But what if they try to get back? Well, if you are single, you might not mind it but what if you have already started a new relationship? You can't risk any trouble in your settled life, right? Read on to know what to do....
Explain why you can't get back or stay in touch. Be quick in telling about your new relationship and try to keep the conversation short. Ensure that you don't display any emotions as that might suck both of you into the drama. Never be harsh, but be compassionate.
Share Love But In A Different Way
You don't have to insult your ex for coming back. Try to understand that person's pain with your heart felt love but at the same time, don't allow that person to take it for granted and harass you.
Time To Cut Contact
Staying in contact could be very foolish at least when you are dealing with someone who is too clingy. Therefore, 'unfriend' that person on Facebook and change your phone number too.
No Physical Contact
Even if your ex says 'lets do it one last time' don't fall in the trap. That may increase the attachment between both of you. Also, what if your ex blackmails you by taking your intimate pictures?
Don't Feel Guilty
Showing compassion or empathy doesn't mean you need to feel guilty. If you show that side of yours then your ex may utter words that may melt your heart and make you go back.
Avoid Some Places
For some time, avoid certain places where you may bump into your ex. Seeing each other may make things worse.
Keep Your Partner In The Loop
Tell your new partner and keep things transparent. Also, take his or her suggestions in getting rid of a clinging ex.
