I couldn't agree more with LMH. I remember your accounts of your ex, and to be totally honest, you owe him nothing. If you feel like having fun with his friend, go for it! You are young and won't be able to indulge such tempting influences forever
. Also, anything that will distance you from your ex is a positive influence from what I've heard. Just protect yourself physically and emotionally no matter what happens...and have a wonderful holiday! You deserve a great vacation after all you've been through, sweetie! And I am sure that whether or not this new guy can make you happy, before long you will find someone who completely overshadows your ex and all his flaws in your mind. Good luck!
