Is it normal to feel like you can’t love again
So I got out of a relationship a few months ago where I got cheated on and I have felt less heartbroken about the subject then just utterly empty. For some backstory, me and this girl started dating in this small town and she’s always wanted to see the bigger world. We then make the decision to move back to my home state where there’s a lot of big city’s and experiences. But about 8 months of living out here she cheats on me which was a total curveball but I guess new situations can affect somebody majorly like that and I can understand that.
Now this wasn’t the first time I’ve been cheated on, actually has happened many times in my long relationships of the past, but this one just left me empty. I figured I would groove out of those emotions but this happened back in august and I’m still just detached from feeling attraction or love. I still get lustfull but I feel that’s more my “male instincts” than my actual self. I’ve also came to questioning if I just lost attraction to girls. I don’t think I like guys and being in my mid 20s seems weird to me to be questioning those things. I think I want to be with a girl one day but I just have such a bad history with all my girlfriends that it makes it hard to trust that again.
Is it normal to just be this lost at what I’m looking for and being this shell of a person for this long?
