My boyfriend and I have broken up after 4 years together and I feel numb.
We’ve separated because even though we love each other, we’re not “in love” and we both knew it and it was completely emotional.Is it normal the feel this unphased after such a long relationship that was actually really good? Nothing was “wrong” and it wasn’t a messy break up.Am I heartless? What’s wrong with me? We broke up only this evening…

It might hit you in a week or a month and it might not at all.There is nothing wrong with you. My guess is you already “left” the relationship ages ago, at least mentally. So when it actually happened you had already processed the break up.My advice? DO NOT jump into anything new for a GOOD long while. Take your time to process it all and be OK with the break up.It’s OK to NOT fall apart when a relationship ends. JUST like it’s OK TO fall apart to. Each of us works through emotions and actions in different ways. There is NO “right” way to think and feel after a break up. OK?Chin up.
