I’m in a relationship with a guy who I love very much. I’ve known him for a while and we started to see each other early this year. My problem is, I still want to talk to my ex, who was my first everything. Yes, we had our problems, but I loved him very much and I hate that I can’t speak to him. I don’t want him back, I just want to be able to talk to him and have catch-ups. I miss him so much, even though I’m happy in my current relationship and he’s happy in his.
He contacted me last month, just to say hi and catch up. After that I blocked him because I knew if I didn’t tell my boyfriend we’d communicated, he’d kick off. The other night I unblocked his number, but I’m worried about contacting him because he will tell his boyfriend who will probably tell mine. This will cause loads of drama.
I’m finding it hard and confusing because my ex means so much to me. Is it possible for ex-partners to become friends and only friends?
I just want to be in his life and for him to be in mine, that’s all. What should I do?
