I'm in love with my ex
I am married and have been for 7 years. Before I met my husband I had a really great guy friend that I had a "friends with benefits" relationship with that we both wanted to go further but we were both too nervous to make the first move. I met my husband and our relationship grew and I cut it off with my friend. It wasn't until this point that he poured his heart out to me but in my mind, it was too late.Fast forward 7 years...my friend and I have a lot of mutual friends and have been doing things together more (my husband included). He and my husband have even become friends and my "ex" & I talk on the phone at least twice a week. He has remained single until recently and he's really falling for this girl he's seeing. Here's my problem, I love my ex. I think about him all the time and feel like I rushed into things with my husband and made a horrible mistake even though I love him. I'm very jealous of my ex's new gf and want so badly to have him back but I can't and it's driving me crazy. It's selfish of me to expect him to wait around forever and he deserves to be happy but I'm having trouble getting over this and have no idea what to do. I want to tell my husband but I'm not sure if that's a good idea. My husband and I have a great relationship and I can tell him anything but I think I may want my ex back partly because he and I can communicate so effortlessly and open. I love my husband but I love my ex too. I've thought about leaving my husband and trying to see where it goes with my ex but now that he has a gf, that can't happen plus I'm not even sure he still feels the same way about me.
