The thing about choosing romantic partners, Caitlin, is that no one can really tell us who. We must decide that for ourselves, based on several factors. The main one is a real connection communication-wise. And that’s where I think your decision of who will be an easy one for you.

Your ex doesn’t “ever text or hang out”. That shows an almost complete lack of communication, right? The other guy, however, does text you and he hangs out with you. So, doesn’t he sound like the one? Again, though, I can’t tell you as a certainty. Plus, there are other things to consider, such as the way he treats you when he’s with you — showing respect and consideration. Is he a nice guy?

One more thing: An ex is an ex for a reason. In your case, your ex loved someone else so he left you. To my way of thinking, that shows a lack of respect for you and it shows that he didn’t consider your relationship with him to be special. You say you had a great relationship, but it was only for a month and then there’s the part where he left you.

Caitlin, I hope I’ve given you a few things to think about as you make your decision. I wish you luck in taking all things into consideration and be sure you think of your best interest in all of this. Take good care of yourself.

Best Regards,

  1. Your ex is messing with your emotions. He doesn’t really want to be responsible, but he is playing with you. He is testing to see how far he can go with you and your emotions. True love isn’t just about emotions, it is about commitment, communication, responsibility and compassion for each other.

    You and your ex only dated for a month, then he left you for someone else because he told you he loved her. Why would he date you for a month and then leave because he loved someone else? Did he love that other woman while he was dating you? You don’t need a guy in your life that can’t be honest with you. And then, can’t be there for you. You had a good time for a month but time to move on. . .
