When should I contact an ex-girlfriend who Ive had a physical relationship

This answer was rated:

When should I contact an ex-girlfriend who I've had a physical relationship with for over 4 years who left me for someone else knowing I'd never leave my current 29 year relationship with someone I don't live with ? I am not married.
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Dear friend,

Your former girlfriend saw that the relationship she had with you could never blossom as she wished, and so she finally moved on. Why do you want to burst back into her life now, when she has left you and has a new relationship?

I think that if you wish to supplement your present relationship of 29 years you might consider someone else. You can contact this one again, but it will probably cause more pain than pleasure.

In my opinion, I think you should not contact her again.

Best wishes,
