My ex and I have a fwb situation going on. We haven’t seen each other since lockdown, but texting. It looked like he had started seeing someone before lockdown and had moved in. He is home now and swears it was a friend.

Last night asking how his dating is going, he replied came off dating sites in February and no interest, wants to concentrate on work and how I was hard to beat ( jokingly). We got flirty and were joking about breaking lockdown, the taboo, the shame. But both agreed it’s not worth it. Said lockdown was extended foreplay for us. now he is dropping by today for a catch up. We were talking about missing human touch and we both admitted we missed lying cuddling and our amazing bear hugs. We settled on a Walk in the park as not coming in the house.

He has texted now and said come to mine and we can sit in his garden in the sun. Ideal as easier to talk social distanced. But I don’t trust myself around him. I am tempted as it’s been a long lockdown. But would never forgive myself if we got close and one of us became ill.

Ahhh. When will this end. I need a hug. Should I see him for a catch up. Or will it end breaking lockdown.

You know it will end in breaking lockdown. What do you want us to say? To remind you that there is still a virus out there? That the more people break lockdown the more chance of a second peak and more unnecessary deaths?

End things with him if he's your ex

Sorry didn't mean that to be quite so harsh. I am sympathetic honestly but the less we comply with lockdown the greater the risk of a second peak and more unnecessary deaths. And the longer it goes on

You need to think about why he is your ex. Did he leave? Then chances are you are light entertainment. Did you leave, you must have had a reason.

If either of you are hoping to resume the relationship, you better talk things through. But agree with pp, if you meet up, you know what will happen.

Aaahhh I don’t think an ex can be fwb. Fwb by definition is without emotional attachment, you’re gonna get hurt!
I know that’s not what you’re asking but even if we wasn’t in a lockdown it’s a bad idea

No feelings. Better as friends and fun. Been at this a while and it works. Decided to meet in the park as it’s less tempting. Ahh when will we get to touch someone!
