Getting Over A Break Up

29

Hello guys. I am really going through a lot right now. I have only had two serious relationships. I didn't actually love my first girlfriend so breaking up with her was less drenching emotionally. Perhaps because I found out she was a 'runs girl' and a big liar. Same thing can't be said about my next girlfriend whom I discovered months later and happens to be my second. Believe me guys when I say this girl was all I ever wanted in a lady. Pretty, affectionate and supportive. We planned on getting married and settling down once things kick into gear but unfortunately, things aren't going as planned. It's unsurprising how she consciously browses through social media showing me pictures of her friends and cousins who were beginning to get married. Coupled with the frequent reminder from her family about bringing home a man. This became too much for me as my mental health was becoming a mess. Consequently, I sat her down and told her point blank that she should be more open minded to potential suitors rather than buying into the dream of us settling down when things kick into gear. Of course no one knows when this will happen. She was disgusted by my submission and I felt terrible knowing this was someone that loved me dearly. To cut the long story short. We're no longer on talking terms and it's been on for more than 3wks. I take full responsibility for instigating this. My reason is that I want her to get married quickly as that is what her family wants for her and age is beginning to catch up (she's in her mid 20s). I'm also unable to meet most of her financial desires(she's contented with what I offer). It's not been easy for me going through this emotional breakdown. I think about her everyday and wish things were a bit different. I've lost my appetite during this breakup window. I feel every urge to return and continue the relationship but I won't be doing her any good. I've tried all sort of distractions to tilt my mind further away from her but it feels like it won't go away. Please what do I do guys?
