Thank you so much for the replies.
I do know that my happiness depends on me, and that no matter what happens I will be happy and loved, even if I never find someone else for the rest of my life. That being said, I just spent a while sitting here staring at Ibelieve's reply trying to figure out what I mean by waiting. In general, I'm not really ready to date someone else at this point and one-night stands simply aren't my thing. Also, I'm in another country for school until the end of summer, so nothing serious makes sense. I'm not opposed to dating at this point, I just haven't really felt like it. I have been trying to focus on me and my life, and I know that if he does come back things have to change. Already I've been trying to change myself and I feel like I have done quite a bit of overdue maturing.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I have no idea what I'm doing. By waiting I mean I'm not letting go to the hope that it might work out, but I can't really explain how that is. So, um, yeah.
Thank you so much for that. Really, you've gotten me to think about this in a way that I haven't done yet. Thank you.
