My relationship ended because he is three years younger than me and has not had his friend/partying/live life period yet. We are not friends but we still do care about each other and respect each other. None of us believe that couples who break up can get back together again, but in our situation, we both hope for that and have told each other that. Is it best to cut off completely, or to have low-frequency respectful contact from now?
It is best you don't contact each other until each one of you has healed and recovered from the breakup/divorce and has moved on. Until then, you have to cease any contact with him. When you keep in contact, you'll be reminded of the relationship, will wish the relationship shouldn't have broken up, you'll be thinking about him and in the process the thoughts and the longing will further deepen the wound that hasn't healed.
