I have been broken up with my ex-girlfriend of 2 years for about 3 months now. She lied to me, cheated on, played, and threw away the love I gave her. And while I am over her, it still hurts watching her with her new boyfriend who I know is not a good person. I love her and I always will as she is the first girl I ever loved and I have some sort of emotion connection to her that will never waiver. During this difficult time, I have been talking to other girls and spending time with them but I only see them as placeholders. I love the feeling of having a girlfriend but is it what’s truly best for me? I’d really love your advice on how to tackle all of these issues.
