You have a nice thing without the 'fling' it would seem right now. However, I am not this little mouse in your back pocket so don't know if it Includes a Friends package With... Benefits or not.
If it Doesn't, let's say, then go easy with That little goodie With being a friend indeed, many times in 'Need' also is part of the care package and it gets real cozy and comfy when your Ex is contented and doesn't want to have to feel hooked at the hip As... The way we were.

Good luck. xx
