    I have just come out of a year and a half relationship with a guy after we decided to go our separate ways after he admitted that he got drunk and had sex with another girl.

    A few weeks in to starting at a new school and I got with a new guy at a party, not thinking that anything would come of it. However since then, we have been to numerous parties together, spent loads of time talking and stuff, but he's recently admitted to me that he really 'likes me' but does not want anything serious, and would rather have a 'friends with benefits' kind of thing. I was absolutely fine with this, but now my ex is also in touch with me, and really wants another shot with me.

    I am split between just staying in a relaxed thing with the new guy, or taking back my very caring and loving ex-boyfriend who 'apparently' regrets everything so much.

    I am fearful of getting hurt but I think it is inevitable in this situation. But put it this way, at the moment I think I am in favour of keeping it as a relaxed thing with the new guy.

    The answer may seem obvious to you, but any advice would be appreciated.
    Thankss

    No no, he cheated on you. Find someone who respects you enough to never cheat on you. Keep a relaxed thing with the new guy and see where it takes you, but I for one would never go back to a cheater

    Your ex wasn't caring and loving. He slept with another girl. He probably does regret it, but it doesn't mean he deserves another shot. Could you really ever trust him again? I've been in this situation before. My ex cheated and I got back with him, but soon enough we broke up again because I didn't trust him at all, no matter how much I told myself I did.

    Trust is everything.
