My ex wants to remain a friend

Aug 20, 2012, 08:07 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, When I split with my guy, I had a difficult time focussing on my work. I was so hurt that it took me months to recover.

But my guy seemed to have moved on very fast. He even had the cheek to tell me that let’s be friends. Boy, was I wrong! Whenever we would meet he would end up making fun of me and remind me of all our intimate moments. This caused me even more agony and now I don’t even feel like talking to him. How do I overcome my heartache?

Dear Haya,
Your ex is a jerk and there is no reason why you should be in touch with him even as a friend. It is clear that he just had a fling with you and till he was satisfied he was okay. One fine day he got bored and dumped you. Remember he did not deserve your love. He did not care for you or your feelings. If he was really in love with you, he would have not treated you in this manner. So stay clear of him. I really can’t understand how you could even have a conversation with a man who gets cheap thrills talking about his intimate moments. Do not be in touch with this man at all. You are better off without him. Remember time is the greatest healer. It will take a while but you will overcome him. And after his recent behaviour, it should be easier for you.
