So yesterday my step mom and I went out shopping so I could get myself out of the house and I ran into a male friend of mine that I had a brief fling with a couple years ago. We said hi and went about our days but he messaged me on Facebook later that night with small talk and I replied and we've been catching up a little bit. I don't have any feelings for him whatsoever anymore, but for some reason I still have this overwhelming feeling of guilt for talking to him because I'm still coping with my breakup. My ex and I haven't spoken in almost three weeks and it's definitely been really hard on me but I've been keeping myself distracted with school as much as possible. I'm afraid if I stop going for too long, I'll break down about it again. I just feel like every time my friend messages me, in the back of my mind I'm wishing it was my ex and that's where the guilt is coming from? I don't know. It's all really confusing because my ex hasn't reached out at all and I don't think he's going to again, so I shouldn't feel like this. Like I said, I don't even have feelings for my friend so it doesn't make sense to me. :/ I've been wanting to have my friends back and now that one of them has actually come around again, I immediately want to run the other way.
