It’s been around six weeks since my girlfriend and i split. Together for 1 year 7 in her early 20’s, me in my late 30’s!! We were very good as a couple but i suffered from depression and had a breakdown. Although she stuck by me, it was too much for her in the end. We work together and she now blanks me.
