By distracting yourself by whatever means necessarily in order for forget about him and that includes hanging out with your friends more often, going to the gym and meeting new people, and trying new/old activities that you enjoy. In time you'll learn to forget about him and by distracting yourself, it'll get much easier0

Just because two people Break up doesn't mean they can't and don't Make up and that it's Good-bye, my love forever. And with an "EX" who still Marks an X in his own softie spot, there comes a time when down the line, He then Says... He still Misses me and that he wanted to be together still.
It's quite obvious with the writing on the wall and all here, dear, that he wants his cake and Eat it... Two. He still feels comfy and cozy with you, still is Missing the Kissing, the '2 1/2 years' of History you both shared but doesn't want to be Committed at this time anyways.
This is all new to him, he is like this bad boy in a candy store who is now looking and lurking and has found a new sweet treat. He is putting you on his pay no mind list because he doesn't want to have to answer to you or have you tell Him... He has been naughty.
He is leaving you in his back pocket in case she doesn't pan out, this cookie. And I do not doubt that when he needs some lovin' care, he will Dare... To come back with his terrible tail between his legs.
Focus on you and try to begin your own beguine of moving on. He is this fickle pickle who doesn't want to be tied down and although it seems he is in a 'So quick to be in a relationship,' one never knows what is going on with 'What relationship' behind closed doors.
No, I would not call any relationship 'Just gone to waste' but an experience that you had the honor of being in because you found out you could Love.
Good luck. xx0
