your ex is an ex for a reason. if he gets you back he will behave for a few months and go back to normal.
i've seen it over and over again.
Ummmm, take the other guy and leave your ex behind you. They always say they will change but never do.
give the new guy a go,
Is this a serious post? You want to get back with a guy who only shows tenderness as a manipulative ploy because it's easier to reel back a former victim than to locate, lure, and train a new one?
Losers are always very adept with excuses. They've had a lot of practice in life. The best thing you can do for him is buy him a Yoda t-shirt with the quote,"Try not. Do or do not, there is no try." The next day break up with his lame ***.
Its always the same, they never know what they really have till its truly gone, forever.
He's a bum. Get your stuff back and give him back his. Block his number and move on.
Well ultimately it is your decision whom you spend life with all I can tell you I would not want to spend it with someone that treated me the way he did treat you in the past....
It'll be okay at first. Then, it will be more of the same.
How long you were with do it yourself human 1.0. That is something to consider. Adjustment time. Do it yourself humans are always sweet and loving from the start. In case you forgot.
Also, will the sex in any way better with do it yourself human or will you feel as socially secure, what family makeup compatibilities, social strata variances, religious beliefs are more or less similar in 1.0 as compared to 1.1.
This might sound facetious but giving an honest appraisal. I'm astutely aware that the younger you are - the more important these things are. After you reach a certain maturation they aren't that important anymore. For now though, they matter profoundly. I don't mean this as an insult, but you still have much growing up left to do under the age of 30.
