So I guy I like has just got out a long term relationship. They were each others first love and obviously he seemed heartbroken over their breakup.
He didn’t talk to me much when the two of them were together, but he says that was because they depended on each other so much, which I fully understand.
They broke up about 2 months ago and since then I have really noticed a difference in how he acts, not only around me but everyone. He is way more open and funny and I had never seen this side of him before. We started to talk way more, spend loads of time together and grow pretty close. I have to say I think I started to become attracted to him.
Turns out he likes me too. Apparently it was obvious to all my friends that he liked me. He even told a couple of people.
I think I like him too, but should I be cautious about the fact he has only just got out a three year relationship. I have never really been with someone before and I’m kinda scared he might just be using me because as I said, I like him too. Him and his ex still talk on the phone but I don’t know whether I should be worried about this or not.
They tried to break up on good terms which may be why they are still so comfortable with each other.
I guess my question is, is it too soon? Am I just setting myself up for heartbreak?

Hi, the short answer is it’s too soon for him, especially with him still talking to his ex. That wouldn’t sit with anyone. I got with a guy after a month since he’d broken up with his ex of 6 years! And throughout our relationship I felt like a therapist for where he went wrong with his ex and it’s such a horrible feel when you want to give a person your love but they’re getting over an ex. Unrequited love is horrible. My advice, there’s no harm to carry on talking as you are but for him give it time and make sure you’re not the rebound because I sure as hell was. Especially with it being your first proper relationship you don’t know what to expect but take your time xx
