When we start dating someone, we slowly work our way into their life. Yet when we breakup we often try to quickly rip ourselves out completely, and this can create even more pain and unneeded discomfort. We think that we need to act on our current pain and focus only on making it stop right away — disregarding the possibility of keeping that person in our lives. One way to maintain a healthy relationship is through sex with an ex.
If you don’t trust your ex or if they are abusive, you should completely terminate the relationship. But what about those with healthy exes who realize a longer-term romantic relationship just isn’t right, but the sex is still good?
