Most Helpful Girl
You actually have your "EX" who still Marks his X in his own softie spot here, dear, Under your thumb. Many times when two people split, that's IT... Just friends maybe with or without benefits, hard to get back to the Way we were.
Take it slow with Joe until you Know that it's Birds of a feather who still stick together in the nest and not outside... The call of the wild where he wants you Today and tomorrow no Say.
Good luck. xx
