In September, my "boyfriend" said, "Let's take a break," and I agreed. So we stopped being in a relationship but continued to date, have sex and talk/text. He said the reason for our break is that I'm still young and he can't be the only one that I have dated. He's my first everything. I need to experience more foods to see what (who) my favorite is.
He doesn't want me to waste my youth on him and regret all the missed opportunities later. He also doesn't want to commit 100 percent only for me to leave him later on and I get where he is coming from, but don't really agree because that isn't me. So I tried it, met a few nice dudes and bunch of creeps and crazies. Not one of those dating experiences worked out.So now I'm still seeing my "ex" normally even after all these months of us being on a break and me dating other guys. It's exactly the same as us being in a relationship, minus the title. We aren't in a relationship but we are more than friends with benefits (what he said). He says he loves me and stuff yet it's so confusing because we still have such an open relationship.
I guess in a way we could date other people. I trust him completely but still have doubts of us ever getting back together. I love him a lot and am happy to just be with him and still "together," yet not. He talks of the future sometimes and all that. I notice slowly I am gaining his trust and don't wanna ruin anything just yet. He's an amazing guy and I just wanna be with him; he's simply unique.
I wanna know what other people think about this.
I know I won't leave him or forget him yet, just curious if anyone can help me think of ways to gain his trust faster rather than letting time tell. Or should his trust just take time?
