why :( - February 27th 2012, 08:16 AM

My girlfriend just broke up with me after dating for 3 years. She was my first and I just feel empty inside.

I'm sorry things aren't going too well for you. Not many things crush you more than losing a partner, especially one you'd been with for such a long time. I know right now it seems like the worst thing in the world and it's very hard to look up at any kind of silver lining but you should try your very best to do so. When something really crappy like this happens, I like to try and turn it into a new opportunity. That way, it doesn't seem as bad and nothing has been wasted, it has just lead on to a new chapter in life.
You're a young lad with your whole life ahead of you. Committing to a 3 year relationship at your age is a big thing! Now's your time to relax, live as an individual, do whatever you want!
You won't be able to fill the void just like that but time is the best healer. You don't need to know how, or when, it'll tell you. Just let yourself go through the natural reactions, don't be ashamed of your emotions and don't keep them in. Talk them through and you'll find yourself back on your feet in no time.
Make sure you get closure too, find understanding in why your relationship has ended or you'll constantly find yourself asking why. I've been there, it's not a fun place to be.

by the title of your post, i am assuming you want to know why she broke up with you or why this is happening to you. for that answer, you will just need to talk to her to find out why she no longer wanted to date.
continually, i want to remind you that you are only 17 years old. you are still so very young. also, people rarely find their permanent mate on their first try. however, the first heartbreak usually does hurt the most. i know it hurts to not have her around anymore in the same way she used to be. i also recently got out of a 3 year relationship with my first serious boyfriend. it feels like you have lost the one person who completely understood you. you just need to go to your friends and family for support. there are other people out there who love you and understand you. do not let your first relationship ruin your life. eventually, you will pick yourself up again and you will be able to try at love again. the first is not the last, hun.
heartache always feels like it will never end. but i promise you that the pain will fade. you just need to be strong and continue living day by day.
