Overall however I still don't know what will happen.I found out that the other girl he is dating is someone in a poly relationship and there's no possibility of something long term with her.
Dating an ex can be tricky, so approach with caution.
You are wonderful to talk to on here, very intelligent and witty, I commend you for what you have accomplished so far, and I do feel with all the knowledged you have found by research and reading about matters of the heart, you are well on your way in finding love.
There sure are a lot of people on this board in the same situation. Well, some time has passed and I've had some good developments.
If he is taking it slowly with the intention to be intimate again, to be dating another girl is not the way to go.
In that case then, how would he feel if dated other guys, if he says he doesn't have a problem, something is wrong, and because you love him, it may just hurt you. A month was about how long I was setting in my head as a "time to move on" date.
