I am still hanging out, having sex and getting drunk with my ex even though she broke up with me

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM hanging out, having sex and getting drunk with my ex, even though she broke up with me. I still deeply care for her.

I am 25 and my ex is 23. We were together for two years.

After the break up we decided and agreed we weren’t exclusive to each other. We remained that way until she went on a two-week holiday.

Neither of us saw anyone else while she was away, but her needs and desires seemed to change completely when she returned.

We no longer have as much sex, which isn’t an issue at all, but we both still strongly care for and like one another.

I am interested in seeing other people purely to try to move on. We are best friends and if I could be with her I would.

She is adamant she doesn’t want a relationship even though we are still extremely close.

DEIDRE SAYS: She might have mixed feelings about your relationship ending, which is why she keeps up contact with you.

But it’s time for you to think about yourself. Staying in touch stops you from getting over her. Tell her you are making an effort to move on.
