After a few months we started keeping in contact again and used to text each other daily.
I first told her this about 3 years ago but she stopped talking with me after that.
This almost certainly won't work but you will then be set up to get a really great girl to spend the rest of your life with.
Were you trying to win back your ex boyfriend or girlfriend, but suddenly learned they were going out with someone new? your ex started dating before you could fix your broken relationship. It doesn't matter how long your ex has been with their new boyfriend or girlfriend, or how deeply in love they might seem. Buried beneath the surface your ex still has true feelings and emotional attachments toward you.
The most important thing is NOT to remain close friends with her WHILE she is seeing someone else.
This will only help her cushion her own fall from the break up.
All of these reasons mean she'll be on the lookout for any potential guy that comes her way.
