My ex-boyfriend and I were together for almost 14 months. Less than a week ago he told me that he wanted to basically test other girls out to see if I was the right girl for him or not. He had told me that he would never break up with me and everything, and then he did. The day after, he started talking to one of my friends and asked her out on a date. At first, she said yes, but then, she said no, because she didn't want to hurt our friendship. My ex said he would go back out with me after a girl or two and all he wanted to do was have a little fun with some other girls. I don't know if I should wait around for him, or not? Then, last night, (he and I work at the same place) we were riding to work together and had fun at work, and then we made out (I'm not the type of person to kiss when not going out, but he was my first kiss, and I wanted to kiss him so bad and I'm happy I did) afterwards. He told me he loved me, but that he just needed to do this. I really believe he loves me, but he's going off to college 3 hours away in 3 months and I'm only a sophomore. I want to get back together with him, but I don't know what to do in the meantime. Do I date? Do I wait around for him? Any advice, please?
Glad you asked - and my advice is - the boy is a player - let him go - you will be better off! Good luck!
