Advice: Time to dump that on-again, off-again relationship
I am currently in a debate with my head and my heart on if I should rekindle my relationship with a recent ex. My heart says "Yes, go for it! He's amazing, wonderful, funny, sexy, smart, and your best friend!" Yet my head (and everyone including key family members around me) says "Hell no, what are you, nuts?!" We dated on and off for two years and have been off now for 5 months. I moved out, got promoted and have a great life going on. He has a house, a career and we always have the best time together. I just don't want to hurt everyone around me for making a decision to be with him. But what I don't understand is why everyone has an opinion on it in the first place. It seems like these people are so unsupportive of my choices and see something in him that I don't? They never dated him, I did. It's so overwhelming to explain to them I don't want to bother, but this is the love of my life. I'm lost and confused. Any advice?
