Stay or Walk Away?
I recently went out with my ex. We talked sincerely. I asked him what we are doing and to define the relationship. I told him that I don’t want to pressure him to commit to anything he isn’t prepared for, but I wanted to know what we are and where this is going. He said that he has feelings for me, and that he isn’t interested with other girls. He asked for more time for him to sort his work life so that he can have more time for his personal life.
I told him that I didn’t want to be an option. He said I am not an option. However i think he meant that there’s no other girls. But I meant that, i want him to prioritize our relationship, should we get back together. Because I felt like I am in competition with his job.
I understand that we are here in this place mainly for jobs. But, I want to be his priority too. But I just can’t ask that of him in fear that he will always choose his job.
Should I just continue with moving on? Or Should I believe him and wait?
