7 Things To Consider Before Getting Coffee With An Ex
Skip navigation! Story from Sex. Judy Kim and Lily di Costanzo. My friends and I spend more time than I'd like to admit discussing our past relationships. And by discussing, I mean pondering over, occasionally pining for, and always, without exception lightly stalking our exes across various social media platforms. No one is proud of it, but sometimes all the unanswered questions that follow a breakup are hard to shake. That's why I'd like to talk about my brave friend Judy.
She'll scale a fence around a private beach and casually write down her number on a napkin to be delivered to her bartender. I've genuinely never seen her flustered — she's just so, so cool. But, during a particularly moony round of sulking on my part , Judy suggested we pick up the phone and dump all of our post-breakup questions on our exes, instead of each other.
The challenge was born. Being far too scared to do it myself, however, I dared Judy to have dinner with her former boyfriend of about nine months and ask him 29 of the most candid, no-holds-barred questions she could think of. Fair warning: It just might inspire you to schedule your own recon mission. Judy: "What initially attracted you to me?
James: "You had a mysterious and standoffish presence. I couldn't tell what you thought of me, and I wanted to know more. Judy: "What are three things you think we have in common in this moment? James: "We both haven't seen each other since March We're both wondering about how the other feels in this moment. Judy: "Can you pick an appetizer off the menu for me? James: "They're all super different.
Do you want the crepe? With roasted mushroom sweet pea puree? Judy: "What was your least favorite memory with me? James: "The day I said 'I guess that's it' over the phone. Technically, the day we called it quits.
Judy: "How did we break up? James: "I was waiting to get picked up for a company ski trip. We talked on the phone, and the gist of it was that my heart wasn't in it. I think I was just tired. Judy: "Would you say you broke up with me? James: "I don't remember exactly. I just remember being really sad.
It was one of those conversations that teetered between whether to invest more and try to fix it or call it quits. We didn't try to fix it.
Judy: "If you could change one thing about our relationship, what would it be? James: "I wish I could have been more communicative. And for you, I think you weren't having a great time. You were having a hard time with work and that's tough on a relationship.
Judy: "Do you think you've changed from our relationship? In a better or worse way? James: "I don't think people change. I do think that after each relationship you're better at accommodating the needs of your next partner, though.
Judy: "What do you think was the most intimate moment in our relationship? James: [Laughs] "Buying poppers from the sex shop near your place.
They obviously went unused but that doesn't diminish the intimacy at all Okay, also, the weekend my grandmother died you came out to my parents' house with me. I didn't tell you that at the time — we didn't really know each other all that well yet. But I liked having you there. Judy: "What do you think we lacked in our sex life? James: "We could have used more of it. Judy: "Favorite sex sesh? James: "My parents' house that weekend in May. We had sex three or four times in a row.
James: "Well, when you put it that way Judy: "What is your favorite thing about me, physically? James: "I really liked how I could just wrap my arms entirely around you when we were hugging. Like if I squeezed you hard enough I could consume you entirely. Judy: "How are you feeling right now? James: "I feel fine. I don't want to be here. Want to come with me? To my house? Judy: "No! Not at all! James: "Okay. Too bad for me, I guess.
Judy: "Who would you say put more effort into our relationship? But I think I brought an unwavering foundation to the relationship. Judy: "Did you see yourself falling in love with me? James: "Probably.
I certainly cared enough about you to feel that way someday. Judy: "Is there any part of you that wants to try dating again?
James: "There is always some part of me that longs for you. Judy: "Is what you're looking for in a girlfriend different now that we've dated? If anything, dating you has probably broadened my 'type. I like that about you. Judy: "Describe your dream girl. James: "Smart, well-spoken, likes to have long, drawn-out conversations about things and maybe watch a Ted Talk or two. Also, someone I can run with. Judy: What qualities do you seek most in a relationship? James: "Laid back and calm with a little crazy mixed in.
Judy: "Do you think I'm crazy? Did you tell your friends that I'm crazy? James: "No. Judy: "I think that you're lying. James: "I didn't say you were crazy. I said 'bananas.
Judy: "Do your parents know about me? James: "Dad, yes. Mom, not sure. I don't like to talk to her about women anymore.
Judy: "Do you think there's anything we could have done to save us from breaking up? Or was it inevitable because of who we are? James: "I'm not sure — maybe a different time or a different place. Judy: " Would you say I put a lot of pressure on you? James: "Yes.
You wanted me to be more communicative than I had ever been or was able to be. Judy: "I feel like I did the right thing when I broke up with you.

For many people this is the most important step post-breakup when trying to get back together. Where should you go? How do you put together the perfect date?
And if the answer is yes, you may want to lower your expectations of the meetup and postpone it for a few months.
