Tales of the Ex @ RomanceClass -
Ex's are Ex's for a reason

I met my now ex-boyfriend at the beginning of nursing school, which started in January of 2008. It wasn't until the end of February that we actually hooked up. We started out as friends and "study buddies," then things ran their course. After 3 months, I found out that his ex-girlfriend was still in contact with him. Perhaps it had been going on and I didn't notice it until then. So, I hear the conversation--he talked to her right infront of me--she was telling him that her sister was sick and in the hospital. Before he hung up, he told her, "If you need anything at all, please call me." He had told me before how terrible that relationship was and how much agony it caused him and how she cheated on him, so for him to say that to her, it made me feel that he was inviting her back into his life. Since we were in Nursing school, our clinical rotation happened to be at the very same hospital in which he ex-girldfriends sister was. We rode to class that day together, and he LEFT me in the car...while it was cold...so he could go back into the hospital to see her sister. He never invited me to go in with him. That was strike one
I broke up with him, and a few days later he came back and apologised. I let it go and continued our relationship. I got into the whole commitment subject and expressed my feelings regarding ex-girlfriends and etc. He then told me he didn't want to commit. I told him that if he wasn't sure that he could be with me and only me at that time, then he had to let me go because I wasn't going to come second or stand for other women being in the picture. He claimed that he didn't want to be with other women, but he couldn't gurantee to be with me forever. I told him that I understood that, and no one can promise forever. So, I ended the relationship or what I thought was a relationship once again.
As usual, he came running back. We were back together again, and he seemed to be able to commit to having a monogomous relationship with me, and told me I make him happy and he misses me when I'm not with him. We got back together again. This lasted about 2 months.
In August he took me on a vacation to Florida. We had a great time. It was special to me, and he seemed to be more romantic and "perfect". Although he had never told me he loved me, before returning to our home state at a hotel one night while he thought I was asleep, he told me, "I do love you, and I mean it. But I can't promise I will be with you forever." I don't know why he said this to me in my sleep. When we returned home (to our seperate homes)he called me and talked to me and before we hung up, he said "Love ya". I said, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you." Then he just said that he was only saying goodnight. It confused me, because 2 months prior to this I had told him I loved him, but he never said anything in return.
The next evening I went over to his house, and I found out that he had been chatting/emailing females on a singles dating site. When i questioned it, he tried to say it was old. Then he told me another story...said he was trying to find pornography and had to subscribe to these sites to see it. Then another lie, he said, "Well, you kept breaking up with me, so what was I suppose to do?" I had to refresh his memory that we were no longer broken-up, we had repaired the past, so there was no reason to look for other women. I couldn't let myself continue to go through this, especially with all the evidence in my face of him seeking someone else. It ended once again.
Of course he came crawling back....this lasted about 4 days. On the 4th day, something told me to look at his phone. When I did, I found a text message where he was making plans to meet and hangout with his ex-girlfriend. That was the icing on the cake! I was so hurt. And I left.
What makes things extremely hard for me, is that we are both in the same nursing classes, and this will be this way until January of 2009. There's no escaping him. I try to ignore him at school, but it doesn't work. He studies in the same study group I'm in, so I see him there too. Sometimes my car isn't working up-to-par, and I have to ask for a ride to school.
He still tries to spend time with me on a "friendship" level, and of course at times I am weak enough to fall for it. But, when we are together, I realize all the reasons that I shouldn't be there. Then whenever his phone rings or he gets a text message, I always think its another woman, and even though we aren't together, it's in my face, and it hurts. I don't know what to do anymore, but I do know that Ex's are Ex's for a reason. Learn your lesson and move on. Trying to maintain a friendship with them only prolongs your hurt, because whenever you talk to them or see them, outside of seeing the love you have for them, you also relive all the hurt and agony they put you through.
