Sounds like you could be projecting and thinking about what “could have been” with this guy. If you don’t see your current guy as forever then that’s a separate issue, it doesn’t mean that this “ex” of yours is the one. It’s probably healthier to move forward with your current guy or end things with him and go date new, fresh people

(Continued) ng other people. Of course, we went our separate ways and have kept in sparse contact over the years. We’ve seen each other occasionally, text each other, etc. I’m currently in a relationship with a great man but I’m not sure I see it as forever (still figuring my shit out) BUT I can’t get this ex off my mind. He texted me recently me for my birthday/Christmas and I him for the new year. I’m not sure if I should let it go/try to chat with him more to see how I feel? Or if I’m just projecting what could have been on a pretty standard dude

Looking for some MBA advice. Went to Indiana U and had mediocre GPA due to mental health struggles. Got medicated and saw a therapist and got a 4.0 my last semester. But still ended with 3.2 gpa. I am a good standardized test taker and am confident I can do well on GRE/GMAT. Given my poor undergrad GPA, am I a non-starter for an M7 MBA? Looking to improve myself as an applicant over the next year or so by seeking out leadership opps within and outside the firm. Any advice is appreciated!
