My boyfriend is dating me and another girl
If you can overcome the pain you are feeling over the break up enough to take a position in his life as a friend, you'll have a chance to lay the foundation for more in the future.
When a man feels he can trust a woman he'll start to confide in her.
I can honestly tell you from personal experience (when women alluded my understanding) it came down to power.
Before I mislead you, it's NOT about gaining power over you.
Don't ever talk about your broken relationship or your hopes for a future with him.
Once he feels he can confide in you, you'll be the shoulder he turns to when things get rocky in his new relationship. Actually that's just the tip of the iceberg of what you're feeling.
How you react can either guarantee your real devotion to him or have him believing you don't really care.
Either way this borderline passive aggressive act is done with purpose although you will find most men don't even realize they're doing it.
You're about the know the absolutely truth because at why do guys... Here are ALL the main or more common reason as to why it's happening. A man will talk about other women wanting him in an attempt to stir jealousy.
If that guy has too many insecurities and is constantly searching for validation he will (at times) feel helpless.
As always, when a man feels "helpless" you're likely to see parts of him you may not enjoy... Now I don't want you to believe he's not strong enough for you or that you should dump a man who's not secure enough for you.
You want to establish yourself as that person in your ex boyfriend's life.
Do it by offering your support to him and all the while keep some emotional distance from him.
