maybe it'll work for you, but I tried that and it failed miserably. Good luck though, I know some people can find a way to make it work.

Takes a lot of forgiveness and a lot of growing up, but it works.    
Obviously there's still immense pain afterwards, but that's there no matter what.   
Getting over jealousy is the hardest bit. Still possible though. In time.  I hope.

The jealousy was what got me. Worked both ways. Got to the point where we got back together even, just because we both kept getting jealous towards each other. Then she cheated on me. I don't like to give advice to internet strangers, because who the **** am I to say what works and what doesn't, but try not to let your jealousy get to you.

Yeah, learning some stuff as I go. She's patient as hell.
I just hope that I can still bring her happiness as a friend. Who she dates and what she does with them is her business.

As long as you're both kind to each other, and good people, it'll be alright, eventually. Well, usually, anyway. I have only dated two women, but I stayed friends with the first since the day we broke up over four years back. Still best friends, she's got a new guy, and I'm fine with that. My other, more recent ex, however... Well. She got a lot of flak for leaving me from my friends, because she was literally the only thing I had in my life. So she started telling people I lied, and cheated on her, and abused her, so as to make her not look like the bad guy.

But you know what's funny? I get bootybothered over the fact that she's with someone else, now. Moving on is complicated, and made all the more difficult if that person is either; A) Not clear with you about what they want and if it's really over, and B) If they're somehow a significant issue, because your mind just keeps going back to caring about the person even if they're a dick.

Dunno why I felt the need to share this. I guess just because I was able to relate to you at one point. Life story!

Well, she was all I had, and she was all I needed, and I was patient for her during our 2.5 year long distance relationship, but now she wants to give her virginity to another man... so **** me, right?

If I could actually hug you, bro, I would. I don't know exactly how you're feeling, but I've found myself in various 			******		 situations with women (oddly enough, the past few weeks have been an especially steamy pile), and all I can tell you is that it helps a lot to find something to take your mind off of it. Just don't do what I did, and become a smoker and an alcoholic, because that just makes you feel 			********		.

Yeah, I know 			****		 like that definitely doesn't help. I just try and find things that make me laugh, and I try not to be put off by all the other 			****		 crashing down on my, like my lack of a job and my declining grades.   
   
To be honest, very recently I've become more okay with my ex and her decisions. We talked about it a lot, discovered some things about each other, and about ourselves as well, and ultimately I'm okay with her making these decisions as long as they're out of love. She trusts him, I trust him, and he's been in her life longer than me. I'm still good friends with her, plan on becoming good friends with him, and she's no less affectionate with me, and we promised to always have a special place in each other's hearts. It sounds sappy, but something like that really means a lot to me. There are also other details, but I don't feel comfortable disclosing them here.    
   
All in all, things have gotten better. I'm accepting being single again, and I just count myself lucky that I still have her in my life. As long as I can make her happy, I know I can be happy.

At least you have that. It's so much better to love someone and be a part of their life, even if it hurts to be so, than to love someone and have to watch from afar. Besides, ultimately, as long as you accept it enough to be happy, or at least happy for her, you're doing well. I'm glad that you're able to have that much.
