Our expert says:
I really don't think outsiders can tell you what you ought to do in a situation like this ( though several of our regulars will probably try, helpfully, to respond after the weekend). From the sound of it your principle concern is that your Ex is persisting in behaving as if she expects a close friendship with you, when this is not only NOT what you want, and where it's what you thought you two had agreed NOT to do. Is there any substitute to sitting down calmly and talking this through with her, explaining that as you had said at the time of the breakup, you find it too painful to try to be friendly if the relationship is over, and would prefer it if she did not get so pally ?
