I was dating a girl for a year and a half besides minor

Customer Question

I was dating a girl for a year and a half besides minor fighting here and there we were awesome for each other. Over the last month I had a bad span of anxiety where I couldn't even really leave the house. She had a hard time with this and maybe not getting the attention I used to give her. Last week we got into a fight and I said things I may regret for a while. Saying that she's acting like a child about all of this and I'm tired of her. She took this to heart and broke up with me. She blocked my number and everything. The other night I woke up with a text message from her saying she's very heartbroken and wishes I didn't say any of that because it hurt her so bad. I called her later that day to address it and she said she was just lonely and shouldn't have sent that message. I started talking to an old friend and posted a picture on instagram with another girl and she was very very mad at me and it led to her saying she didn't love me anymore. Now for the questions. Should I keep fighting for her? Should I give her space? Should I move on? Does it seem like she's doing this for my attention since I didn't give it for so long? Please help I'm a mess. Just last week we were telling each other we loved each other.

I went to talk to her at work. She cracked a laugh a couple times. And even started crying a few times when I was talking to her about it. I really feel like I hurt her and I just want her to give me another chance. I feel like she still loves me by her actions but she says otherwise.

My thoughts are, all you can do is try. If you want her back though, he probably should not be talking to other girls. If I were you, I would offer a heartfelt apology, ask for her forgiveness, and then give her space and time to go around. I would Decide first how long that might be
Expert:  John-Michaels replied 5 months ago.
I would not put my life on hold for too long waiting on her once I have apologized. All you can do is what you can do. Does that make sense to you?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Yeah I suppose it does make sense. Maybe just wait a week or two to see if she comes around, right? This might be hard for you to answer but, from what little info I told you, does it sound like she has lost my feelings for me? Or does it sound like she unsure of me now?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Typo correction: does it sound like she has lost all feelings for me?
Expert:  John-Michaels replied 5 months ago.
I don't think she has lost all feelings for you. To be honest, it sounds like she's a little self centered. But then, aren't we all...
