    @Milan21xx:  Nope.  I have a few exes and I’m only in contact with guys that I dated fleetingly, but none of the serious ones.

    @Milan21xx:  Yes, but because we’ve both moved on from the relationship and are now good friends.

    In your situation, I would especially not be in contact with the ex. What he’s saying to you is inappropriate and disrespectful of the relationship you have with your SO. It sounds like he isn’t ready to be friends with you yet.

    change your number…sersiously…it’s what I did. Not necessarily because he kept texting me, but because I’m really really happy with my current relationship. His interference has messed with past relationships, too. Ex drama has it’s place…and it’s in the past.

    Yes, but I don’t initiate it. I have one ex that will come out of the blue and send me a text, wanting to know how I am, am I still engaged, that he still loved me and was stupid for letting me go (he never said he loved me while we were together). After a few replies back, he goes away for a few months and it happens again, lol. Meanwhile, his number is deleted from my contacts and I have to ask who is texting me! Oy…it’s been over 8 months now, hopefully he lost my my number.

    @Milan21xx:  I would just ignore it, he’ll get the hint.  But, if he continues past ignoring it and it isn’t a hassle to change it, then that might be a solution.  Although, those persistent men find a way to contact (email, fb, etc).  So annoying.

    My ex and I left on a mutual breakup. We still talk from time to time (He’s in my guild on Guild wars and I occasionally log on), but we don’t talk regularly.

    I’m in touch with 3.  

    1 is a really good friend as was really supportive through some rough times even after we stopped seeing each other.

    2 is a jerk and have no idea why we’re still in touch, it was innocent but when we did meet up he made a move, we’re only in touch of FB now (though we’re not friends just do the odd email, normally of an article we’ve read or something)

    3 I say we’re still in touch, but I haven’t heard from him in while pretty much since his new girlfriend arrived on the scene.  He was my first love and every time we speak he drives me up the wall anyway so it’s no great loss.  Still in touch with his mum, love her!

    @Milan21xx: In my opinion, a renewed friendship with the ex isn’t worth your FI’s discomfort. You haven’t talked to him in months anyway.

    @Milan21xx: Not with my most recent EX, he’s an idiot. My ex prior to him I do but it’s more like a hey how you’ve been thing (through facebook).

    As for your ex I think you should just ignore his ass and let your FI know what your ex is doing (if he doesn’t already know)

    I’m good friends with one ex. We dated on and off in high school and broke up very amicably and mutually (we went to different colleges and didn’t want to be long-distance/wanted the full college experience). Every time we came back to our hometown for holidays and whatnot we made it a point to catch up, and we live in the same city now and still hang out. There are absolutely zero feelings between us anymore and my SO is totally okay with us hanging out (and has hung out with us too).

    However, my college exes are all toxic and I stay far, far away.

    I stay in contact with one ex. The breakup was not mutual, but he’s a great guy and took it well, got over it quickly. I think it helps that he went away for a few years afterwards – I wrote him occasionally in the spirit of friendship, but when he came back all of our emotions had boiled over. He’s dating one of my old friends now and I’m simply ecstatic for them. He is a great guy, just not for me, and my fiance understands that I don’t have any attraction to him.

    Of my other exes, one is 26 and going on his 10th year working the same bottom-rung job at McDonalds, another is in prison for distributing drugs to minors, another cheated on me in a most despicable way. And the last one is just a real case – I could go on for hours about his issues concerning me, but it sufficeth me to say that he thought we were soulmates and didn’t take the breakup too well. Needless to say, those exes are definitely out and gone from my life!
