I met my boyfriend 4 months ago and we have been dating exclusively since that time. We spend nearly every night together and overall get along well. 2 months into our relationship I figured out that he had broken up with his girlfriend of nearly 3 years about 2 weeks before we met. She was terrible to him, cheated on him constantly and he eventually had enough. Essentially, I realized I was a rebound.
He tells me he cares about me very much, considers our relationship to be serious, but is “hesitant in his feelings for me.” He said it is frustrating because I am the best woman he has ever been with. The question I struggle with is: Do I stay with him and nurture his feelings of trust and hopefully, eventually, love? Or does he clearly need to be single in order to sort out his feelings for his ex? I don’t know what the right thing to do is.
