Our expert says:
Did you remain young and naive for 12 years ? DId you remain convinced, all that time, that you needed to "keep him in your life" ? It does indeed sound as though you have seriously overlooked yourself, in the service of him and his ego. If he now "has a serious girlfriend ( which implies that you are NOT a serious gf, and that he doesn't care much about you ) it makes more than sense for you to move on to rediscovering and developing yourself, and looking towards a relationship of equals with someone who will properly appreciate you.
Why tie yourself to him out of inappropriate guilt ? He has another, closer, more valued girlfriend - how many does any one man need or deserve ? If you move on for your own needs, he is NOT "abandoned" as he is with her.
All that is stopping you from walking away are the strongs of your own excessive sense of duty towards someone who is apparently not at all faithful to you or concerned about you.
