I moved to DC with my boyfriend over 4 years ago. At the time, we had our future together planned out. After some family turmoil, he left his job, family and me to pursue his opportunities elsewhere and to deal with his issues. In the process, he walked all over me and treated me like shit. It took me a while to deal with everything he did to me. I don’t see my situation as love lost in a negative way though.
This situation opened me up to an amazing life in DC & I now consider this “new” city my home.
