The last weekend we spent together, we moved my things into my new place. She stopped dead in her tracks at one point and told me that she really thinks we're going to be alright. She says this is what she needs. I am so afraid that she is just using this time to get over me. We have agreed that if she knows the answer to the question of if she can have a relationship with me or not, she will let me know immediately. We are both devastated at not being together but she says we have to break the cycle. In your experience, do couples in this situation most often get back together and do better, or do they just go their separate ways? I guess I'd rather know the statistics now so I can decide if I should be using this time to get over her. I can't even imagine how truly devastated I will be if I give her this time and just wait, just so she can tell me at the end of 4 months, that it is over for good. How do you even proceed in a situation like this? How do you even get past the broken heartedness?
