You weren't raised Catholic by any chance, were you?
Well that just seems way to simple
It makes sense though, just not the way a lot of people think. I guess I feel
that if I asked my GF to do that then she would think I was not over my ex (which is true) and put her in a weird spot. If I asked my ex to do that that I would be rubbing the new relationship in her face making her hurt more.
The key to that is in red. So this apparently is my issue, but there has to be some truth to it. Usually when a relationship is over it is over unless there is something like kids involved which there is not.
I was not raised under any religion. Just raised to be a good person, not to intentionally hurt people, be free and proud of who you are.
