FI’s ex (SS’s mom) just sent me a text asking if I wanted to go to a bridal expo with her. She’s not getting married or even seeing anyone, she wants to go for me. I mean, I appreciate the gesture and I’m glad we all get along well for SS’s sake, but that’s weird right?!

Very weird, but a good sign to me.

Weird, maybe, but whatever works for your family! Better than her being bitter or angry

@Laurenplusalex: yeah definitely!
That’s the thing..she was really, really awful for a good 3.5 years and then last year she met someone and she just switched. She stopped leaving me crazy voicemails, stopped sending me hatemail, etc and all of a sudden she was like my best friend. FI and I were both really shocked but I decided it was best for everyone to smile and go along with it but I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop. I respect her as a mother, I like that we can talk and laugh but I don’t trust her. I guess she sees us as being much closer than I do. Which I guess is good?

@Jellybones: Yeah in that case I’d go with her. Suck it up and play nice. As long as you don’t forget her former behavior and thus never confide in her any drama between you and FI etc.
Definitely weird though….

Weird but whatever. I would go if I were you.
I wish my ex (my daughter’s ather) would even INTRODUCE me to his girlfriend. It’s so much better for the children involved if everyone gets along.

If I am understanding correctly (sorry, I don’t know what SS means), you are saying that your man’s ex partner would like to attend a wedding expo with you? If that is the case, I would find that terribly weird and uncomfortable. It wouldn’t work for me because I have no interest in being around my man’s exes, but if you are cool with it than why not.

@MrsPanda99: I think SS is stepson, so they have to get along for the kids sake.
It is a little weird, I’d be gracious and make up a good excuse why you can’t go. I wouldn’t get too close but it is nice that she’s not being a crazy person anymore!

@SeaTurtle88: I wouldn’t put myself in an awkward position for anyone, let alone someone else’s kid 😛 This is why I’d never date or marry someone with kids but I sure as hell wouldn’t hang out with their exes either way.
I suppose a lot of folks are more gracious than me. Kudos 😀
