Guy I'm seeing at uni broke up with his ex just before start of uni watch

    I'm a first year at Birmingham uni, I met this guy during freshers (he's 1st year too) and we hit it off - now we basically act like a couple but are not officially boyfriend&girlfriend yet, but it's what we are heading towards. We both have busy schedules so aren't with each other 24/7 or anything. He's a lovely lovely guy and both of us are really into each other. However, earlier this week I bumped into one of his flat mates on a night out and they mentioned how he had a girlfriend he broke up with right before he came to uni. I think they were together for about a year. I assume they broke up solely because of uni. He still texts her I think (have seen her name come up on his phone) but I'm guessing they text just as friends... I hope. He isn't aware I know anything about his ex, and I don't know whether to bring it up. This is because right now everything is so perfect between him and me and turning a bit psycho isn't the vibe I want to give off to him! Should I wait a while? Help!! Why make a problem from nothing? Don't know what to do

    Just take it steady. Only time will tell, so live for the moment. Who knows you might end up married with 3 kids post graduation..

    Just take it slow, you're not even committed yet. Unless you're absolutely certain that he'll go back to his ex, then you can still try to pursue him. She's in another city anyway so you don't have to worry about her. And it's still early days, you don't know each other yet. This sort of thing is only worth worrying about when you're committed to someone. For now, he's just a friend, just a guy you know.
