Dear Dr. Love,
My boyfriend of 2 and a half years broke up with me last week. The thing is, he told me he loves me yet he is also in love with another girl. Is it possible to be in love with two people at the same time?
I am deeply hurt because I love him too much. Two weeks ago, everything
was smooth and just like what we were when we were starting out so you
can imagine how devastated I am. I asked him why is he telling me this
and what does he want by doing so.
He told me he wanted space, to think
things out. He wants to make sure that it is I that he is really in
love with before he comes back to me (if he does come back ) and I'm
scared that he won't. He has kept me hanging over like this although he
said not to give hope on that yet he follows that sentence with words
that tell me that he still has love for me.
He told me he won't replace
me with any other woman. How could this be when he has already broken
up with me? I have asked him back several times, told him that if
marriages with affairs could still make it through, we can do this. but
he won't. he told me he needed the space. But I kept thinking what
I'm left hanging and i don't know whether to hope or to let
go anymore. My friends tell me to let go. I know I should and it's
killing me. I don't know how to let go and don't know if I should when
he makes me feel there's still hope. How can I walk away want to walk
away but can't?
