I'm still in love with my ex.
Asked Feb 25, 2012, 06:47 AM
Me and my ex boyfriend were together for on and off 7 years. Him and I were high school sweethearts. We were each others first boy/girl friend, He cheated twice as I cheated twice in retaliation. As the years went on we realized we were just getting back at each other for hurting each others feelings.
I just last year decided that I wanted something else. I wanted a relationship with commitment and maybe an engagement, move in together or something. He had always promised to move in with me but every time I proceeded to look with him when we had the money to do so it'd always end up in an argument and us arguing for an entire weekend or week it seemed like. So I finally just dropped the whole topic.
I ended up meeting a guy who had promised the world to me so I left my first boyfriend for the new guy without hesitations. We started dating a few months after I broke it off with my ex in order for that perfect moment when I thought I was truly "over" my ex. I found out in a few weeks later that he (the ex) was dating a few girls himself. Both ended up being the two girls he had cheated on me with. Of course I was upset but was very happy in my own relationship that I "tried" to look past it.
My boyfriend and I finally got to see each other a few days later because he was in the forces. At first it was amazing at the things that he wanted to do while he was home and see so many people and do so many adventurous things. As the days went on I finally realized that he was just "using" me to get my hard earned money, car, gas, food. You name it I bought it! I was in total shock at how much a person can take advantage and manipulate of a genuine good-hearted person as I had never had it happen before not even by a worst enemy or "friend". So when he finally went back I was completely confused at my feelings for the old and new boyfriend. I decided to drop the new guy after I found out that he was really cruel with his choice of words toward me and others & found out he had cheated & was a compulsive liar & well known for his unpaid debts.
And I wanted to try one more time with my ex. After all, if you can't go one day without thinking about someone to me that is "true love". I felt that I found the type of person that I didn't want and known the type that I did want. Which was exactly what I wanted. But now my ex has been dating this girl who he himself has longed for, for a very long time. She's no good but he doesn't want to listen to me. She's been seen on outings with her and someone (who isn't the ex) & I'm worried it's already too late to do anything.
He says he wants to work on his relationship with her & I'm afraid I've made the wrong decision. But I was under the assumption that if anything was to go wrong between our new relationships, we'd wait for each other and start all over... So should I move on or still keep trying?. I apologize this is forever long but I wanted you guys to get the full story on it..
