Four years ago, while I was on vacation, I met this really great guy. He's significantly older than I am (about 10 years), but we really hit it off. Over the years, we have kept in touch off and on. Two years ago, I met my current boyfriend and we've been extremely happy, talked about marriage, etc.
Well, the last few months have been difficult. Our lives have gotten much busier and it's beginning to take a toll on our relationship. We don't see each other nearly as much as we used to. Last week, the guy that I met on vacation 4 years ago popped back up I didn't hide anything from my boyfriend and told him that this happened.
We've been talking via text and Skype the whole week. Oddly enough, we still have a really strong connection. Although we haven't seen each other since that ONE day, four years ago, we haven't seemed to skip a beat.
So, my problem is that I still love my boyfriend very very much and can see myself with him in the future, but now that this guy is back in my life, I seem so confused. I can't tell if it's because we truly have a great connection and there's a reason we're talking again or if it's because of the attention he's been giving me.
Has anyone been in this kind of situation? I gratefully appreciate any advice you could give me.
Thank you all!
