So i was walking home earlier, and I was stuck at a stop light by the racetrack, me and this older man. He had 2 bikes, 1 he was riding and one he was holding as he rode. He started up a conversation with me, mostly small talk about how nice of a day it was. But as we talked, I felt inclined to ask why he had two bikes. So I did. And, still smiling and pleasant, he went on to explain that him and his wife had been biking nearly every day for the last 22 years, and that she had died from breast cancer a few years ago. He said going out just didn't feel the same anymore without her. So wherever he goes, he makes sure to bring her bike along. We talked a bit more and he Rode off. I saw him again as I walked past burger king. He was sitting outside next to the bikes, eating alone.

This i actually a huge fear I have. It's like 'Up' if my potential 'Ellie' died, I don't know how I'd carry on.

I'm only 17, but if I lost my girlfriend, I don't know what the **** I would do, and these thoughts concern me a lot actually.

I know exactly how you feel mate. Theres a special someone who has my heart and her and I went through a very bad period in which we fought a LOT and then stopped talking for a LONG while. Like, months. The entire time, I felt empty and alone. I mean REALLY alone. My grades slipped, I was doing heavy drugs, drinking, and basically 			*******		 any woman I wanted like a filthy man whore. I just had this deep hatred for myself. Then, about a month ago we started talking again. But I feel like 			****		 right now because we literally JUST got into out first fight after the time apart.  I'm extremely worried and scared. I feel your pain jinjo

Actually that happened to me before, lost my virginity to her and all that, lost her, had sex with 13 other people until I met my current girlfriend, who I love to no end.

But me and the 'first girl' kind of have a mutual respect and care for eachother, just not grounded in any romance or intimate feelings anymore, that said I still care about her a great deal.

But I mean in death. I could handle a break up, it would break my heart, and I'd be ****** up for a while, but she'd be able to move on, and eventually so would I. Bt if she actually died. How do you go about that? How could you move on?

How do you ever find interest in some one else after some one you oved so much died with you, you were still together. How do you stop feeling like you're with that person? And how can somebody ever forget that love if that love wasn't ended?

These are my fears.

Death is a weird thing. Im 17 as well and lost my mom to Cancer a few weeks ago. While she was suffering with the Cancer I knew that it wasnt looking good and absolutely could not fathom losing her. Now that she is gone I see that life is fragile. You have to look at the positives and you can let an unfortunate event stop you from doing what you love doing.

I am so sorry to hear that :/

Yea, some one's passing can be seen as a good thing, when my grumpss died it took a while, but I realized him staying alive suffering was worse.

and I completely agree with you. I mean, the person passed away WHILE in a relationship with YOU. You didn't chose to end the relationship. It's so strange.
