He had a girlfriend & I had a boyfriend. So never gave it any thought. Then I split up with my boyfriend but still didn't give it any thought.
Over a few weeks it became apparent that we had strong feelings for each other. On a night out we got together. We didn't have sex. He was still with his girlfriend. We saw each other again & it was obvious the feelings ran deeper than being purely sexual. A week later he tells me he's left her because he wants me. We had a perfect (if short) time together then I went away 1 weekend & he told me he wanted to go back to his ex. I was devastated. But let him go. A few days later when I returned to work he told he'd made a mistake. We tried again. Then he told me he wanted his ex back. Then he came back & told me he loved me & I was everything he wanted. Tried again. After he told his ex he was moving on, she contacts him & says she wants him back. He's left me again. I've let him go back to her. All this has happened in 4 weeks. Him & I share a lot of common interests & we honestly have an amazing connection. His ex & him... well apparently she doesn't like to do anything he does. I don't know about their relationship or anything else. Just that he's not over her & says he needs time and he's confused. I think he knows what he wants tbh. I now know he's a liar, & a cheat obviously. I know I shouldn't have got with him that 1st night. Sadly I have never seen a future with anyone before & I really do see a future between us. Which would work if he was obviously over his ex. Other than letting him get on with it, is there anything I can do about this? I still work with him which is both an advantage & a massive disadvantage. I know I should bin him off. I've read back what I've written and it's slapping me in the face with the answer, but I'm not ready to stop fighting for what I believe in yet.

Both of you have a unhealthy relationship, which I find scary.
if you're willing to cheat on your boyfriend, and he's willing to cheat on his girlfriend, what makes you think stealing him will create the relationship you want?
In this alone, I'd leave the relationship, because down the road, what makes you think he won't cheat on you?
Food for thought.

just let him go, you should never let him treat you as an option but as his priority. if he's not over with his ex yet then you can't do anything about it, you cannot force him to choose you, both of you will just end up hurting eventually.
