    after , before

    Hello,

    I have had two relationships by now and both of them ended after me going somewhere.

    Could you please explain the sentence I underlined. Is the stlye used correct? Does it mean 'after I went somewhere?'

    Thanks...

    "I have had two relationships by now and both of them ended after me going somewhere."
    This is not a natural sentence.

    The reason why is 'after me going somewhere', is that right?

    "I had two relationships by now and both of them ended after me going somewhere."

    "I had two relationships by now" is also incorrect.

    I assume it's supposed to mean "I have had two relationships and they both ended when I went away" or something similar.
