devastated, one day we were talking marriage and naming our kids and within a few weeks she was in the arms of her ex...
I truly loved her and looking back I get a feeling that she might not have. I believed it for my own sake but in her mind she was not where I wanted her to be.
I need to move on but the memories and questions keep haunting me...? Any thoughts or sharing of past experiences would be much appreciated.
