I recently broke up with my partner and we’re finding it hard to maintain healthy boundaries. When we first broke up (about two months ago) we still spent lots of time together and were still having sex, so we got back together. We’ve done that another 3 times now and it’s really difficult for my mental health not knowing whether we’re off or on.
I think we’ve finally decided it’s over which feels like a massive relief, however, we share all the same friends and when we do see each other we end up sleeping together. The biggest connection we had was sexually and as there are still feeling of love there it’s hard to say no and break away. It’s human nature to crave connection but I know this isn’t the best place to go looking for it.
Any tips on how to set clear boundaries moving forward, so we’re able to maintain a healthy friendship and not upset each other when we do eventually start dating again?
