  • You do so by embracing your new BF with all of you! give it your all and never look back on your cheating ex. Love hurts, but you know he will do it again if you get back with him. You deserve to be happy.

  • You're not really in love with him. It only feels that way because the relationship didn't end on your terms. If you were truely in love with him, you wouldn't have been able to move on.

  • you CHOOSE to stil have feelings for this man. you are not really IN LOVE. more like IN LUST. you can CHOOSE to let this go. move on with your life.

  • block his number from your phone.. have no contact with him whatsoever, and tell your boyfriend that he texted you so there is no dishonesty between you..

  • No, that's not love it's relationship addiction to a toxic person

  • I am in the same boat! But it really isn't love. Everytime I think of him I try to picture the reasons I am NOT with him anymore. It helps but no, it didn't not completely go away and it has been a year and a half. GL

  • It takes time... you need distance from him to really think about whether he is who you want...
