    Me and my ex split up nearly a year ago on reasonably good terms cause he didn't want to do long distance (going to be in different countries). We're both back home now for good and he's saying he wants to give things another shot but I don't know what to do.
    I thought it was over him but now we're back home I've been thinking about him a lot and I'm definitely not over him. I miss being in a relationship with him and the romantic side of things but I can't imagine having sex with him- I can't imagine it exciting me as much.
    Maybe things would be different in the actual moment but I don't know whether to risk giving things another go and then it not working out and going through heartbreak again. or just to keep moving forward and hope one day I'll get over him

    Go for it, no harm on giving it a go, if things don’t work out and your both good people then you’ll still be on good terms.

    At the end of the day you can always give things another go, but just remember an ex is an ex for a reason

    If you both still have feelings for each other, why not meet up for a date and discuss things? The time is right, you just need to see if the connection is still there.

    So your not sexually attracted to him?
    How's that a relationship?

    Well I guess cause it's been so long now and I've had to change my perception of him. I think it would feel strange to be in that vulnerable position of being naked and intimate again.
