My ex-boyfriend won't be just friends with me because I
broke up with him. He keeps telling me that he breaks up with every other girl
he dates because he doesn’t love them as much as he loves me. I told him that I
broke up with him because he was flirting and hugging other girls in front of
me, but he keeps begging for another chance. I would rather just be friends,
but do you think I’m doing the right thing?
It’s nice when you can remain friends with an ex, but it’s
certainly not a given. Your old flame has a right to draw a line, and if you
refuse to be his GF again, he can most definitely withhold his friendship.
Those are the breaks, babe, and while they can stink, there’s not a whole lot
you can do aside from giving him some space.
On to your question: Did you do the right thing… I wish I
could give you an absolute “Yes!” or “No!” but the only person who can
definitively say whether you made the correct choice is Y-O-U. If his flirting
with other girls made you uncomfortable and insecure in your relationship, then
perhaps breaking it off was the best choice, especially if your broached the
issue and he wouldn’t alter his ways.
Still having doubts? Take a walk down memory lane before you
do anything rash, like agreeing to date your dude again. Think about why it was that you broke
up. Was it for a reason that seems silly now? Or was it just not meant to be?
Think long and hard, sweetie, and good luck!
