Hi there,
I can see how you'd feel conflicted by this situation, because you have had quite a roller-coaster history with Gloria. In my opinion, you are probably just going to be setting yourself up for disappointment if you try to pursue a relationship with her again - but nothing is guaranteed, so it's hard to say for sure. I can only make this judgement based on what you've described from the past. It's true that you don't have to hold it against her and that it's possible that things have changed and she won't do the same thing to you again - but if she does, then I fear that you might end up feeling more wounded than you did before. It's a risk you can take if you think it's truly worth it to be with her, because, let's call a spade a spade, the heart wants what the heart wants and it's hard to talk yourself out of feeling a certain way about someone. I don't get the impression that she's using you, but I do think that she's not ready for a committed, mature relationship. Of course you can talk to her, date and have fun together, but I wouldn't pursue the intimate type of relationship with her that it sounds like you want - at least not now. Just take things slow with her and see how things progress. She needs to earn your trust back again, and that's not easy after what happened in the past. She might be sorry, and it sounds like she is, but her actions will speak louder than words. Just give it some thought and follow your gut.
Please let me know if you have any further questions. Good luck.
