I know of all things I could be doing to an ex who I still dearly love , is lying. We broke up because I really do have other things to prioritise and I really am not in the phase where I could be committed to a relationship and its totally unfair for her and myself because she needs my attention but other things are calling for my attention as well. I have a family to support and its hard enough for me and having a relationship is just not helping but to make things clear , I really did love my ex and I may or may not still have feelings for her. She texted me 3 months after the break up asking if I still had feelings for her because unfortunately we still had some physical things going on for a little while after the break up and I understand where she's coming from. I told her i dont love her or anyone anymore. I made sure it sounded harsh. i didn't want her to hurt from waiting for me to be giving her what she deserves , i just dont have the time for a relationship. I told her that so she could move on in peace , she deserves better and although it hurt my guts having to tell her a false statement , i really want her to be happy. I know ill feel sad when the time comes that she actually finds the guy of her dreams but seeing and knowing that she's hurting because of me breaks my heart. I hope our paths will cross again in the future and maybe when im finally ready for a relationship , i hope our paths meet and we could be together again forever. So is it wrong of me to be lying to her or is that what exs should do?
