Aw. I'm so sorry for you!
Three years is a very long time, especially if it was sudden for you. It's hard to get back into a normal routine and get used to being without someone who you've been with that long. Hard thing to cope with. I wish you the best in recovering and big hugs to you!
My longest relationship is right now -- it'll be 7 years next month. However, my longest one that ended
would technically be my little ol' relationship that wasn't really a relationship, but we claimed each other & exchanged gifts and love letters regularly, which lasted for 3 years. LOL. It began when we were in the 5th grade, and strangely enough, as soon as we "offically" became boyfriend and girlfriend, we never talked in person! LOL. We would sit together at school & hold hands, but we would never speak. Ha Ha Ha. Talk about awkward. So we used letters to talk -- millions of them. We were both shy. I ended it in the 7th grade for.. ahem... lack of conversation. Ha Ha. Neither of us weren't shy around the other. We even danced at dances all the time, but never spoke!
Anyways, that was an interesting relationship there. Soon after breaking up, I had me a new boyfriend. One who talked! Lol. The no-talking boyfriend was very kind-hearted and sweet & he still lives in the same area (as do I) today & is still a good, kind person. He ended up finding him a new girlfriend when we got to high school & as far as I know, they're married now! I bet they talk. LOL.
So that was technically the longest besides this one now. I did have more serious relationships after that, but none lasted longer than 2 years. One was 1 year & another like 9 months. Never too long until my current partner.
