me and my ex

Question Posted Sunday May 14 2006, 12:05 am

ok so i broke up w/ my boyfriend of 10 months 3 months ago and i was pretty down about it for a while but im pretty much over it now. we stil talk and were friends but i know hes still inlove w/ me because he tells me all the time. besides that when he likes someone he for some reason always compares me to them like shes almost as pretty as u or as smart things like that. i feel guilty b/c i like hearing those things from him b/c hes the only one who seems to think that. i like that he gives me attention and sometimes i manipulate him so i get attention or try to make him jealous. i know its wrong but i dont know why i do it. could it be because i miss him? i also get kinda jealous when he talks about one of his friends that are girls. please help!

Hi There,

Switch off the mobile, get some videos in, chill.

Like the Atlantic Ocean. Pack your bags and go somewhere exotic, it's harder to be sad in the sunshine.

You can't move on if you still allow hopes that you will get back together and live happily ever after. You will get over it. You will.

Talk to people, it helps get it all out in the open and will help you feel better.

Look after yourself. We're talking super pampering here, eat well, sleep well and begin to feel well, whether you eat your favourite food every night or you let your mates take you to places they'd never usually go just to cheer you up, go do it.

Write down all the ways your boyfriend pissed you off: We guarantee they won't seem quite as perfect as your rose-tinted memory makes them.

Get out there and do something, it may be cliched but changing your image, trying something new or just getting fit can help you focus on something other than your ex and help you to gain confidence and move on.

Then, one day, someone will mention your ex and you will realise you hadn't thought about them in a while. Result.

it's something everyone goes through after break ups. you tend to thrive on compliments, yours just happen to be from your ex.

when you find a new love interest, you'll get over it, don't worry yourself :)

I get the same way.

but it could be because you still have
feelings for him deep inside.

or that he gives you the confidence
you need and you like being the center
of his attention.

it really sounds like you arent over him.. you love getting compliments from him because deep down somewhere in you you know you still like him alot. and you should stop playing games and manipulating him and be true to your heart and see if you truely like him... if you do and u feel you wanna get bac with him tell him how you feel. if you kinda like him but dont wanna get bac with him then you are just having trouble moving on and you should look for someone else.. theres other fish in the sae and if you dont like him tell him you dont have feelings for him so your not leading him on.
