    Me and my ex started dating after I had been through some rather traumatic stuff. I was vulnerable and depressed, although he didn't know that. He chased me and I couldn't believe my luck. He was literally my dream man and every time I looked at him all I could think was how I never want him to leave me.

    I fell for him and for a while it was obviously mutual.

    Then he dumped me. I'm still not entirely sure why, but he did and it hurt a lot.

    Now 6 weeks on I'm still hurting a lot. I still dream of him and the thought of him seeing new women (I don't know if he is yet or not) makes me want to die.

    I really don't know how to get over this :s I'm 19 btw and this was a uni relationship, it's the summer now.

    Time heals all wounds.

    Have you asked him why?
    Just becayse it was mutual at the time doesnt mean it had the legs to stay so.
    Its only natural for most relationships to end, especially at an early age.
    I wouldnt be so sure he didnt figure out you were depressed or needy.
    You dont say how long you were together.

    Contact your uni social services or the Samaritans if you feel you might do soemthing silly or you wnat someone to listen to you.

    It will get better in time, even if it hurts now. Hang in there.
