My best friend dating my ex boyfriend
My boyfriend of 8 months is still friends with his ex, whom he was with for five years. I understand that he has love and respect for her as a person and that I should be respectful of his past and their relationship. In the beginning of our relationship he spoke with her almost every day by phone (she lives three hours away). If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at New readers, welcome to Dear Wendy, a relationship advice blog. Plus, she texts and calls late–sometimes after p.m., and that pisses me off because I feel they both aren’t respecting our relationship. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram. He calls her at work and they talk for about an hour. He has talked to her in front of me, but they usually talk when I’m not home. But I’m still hurt because I feel like boundaries aren’t being respected. And there’s a reason he can’t let go of her, and there’s a reason you feel like the bond you have with him isn’t as strong as the one he has with his ex. And he probably doesn’t care about you as much as he cares about her. Why did I feel like he cared more about her than me? You can read about me here, peruse the archives here and read popular posts here. I do trust him…it’s just I’m scared — of their bond, their connection, that emotional support they still have. At first he said they would only talk once in a while, but after the first day they have been talking two to three times a week. That said, your concerns are totally valid and your boyfriend is being disrespectful of you and your relationship by keeping up the constant communication with his ex. If they were, why couldn’t he stop talking to her all the time?
