OK, so here's the situation. My first boyfriend I met in middle school. We dated for a few months then broke up because of circumstances. I changed schools and we kept in touch a little, like 1or two emails every year to two years to catch up. (so total like 3-5 emails in 5 years) We recently reconnected 5 years later and he spent two months convincing me to date him, and we did for a few months, until my family forced a breakup. Now we're just friends again. But I still feel like there is something between us, like something that could work later. I know we can't be together right now because of our situations. But I still feel like we could have a future. But I feel kind of crazy for thinking that. I want to stop but I don't know how. I never forgot him in the 5 years we barely talked. I don't know what's going on... Am I being unreasonable?
Also----- They made us break up because of religious and family differences. I think it may be different in the future because those differences don't matter to me and him. The only reason it does right now is because I'm living at home while going to school. Once I move out it will be different.
And I have dated other guys, and I'm open to dating other guys now. In fact I'm considering another guy's offer at the moment. But I just keep coming back to him no matter what. He is the person I compare everyone else to, and we just seem to balance each other out and challenge each other. He makes me feel amazing and want to be the best person I can be.

Sounds like you got some pretty intense chemistry going on with him. If he feels the same way, which he quite possibly may, then no you're not really "crazy" for thinking about him a lot. Even if he didn't feel the same way, it's still understandable to feel this way. Why don't you communicate some of your feelings to him? Not all of them necessarily, you don't have to wear your heart on your sleeve, but you can let him know some of how you feel and see how he reacts to it.0
