Issues with ex

My ex and I broke up a week ago. There had been few other break-ups and make-ups in the few months that we''ve been together and I''ve made up my mind that I''m not going back there because she has too much baggage and is not ready to deal with them. I can''t commit to someone who''s not willing to let me help her past her pains.

The problem now is that we didn''t lose contact. We still text one another but I''m not emotionally attached anymore. I do like her still but I''m consciously interacting with her, because I''m aware that we meet people for a reason and if at all through our contact I can be of help, so be it. There is now physical attraction which she thinks is what could get me back with her but I''m entertaining this thought of a possible physical relationship merely because it''s been good and being single, why not engage with someone I''ve been familiar with. Now, I have a strategy to this to cover my back emotionally, but I need to understand the impact this might have moving forward.

Thanks.

Sounds like a reasonable decision to end this stop-start affair. But if you decide to end it, END IT ! That means no texting, no SMS, etc. Its usually not easy, especially at first, to learn to like someone you used to love. A physical relationship isn't a good excuse for getting back with someone with whom there's not a satisfying and CONSISTENT emotional relationship, too.
