I keep thinking what if he finds someone new? How long have you and your boyfriend been together? After a few months of dating, we called it off. I have had acquaintances break up and I still remained friendly with both of them. I never wanted anyone else and only pictured myself with him.
Early April 2017 comes along and I get a text from him again that he would like to apologize and see me at the college I was going to. I actually became closer with one because I was more free to attend more of the invitations she extended.

Let the pieces fall where they may without trying to control everything. Knowing full well that I hate it when he flirts with her and every other girl he meets. We are all in control of ourselves, and no one else. When we decided to end our relationship, we kept living together for additional two years.
I also lived at an intentional community so my peer group may be a little skewed. My ex asks to take me out to celebrate my graduation. I trust my friends, so a bad boyfriend won't make the cut, but an honest one usually will. I had to distance myself from these people which sucks for me. My friend keeps trying to get me to talk to him, but the problem is, she flirts back with him. Oh my god thank you for writing this. I am pretty good friends with my ex husband, but I know that I could not ever live with him again.

Their hookup is just a bump in the road for me. Together, we were able to reverse it, but it was an uphill battle from the get-go. Later July, August, September 2017 we continue to fix our relationship and take it slow.
