Most Helpful Girl
Maybe he wasn't convinced you liked him? If you communicated regularly, I'm not sure why he wouldn't tell you. This guy could be shy. Getting back with an ex is safe. Rather then see if you liked him--he already knew his ex had feelings, so he picked her over you. Remember, your EX is the devil you know. It's much easier to get back with someone who you once loved and accept--as fd up their past is or how bad their habits may be. A new love is a new conquest and one must be brave and be OK with possible rejection. One must learn about a new past, new habits and experiences. Plus, if he has trust issues--she may be his safe haven. You on the other hand--deserve a brave soul.
