Confusedjj Posted April 9, 2017 Share Posted April 9, 2017 My ex and I broke up last Thursday. He said he wanted 7 days of space and I respected that. He felt as if it was right to break up because he wanted to see what was out there for him in terms of his future. He said he couldn't see my in his future, couldn't see us married and having kids (we are 22 and 21) which is a thought that has never crossed my mind. 2 days after the break up he approached me and told me that after seeing me out with our group of friends he just wanted me back in his life. He asked to see me the following day and we hung out and it accidentally turned into sleeping together. We saw each other everyday since then including last night at a birthday party we had. Throughout the week, it changed from purely just sex to being back to dating. We were going to class and work together, we were hanging out together a lot and he started to tell me he missed me and that he loved me. He gets very emotional about us and I can see that but he also has the ability to shut off and not be affectionate. Last night we were incredibly drunk and I went back to his to talk. It was very emotional and he said that he did love me, more than anything. He said he wanted to get back with me but it's not what he truly wants. He says he wants to be single but also wants to remain friends due to being in the same friendship circle. We still message a lot but he sounds adamant on not getting back with me. He hasn't just told me once, he's told me many time and he said that he knows I want to be back with him. He truly wants that too but it's not right for him at the moment. He doesn't want anything long term. I'm not quite sure what to do, we want to remain best friends but I just want him as my boyfriend. Any advice? I know I have hope and he will always be in my life.
