Very Confused
Hey,

I had been in a very fulfilling relationship and we broke up two months ago, he also said that he is not sure if we can be together again as lovers besides being friends but he calls now and then to say hi. Now the confusion begins, when he decided on breaking up because of rumours spread about me and him cheating on each other and a friend confronting me about him having thousands of affairs (none of this are true), I reacted badlly (sent him a nasty email expressing my disappointments, i did not think ) , he got so hurt by that email and all this time I thought we broke up because of the email but then again it does not make much sense,the contents of the email were not deep at all.....he calls now and then to say hi but I he is punishing me for the hurt I've caused, he always makes me feel guilty for that and always makes sure that I remeber what I've done despite the thousand apologies.This morning when we spoke, I told him I miss him he says he misses me too and he needs us to meet soon, he will make time for us. now I don't understand that since there is no us anylonger, how am I to handle this because I still love him and I know he loves me too. (he is the one calling all the time)
Am I just being paranoid or is there a chance for us?

S, learn from this experience. Even though it may be too late to go back to the situation that existed before you allowed some other malicious person to screw up your relationsip wit this guy, you can learn lessons to apply in future to ensure this can't happen again.
DO think before you act such as sending an angry e-mail. One of the problems with email is that it is so easy to ratle it off and sent it. In the Good Old Days, you had to put pen to paper, take the time to write it, fold it, find an envelope, find a stamp, and this all gave you far more time to cool off and think about it again. It's worth making a special folder in your email-program for storing messages you have written, but need time to think about before sending off.
