Dear Worried Girl,
You are playing with fire, I have been there and done this.........it is not going to work as it sounds to me like you are in denial if you think you don't have deeper feelings for this other man and you just want to be friends.
My best advice, let him go his own way as he has been living his live just fine as you too have been living yours with your hubby.
IMHO this is a " can't have your cake and eat it too" situation. Sorry to be so straight forward.
I have been in your position and I know it is tough to want the best of both worlds but sometimes we have to let go and I am glad you took my words in the way they were offered, as supportive and in friendship.
Here are the reasons that I would tread lightly on becoming best friends with an old love.
Reconnecting with an old flame may create excitement in your life and make you lose your perspective. This can allow you to forget what caused your break-up in the first place.
On the whole, an old flame is just an "old flame" - a relationship that has outlived its worth and is best left alone.
Of course these are just my thoughts and reactions and you must make your own choices after looking at renewing the friendship from all angles. I am sure you will do what you feel is best for you. (((((Hugs)))))))
With kindest personal regards,
Hello Worried Girl,
