Dear Andreus,

I recently broke up with my boyfriend. We are still friends, though it was mostly his decision to breakup. I was fully invested in the relationship, but I realize that sometimes things just don’t work out. Over the past few weeks, I have started to talk to someone new. Now suddenly, my ex is showing interest in me, acting as if he wants me back and suggesting it in conversation. I feel as if he is just doing it out of jealousy or realization of what he lost. I do still love him though. Should I give him another chance?

Dear Jason,

Clearly, this is a decision that only you can make. From a perspective, I would give it time.  I generally don’t usually go backwards, because people usually have realizations after the fact – and we all know that hindsight is a b*tch. You also have to consider how invested you might be in the new guy. This could certainly be jealousy, because people sometimes don’t realize what you meant to them until they see you happy with someone else. I would keep doing you, and don’t make any sudden decisions about anything. You are in charge of your happiness now – choose wisely. Best of luck!
