    your ex is just like the forbidden fruit and you're probably flattered that he still wants you. just remember why you broke up with him in the first place.

    No.1
    Exes are exes for a reason and I assume this one's no exception, so forget him. If you find that hard, stop seeing him - out of sight, out of mind.

    If you were truly sure you could see yourself marrying your boyfriend, wouldn't your ex and the thought of seeing other people be irrelevant? If you love your boyfriend, be happy with what you've got. I understand the grass is greener on the other side, but if you've got something special, don't risk losing it by messing around and being unsure.

    How old are you? If you really are worried about getting to date other guys, maybe you should take a break from this guy. There's a saying, 'if you love someone, let them go; if they come back to you, they're yours forever; if they don't, they never were yours.' If you two really are meant to be together, then you will make it later on in life, but a break might help you sort out whether it's the right thing for you.

    Hope you manage to sort things out :)
