Is sex with the ex ever a good idea?

28 September 2016, 07:41Shakila Alivitsa

Abuja - No it has never been. It is a very bad idea. You cannot justify it and it just puts you on an emotional rollercoaster you should not be on.

When you break up with someone, even if there is a chance that you might get back together; you need that space. Sex confuses all the reasons for that space.

Why are you doing it?

To remind them of what they are missing

Only happens when you are the one that was dumped or you want to get back together. Either way, still a bad thing because it will prevent you from moving on. If they suddenly decide to cut everything off because they actually do not want to get together; you will be left with emotional scars.

They are dating again and you are yet to find any potentials

Especially when you bumped into them and their new item makes you look like a mop. It will hurt your feelings but, that should not get to you.  Don’t have sex with the ex to try and prevent them from moving on because you are not ready. You will never move on and some other exes are quite bad. They will keep you around while they date around only to use you for their convenience. You are thinking they have also stopped but they will ask you, ‘Did I ask you to come back?’

You are already bored with being single

You will never be able to move on and any person that might have actually been interested will not want to get involved. People always know when you are still dealing with the ex.

You have no one else to have sex with

Abstinence is hard but it pays off when you actually meet someone new and have a better experience with them because you are still not hang on the ex.
