My ex and i split after only 6 month and i think he could be the love of my life. He went through some really hard things during our relationship, such as loosing a job, two injuries, problems with the mother of his kids and jail. He was drinking and doing drugs while we where together. Once he got clean and sober things started to fall apart. He dumped me because i caused him too much stress or i influenced him to be complacent during his recovery. He told me almost 3 weeks ago the day after he dumped me he loved me and doesn't want to loose me forever that he just needs space. we still talked everyday for the next week just short like check in texts and up until last week he called me babe occasionally. now he only calls when he needs something or to pay back the money he owes me. I am getting tired of trying. I even confessed that i am still in love with him and miss him and got no reply back for days. he says he is busy with work and recovery. I saw him today and it was actually a nice visit and i got like a half hug. Should i continue to hang in there and try or is he just keeping me around until something else comes along?
