Notyourusual Posted January 22, 2017 Share Posted January 22, 2017 My ex-boyfriend and I broke up about a month ago after dating for two weeks. We fell head over heels for each other, but due to my insecurities and his emotional state we ended up breaking up. He jumped into a relationship with me after being broken up with his long time (2 years) ex for only 2 weeks. (I found this out while we were dating) I know he isnt over her and he admits this as well. He states this as the reason why he can't date right now. Its not that its me, its dating anyone at all. At this time we have agreed to remain friends. We have been hanging out as friends for the past month and although I still have feelings for him I know he is in no place to be in a relationship right now. He is still pretty "broken" as he describes it from his last relationship. I am not waiting around for him to be ready to date me so I have already been seeing other people and he is aware of this. He on the other hand is not dating anyone and says he does not want to date anyone to focus on healing himself. I really care about him and want to see him get better. Prior to breaking up, I asked him to go on a vacation to mexico with me that my company organized for their employees (we are allowed to bring one other person). We have both still agreed to go on the trip together still as just friends. Secretly I am hoping that a change in scenery will help him heal and see whats in front of him. I know that thats being illogical, but i still truly care about him and I know he cares about me. He is just still emotionally unavailable as a result of his last relationship. Is this a bad idea to still go on a trip together? Will it help him heal? Or am I just being irrational and should put myself first? Link to comment
