I can tell you my whatever-it-is was about eight years in the making (nine? I can't count very well). I was with First Boyfriend and Current Boyfriend was our very dear and good friend. They worked together. Then I broke up with First Boyfriend, and after a bit, started going with Current Boyfriend. Then I broke up with Current Boyfriend (and made him move out). Now, they're both my boyfriend (lucky girl). I wasn't going at it with intention, but here it is.
I know it's painful. I recommend working on compersion, being happy for him if he finds happiness in new loves. Keep on loving him, even if he isn't your boyfriend (now).
I really appreciate that response, thanks. =] Makes me feel a little hopeful still, haha. And you're right, I think we will be able to be happy for him if he moves on, and I know it's the right thing to do. Just gonna take some time!
