I'm a single mother of a three boys. Discovering that I have been in denial about my feelings about my ex (father of my boys). I broke up with him, but we have been on and off for the last 7 years. Last year I said it was enough, decided to "break up"... now here we are again same place, except he is now saying he doesn't foresee a future with me but loves me. He is seeking help for some emotional issues, but I discovered he has been seeing a woman. Spoke to her while he was at my home, and I let him stay. I am confused and lost. I thought I had control over me, and now I find myself trying to control him and our outcome. Is it jealousy, is it love, what is it? He will not tell me that what he wants. I told him that he can not have another person while being with me, he said he doesn't owe it to me. He's resentful and he admits it. My gut is telling me that he's using me, that he is enjoying this. But when he holds me and he's calm he says all the right things, and I believe him. I'm confused and lost, anyone out there that has gone through something familiar?
