CoachJenK :

Hi. Welcome

CoachJenK :

It is clear to me that he has feelings for you and most likely feels bad for breaking up so wants to know whether a friendship can happen to make himself feel better about the break-up. What are your feelings about the break up and remaining friends?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
He did this to me after I caught him out with another girl. He became very angry and said he could not be around me anymore. After that he wondered if I could be friends absolutely not. I felt insulted.

ahhh now I see. thank you for giving me more information. I commend you for having that wonderful boundary. You deserve more than that and I am glad you think so as well. Sounds like he wants the best of both cheat but still have you in his life in friendship. I am with you on this and as i said I commend you for having that boundary and for taking care of yourself.
Now the work is to begin your healing so you can move on and trust others to have a mutual, caring and respectful relationship. Let me know how else I can provide support.
