Help!

Hi, I'll try and keep this very short.

I dated my boyfriend for 2 years- it was very on and off. I was 20 when I met him and he was 28. He broke up with me last year february- then in april he moved in with his ex. I loved this guy, i mean there was nothing i wouldn't have done for him. So he's the only guy i've ever been with.
last night, after 1 and a half years he texts me saying 'i know this out of the blue but i wanted to see how you are and say hello.' he continued to say ' to be honest i will understand if you don't reply or tell me to ef myself as i have been a major douche bag to you. you were good to me and i'll never forget that'.
that's all he's said. i was ruined when he left me- i had to work so hard to get back up. i loved him more than my own life. now he texts me this!

please help me! what does it mean? what does he want from me? yes i still love him and would be with him tomorrow (as long as his gf is out of the picture). i'd appreciate your comments.

Re: Help!

so you don't think he wants to be back with me?

should i not reply at all?? even something like 'too late for a guilty conscience now'?....when he text me i was in tears all night- didn't know what it meant. whethere it was him wanting me back or him feeling guilty of how he treated me.

Re: Help!

I agree, I wouldn't reply, either. What's the point? You said the relationship was on/off the whole time, what would be different this time? You said you did everything for hi and he repayed you be leaving and shacking up with his ex. He sounds like a total jerk.

At best, the most you could possibly get from him at this point is possibly getting your hopes up again only to have him get bored and leave again. Do you really want to go through all that pain and anguish all over again? I'm tellin you it's not worth it to even try opening that door again. You will absolutely 100% get hurt by him again if you do. Don't do it!

Re: Help!

if he wants you back, he will make it known to you......
he's tossing out a line to see if you bite......
he's sticking his foot in the door to see if he has a chance.....
probably whatever he had going on fizzled out and now he's backpeddling.....

Re: Help!

what if he thinks i don't want him anymore and he then stops trying altogether. i mean i love this guy despite what he's put me through (and i can tell you he's dragged me through hell!)?? but i still pray that we can have another go at being with each other- i'm older than i was and wiser now. maybe it'll work this time??? i don't know. im stil trying to figure out why he text me last night.

i wasn't planning on texting him until end of july anyway as i have exams coming up and i'm scared i'll end up opening a can of worms and don't want to deal with it before exams.
or do you think i shouldn't text him back altogether??

i appreciate your comments ladies. i really do- i'm extremely grateful.

Re: Help!

Re: Help!

i don't want to do that. if i did that he'll think i've forgiven him and that we can be friends. but that's not true! ive told him i don't want his friendship! it's all or nothing!!
i want him to hurt just like i did. but as you said he's probably feeling guilty and wants me to sort of tell him that ive forgiven him. he doesn't want to be back with me! i'm just a silly hopefull idiot!

thank you for your replies. x

Re: Help!

I think whats happened here is , he dumped you, moved on with his ex, now hes single, and he is texting to you to see if you are still there for him. If you get back with him , he could dump you again , go and have his fun and then he can come back , i bet thats how he see's it. Yeah i think he wants you back because hes alone and got no one.

I know you love him, but do you really deep down want him back if he asked you? I bet if you texted him back, his next text would be ''ive missed you can i come see you and catch up''.....then he would work at trying to worm his way back into your life.

Re: Help!

well i don't know if he's single you see as on his msn page he has his name 4 his gfs name. so i'm presuming he's still with her.
that's why i'm so confused.

the thing is if he was single i don't think i would miss a beat being with him again- i know it's silly but i want to know inside me that i tried again and it didn't work. i know it's probably not going to work and he'll probably end up marrying his gf but there's a tiny little hope which refuses to die.

Re: Help!

Well, do whatever you want, but I am convinced that if you got back with him, things would get bad again and you'll be right back where you started, being hurt and upset and sad. Personally, I think you're wasting your time with this guy. You said yourself the relationship didn't work countless number of times. You already broke up and got back together repeatedly and it never lasted, so I'm telling you it's going to be the exact same nonsense all over again. And then not only will you end up alone again but you will also feel totally stupid for trying again because you already know there is no way this would ever last.

I don't understand why so many women keep wasting their time with losers from their past when there are so many other guys out there who are ten times better than their ex's ever could be. It's very disheartening to keep seeing this happen over and over again!

Its clear that you want him , and i think you will end up texting back to see why he is texting you , suppose thats the only way of finding out but its a bad call but its totally upto you. I just hope you are careful and strong. Just remember ex's are ex's for a reason , that means it doesnt work with them and highly unlikely it will ever work.

Re: Help!

WoW - you sound just like me with my ex! sweetheart, don't let this text our of knowhere fool you, he obviously doesn't love you and you can't go back to him! I know how much it hurts and how much you want to believe this is some kind of sign he wants you, but he's just messing with your mind! stay away from him and don't reply, be strong! You've made it this far don't take a step back!

see how this one text, this one question has got you? it's making you crazy! a guy that has you acting that way is no bueno! pretend he never sent you anything, go about your business as usual, I did the same thing with my ex because I wanted so BAD to believe that we could work it out, but we couldn't! he never wanted to be with me but he always said "I can't let you go" and there I was again, all messed up, it's a terrible situation! save yourself the heartache!!
