Cycling is only part of the answer, time is probably the real answer.
yeah it's true...once you get past the misery of being dumped, which we've ALL been through, you'll realize there are good things about being single. I'm single,childless and even though i live in a basement apartment with no closet space, i'm poor and all that....all i have to do is watch "John and Kate plus 8" and realize how i wouldn't change places with those people for ANYTHING!
okay,there are sucky things about being single...but there are sucky things about NOT being single.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
There must have been somethings about your girlfriend that you don't like (for example, infidelity).
Now, those things are HIS problem.
Agh... I didn't feel like there was a lot of problems with her! She was a little nuts, but that's what I liked about her!
But you guys have been a great help... I guess since that this is my first breakup it's a lot harder to get through, but this and a bit of time and friends really help.
With all the women cyclists you should have no problem.
It's better that It happened now than say after 10 years of marriage. I know a guy who experienced that. Really devastting especially with kids and stuff. The guy had to get some therapy to cope with his distress.
Did you live with your girlfriend. It hurts more then than if you just dated.
I've never had a girlfriend leave me but can certainly sympathize with your loss. On the other hand....there's another bus coming soon..................Come on look at it this way: she wasn't meant for you. So in effect there is no real loss at all. Cheer up and have some fun. You are a free man again.
I find when I'm stressed I ride my bike and sometimes I scream out my problems and things feel so much better. You should scream out your anger at her. No one is going to hear you on a quiet country road. It's very therapuetc.
