So my and my ex-girlfriend have transitioned to a friends with benefits agreement (I suppose). This was not something I wanted, as I wanted to be with her officially, but she told me that she wants to focus on school. we’ve been together for four years, and I can’t envision loving life without her. Our lives are too intertwined for us to just forget about each other. Alongside this, throughout this transition period for us, she always says that I’m the only one she wants to be with and that she can’t picture herself with any other guy. As I figured this was a friends with benefits agreement, she still says and acts as if we’re still in a relationship. I’m in a constant state of confusion. She says she wants to dedicate all her time to school, so she can’t be in a relationship right now, which I understand, but I can’t help but feel like she’s toying with my emotions, because she knows that I want to be in a relationship with her. I’ve had friends tell me to just walk away. They say I need to let her go. They look at me and just shake their heads when they hear I’m still talking to her, but I honestly don’t want to be without her. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this, especially the women who indulge in NoFap. Where should I go from here?
