The longest time I’ve ever been single was for about 2 years. It was right after a breakup with someone I was completely in love with but he had to leave the country and there was nothing we could do about it. So it took me quite a while to hit the realization that the relationship was over. I don’t think 2 years is a lot but it wasn’t easy at all. I could have simply gone out with other guys during the rebound stage but I was grown up, and I didn’t want to do something that I would regret later on.
