Interesting situation to watch, personally, as I recently left Aquarius ex because she was still remaining consistent contact and continually asking for help from ex of 3 years, despite my feelings around it. It was irresolvable. Having feelings of being used, but know that she is too short-sighted -or- too selfish to make a change. My new approach to balancing the imbalance between us: maintaining a friendship with her as I continue my search for love. I have her over, here and there, to catch up and talk, never make physical contact, sit down in different chairs. I don't think it phases her too much, though I can see that slight pain in her eyes. But the goal isn't to get the one-up on anyone, it's to establish equilibrium. I'm flirting with a Leo these days, woke up to her this morning. I dropped the romantic longing and the hope of a relationship nearly two months ago when I broke up with the Aquarius. She says she understands that we can't work out, but hopes to be a "positive role" in my life. We'll see. She's the Oprah of friendships; she hands the same kind out to everyone. And in a Utopia, I could see the working out. But what looks good on paper sometimes doesn't work well in life. Still care about her and enjoy her presence, so friendship works out in the end.
