I broke up with my boyfriend a month ago. He is 37 and I’m 26; I come from a conservative family in India, and he is Canadian. We went out for 5 months and it broke my heart when he said that we should call it off. It’s been a month now and I don’t feel better.
He said that I’m looking for a father figure and that he feels that he is ‘in control’ in the relationship and that though he could get comfortable with that, it’s not what he thinks he needs. I feel rejected and so broken-hearted that I don’t ever want to get into a relationship ever again. I can’t bring myself to feel any better.
Is this what love is? Or is this infatuation?
I am sorry you are hurting but I think your ex-boyfriend did you a service by being so honest with you. That is rare. And perhaps my saying this will make you miss him even more, but there is another way to look at this. A Sagittarian way, which should work well for your Sun in Sagittarius conjunct Neptune. You just need a new story.
Here is your story:
I met this guy, I fell in love, he rejected me and now I am crushed.
Here is mine which you are welcome to substitute for yours:
She met a foreign man. He was older than her and she loved him. He told her stories of far away places which enchanted and educated her. Five months passed and he had to go. He had other people to meet and so did she. So they said goodbye sweetly and went on their separate journeys both knowing that no matter what, they were richer for having met and believing that if it were so destined, they would meet again.
