Divorce or breakups are difficult for most people. It’s apparently one of the most traumatic events a person can go through. Yet for others, it’s an explosion of freedom, an opportunity to reset life and move again. But what if you bump with your ex in a bar, grab a few drinks together and later decides to sleep with him or her?
It appears like there’s one piece of post-heartbreak opinion that’s more popular than any other: ‘whatever you do, don’t sleep with your ex!’ People who give this advice give it with a good intention. But in reality, it may not be bad as one may think. According to new research conducted by Wayne State University, sleeping with your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend can actually not be a bad idea. In fact, it can be a good idea to cherish those magical moments and engage with long conversations and fulfill each other’s deprived sexual needs.
It’s astonishing how the mind soothes and the world looks like a better place after sex. That feeling of delight that closeness produces is due to the satisfaction one gets. Naturally, sex is crack for your brain. For that brief period after sex, anything will seem great. You’ll forget the midnight arguments or any other complexity when both of you were together.
This is not to imply that having sex with ex-partner is always a bad idea or that it can have negative outcomes. People’s encounters while sleeping with an ex may vary due to their own individual personalities and relationship memories, which indicates it’s quite likely that some people may benefit more than others.
For both the partners, the thought of losing a long-term connection and being alone can be scary as hell. Usually, the affection with your companion is still going to be strong in the early steps of divorce or separation, so letting go of that is going to be strangely difficult. You’ll have much-shared memoir and cognition. Assuming you can just turn your back on that and move on overnight is absurd. Which is why, if your ex calls, it’s easy to give in and go running to the security of someone who knows you.
