in Love and Relationship by
My ex broke up with me weeks ago and I still haven't gotten over it. It was a bad break-up and I still have so many feelings for him.

My friend and I have been going out and seeing each other. We even kissed a few times and said "I love you" to each other, but I don't know if it's real love that I feel. I feel like I rushed into everything too quick. I did say that I want to be just friends with him, but it's like he's rushing into everything too quick, as well. I do honestly think we're just friends with benefits. I never confirmed anything when it comes to being in a relationship with him. Of course, we've been quite acting like a couple, but I'm still in love with my ex and I think this relationship with my current friend is just a "friends with benefits" kind of thing.

We're going out to see a movie tonight and I've been thinking a lot about just telling him that I need to take a break from relationships... even if it's for a long time, but I can't do it today or tomorrow, since we're going out and I feel that it would be too disrespectful to bring that up so soon.

Okay so if you were having a "fwb" relationship you are both "doing it wrong" .. saying "I love you" is NO part of that. A "fwb" relationship is "supposed" to not have emotional attachments (which makes them so very difficult to maintain because when you are intimate with someone generally emotions become involved) .. However.. if you are unsure you want to be in any sort of relationship it is best to break it off as soon as possible, the longer you wait the more you are going to hurt this guy.

sounds like a rebound romance. don't lead the guy on. tell him now don't drag it out and use him. you'll hurt his feelings. take your break from all guys for awhile til you get your head together.
