When is the end really 'the end'?
« on: Nov 22, 2007, 12:16:45 AM »
How do you know for sure that a relationship is over?
Is it when you stop loving her? What if you still do?
Is it when sex dies out? What if sex is still great?
Is it when...

When she's changed all her numbers and your doorstep seranade is cut short by a call from our friends in uniform .. although if you give it a week or so she might come round, maybe send flowers?

When the red roses you sent her come back as just stems with all the heads cut off and you see an advertisement for your pet cat in the pet's section of gumtree.

Who knows. 

Its probably healthier however if you decide yourself rather than torment yourself with the idea that you may get her back. 
You may be wondering what a map of the trade winds of the North Atlantic is doing on page 134 of a book entitled Is Sex Necessary? In our opinion a map of the trade winds is equally useful in understanding women as a cross section of the female anatomy -James Thurber

So if you keep having sex with them, are they still exes? If so, how do you define that relationship?

And she saw that she looked like the Goddess Mothers she had just seen. ...........She left the museum juicy, full and ripe with possibilities.

that's a good question. i think they usually are exes in as much as she's said "i don't want to be with you anymore, can we be friends?" but then we've found ourselves in a situation where we end up having sex. for example, i went to a wedding in doncaster with a woman who was definitely my ex but we ended up having quite a lot of sex. but we were definitely exes.

This is absolutely definitive for me.
Having said that, it's not irrevocable.

Soooooo true.

That and when you stop finding yourself able to make excuses for all her faults.

True!
One I noticed years ago which really scared me was how I cringed whenever she touched me.  You know it's over when that happens!

When the thought of her finding someone else causes relief not heartache.
