Aliya Brown has passed the one-year mark in getting over someone she loved. She hasn't had contact with her ex in months, and his birthday just passed. Some days are easier than others. Brown, a graduate student at New York's Baruch College, says she broke up with her boyfriend thinking that they would get back together, but unbeknownst to her, he was dating and about to enter into an exclusive relationship with a new person.

I will always love him but I am done with this man.
