    messing around with your ex


    I was just wondering, is it wrong to hook up with an ex every once in a while with no intention of getting back together? Lately I've been talking to my ex and I think he and I are both kind of wanting to do that. I broke up with him and don't want to be back in a relationship, but I miss the physical connection we had. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    In my past experience, it's better to just end it all together. You broke up for a reason and continuing a sexual relationship will only prolong the inevitable, you'll be apart in the long run, most likely. Plus if you continue feeding on this withdrawl you are having from being with this person so often and so long by having rendezvous it complicates everything. You might want to look at it this way, yes you are broken up, but if you keep on seeing them and having sex without any commitment, and they get a girlfriend/boyfriend where does that leave you. It only ends in tears. Good luck.

    It takes a very strong woman to be able to do what you are thinking.

    9.9 times out of 10, the couple gets back together. You're the one who broke up with him so you'll be the one to be putting it all back together. Is this what you want?

    I agree its better to end it all or nothing. I continued to have sex with an ex of mine (while he was already dating another female) we did this for over a year after we broke up. And didnt end until he moved to texas.

    I was still hoping for a relationship to rekindle. Though it never did the thought was in my mind. I think its impossible to have a friends with benefits relationship without one of you being effected.

    We all learn from experience...
