Two years ago, I was in a relationship with a guy who had been with me for the past 5 years of my life. We had met when we were really young and I had gotten so used to his presence that I never really questioned whether I actually loved him or not. And I never really bothered to think about where things would go for us until the day he suggested that we should get engaged. I was a little shocked at the suggestion even though I couldn’t really come up with a reason for feeling this way. We had been together for 4 years.

I had never had another guy in my life and neither did I plan to be with another guy in the coming years. I asked for some time to think and that’s when everything started to get weird for me. I kept having an unusual feeling in my stomach. I couldn’t eat and I couldn’t even sleep properly.

My focus at work shifted and every time I thought about making this decision, I started to feel numb. I couldn’t come up with one single reason to say no to him. I couldn’t come up with one single reason for why this felt like such a hard decision even though everyone I knew (all my friends and family) had always assumed that we would be together forever.

I couldn’t understand what the problem was until I finally realized something: my intuition was trying to tell me something. It was trying its best to catch my attention. *Continue reading on next page*
