You are still having sex with your ex; what does it mean for you

10 August 2016, 17:36 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Rule No 1 of break ups, don’t have sex with each other.

Aside from the fact that you are not actually moving on, you do not get the clarity that you needed when it comes to them. Basically, sex clouds judgment.

You do not get the space that you needed when it comes to rethinking things or figuring out why the relationship had to end. In the end, if the both of you decide to get back together, it is not because you realized what they meant for you because you actually did not have space. Healthy space.

On the other hand, someone can just be using you while they seek other people. You are not moving on, you will be there thinking you are on the same page but they are just keeping you around for sex while they look for the partner they actually want to be with. When that happens it will be you, picking up the pieces over again while they move on. You were just convenient for a friends with benefits situation where they did not even have to go out on a limb to get one in the meantime.

Don’t use it as a strategy to win them back.

As mentioned, sex clouds judgment. You might not even want to be with someone but because you are still getting horizontal with them, you assume the issues are fixed. If you do not do it straightforward, then the issues are still there.

Don’t have sex with the ex when they get into a new relationship, find your own relationship. If they want you, they will not have the other person around. Don’t believe anything someone says when they are trying to get you naked.
