my ex...

My ex-boyfriend and I are still very good friends for the sake of our son. I still love him so much but he says he can't see spending the rest of his life with me. I'm totally heartbroken but am glad to still have the friendship as he is my best-friend. I would be lost without being able to call him and tell him my bad/good news. Should I express my feelings for him again (haven't talked about it since we broke up in June) or should I just be grateful for the friendship and keep my mouth shut?

  • I would tell him how you feel that you still love him and you still wanna be with him im pretty sure he'll understand how you feel . was that the only reason why yall broke up was cus he couldnt see himself spending the rest of his life with you ? but i think you should also be grateful that you still have him in your life .

  • I'd probably say something. See if you can go out alone, maybe a dinner or something - don't ask for anything romantic or anything, don't want to scare him off. Just go do something casual and friendly, then bring it up. Tell him how you feel. If things don't work out in the end and you guys just remain friends you won't have that question in the back of your head of "what if......". If he still feels the same way then I'd say move on...I know easier said then done.
    Good Luck!

  • I would say keep ur mouth shut but he needs to know....I was in that same position with my child's father and we are so close now since we both express ourselves. He is my best friend and we still love each other very much but we know that we cant be together.

  • yeah i would talk to him & see what he says but dont rush into it if you get the same responce i would move on & find someone else when the time is right but good luck mama i hope it all works out for you & your child

  • Keep your mouth shut. You can only make things uncomfortable between you and he won't be available to you. Anyway, this friend thing will change soon enough when he gets himself another piece.
