As all other of us Im sorry to hear your story. But there is something more that just a sadness after losing someone you love, in your post.
For me there is some kind of peace that you have achieved. You are in touch again what means that both of you have accepted what happened or at least learnt how to deal with it.
Was it love by the way my friend?...
LoneStranger there is no use to ponder if it was love or not now. That story or relationship between those two people has been finished and digging into it will not bring any good. What is the aim or analyzing something what cannot be changed.
Let Manga to keep the best memories from that big chunk of time. 8 years its a plenty of time...
They spent it together living in a happy relationship.
Now she left you like a robot?...nothing went ahead in between?
Nobody leaves like a robot. Its not a decision you make over one day. Sometimes we are so deep in living "the dream" that we do not allow ourself to see the reality. You let your senses to fall asleep because its easier to dream. But thats not a point either.
Back to Manga. Dont worry man, you will be just fine. As other people say the love will come to you one more time. You learnt a lot from your last relationship - thats your chance to be really happy in your future.
I wish I could be so spunky and strong as you are.
So people, polish woman are the best in world they are hard to get but when you have love from one it is like a dream... just keep care because if you lost it maybe you will not come over it. Be allways good to your Polish girl and show her always that you love her much even after 10 years, trust me buy flowers or something and tell her that you still love her much
My respect to you for looking ahead. Big hug :)
