A male age 22-25, anonymous writes:

Me and my boyfriend recently broke up because we've been in a long distance relationship after he moved out the state. We both didn't cheat, but we just couldn't keep the spark in LDR and we decided to move on since we both have different directions. He told me he still wanted to keep in touch with me although we aren't together anymore. He wanted me to give him my email so he could contact me, however, i was so furious and heartbroken and blocked him everywhere, its been afew days now, and i noticed him sending me a friend request using another new account he just made since i blocked him on his old account. I didn't deny it, i just kept it there, and i don't know if i should really add him so he could contact me again every once in a while, or should i just erase him completely from my life? Is it childish to block him? I really miss him, and i really want to hear from him, but it's just hard for me after the break up. He didn't cheat or anything, it's just weird both have different plans now, and we know that the relationship won't last or work. Shall i just accept the fact that he didn't do anything wrong and just stay in touch with him? Am i being naive with my decision if i really talked to him again?

Honeypie agony auntI think the BEST way for you to move on and move forward in life is to NOT hold on to an ex.

If you keep him around it's sort of like an anchor that hold you from moving on.

If you feel you could be "friends" down the line, let him know and then just keep him blocked until you feel ready. But mostly, I don't see the point in keeping exes around like this. He isn't a friend, he is an ex. And it's over.

Consider this. If you meet someone new down the line and he keeps in contact with ALL or some of his exes how would you feel?
