so sad. After months of crying over him she decided she did not want to hurt anymore and broke it off. I know it wasn't easy for her at all but he is a wreck. She is sad too but is not getting anxiety attacks anymore like she was. I feel so bad and I don't want to be sad about this because I care for him as a son and I feel like she really hurt him. She said she was hurting for months and felt like he has three more years of college and she is only in high school . I know it was brave of her to do but I feel so bad and sad.

I'm not sure what advice you're seeking. It is sad for two people who love each other to be apart, and it is often difficult to maintain a relationship while going to different schools. If she feels she did the right thing, then support her and try to get her spirits up. If it's meant to be, maybe they'll reconnect later.

My husband and I went to High School together. I was a Freshman, and he was a senior. We liked each other, but we never had anything serious. We had many of the same friends over the years, but we didn't really hang out together. We each married other people, got divorced, and then we found each other again. Now we are so much in love and have our lives together ahead of us. It is sad to think that maybe we lost all that time we could have been together, but we may not have ended up the same people we are today. We learned and grew, and now we're probably a lot better for each other than we otherwise would have been.

Now, if your daughter doesn't get back together with this guy, then she can still find another great guy. Something told her to end it, so you have to trust that it was the right thing.

Yes Raye Ramsey you are right. It is just hard. I know they are both hurting but it was bound to happen. She is not even out of high school yet it is probably better that it happened now. She said she still loves him and wants him in her life but I know that will be hard for him. Guys usually have a hard time staying friends when the still love someone it just hurts too much.
