How do I make the friendship more
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
Me and my ex have a son together. We are friend for his sake, we do stuff together as a family. I don't know what to do. We had a understanding (me and my ex) that we are friends with all benifits of a relationship, except we aren't really. It worked for both of us, cause we were both confused about everything. This weekend I wanted to talk to him about something that bothered me and he just said he doesn't want to talk. So I left and went home. The next day he sms's me and says we should be friends and nothing more. We talked afterwards and he realised that it was not nessasary, but said it was to late to change his mind now. He found someone else to keep him busy ( long distance) so that he doesn't have to see her a lot but still have someone. He doesn't lov her or care for her. How do I get him to go back to the way things were, I don't want to lose him to someone else. How do I do this without him thinking I am forcing him into it.
About all you can do is to remain his friend and hope things take a turn for the better.
Fortunately you have your son to keep you together.
Invite him over for his favorite dinner once every two weeks.
His time with this long distance romance will probably be short. And soon he will want benefits again.
Be patient and be nice to him.
Good luck! George
