Dear cowboy, well, we can't really tell you how to react to your cowgirl. OK, she has asked for space and time to work out personal issues she has, and to remain a friend of yours. Can't you accept that outcome ? What different do you want, rom what she has sugegsted ? If she wants to be free to go ou with other people, presumably you would be similarly free. If you are just pals and no longer in a close and committed relationship ; why would she know about any other relationships you now choose to form ( or otherwise ) --- so how would she react to them, and how would you react to her reactions to them ? Why are they still part of the agenda in your discussions ?
