my ex became very ill and I asked him to stay with me while he recovered. He is now getting better ,I know he wants to re kindle a relationship but I only want friendship but he wants initmacy and is persistant. How do I tell him no without hurting his manhood and should I ask he to leave? ..

Good Afternoon,


No matter what you say a person chooses to felt hurt or not. How you say it is more important. Try to be sensitive to him yet firm in your decision. If you feel guilt or pity he may not be able to move forward and both of you will feel stuck. Try to be honest with him and explain your reasons for wanting to break off the relationship.
