I dated a guy many years ago. I was completely in love with him. He was my soul mate. However he finished with me after 3 years and I was devastated. The last time he saw me I was crying begging him to give it another go. He never did and it took me years to get over it. I haven't heard from him for 6 years. I am on a dating website and last year he contacted me wanting to meet. I still have feelings for him and agreed. However he kept saying he was busy and eventually stopped contacting me. I found that strange. Nine months later he texts me out of the blue wanting to meet. After a few days later I replied. Again I agreed and gave possible dates. He never texted back. Again I found that strange. Two months later he contacts me again wanting to meet. Again I agreed and we eventually met. I asked why he didn't respond to my last text and he said that because I wrote 'We can meet up if you like' - it didn't sound really keen so he left it. We met at 9pm and we were out till four in the morning chatting. I thought the date had gone really well. He said he had always thought about me, that he had let someone good go, that I was one of the big loves of his life, that I looked really good. He asked very early in the night if we could meet again for dinner and I readily agreed. At the end of the night he did start talking about some girl he had been seeing who had a child and who returned to her ex partner. He had been suspicious for a long time that she was too friendly with her ex. Not sure why he was telling me that. I was surprised to see him on the dating website again after our date for hours on end. We exchanged a few texts and the last one said he was thinking of me. I e-mailed how my week had gone. He never responded to it and I was really surprised. 2 months on and I still haven't heard from him so I decided to e-mail him to ask him how he is. He read the e-mail the day I sent it but never replied. Why would my ex do this? He knows how upset I was when he finished it all those years ago so why has he played with my feelings again? It has upset me all over again. Can anyone try to explain his behaviour? Would be very grateful.
