Sex With The Ex

Well, the title says it all. I had been on and off with this girl for about the last 5 years and all throughout college. When we initally broke up, I was soul crushed. Six months later, we were back together but then broke up again. We've probably broken up 4-5 separate times. After the last time we broke up, I had blocked her phone number, her aol instant messenger, facebook, all that good stuff. A few months down the road, she emails me (forgot to block that) asking if I wanted to hang out. Like a crack addict (if crack were like my ex gf), I said "yeah sure." One thing led to another and we ended up having sex.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I think I'm getting attached again. Should I cut everything off like I had been doing? After she went home that night, I went out with some friends and ended up meeting a really cute girl who I think I might be interested in. We exchanged numbers, a little kiss and planned to hang out some time in the near future. The problem is I think I still have very strong feelings for my ex. I'm not really the type of person to keep each on the side or anything like that. It's really not fair, and I've been on the losing end before. Should I tell my ex that we need to stop talking and hanging out, and then pursue something with the new girl? Or should I walk down the same road again, the same uncertain road with a girl who's giving me much love but also much heartache?

Thanks for reading
