why is my ex telling me he still wants me if he's seeing someone new?
My ex and I have a long history. He's been in love with me for eight years and unfortuntely we were just never able to be together due to personal reasons. Fast forward a few years and we start talking again and that's when he revealed how he's felt for so many years. from the beginning it was really intense on his part, i've loved you for so long, you're the one i want to be with, marry and have a life with.. things were going perfect aside from the fact that we live in different states and LDR was kind of a bummer :( One night were were talking about what to do when he comes to town in a few days to ..next thing I know we're breaking up. He said he felt like he was holding me back from living my life since he's always gone all the time. He doesn't deserve someone like me and I can do better..
We ended on good terms, we love each other but can't be together until he figures stuff out. We're still really good friends and have kept in touch over the summer. He told me that he still loves me very very much and we've been trying to figure out a way to see each other again. Last week he told me how much he missed me and that he does still want me, but his life is messed up right now. I told him how much I missed him and that maybe in the long run it would be better if we didn't see each other then. Which is worse: not seeing the person you want to be with or hanging out then leave wanting things you can't have even more.. He told me, "i want to see you.. I need to see you" So I was super happy that things were going well and maybe it was a step in the direction of getting back together.
Well not even two weeks after our really good conversation I find out that he just recently started dating a new girl.
I'm sooo confused, why would he tell me he misses me, wants me, needs to see me if he's seeing someone else?
Will guys just give up on the girl they've supposedly loved for forever and just settle for second best?
