Most Helpful Girl
Just because two people Breakup doesn't mean they can't and don't Makeup and that it's Goodbye, my love forever. And with you rown "EX" who still Marks an X in her own softie spot here, dear, there may be motive in mind down this fine line , where she is asking For... Hit each other up from time to time.
You both had a 'Relationship for almost 2 years' and in This, you found out things were not always so cozy and koshore. Now that it is over, it is dealing with more raw deals on wheels, such as LDR, her 'bipolar attitude, and Other things on the love list that brings you both to 'Different' levels in time.
I believe that if you kept in contact, she probably wouldn't change, be harping and hopping on your heart strings More in store, and maybe drive you alone to drink because of the distance.
Tell her you think it best for Now to move on and both of you get settled in to the idea of Not being in any sort of relationship, and when you are back on track, you will send her a text, from time to time.
If she has a hissy fit, don't give in, being an enabler. That part of your life is Over like Rover, and Now... You are not in the doghouse with her anymore. It's not that an "EX" is this enemy, but she did go barking up the wrong tree.
Good luck. xx1
