To make a long story short, I was seeing this guy for a couple of months and we were being both physically and emotionally intimate. He recently decided to try to work things out with his ex, which he claims was completely unplanned. Anyway, what I don't understand is how he can go from being with me to being with her so quickly. The thought of the two of them together makes me ill, history or not. I also find it interesting that she's so forgiving of the fact that he was with me. Also, he wants to keep in touch because he feels as though we have a lot in common. Whatever that means. Help please! I don't understand men.

Seems to me he was never really over her, else he wouldn't have been so easy to go back to her and continue on with a physical/emotional relationship. And the same for her, that she has forgiven him. Whatever they had, wasn't really ready to be over.
Him wanting to keep in touch with you sort of has me thinking that he does like you quite a bit, but wants to keep you around in case things don't work out with her again. By giving you just enough to keep you pining for him, he can be sure you'll wait for him to make up his mind.
Its up to you if you want to be on standby or not...personally, Id move on. I want a man who is devoted to me physically and emotionally.2
