i still love my ex after a year. Alex, Today is October 1, it would have been our four years. It is only now that I realize my mistake in ending things. So why would he still stay in contact with you? The reason is simple; the majority of guys who say they remain in contact with their ex-girlfriends is so that they can have the possibility of hooking up with you again in the. I miss her so much and she truly is the love of my life and I can never get her back. Whether are you two broke up six months ago or five years ago, you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself for still having feelings for your ex. So over 8 years, you are effectively re-writing the memory over and over. After 5months I started dating this new guy who loves me so much and his really nice to me and already introduced me to his family which my ex never did. Right and learned a lot from my mistakes. The first week after the break up we would still talk occasionally and we met up one time.
