I was feeling smothered by my boyfriend and had tried to talk to him on numerous occasions but nothing changed. I broke up with him feeling as though that was the only way I could get some space and he was absolutely heartbroken. After 2 weeks I had decided that I definitely wanted to sort things out with him but he has now said he doesn't know if us being together is the right thing anymore. It is now a week later and he has met a girl who he told me he thinks 'he could like her in that way but he isn't looking for a relationship, and that he isn't saying that to hurt me he is just being honest'. Nothing has happened between them yet but I don't understand how he can even contemplate liking someone else when I am not interested in other guys. Now there is one big problem, we are going on holiday together in a week with his family. They all still want me to go and he said he still really wants me to go too. He said he isn't saying he doesn't want to get back together with me, but that he doesn't know if we would end up breaking up again however far down the line because of the issues we have. That is fair and I understand that he needs time...but why involve another girl? If anything happens with them then that really will be one step too far...Overall we had a brilliant relationship and he was nothing but good to me. I am willing to put in all the effort needed to fix it so I don't understand how he can go from being so heartbroken and feeling like his life is over, to thinking we aren't right together anymore...I DON'T UNDERSTAND!
Just to add, we were together for 2 years!
Also, I am nit the kind of girl that thinks sleeping with my ex will get him back. But I do plan to torture him on holiday. My new underwear that he hasn't seen before will drive him mad...and best of all, I won't even let him near me.
