I'm Involved and My Ex Just Said "I Love You"
So tonight my emotions are all jumbled up. I'm with an amazing man - we've only been dating for a little over a month, but I feel like I'm falling in love with him. He's everything I want - he's even relocating cities to be with me.
Last year about this time, I dated a guy for a few months. We never got incredibly serious, but there was always that "something" about him that drew me to him like crazy. I never could understand it. We ended up not speaking for almost a year, and reconnected in June of this year. He had a lot of things going on, and we dated for a little while until he disappeared again. Today I ran into him. We sat and talked for a while, and he told me that he ran away because of his feelings, and that he was in love with me. Before we stopped seeing each other for the second time, I felt very strongly about him, even though he told me he didnt believe he could fall in love again, that he was "broken".
My emotions are all over the place. It just seems so fickle that he says he loves me now that I'm falling for another man, while he couldnt have said it when he had the chance months ago. I still have feelings for him, but I didnt act on them... I told him about my boyfriend and told him we needed to be friendly, flat out, but it doesn't stop me from feeling guilty about the emotions he stirred up when we saw each other.
Am I wrong to be feeling this way? I wanted to kiss him very badly, and I don't understand what it all means. I care about my boyfriend very much and would never lie to him or do anything to hurt him. Is it wrong, and what should I do?
