Awww, I am SO happy for you. I remember reading your heartbreaking posts and thinking, what a monster your ex was for putting you through that. Just know that not all guys are like that…you may be feeling suspicious right now that it’s all too good to be true…but good guys do exist!! Take it slow, and he should understand got out of a sticky relationship not that long ago…not much time has passed for you to fully heal yet…so just take it slow and it sounds like you got yourself a good one this time

AussieSummer:  I would respond to the ex and tell him God does not look kindly upon nasty notes. 

As for the new guy, of course you have reservations– your ex smashed your heart into a thousand pieces and then did a little jig on it. It is going to take some time to not feel completely vulnerable. If it feels right to continue dating this new fellow, I would proceed with caution. You don’t need a label before you’re ready for one. I feel like he’s going to have stronger feelings sooner than you will because you remember better than he does what’s at stake if the relationship fails. He on the other hand, hasn’t experienced that in 2 years, so he has less road blocks in the way. This is completely normal. Seems like he’s ok with all of that, too! It’s good you’ve found a patient partner.
