    Ex Girlfriend want to be friends
    ice1639 posted:
    Ex Girlfriend of 8 years broke up 4 months ago. I'm still in love with her. Since then we spent ever week together. Two months ago a guy she had a crush on showed interest in her. Now that there are a couple she wants to be my best friend. She knows how I feel. I told her I can not see her anymore cause she has a boyfriend now. She got upset with me. We also have a dog together that we exchange every week. Does she still love me or not? Should I wait around or move on? Also we had sex two weeks before they became exclusive.

    Wow, you were together for 8yrs., and you never asked her to marry you? My first thought was that she doesn't want to wait around for you to grow up? Eight years?

    So she knows how you feel? So what? Is that supposed to make her come crawling back to you? Sorry dude, but if you ask me, I think you blew it, here?

    So you had sex two weeks befor she hooked up with this old flame, so? Maybe she was just horny, and needed some relief? Having sex with you means nothing.

    Does she still love you? Maybe, but she is with another man, now. And should you wait around, dude, you already waited too long! Move on, find another woman that will wait for eight years.

    Good luck with that!!!


    P.S. If it sounds like i'm coming on too strong, well, its because I am completely flaberghasted that you could think a woman wants to wait forever to be asked to wed!!!
