I recently just broke up with my boyfriend of a year and a half (yesterday). I basically broke up with him because he constantly lied and cheated. I know it was the right decision but i know he will probably try to get with me again like he always does,but this time I don't want to give in. It takes a lot for me to break up with him because I truly love him. But here comes my question.So I'm a sophomore and this senior likes me and i started talking to him today. His friend told me he liked me and i like him but i don't know if i like him in a relationship way. He's really not my type but he's a sweetheart. My ex was four years older than me and still immature. I treated him good by being faithful and loving him back, but good girls always finish last. I just want to know if i should pursue him or take a break from relationships for a while.

Since you just got out of what sounds like a very messy relationship, it would probably be best to take a breather. When you're still upset from a break-up it's harder to make rational decisions about relationships. I'd say give yourself some time to grieve and get a better sense of who you are and what you want out of a relationship in the future before jumping into a new one. Especially since it sounds like you're not even that interested in this guy, it's probably not the best idea to pursue him.
I also applaud you for ending things for good with a toxic boyfriend. I know how hard that is to do and it takes a lot of guts. Kudos and enjoy your new freedom

Thanks for the advice. I've been a lot happier(even though I'm still a little hurt)since I put an end to it . I just wanna be able to have fun and be a free spirit since I haven't been able to in a while.
