I've been a single mom for the last 5 years. I have had no other men in my life because I have been working on myself, going back to school, and making sure my son's life is as normal as possible. My ex comes once a week to visit my son at my home and we get along fine ... then he leaves. At first it was fine but after a while there was an ache. It was me who decided to end the 8 year relationship because all we ever did was argue. I knew it wasn't healthy for my son to be around that so I did what i thought was right. But now its OK again. He's with someone else who's he's been with for a few years now. I refuse to meet her and whenever the subject comes up it always ends in a fight. I know it sounds like I regret my decision but honestly I don't. I just think we're different people now but it's to late to do anything about it. When we're together it's as easy as breathing and feels like home to me. I need to know if I should just get on with my life. I don't know if it's just some biological primal need to keep my family together or if these feeling are real. What should I do?
