How do I tell someone I was "friends with benefits" with to piss off? I was fucking a girl for a few months but she decided to get back with her ex. I don't really care but she still messages all the time and I'm just not into it. I don't want to be mean but I'm sick of pretending to care about all the bullshit she talks to me about. Most of the time it's just about her ex or she's just being a cunt. Which makes her a drag to talk to. I've also known her for a great many years so it's difficult to just cut all ties. If anyone can offer any guidance/advice, it'd be greatly appreciated.
Let me just rearrange and edit your original post, and show how what you just said, is what you need to tell her.
I was fucking you for a few months but you decided to get back with your ex. I don't really care but you still messages all the time and I'm just not into it. I don't want to be mean but I'm uncomfortable with being so close given our past and present experiences. I've known you for a great many years so it feels wrong to just cut all ties, but I need to put a lot more distance between us.
Respectful, leaves friendship open for the future, shows you aren't a twat.
I've figured as much
Don't want to act needy. It's too cringey for me to handle.
She used to be really fun to talk to before she got back with her ex. Now she's just really cunty about everything. But she's always talking to me first. I don't think she likes me. Unless she wants to see if I'll fight for her love. Which I won't.
I've come to that conclusion as well.
Seems like a very viable route to take. Thanks mate.
