Residual feelings for Ex
      01/28/09 03:11 AM

So I met someone who piques my interest. We have had good conversations, but we haven't had the talk about status only because we haven't known each other that long. My Ex and I still talk all of the time and occasionally we slip back into our comfort zone and have sex ( we are both positive). But now that I am considering being open to dating someone else I feel that I can't have my cake and eat it too ( in terms of still fooling around with my ex). I truly love my ex, but there have been so many rocky moments with us an distrust and just drama, and I don't want that anymore. He says he has changed and in order to be in a relationship with him again I have to have faith that he really has.
Timing has never been on our side. We found out about our status weeks after we got into a spat and broke up. We got back together and we were doing well, but then I went thru a bout of depression and we had another falling out. He started seeing someone else and I am at a point now that I am not ready to be vulnerable with him again. But I haven't resolved the feelings that I have for him.
I don't want to be irresponsible and start a relationship with someone new when all of these feelings are ever-present, but as of now it is nothing serious and I'm not going to fool myself into thinking that I am ready to move on.
BUT...how do I get out of this limbo phase. My ex expresses the willingness to give a relationship another try and I am tempted to give it another go, but when I think about the rollercoaster that relationship can be I am not sure.
