I broke up with my girlfriend a little over a year ago. It was a pretty ugly breakup, but somehow we've always remained friends. Even though we didn't speak very much, we still saw each other on occasions and even "backtracked" a few times. Well, I met someone new during one of our long periods of not speaking and I kind of started a relationship with her. However, about a month ago, my ex and I have been getting really close and I'm pretty sure she is under the assumption that we're back on. She even tells me she "loves" me, and I tell her the same. I'm still in love with my ex and I really care about my girlfriend. I don't know what to do. My heart tells me to give my relationship another chance but I don't want to lose what I have now. I'm guessing I can't keep them both. Please help.
Believe it or not, this is not a strange case. Especially when the form of communication has been kept open between the 2 partners. You clearly have deep feelings for each other. This is where communication is key. When it comes to love, always told to listen to your heart first and mind second. Your mind changes, but your heart never really does. If you truly believe that your heart is leading you back to your ex girlfriend and it will work this time around, then give that a try. The tricky part is letting your current down easily. The sooner the better. If you prolong things, it will be bad for everybody.
