    This just means you get to buy yourself something instead if buying him something. Also, you get to makeout with EVERYONE on new years, not just the old ball and chain.

    I'm sure it sucks, but better to know now than right after the holidays if you ask me. But what do I know, I've always been single this time of year (like most other times).

    Just did it, broke up after 4 years...sucks it had to be over the holidays, but that can not be the reason for dragging it out any longer. Breaking up sucks, not matter the time of year.

    I did this about 2 weeks ago. I couldn't fake the feelings and I wouldn't ever want to tie his memory with Christmas when I can't bring myself to go on.

    I feel like complete shit for it, but we talked about it, and it's at least honorable for me to be completely honest and open rather than wasting our time, or worse, faking it until the next thing came along.

    Uh.. yeah. Once with a girl on Dec 6 3 years ago (6 months to the date) and just with my boyfriend last week. I would prefer to do it afterwards because it just doesn't give you enough time to be used to being single again. A positive is, that its that time of year when you are surrounded by friends and family that love you and it will help you move on faster. Just keep busy! Sitting home alone with a pumpkin roll and christmas movies is only going to make you feel worse that you are single now! Good luck.


    BTW... im doing fine. thanks to a good support system.

    Twice. It was crappy, and I was a real glutton for punishment. If I was going to be sad at Christmas, I was damned well going to be sad at Christmas.


    ..so I was, lol!

    My dad broke up with my mom at Xmas time, when I was 17.
    The year after, my girlfriend, who I had been deeply in love with for the last three years, broke up with me at Xmas time.

    Years after, as a divorced dad, Xmas was breaking my heart as I was not with my boys.

    But this year will be the first time I don't fear to feel pain for XMas, and it's a great feeling

    Christmastime has definitely been soured for me as well. Last year around this time my father went into a deep depression related to speculation on the impending changes in health care, as it affects his business. He basically told my mother, sister and I that his business was failing and that things would have to change for a while. On January 4th 2010, he took his own life.

    It's terrible. Sorry for your loss, and for how you have to feel in this time of year.
    Don't stay alone, sometime the first anniversary is when feelings and sorrow come back on you at full force.

    Their loss. You seem a catch. But a girlfriend IMed me tonight that she broke up with the guy she was seeing. They were getting pretty serious, but it was obvious he had some hang ups so she broke up with him. She's not happy about it.
