My girlfriend and I have been a couple all of our adult lives (we're 21, our relationship has lasted 3+ years, and I've known her for almost 7 years). For the most part, I thought I was happy in our relationship. I feel that I put our relationship and making her happy over making myself happy. I contributed so much and worked very hard to keep the relationship going smoothly and keep her happy. She did not work as hard or care as much about keeping me happy. She said she loved me and wanted to marry me, and I guess that was all I thought I needed, or wanted for my efforts. I thought we were serious about getting married. I'm almost done with college, and I will be earning a very desirable degree that would have allowed us a comfortable life. We shopped for engagement rings, and I even bought her one that she picked out. I was within weeks of proposing, and she dropped a bomb on me. She said she felt bored in our relationship, she felt like she was in a rut, and she had some feelings she wanted to get out. She said she wanted a break from me for a while. So we broke up, and I don't know if we are getting back together. She still says she knows she wants me in the long run, but how can I believe that? She says she wants to be free for a while, but she has a crush (as she says) on another guy. I'm sure they are seeing each other; I know she has even kissed him. But she still says she knows she wants to be with me in the long run, she just doesn't know what she wants in the short run. This all hurts incredibly. I sacrificed, gave so much effort, and really treated her great in our relationship. Her breaking up with me is not what I deserve. Is she coming back? If so, should I take her back? Even though she hurt me, I have to admit I miss her and want her back. This whole thing is making me very depressed.
