My Darling Husband and I are high school sweethearts. We were 16/17 almost 18 when we started offically dating. We are now 26/28 and are approaching our 10 year anniversary and have been married for 2 years. We have never broke up and have never considered it. Reading your story brought tears to my eyes because that would rip my heart out if my Darling Husband had ever thought he needed other experiences. But I’m very glad you have found happiness without your ex and y’all were very mature to realize y’all should take a break and live a little. It bothers me a little that your ex told a friend he could see himself marrying you but needs to date around first. If he wants to marry you, he shouldn’t want to be with other women first. But that’s just my opinion and I don’t like to judge others and their relationship preferences because everyone is different. I’m just a one man kind of girl and my husband and I have only ever “been” with one another. I would have been devastated if we had broken up and got back together only to find out he had sleep with other women while we were apart.

FH and I met when when I was 18, he was 19 which we consider to be young! We’ve been dating almost 7 years and have never broken up, although there were those heated arguements in which almost resulted in a breakup!

My husband and I broke up once, about 3 months after we started dating. He was 21 and I was 20. He wasn’t sure he was ready for anything serious and I had just moved an hour away. For a few days after the breakup he would text me all day long and act like we were still together. I finally told him that I wouldn’t be able to get over him if we kept talking like nothing had happened. After a few more days of not talking, I asked him when he was going to come get his hoodie that I had. He straight told me that he had made a huge mistake, was miserable without me, and had every intention of teling me to keep his hoodie when he came because he needed me. 

We’ve now been together over 4 years and married for just over 9 months. If it’s meant to be, it truly will work out! If not, God has bigger and better plans for you!

stuckandconfused:  He’s saying that to keep you on the backburner. He doesn’t want to be with you, but he also doesn’t want to cut you out of his life just yet. Of course you are sad, he was your first big love! Believe me, you’ll get over it and look back one day and you’ll be glad that you let him go. Stop contacting him for a while until you are over him. Then maybe you can be friends in a few years from now. Now you just need to let him go. When my first love and I broke up after 3 years together, I felt like I lost the love of my life. Now, 6 years later, I know that he just never was the one.

My Fiance and I broke up after one year of dating for about 2 weeks because I was in NC at the time, he was in Canada, and we had no idea how I was going to move there permanently or how he was going to move here. So I ended it. I almost ended up getting back with an ex, but decided I couldn’t do it. My Fiance was the type of man I saw myself with long term, even if the idea of marriage scared the heck out of me still at that time, so we got back together and I ended up moving to Canada a month later on a work visa.

stuckandconfused:  Cut his sorry ass loose! My ex was like this, even broke up with me over a freaking text message to be with some other girl after he told me he wanted to be in an open relationship that I agreed to and actually kind of liked at the time to his horror and amazement. Anyway, he led me on for almost a year until I met my now Fiance. Then when he found out I was definitely moving on, he suddenly wanted to make things work, but I had had enough by that point and decided he wasn’t worth my time. Sounds to me like your ex isn’t worth your time either.

stuckandconfused:  aw I’m so sorry you’re feeling sad. I know how much it sucks and how much it hurts. He’s being very unfair to you. He either needs to cut his ties completely or come back to you. He’s exclusively seeing someone else and still keeping open communication with you. That’s not fair to you or this other girl. If I were the other girl and found out he was still keeping the door open for his ex, I’d be outta there so fast. Everything happens for a reason, I promise you. Just keep doing you and be happy. You’re a strong amazing girl and you deserve to be happy.

Def think it’s normal and I would def rather hate him than still pine for his love and affection. It’ll make moving on so much easier. Good for you!
