Despite what I said before in my last Question post, my ex really wasn't a good boyfriend at all. I recently talked to a friend who knew him longer than I did and enlightened me even more about what he was really like. It made me feel foolish for trying to be as understanding about his shortcomings as I was when we dated. But it's all over now and that's what's important.
Exactly a week after I posted that drama-and-confusion-filled Question post, I finally broke it off with my ex, right after we got back from the midnight showing of New Moon (I know, pathetic). It didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped it would (I cried, he held it in, and we hugged) but I was just glad it was OVER. I'm human though, so I still felt sad and guilty about it, but the support from my crush the days leading up to the breakup helped, and he was right there for me the next day at school. I was at the other campus that day, and he went out of his way to drive up there to see me and make sure I was okay. He made me feel instantly happy and safe, and still does to this day, nearly four months later.
He and I seem to have a genuine connection. He figured me out pretty quickly (what I'm thinking, why I do the things I do, etc) He loves to say things that make me blush, usually simple compliments about my eyes or smile. He's a little tougher to read due to his somewhat secretive personality, but I'm starting to understand the way he thinks now too, so it's all good. We simply make each other happy, from hugging and kissing to 'fighting' over who pays for food (he often insists lol). We really can't get enough of each other, and I've never been happier. This is true happiness, not the delusional happiness that I believed I had with my ex.
I just thought I'd let anyone who was interested and familiar with my situation know how I was doing in my new relationship. :)
