So about 9 years ago, my first love and I broke up. We were only 19 years old and had been together for 3 years. I have since had only 2 serious relationships. I just recently broke up with someone whom I have 2 children with. I have dated a lot of guys in the past, but I have never met someone whom I felt so much connection with since my first love. I ran into him a few weeks ago and since, I cannot stop thinking about him. During our run in, he admitted that he never stopped loving me. I don't want to jump right into another relationship like I always have, but my heart tells me that the timing is right. How do I know that what I am feeling is genuine and not just another rebound? What should I do?
