Dear Annie: My girlfriend, ”Sophie,” and I broke up three months ago after a five-year relationship because of my inability to commit. While we were together, I was brutally honest about how I felt, even though I hated how unhappy she was listening to me. Sophie and I have taken multiple short breaks in the past. I saw her last month and apologized. I told her I had made the mistake of my life by letting her go. Apparently, I needed substantial time to realize what was important to me. Unfortunately, Sophie told me she no longer sees a future for us and asked me to stop calling. She said she’d contact me when she was ready to be friends.
