12tomorrow Posted April 6, 2017 Share Posted April 6, 2017 Me and my boyfriend of 2 years broke up a couple of months ago. When we broke up he told me he didn't love me anymore and that really really hurt me because I thought we would be together long term. The last few months of our relationship were toxic as my mental health wasn't very good and it caused us to argue a lot and me to be jealous and moody so it's understandable that he would feel like he doesn't love me anymore. Also he lied to me quite a bit during the relationship (he didn't cheat) and he feels so guilty for that. Since then, I've focused a lot on making myself a happier and healthier person, me and him now have a complicated relationship. We've been sleeping together and it's been discussed that it doesn't mean anything more, however without going into details it feels loving sometimes. And we're very close friends and we text each other every night. It's basically a relationship without the romance. He clearly is attracted to me and we have a closer connection to each other than we do to anyone else, so what's missing? I know he's reluctant to get back into a relationship but how do I show him that us being together again wouldn't be how it was before? I feel like he might have feelings for me because he compliments me in ways that aren't just physical (calling me beautiful and cute and saying how intelligent and kind I am) and he gets quite protective and a little jealous sometimes. And sometimes the way he looks at me and talks about me makes me certain that he still loves me. And other times I feel totally friendzoned by him. So what exactly do I do? I want a relationship with him again but I don't know how to make him not wary of trying again. He feels so guilty for how much he's hurt me and I think that might put him off being with me again because he doesn't want to do it again. Sorry for the novel but I really do need advice. Thank you!
