Three months later, after feeling like he was growing distant, I asked him what was up and he confessed he didn’t want a relationship. He has, he has said, a history of doing this to women, which he blames on having his heart broken by a cheating girlfriend. And now, after a month, he wants to try again. He feels ashamed of his behaviour and understands my trust has been eroded, so wants me to decide on my terms. He has been erratic in the past, often changing his mind and saying a lot of things that he later says he didn’t mean….so would it be foolish to give him a third chance??? — Foolish?
