I dated my ex for 5 months. During the last few weeks he was talking to an ex of his and broke up with me for her. Two months later he contacted me again trying to get me back. He said he wanted to make up for being an a**hole, couldn't get me off his mind, and missed what he had. I even told him "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" and his response was he wasn't trying to fool anyone. So eventually we got back together. We then dated for a year and a half. Once again, during the last few weeks of our relationship, he was talking to another ex and broke up with me for her.
A little history on this ex girlfriend... my ex and her dated on and off for 5 years. She was actually married at the time and had a kid, but her husband was in the service. After five years, he finally offered her and the kid to move in. She abruptly left him and moved out of state to live on base with her husband. A year ago she moved back, divorced and now with two kids, and contacted him again.
Is this just unfinished business? Was he just keeping me around until he found someone else? He states he's not trying to date her, but I feel like that's a load of bull.
He kept saying how sorry he was to do this to me again, and that I could call him anytime. He's also responding to my texts. He even initiated the texts one night asking how my vacation was going. I don't understand. The first time we broke up he wanted nothing to do with me. Is he just trying to make himself feel better about not hurting me? Is he trying to keep me around? Does he really just want to be friends?
In a stupid way I keep blaming myself because I feel like if he was happy with me, then he wouldn't have responded to her contact :(

move on. this guy clearly has committment issues. It doesn't really say much about you since he clearly has repeated this behavior with other women. So just move forward. Put some distance between you and him because it sounds like you are just going to repeatedly be disappointed by him and left with more questions than answers0
