    So, I was in an LDR for 9 months. She's at university/college in New York; i'm in London. She decided to end things on valentines day which broke my heart. I was devistated. It's profoundly more difficult when you're the dumpee, as it's usually unexpected (in my case it was).

    Well, she ended things due to the lack of proximity, and, honestly, I understood where she was coming from. She basically said that, in 9 months, we'd only seen each other once and that was when she made the effort to come to London. However, i'd already told her that this year would be different (i'm in my final year of A levels and as a result, my Mum was not willing to let me go). So, I managed to convince my Mum to let me purchase tickets to NY (i'd actually saved up money from a part-time job), and i'll be seeing her in April.

    So, we're on talking terms again. And, things are going really well. We're practically back to normal (we skype endlessly, just like we use to). We're practically a couple again (however, she says that she'd rather discuss the technicalities of our relationship in person). Now, here's the problem....

    A day after ending our relationship, she slept with someone else. This came as a completely surprise to me. It was totally out of character. She'd never been the type to do this. The fact that I still loved her made it hurt that much more. Apparently there was no sex; it was strictly kissing and "maybe" oral sex (she says that she doesn't quite remember). Then, a few days later she had a brief (like 2 minutes according to her) make out session with the same guy ;( it really hurts...I knew about this prior to booking the tickets btw, and I feel like an idiot for doing so ;( surely if she truly loved me, she wouldn't have done that? Idk..i'm trying to negate the negative thoughts, and on the whole it's going well but sometimes they still creep in..and it really hurts..idk..am I wrong for feeling like this?? I'm trying to exhibit nothing but forgiveness and compassion towards her but I can't deny the fact that it truly does sting (and I never mention the "incident" in our conversations btw)..

    I honestly don't think that's true..again, obviously it COULD be, but I really don't think so..either way, do I have a right to be annoyed about this? What do I do to overcome it? She said that she doesn't want the guy thing to ever be mentioned, and I respect that...but idk, it really does bug me..

    Forget about your girlfriend, she doesn't quite remember if they had oral sex, that's a terrible lie.

    Of course probably means she did, I've had it said to me loads of times from a cheating ex, its that they don't want to face the truth and just say "Yes". Try and forget it.

    Whatever she feels for you is nowhere near what you feel for her.

    Just think about it, can you imagine doing to her what she did to you? Probably not...

    It's a difficult position to be in, I feel for you. You should just go to NY and enjoy yourself, you've worked hard to get the money to go so you owe it to yourself. Just see what happens from there. If things don't go as you hope, don't worry! You're young, it isn't the end of the world. Good luck anyway man!

    Dude, I do feel for you. Seriously. Really sucks to be in the position you're in. How did you start up this LDR in the first place (you here, and she's over in the States?)

    You do have a right to be annoyed. As someone's already said you clearly have deeper feelings for her than she has for you. I'd talk to her again about where you two stand. If you still believe things can work (they might), then I think you're gonna have to trust her again to not make the same 'mistake' again. Then again she also is making you meet her parents which may seem positive. Does she seem apologetic towards you after that 'incident'?

    Personally though an LDR as it is, I'd say to you to be more wary. Start to slowly drift away from her. If she really likes you, she'll sense that you're drifting away from her, and if she wants you, she'll do anything to get you back. This is the best advice I can give to you bro..
    We met at a summer program...i've asked her about where we stand and she says things like "why does everyone have to define everything." And she hasn't really been apologetic at all about the incident ;( yes, she says she regrets it but she hasn't been apologetic..quite the opposite..like, she's been quite aggressive to me at times. Like, there's this guy who has a crush on her, and asks her out on dates (to him they're dates, he clearly likes her) but she says, "no, i'm not attracted to him at all blabla"..she says he's just a friend BUT when I say "why don't you tell him we're dating if he's just a friend blablab" and she says "because i'm not an *******..I don't wanna hurt him blabla..you don't understand blablaba its none of your business you're not even really my boyfriend blabla"...like, idk..idk what to do..its weird because she says "you're not my bf, its none of your business" (despite the fact that i'm travelling over 3000 miles to see her!) to "I love you blabla"...also, she's studying abroad in London from september-december this year for a semester..so yeah..she must like me to do that?? But I just don't understand...

    OP,

    You seem like a nice guy...and simply, too nice.

    She knows you're madly in love with her, and she s abusing her position to no end.

    Instead of asking for your forgiveness, she gives you ultimatums, and tells you that her life isnt your business and that you're not even her bf.

    What's left here exactly? She displays a stunning lack of disrespect to you.

    My advice would be to stop contacting her. See how she reacts.

    And in response to your original point...If you love someone and break up with them, you do NOT give the next guy oral the following day....clearly. And you know this.
