3 reasons to not have sex with your ex

21 May 2015, 14:56 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  What is a bad idea?

A bad idea is when logic deserts you the moment temptation is presented to you and you opt to take it rather than listen to logic.


A bad idea is also when you are scrolling in your phonebook on a cold June night (that is about to come up), feeling alone and forgotten by everyone and you see that number that you designated a nasty pseudonym and decide to press that green button.

It does not end their though, after a lengthy conversation one party offers to leave their comfortable abode and join the other to ‘catch up’. You know what that means. Catching up horizontally, if you make it to the right destination.


Sleeping with ex is usually a very good idea when you are drunk

As a woman, you just sit there and find a host of perfectly good excuses to make it not look so bad.


It is better than a one night stand

At least you know you will not get robbed after the encounter.

You allow yourself to think and believe that he has not been with anyone so technically, disease free.

Then the most common fallback is, at least you know them.


Ever other reason as to why you stopped sleeping with them in the first place goes out of the window.

First of all you do not know where they have been

Believe what you want but they have been somewhere. Does not matter if the brother or sister swore differently. I will advise you that if you commit to being stupid at least take the precaution of acting like they are a stranger. What do I mean? Use protection.

Does not matter if you broke up a week, a month or two days ago. Use protection! They were somewhere.


When logic sets in, it might come with consequences

What am I saying, take care not to be permanently joined for another twenty years-you may get pregnant with the one person you cannot stand when you are sober! That makes for bad parenting. I hate it when kids have to pay for adult mistakes!

You will wake up the following morning and you will ask yourself, ‘What did I just do?’

You are not thinking of that consequence up until the moment someone’s late. Reality sets in and for the next eighteen, twenty years of your life you are now permanently affixed to that person. I do not care whether you move abroad, stay in another county; you are officially linked.

In some cases… actually most cases-not with good results!


Emotional upheaval

And now for the boring stuff, you broke up for a reason. Cheating, separation over time, abuse, disconnect, both of you were no longer happy. When you get into that pit again, you are bound to pick up some dirt/mud as you try to climb back out. Those clothes will not be the same.
