Had to leave my gf about two months ago, it wasn't our choice but religion, family, uni and the pandemic all came in the way between us.
In a sense I was relieved because she was overbearing and a bit of a burden at times. Yet this has left me devastated as fuck, I miss her bros.
At least we still talk together, she seems to be moving on - trying a long-distance relationship with a mutual friend of ours, quite happy for them to be honest.
She suggested I should start dating, and so have some of my friends, but it's hard - I think they have a point though.
I've only ever had two relationships, first one was semi-serious and the second one was quite serious (even though we both thought it was just a passing thing), 1.5 yrs and 2 yrs respectively.
In both my exes approached me, I'm quite the shy guy, and I don't know how to talk to people unless I'm on drugs or holding my guitar/singing (ironic, I know).
Even more ironic than that is that I was much more outgoing than my last ex, even though she was the one that initially chased after me - not the other way around.
I'm sorry if I'm rambling too much, I guess what I'm trying to get at is that I can't really talk to people - and by extension can't really talk to women, and I don't know how to remedy this.>inb4 go to clubs
I can't stand the noise, the smell, the sweaty people - it's just horrible.
I'm thinking of opening a profile on a dating app (at the suggestions of my ex and my friend).
But that still wouldn't be enough if I don't know how to talk and "market" myself.
