i want to start dating him but i dont want to end up hurting him again
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
ok.. im still really into my ex. and i know for sure hes still in love with me. he always calls me just to talk and we hang out alot. we've gone out a bunch of times always breaking up for something really stupid. but the final time he dumped me was because i cheated on him with some other guy.. on his birthday.. with him right next to me.. yes i know thats probably the dumbest thing i've ever done. but its not like he knew what was happening.. i confessed to him later about what i did because i couldnt live with myself for doing it. we talked it through i said im sorry plenty of times but we agreed never to go out again because it was too hard for him always worrying about me doing stuff with other guys. its not like i am a slut or anything but i had just started hanging out with a new crowd.. im definately one of the most modest of them all but it is still hard to not flirt once in a while with some of the guys. my ex hated the new "popular" crowd and he wanted me to be happy with them so he decided we would make a deal not to date eachother again because it was too hard. and neither of us has had other girlfriends/boyfriends since. but then we couldnt get enough of eachother and we were always together. in the hall at school, football games, etc. we flirt alot but we still have that promise we made eachother. i think about him everynight before i go to sleep and sometimes cry myself to self because i miss what we had. i dont know what to do because i want to start dating him but i dont want to end up hurting him again. Any advice? Thanks.
My advice is to get back together with him and don't hurt him again.
Getting back together may be easier than you think. Tell him that you miss him and sometimes cry at night thinking of him.
Promise him you will never hurt him again and then keep your promise.
These two things should get your relationship back where it was.
