they broke up shortly after, and over the next years we kept in touch every now and then. i was in a relationship for 4 years, and don’t know much about him as we did not meet that much. he would still write from time to time and tell me he misses me and regrets what happened. i laughed it off always, i wasn't interested in that anymore.
we started hanging out over the past year. he had a girlfriend but kept telling me he can't forget about me and everytime he sees me in person he keeps thinking about me all the time. i didn't say anything to that. then they broke up again.
i went through some rough times recently and he was there always. he helped me out a lot. my cousin is annoyed that every time they are out he only talks about me and asks about me. when i join them he will touch me nonstop, tease me and compliment me. He will say something like I just don’t get why I still can’t get you out of my head after 10 years.
