    Dear natalee:

    So you think that he still loves you and that he really doesn’t have a girlfriend, that he made it up so to hurt you. And you are hoping that he will stop hating you and be your boyfriend again, right?

    Dear natalee:

    Then tell him so, tell him that this is what you think he is doing, and ask him if you and him can talk about it all, and maybe you can learn from your shared experience and become better people for it ,using your own words (?)

    Dear natalee:

    I re-read your first post on page 2 of this thread and see if anything new comes to mind. You are 16, dated Jessi Feb-June, 2021. He “was so sweet, kind, talkative, very funny, helpful, amazing, and most of all, a good boyfriend… it was perfect”. But in May 2021, while Jessi was so sweet, etc., and the relationship was perfect, you flirted with an old crush and sent him a partial nude picture. Next, your mother made you tell Jessi, you did, and his response: (1) at first, “he hugged me and was pretty mad”, (2) the next day “he broke up with me”, (3) six days later, “he came back and we got back together… for 3 weeks”, (4) June 25: “he dumped me again. he said he could not live with the fact that I cheated”.

    More about Jessi’s response: “when he left the first time, he was wiping tears from his eyes as he was leaving. he was so hurt, but he loved me so much”.

    You then mentioned a third guy, “this kid in my gym class” who fell in love with you, and you  “flirted a little back” when you were still Jessi’s girlfriend. When you posted your first post here, you were considering pursuing a relationship with the new guy (“Can’t choose between an ex and a new guy”, is the title of this thread).

    On a later post, you added that Jessi “did mention before we broke up, that if we ever did, he would want to be the friends with benefits”.

    I never asked you, natalee, but it may be the time to ask you: how is life at home, what is your relationship with your mother, with your father.. are they married (your mother and father) and how is their relationship?

    You don’t have to answer these questions, of course, but the answers may lead me to better understand what is happening in your mind and heart regarding Jessi, the old crush and the new guy.

    my dad died when i was 6. my mom is taking care of me and my siblings. but it is fine, i am sorry to cause all of this. i sound like i am a player, but i am not, i am just confused. but if i had to choose out of the three, it would be jessi.

    Dear natalee:

    Maybe, just maybe  the reason you flirted with the old crush and got interested in the new guy while still in love with Jessi – is because you badly need attention from guys, because you grew up not getting enough attention at home (your mother  being too busy raising her kids by herself)?

    I am asking (and again, you don’t have to answer) because understanding yourself better will surely put you in a better position to make better choices in life, including in regard to relationships with guys.

    Dear natalee:

    You are welcome. I’d say: give up on the ex and move on. About the new guy: get to know him slowly, before getting too close: ask him questions, answer his questions, talk a lot, don’t jump into an intimae situation too soon.

    Dear natalee:

    For as long as you have this question in mind, do not get involved with the new guy, because if the new guy gets to be your boyfriend and then you leave him to get back with your ex, the new guy will get hurt,  maybe very hurt.

    Before you get into a relationship with any new guy, make sure that you are really over your ex.

    Dear natalee:

    It will help you a great deal to get over your ex if you knew that he is over you. Problem is, he walks by and you imagine that he looks sad and that maybe he wants you back (and maybe he does, I don’t know). Your friends maybe suggest that, and your hopes keep going up. You then have his pictures by your bed (if I remember correctly) and you keep imagining being back with him.. all that makes it impossible to get over him.

    If only you could have a long conversation or two with him, in which you can figure out: does he want you back OR not. If he doesn’t, case closed, right?

    * Your choice in regard to getting back with him should not be a matter of his choice alone, but a matter of your choice as well. It is possible for you to change your mind about him for whatever reason. (Often a girl is in love with a boy and sees him as Mr. Wonderful.. but later, when able to see him better, he doesn’t seem so wonderful anymore)

    * Also, you have a great need for attention from guys, like I suggested earlier and you agreed. This excessive need for attention stands in the way of you making good decisions for yourself in regard to guys.

    Hi @coconut I actually agree with you. What I am about to share is based on personal, similar to her situation. One thing I personally hate in a relationship is ego. I was once with a girl who always talked down on me and no matter what I did for her, the relationship kept getting worse. As a matter of fact, I reached the point where I was like ok, the more I do for her, the more our relationship goes down the spiral hole. So, I think if I was in this post’s author’s shoe, I would (And this is just me) try to give the new person a chance. Study him and see if the relationship would get serious. Because the ex is the person who she knows best. But she doesn’t know much about the new guy. Maybe the relationship gets more serious. So by seeing someone for 4 weeks, we really can’t say if the ex is the way to go or the new guy because let’s be honest, it’s 5 years vs. 4 weeks of dating.

    So, yeah I think if it was me, I would’ve give more time to the new person.
