Question

I have got myself into a relationship which i have been in for more than 2 years. my feelings for this person are extremely strong and only Allah knows how i feel him. during this time we committed zina more than once knowing it was wrong. i feel extremely guilty about this and have committed myself to not do it again. I am trying in every way possible to repent and Alhamdulliah my Iman has gotten a lot stronger. We really want to have a future together so are doing everything we can to repent. We have stopped seeing each other, sharing affectionate words, but occasionally speak to each other. I find It really hard to not speak to him yet I still want a future with him. What shall I do?
