I shared a very intense, somewhat unstable relationship with a man for several years. We were together on and off, but about two years ago I finally told him that I wanted no further contact from him; I couldn't handle the drama any more. I hate to admit that I still do love this man, and cutting off contact with him was very painful, but I know that he is unhealthy for me and I need to move on. He ignored my request for no contact, and would e-mail me periodically, at first to tell me how much he hated me for making that decision, but more recently now to tell me about how happy he is with his life and new girlfriend, etc. A few weeks ago he wrote and told me that they are getting married. He said that he will always care about me, and wants to remain in contact and be friends. I am absolutely devastated by this news, and I don't know what to make of his request to be friends. I am currently in a very healthy, strong relationship myself, but this news from my ex is seriously impairing my ability to to enjoy my own relationship. What should I do?
