The data varies , but numerous surveys point to the fact that most of us don’t stay friends with our exes post-breakup. Once something is over, it can be painful to have constant reminders of what used to be. For some of us, the remaining digital and emotional ties only encourage our most obsessive, Facebook-stalking behaviors. And yet, for those navigating the murky waters of staying in touch with an ex, it’s actually a great sign. Those who can stay friends with a former love are the most mature, satisfied partners among us — and the ones coming from romances that were built on real friendship. Giphy Friends above all else: The basis of the romantic relationship makes a huge difference as to whether you can stay friends. If you’re surreptitiously texting your ex under the table to avoid your friends’ admonishing looks, chances are the connection is an unhealthy one. Above the table, and you’re probably being more honest about why you really want to keep your ex around — and your friends will totally approve.
Being My Husband’s Second Wife
No serious money problems, no cheating, no nothing that any marriage should end over. Anyway, when it was done I ended it. She kept her word and we did it uncontested with no alimony and the only shared asset was me co-signed on her car ’00 miata, about 8k owed. I kept my car, house, the works– bought the house in May after we’d been separated a month. We’ve remained friends, although since the divorce was final we’ve only talked probably times.
My boyfriend is still in close contact with his most recent ex in a way which is troubling me. I know he has remained close to a few of his ex’s which doesn’t concern me at all (he has the right to be friends with anyone) but the most recent ex is still extremely needy.
It was an arranged marriage. We live with my parents. Recently others in the family eavesdropped on us and unfortunately managed to listen in on some of our private conversations regarding this issue, i. This was deeply humiliating and painful for both of us. My father has recently taunted her with this overheard info first time in three years. Whenever I ask her anything about this she gives vague replies, urging me to move on and look at the future instead of the past. She vehemently opposed this and refused to give away even the names of her classmates.
This has made her very nervous and disturbed. In spite of what all this might suggest, I love her. That kind of probing is guaranteed to make any relationship worse. So the middle ground here is to know only as much as is necessary, and in this case you have a right to demand that information from your wife. What you need to know about sex before marriage Have an open discussion with her.
Tell her first that you love her as she is, and that you have realized that finding out intricate details about her past life is not going to help your relationship.
When you should (and shouldn’t) stay friends with an ex
When I heard about the Ashley Madison security breach last week, the first thing I did was check out everyone who signed up in my neighborhood. And then there was my wife of 19 years. Or soon-to-be ex-wife, I should say. Not only was I reminded of the torture of discovering that my life partner, now 48, was cheating on a site that flat-out condoned extramarital affairs, but suddenly I could read the profiles my wife, who used the pseudonym Sophia, created during her two stints on Ashley Madison.

An Open Letter to My Now Ex-Wife

The Dating Nerd is a shadowy figure whose whereabouts and identifying details remain unknown. What we do know is that he is really, really good at dating. He’s been on more dates than you can shake a lengthy bar tab at, and he’s here to help the average guy step his dating game up a notch — or several. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been hanging out with a close friend’s ex-girlfriend, platonically, after we ran into each other at Starbucks.
We have a real connection. I can’t stop thinking about her. I’m kind of obsessed. And I think she wants to take it to the next level, too. The problem is, my friend had a deep relationship with this girl, and I think he’s still kind of in love with her. So what do I do here? Can I get away with dating my friend’s ex? Will he be able to handle this? Which is that people never really get over significant romantic relationships.
I don’t mean that you can never be happy again after breaking up with someone.
Real life story: My husband let my boyfriend move in
I entered the relationship with my husband with positive preconceived notions of his ex based on what I had seen growing up in my own family; My mom and stepmom getting along fabulously. So my confusion began early on when I expected her to treat me neutrally or better — not like the enemy. It was as if, before ever meeting me, her mind created this horrible person and she placed that image, like a mask, onto me. Years later it would become obvious that nothing I could ever do or say would change her image of me.
Protect yourself at all costs Looking back, the one thing I wish I would have done differently was completely deny her access to me.
A few years ago, a friend of mine was going through a long divorce and she said….. The person has to do it on their own, and on their own timetable. Sure, there are things you can do to TRY to get over your ex—like see a therapist, engage in a new hobby, find faith, exercise, start volunteering, focus on career, etc. YOU are the one deciding when you can accept it and move on. No one else can do that for you. But instead of listing them, I am going to offer: The victim mentality is poisonous.
While I think everyone going through a divorce deserves an amount of time to feel sorry for themselves, that time needs to be short lived. Anger will destroy you. It will prevent you from ever moving on in a real way, or with any productivity. Anger is a complete waste of energy.

35 Signs The Girl You’re Dating Is A Whore. Oscar Zach August 2, Girls; Comments. Oscar Zach. I’ve never been dumped lol and I’m still friends with my ex’s. And for being used,that’s a mutual thing since they would be used as well. “I wish I had beaten my Russian ex-wife regularly.”.
People can part amicably, they can remain friends — without any possibility of reconciliation. In fact, maintaining a positive relationship with an ex is imperative when children are involved. If exes with kids can do it, why can’t — and shouldn’t — the young and the childless, too? So I’m recovering from a bad relationship and by luck, I just find someone new who is nurturing me to have good self-esteem and a good mindset and loves me and I love it.
It’s more than what I could possibly ask for in life. Yet, he happens to have a past which worries me because: He has this ex who he went out for 6 years who happens to love to say a lot of subliminal messages on Facebook. He said her name in bed right after he had proposed to me. He kept the conversation he had with her on Facebook Yes, I snooped 4.
He still had her number on his phone and didn’t delete it until after I told him to do it. He continuously keeps on saying that it was an accident, it’s all in the past, that she means nothing to him. Yet, I can’t seem to get over it.
My Ex Is My Best Friend. And I Was Man of Honor at Her Wedding
She came up pregnant at the time of the affair with our 4th child. I don’t want to go too far into it because it’s a really long story filled with bullshit but basically I stayed with her through the pregnancy to help out because I just thought it seemed like the right thing to do. We tried counseling but she was still talking to the ex and continued to lie about the relationship. Looking back I’m still not sure what all exactly happened but I’ve processed it and moved on.
Shortly after our last daughter was born we now have 4 all mine and her’s I couldn’t take it anymore and left.
Best friend that knew i told my dilemma, the fourth grade. Hile wife. 12 % satisfaction guaranteed. 25 signs your new relationship with his ex dropped off for over .
I always thought he might still have feelings for her because when, we went out, he always had plenty of time for her. She even found out about things before I did, so they were talking on the phone. She cheated on him more than once!! I have never looked through his drawers, etc. Anyway, while looking for a picture on his laptop I came across pictures of him and her from a previous holiday. He knew I was looking on his laptop. Roll on maybe nearly a year together about 2 and half years at this stage and we were both looking at pictures on his laptop, I was just clicking in different folders and he was telling me where certain pictures were taken.
I asked him why he still had pictures together? He said he never got around to deleting them. So, a few weeks later I needed my pictures off his laptop and I noticed the folder with their pictures in it. He now has it as a compressed folder. Theres also a folder with their last holiday, too, which I saw this morning. He said no but to me he was not too convincing. He did say, the other day, that he was sorry he got married.
