its been just about a year since me and my ex has been apart and every time I go back to her only to have my heart hurt. We "took a break in" in her words cause of reasons that belonged to her and some of them I knew about but others not so much. Anyways I've been moving on and meeting great girls but instead of taking that next step and dating them I hold back and think about my ex. I then go back and talk to her sometimes and flirt and she flirts with me to but then remember that she has a boyfriend and my heart feels like it just dies a little and my breath literally shortens. (this only happens with her) Eventually the pain in my heart stops and my breath comes back and I act as if I don't remember anything. The only person I do talk about how I feel sometimes is my Best friend since 1st grade and she just tells me that sooner or later that she will regret the whole break up and wanna come back or that she will feel sorry for leaving such a great guy. I feel a lil bit better that she tells me that but still I wanna date other girls before trying to get back with my ex but every time I try I end up thinking about her and hurting myself in the end. can anyone hep me out or is there any ideas on what I should do?
