I was with my ex 5 years. We have been talking since we split. He recently told me he me hadn't given up on me yet. That he didn't want to close the door on our relationship yet. I asked him several times if he was talking to someone else that I would understand. He said he wasn't. My good friend informed me yesterday he was seeing the girl that lived above her. When I confronted him he then told me about her and told me to move on. Why did he string me along? Why didn't he just tell me when i asked?
