‘I’ve had a rough couple of weeks. You know, pretty heartbroken, pretty sad,’ Megan said on Friday. 

‘Did all of my crying for the whole of 2019. But I’ve been trying to keep myself busy, getting my motorbike license and getting a puppy,’ Megan said.   

Megan said the former couple are trying to stay friends, but as a romantic item, they simply don’t work.

‘I’m really glad that we tried again, just to make sure, but when it doesn’t work out… And I’ve never done this before. If it doesn’t work out, it’s over,’ she said. 

‘I think, if it’s this hard… It shouldn’t be this hard. It’s a slog. If it just makes you both unhappy, what’s the point of that?’

‘He was so confident that we were meant to be and he fought really hard for it and there were things in our relationship that I wasn’t happy with and he said that he would change and give it another go.’

‘I felt like I owed it to him, to the relationship and to myself to try again.’  

Megan said she’s happy to be single for a while now as she wants a serious romance and no longer wants to date just for fun.
