purple_monster Posted November 28, 2004 Share Posted November 28, 2004 Do I/Should I/How do I tell my ex about a new guy in my life? We broke up a few months ago (after 4+ years including a last year of poorly executed long distance), and I started dating soon after, mostly as a distraction. I ended up meeting someone who i hit it off with really well, even though I dragged my feet as much as possible at the beginning. Ex and I haven't really talked since the breakup. We've communicated a few times for logistical reasons. Since it was long distance, he came out here a month after the breakup so we could get our stuff back and say goodbye in person. At that point, I felt that if certain things changed, I would be willing to try it again. As time passes, however, and I get more distance, I'm realizing that I was making too much of a compromise, and that getting back together is a really bad idea. I haven't shared any of this thought process with him. He might come out here sometime soon for business, and I agreed to meet up with him when he does. Do I owe it to him to tell him that a) I don't think we are ever getting back together and/or b) I am seeing someone new? How did you break the news to an ex? Did you? Is it better to tell them yourself or have them find out from someone else? Do you need to tell them it's really over, if you didn't think it necessarily was when your head wasn't as clear?
