Breaking with ex
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
Ok i went out this this guy for 2 and a half years. Towards the end of the relationship he started to change for the worse, i wasnt sure if it was becasue of me or him. I do think that it was both of us. During this whole situation his best friend and I became very close. We were always friend but we became closer when i would turn to him for help. After careful consideration i decided to break it off with my ex boyfriend. We tried dating but it just didnt feel right, like i just didnt want to be near him at all. So then a few months later, me and his best friend started dating. We have now been going out for 5 months and he is amazing and i never realized how terrible my exboyfriend treated me. But i cant help but feel i didnt give him enough chances, i am not sure if i miss him or not. And lately my ex boyfriend has been really mean and manipulative towards me, but is it only becasue he wants me back? am i better off without him? I also cant figure out how to get over him and how to not feel bad for him, becasue he doesnt really have any friends anymore becasue im dating one of them and he refusesm to speak to him.
You are better of without your ex.
You have a nice new boyfriend and all of your attention should be focussed on him. Think of your ex as little as possible. He is perfectly capable of taking care of himself and probably doesn't want your pity anyway.
It is nice of you to think of your ex but don't do it.
Good luck! George
