Exes are not always part of the past, sometimes they continue to linger around and that's because we have a hard time letting go. This tends to happen, especially when it comes to sex. There are several reasons why we want to have sex with the ex, here are some.
1. You want closure
Many people want answers after a break up: why did it happen? what went wrong? was it me? Point is, some people need closure after a breakup. Meeting with your ex to "talk about it" can sometimes result in sex.
2. It only makes the breakup harder
Having sex with your ex only makes the breakup harder, especially if ended a long-term relationship. Seeing them, looking for them, wanting to know about them, can spark the desire to sleep with them again and this is not healthy in any way.
3. You feel alone
You felt comfortable with your ex. You know them more than anyone in the world. Creating new relationships always takes time and can be very stressful. Getting to know someone new is not achieved from one day to the next.
An ex is an "old acquaintance", to name them in some way, and it is often easier to return to old relationships and have sex because it takes less effort. Keep in mind that this, while it may alleviate that feeling for a short time, only delays the heartbreak and, sooner or later, you'll be broken up for good.
4. You believe they'll be back
Unfortunately, many people fall into the error of believing that they will return to their ex by having sex after splitting. This almost never happens or, if it happens, it will not end well for either of them.
