I Found Out My Ex-Boyfriend Will Be Living in The Same Building. Should I Sign a No Contact Form?
Published: August 16, 2021
I'm a 19y/o female, almost 20, and I'm moving back to college. I found out my ex boyfriend and I are very close together in the same building. We had a really sour break up and even though we are trying to still be friends, it's obvious that he doesn't want that and doesn't really care how I feel about it. He thinks since we're close, we may be able to get back together or continue our sexual relations. I made the decision (with influence from family and friends) to move buildings. My question is that now that the school knows that there is a potential for there to be a problem, there is an option to have a no contact form put into place where we can't have communication with each other. My mother thinks I should have that done, but I'm concerned that would make any problem significantly worse and that it would be better to just move into the new room and continue as normal, allowing things to blow over on their own. What concerns me is that campus is very small and regardless of whether there is a no contact we will have to see each other, and I'm concerned it will cause issues that didn't need to happen. Should I sign the forms, or should I forgo the form, and allow things to work themselves out? If I don't sign the no contact, the school will still know that there is a potential for there to be an issue.

Dear I Found Out My Ex-Boyfriend Will Be Living in The Same Building. Should I Sign a No Contact Form?,
TeenHealthFX is sorry to hear about what you are going through. It sounds like it is a very difficult decision to make. We are glad that you talked to your parents and friends about what is going on. Moving building was a great idea and could hopefully reduce the chances of you seeing each other. Since the school is aware of the situation perhaps you can do the no contact form at a later date if you find the issue is still continuing. Unfortunately, we cannot tell you what to do, but we do encourage you to think it through and discuss with other trusted adults or friends to see what their point of view is. Good luck!
