I Live With My Ex - I Want Her Back
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
My girlfriend and I have split up after 2 years of being together. I had issues with the complete lack of intimacy and she worried about that, but the final straw was that she felt she needed more experience with other guys, and that I should other people as well.
Here's where the problem truly is, neither one of us can afford a place on our own, and we still have to live together, in different rooms now, though. I realized that of my problems were moot, and I respect her decision to see other people, but I want her back. What should I do?
As much as you theoretically might think it will work, it is NEVER a good idea to room with an ex because of the emotional turmoil it throws you both in. Sure you can't live on your own. So find other roommates to live with for now until you get on your feet. If you put yourselves through the torment that's about to happen it could cause you to end up hating each other, and losing any chance for a friendship to survive, never mind to get back together again.
Once you get some breathing room, I have a ton of tips and even an ebook on how to get your ex back again. Work on it slowly but surely, and you will have a chance. But don't try it while you're living with her and she's dating another guy! That can lead to all sorts of fighting.
