I regret breaking off with my girlfriend

Sep 11, 2012, 06:42 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 27 and was in a relationship with a girl for two years. She did talk about marriage but I kept putting it off.

As a result, we broke up. I recently spotted her with a guy I know from social media. To make matters worse, I don’t like this person and often end up arguing with him on online forums as our views differ a lot. I don’t know why it bothers me now that she’s not my girlfriend but his! I feel disappointed at losing her to a jerk like him. It troubles me deeply.

Dear Murtaza,
Grow up man and get a life. First of all you alone are to blame for the state of affairs. She seemed committed and serious about you. But did you show any interest? You didn’t so she moved on. Now when she has found someone else, you are pointing a finger at her guy. You label him a jerk, but remember you are a bigger jerk for having lost her. She has moved on because of your own doing, so I suggest you, too, move on in life. It is too late to regret now.
