Split in between two from Klerksdorp, North West writes…
My dearest Split
Do you really need Liewe Lulu if you have the answer? Love of your life? Butterflies? A daily ‘I love you’ to the man who is not even in your bed at this moment? Girl, was there even a choice to begin with?
New bae never stood a chance.
You know I do be getting preachy about honesty and communication, but here is the tea chile.
Love is honesty. How can you love these men when you cannot be honest with them? Then you might as well not be in a relationship.
Being lied to hurts and you never put someone you care about through such a painful situation. None of you deserve that. You don’t get to pick and choose whose life you flip upside down. What’s worse is that you are not only lying to ex bae and new bae, but you are lying to yourself as well.
I think you have some serious introspection ahead of you.
You have three choices here:
Option one: Break it off with new bae and reignite your past love.
Option two: Cancel ex bae (as you should) and keep on working on your new relationship;
Option three: Break it off with both and let them go on their merry ways. It is the festive season and no one has time for stress. Re batla ho ba happy, le carefree. Own up to your own mess even if it means you will lose one or both. Be honest about your own feelings.
