"My boyfriend told me he loved me," Denise wailed, "so how can
he turn around the next week and say he needs his space?" Easy. He meant he
cared at one moment, but that didn't mean it would last forever. While it's
never easy, and always disappointing, you must learn to move on when love ends
for your lover but not for you.
The first and most important question you should ask yourself after a
rejection is: "Why waste myself on someone who doesn't want me?"
And if you are the one initiating the breakup, why waste time and energy for
both of you? If you thought you were wild about someone, but are now having
doubts, what do you do? What's the best way of disentangling yourself, while
being both firm and kind?
