6. Because it was really, truly over.
“A year after my ex and I mutually broke up, we were having sex. We did everything we used to do, but we knew it would be the last time. I broke up into tears. It was pretty obvious from my side—I have always been touchy with emotional stuff. He asked me for the reason behind my tears, but I was silent. He asked again, and I kept on with my closed lips. He then understood my silence and broke into tears himself.” —Anukriti S.
