    Usually it's not a test, just a cop out/excuse/way to deal when things aren't working out.

    idk, the way it's stated, I'm leaving somebody in hopes that they'll chase? seems like a test to me. otherwise I wouldn't hope they'd follow.

    if somebody loved me, they wouldn't leave me. It's pretty much that simple, imo

    Ummmm.

    Although I think it could be true, I dont find it to be a true statement, at all.

    Theres been situations when I know I love someone, but for the better of both of us it'd be better if we were away from each other.

    As a literal statement, no. As a metaphor for trusting the relationship, yes.

    its not saying let them go as in break up, its saying let them go do what they need to do for themselves without letting jealousy and insecurity force you to hold them down.

    if you love someone, trust them.

    .

    you can't force someone to be with you, if they want to leave then let them leave, but don't expect them to come back. if you DO try and force them to be with you, then you're a jealous insecure wacko.

    this line of thinking is akin to "the secret".. there is no fate.. only what you make happen through action. twiddling your thumbs and hopinh he/she returns is moronic.

    It's nice in theory. In reality most people come back for the wrong reasons while the other person never really let go.

    fuck no. its just a lame ass saying to help people cope w. a break up.

    not saying its not possible for someone to come back to you..... but what the fuck does that have to do w. YOU wanting to let them go?

    depends on the circumstances.

    if it's a breakup or something like that, no. if they come back, it's usually not for good reasons.

    however, if it's something like studying abroad or pursuing something that will take them away from you. i can believe it.

    I think it's kinda contradicting. Let them go in your heart, move on, but always cling to the hope that they'll come back because they really love you...:confused:

    I would have to agree with this. My gf is in Australia till Nov, she'e been there over a month now, and I think she has grown as a person and is happy with what she is doing there. So far we have had time to do "our own thing" while still keeping each other in mind/heart. We do the skype thing everyday and we will see each other in July so in that sense I think it can work but I wont really know until Nov.

    This is something similar to what I'm dealing with, so I also agree it depends on the situation. I met an amazing girl from Kazakhstan who's working at the university. It started off light and easy w/ the expectation she'd be leaving and we wouldn't let ourselves get too involved. Now that she may be gone for good in june (or at least three years, same thing imho) I don't want to let her go

    I think that line just hangs on to a thread of someone that should be let go for good.

    A great piece of advice I found says this:

    One chance per woman, per lifetime.
