I have never been one for confrontation, always easy going and have always been one to let people walk all over me without any grudges. My ex and I have been apart for almost 2years now and i have this built up hatred for him and his girlfriend ( she was my bestfriend). I don't know how to get past this. My mom keeps telling me i need to start dating but i don't want a man in my life right now. it wouldn't be fair to anyone until i can get me situated. how long did it take you ladies to get over your ex? fully recover? i thought after 2 years it would be all better but i still have days i just want to curl up under my blanket and hide.
