Q Dear Auntie Pearl, I did such a stupid thing and got bymekaar with my ex last weekend.
He broke up with me just a bit more than a year ago.
We were chatting since he broke up with me.
Then sometimes he invites me for a braai or a drink and then I said yes last weekend and one thing led to another and we ended up in bed.
It was stupid I know, we had too much dop and he left so early that we didn’t even talk about it.
Now he keeps phoning and messaging me on WhatsApp.
What should I do? Maybe we should get back together, but I don’t know.
A You see, SC, nothing good ever comes from too much dop.
How many times does one have to preach about the dangers of too much drink, meisie!
You don’t need Auntie to tell you what a dom gedagte it was to jump into bed with your ex.
Now SC, backsliding to hook up with an ex is actually not that uncommon.
You two will always have that little something between you and daai’s gevaarlik, literally, because when the dop is popping it’s easy to get all nostalgic about the good times.
But don’t skeem it’s a sign you two should get back together …There was a reason you two broke up!
And your ex had you for a one night stand and then left the next morning, without talking to you.
Yoh, a real man maak mos nie so nie.
Don’t let him sweet talk you into another arrige relationship that is doomed before the start.
You may think he’s oulik because you know him and he seems familiar, but you have to move forward in life SC (and that includes your love life), not backward.
