do i tell my ex i still care for him? Watch

    me and my ex broke up over a year ago on really bad terms and till this day we are still bitter and any tiny piece of conversation we have nowadays is nasty.
    i think this is because we still really care about each other and cannot open up about our feelings so use sarcasm and insults instead. he always hated that i couldnt tell him the way i felt.
    so im going travelling for a year and it is fast approaching. i dont want to leave without at least putting us on good terms as i am now ready to be friends although ideally i would like to explain how i have never got over him and still really love him.
    would he appreciate this because i am telling him how i feel for once or is that really selfish and should i keep it to myself?
    i just know that if i dont at least try then i will always regret it though i dont want to mess him up because i want him to be happy.
    as well, if you think i should tell him should i tell him now or i go in four months so should i tell him closer to when i depart. and how should i explain?
    im strong enough to talk but that doesnt mean he is so i really dont know how he would react, what shall i do?

    It is very weird you post this actually. Me and my ex broke up about a year ago, on very very bad terms. Every conversation we had after that ended up in us swearing at each other, and it was just awful, so we cut contact.

    But tonight, he started speaking to me, only saying 'Merry Christmas, I hope you're feeling much better this Christmas than you were this time last year'. So I replied. We have just said we still care for each other very, very much, and are now being completely civil.

    Personally, I think you should do it, if you think it is right, go with your gut instinct. It is much better to at least try than regret it for months.

    Good luck
