sorry to hear man :(
NO! If you want her back go to her! If you don't and just want to smooth it over then appologize whatever way you feel is right.
you must have not read what she had said...

im not gonna turn this into a battle... leaving now

I don't understand why you guys broke up though! Long distance is too much for you guys?

we origionally broke up because I left for college. we have just been friends since.

Being 6 hours (by car, 12 hours by bus) away makes it very hard to just go see her.

i'll respond more in the morning.

If you really liked/ loved her, you should have stuck with it! Although after her comments to you from breaking up with her, maybe you might want to rethink that! I'm leaving in two weeks and won't see Chad for 6 1/2 weeks and then after that a whoel year bc he'* going over to Iraq, but we know after he gets back he'* moving to whatever state I'm stationed in and he'll get a job or re-enlist in the Army. That'* what I'm saying, if you know you guys won't be together most likely, when you're done with school or whatever, then maybe it'* not worth holding on to, but otherwise, if you had something good, you should have held onto it! Ok I talk to much, I'm sorry! wish ya luck man!! If it was meant to be it'll be!

Hrm... not too sure what to say to this one buddy. If you'd like some more indepth, personal advice, just give me a call, or I can stop over tomorrow if you don't have class 12-2. Sounds like you need to step back and consider what was said, what the outcome was, and what would it take to make her understand where the issues/miscommunication/misinterpreted statements were and what you really were trying to say.

Let her cool off, then do your best to apologise. But be ready for the possibility of no longer being her friend.

BEST ADVICE:

Talk to another woman about this (Melissa, you've been doing an outstanding job *thumbs up*) because they know what the woman is really saying and wants to hear. They also know the Do'* and Don'ts in a situation like this and several have been listed in previous posts above.

Best of luck to you, I'd go see her if I were you, it would still score points with her whether she wants it to or not

Be off, Young Grasshopper, may your adventures be plentiful and we hope to have you back alive on BC when and IF you return

Without knowing a whole lot more about the situation, I'd say give her a week or two to cool off. Let her start to miss you a bit, and then APOLOGIZE PROFUSELY if you believe this was all your fault.

Good luck!
