Egar, from Karaj, Iran
Dear Negar,
These early romances are often very difficult to get over, but there is one thing you might try. When we read a very good book, we are often sad when it is finished because it was such an enjoyable experience. But finished it is. But we don’t need to throw the book away. We may keep it on the shelf and cherish the memories of the beautiful experience that it was.
It could be somewhat the same with the person with whom you are still in love. The similarity is that you must realize that that particular chapter in your life is over with. It was a beautiful experience and beautiful memories remain. But life must go on. There are other books on the shelves that you haven’t read yet. Some of them may be classics. So I think that I would search for another companion, and your past experience will stand you in good stead in developing a new relationship that could be even more exciting and more durable.
