Taking A Break

How do I start… I met a girl almost a year and a half ago at a camp. We talked just a little bit and found out we had a lot in common. As we continued talking, we found out we had a very strong mutual attraction; however, we were both already in relationships. We struggled knowing it was a sort of forbidden romance.

By some miracle, we ended up together. We started dating October 14, 2011. When we got together, a fresh set of problems arose. Her stepfather was none too fond of an older boy (I am three years older than her) being in a relationship with her. After several months of trying hard and proving myself, he approved of me and we became pretty good friends. I already knew her mother and she enjoyed my presence so there was no problems there. I had never been so happy in my life.

She was perfect regardless of all the flaws she thought she had. Recently, we hit some trouble. She said she was starting to feel different somehow. On December 30th, 2012, we broke up. On the night we broke up, we talked for awhile and I asked her several questions. She told me we might get back together someday and she needed some time to  figure things out. After about a week, she “accidentally” texted me which led to a short conversation about what had happened.

I asked her to promise me not to get involved with a friend who was being flirty with her. I found out today that she told him that she liked him to which he replied that he liked her too, but he was leaving for the military soon and he wouldn’t do that to me. I asked her and she said it had happened several days ago and that she was over him and realized he was a j**k.

Just moments ago, a mutual friend of ours told me some guy likes her and she likes him back and the only reason they aren’t dating is because she isn’t quite ready. I love her so much. I just don’t know what to do. I need help.
