Do I tell him the truth?
I recently broke up with my bf (about 5 months ago) and he has since gotten a new girlfriend. I lied to him about why I broke it off.
I told him that I felt chemistry with another man and that I was worried he was going to cheat on me again. I also said that him travelling down to see me would become a burden and I didn't want that.
The real reason is that I feel he deserves better than me. I want him to experience uni to the fullest and I'm broken. Do I tell him the truth? Or save him the pain and hassle?
Do not tell him this. Sorry but you need to go no contact until you're self aware and independently happy. He has a new gf now and you would only be intruding and saying something that you hope he will see as a reason to get back together with you. That's selfish and the girl he's with now doesn't need to have the ex gf expressing her true feelings after 5 months.
Even if the girlfriend is new? Only started dating this February from what I can tell.
