Why is it so hard to get over an ex? I dated my ex for 1.5 years we broke up nearly 11 months ago and I'm still not fully over him! It's my own fault because I've allowed him to still be apart of my life (we have mutual friends so see him occasionally) PLUS we slept together a month ago and were casually dating and considering getting back together 2/3 weeks ago. But after we decided to just stay friends it has been particularly hard and I don't know what to do. I know I need to cut him from my life to be able to fully move on but I don't know how to do that without cutting my friends out of the picture, I also don't know if I'm 'ready' to completely cut him from my life even though I know he's no good for me at least for now. What do I do?
