    My ex and I share common interests and friends, so we do keep in touch through Facebook. He’s also getting married, so we sometimes talk weddings. I’d say we communicate maybe once a week, give or take whatever’s going on at the time. But, we mostly talk weddings and tattoos…

    There’s really only one of my ex’s that I talk to. It took me some time to get to a place where I wanted to be friends with him, but I’m glad we are now! He and his (now) wife came to our wedding, and we went to theirs in October. We love having dinner with them and hanging out. I missed his friendship, and I adore his wife, so it’s win/win all around! Darling Husband and my ex get along really well too which both of us wives love. It’s sort of a funny dynamic because my ex’s wife and I will joke about things he does, but it’s a good sense of comraderie too πŸ™‚  They’re honestly some of my favourite people to hang out with.

    We also went to DH’s ex’s wedding in the summer. She and her husband are really sweet, but I’d say I have less in common with them. We put DH’s and my ex and their respective partners at the same table at our wedding which was pretty funny. They all got along really well πŸ™‚

    He doesn’t talk to any of his ex’es, but my most recent (and the only serious one) is our good friend’s brother so we sometimes see him.  He is also fb friends with the hubs, but the hubs and I never communicate on fb (although sometimes i will put cute and lovey things on there so the ex can see them πŸ˜‰ ).

    @MrsSl82be: It took me a long time to get there, but I’m really glad I did and that we renewed the friendship. PLUS I can’t say enough how much I adore his wife which is awesome. It was funny, they bought a new house last week, and one was emailing me and the other was FB PM-ing me at the same time to tell me. So cute.

    My other “major” ex. Ugh. I never want to see his face again, LOL! No adult feelings there πŸ˜‰

    I am at least casual friends with all of my ex’s except one.  Some I chat with on FB, some we sometimes run into at bars, and one I call and talk to regularly.

    I had a high school/early college boyfriend that I was with for 5 years.  We broke up 10 years ago (when I was 20), because I could tell we were really going different places with our lives.  Even at the time I broke up with him, I thought the world of him – he’s a sweet, smart, stand-up guy.  At first he couldn’t be friends, but after 6 months or so we started talking again. We stayed friends for several years, although we live 2000 miles away.

    Eventually we each started dating our current partners.  Once he got more serious with his now-wife, contact dropped off a bit.  Now we only email a couple of times a year, but I have such fond feelings for him and I wish him a great life.

    I text or IM with a couple of my exes… but it only happens like, 1-2 times a year, max?  They’re mostly about random things and the text or IM convos are never very lengthy.

    I am civil with a few of mine, but there is one in particular I really hope I never hear from again.

    My exes and I haven’t stayed in touch, really. One was because of hard feelings. The other I stayed friends with for a bit in college but we’ve gone separate ways.

    Can we say losers? All my exes (that I considered even semi serious as opposed to flirty relationships) are losers.   Yes, I do mean that word. They currently have no jobs or dead-end jobs, live with mom and have been arrested- a few times.

    So I have nothing in common with them and I dont communicate with them.  MYFH’s ex we sometimes see because of a mutual friend and we are both friends with on facebook.  Its one of those keep friends close and enemies closer.  If she werent and ex I would be friends with her, but recently I found out she still calls his mom to talk and his sisters to hang out! I think that is really really inapprpriate. I also found out that they broke up because FH said he didnt ever want to get married.  So she left. It is probably killing her that we are getting married. Looks like he just hadnt met the right girl at that point.

    I do but one was my best friend before I got me emotions confused and thought I had romantic feelings for him. One was my first love and lives in another country and we still keep in touch because even though I am madly in love with Fiance, I do still care about him and think of his as a really good friend. And the last we keep in touch but don’t normally talk. If we see eachother or happen to have something to say we will talk but we don’t usually go out of our way. Mr. Shef knows all this and it doesn’t bother him one bit. Infact we are really hoping that the ex bf/ best friend will come to the wedding but we doubt he will because he still has a tough time w/ Fiance.

    I only have one ex, and I haven’t talked to him since about 2 years ago. I told him that I didn’t think it was a good idea for us to be in contact anymore unless he could be okay with us only being friends. I had broken up with him earlier in the year, and we had started hanging out again here and there, and I just couldn’t do it anymore. No, we were not dating, just wanted to make that clear. It was honestly just after I started dating my husband, and I had a feeling that it was going to lead to marriage.

    I’m so glad that I did it though. It would have been a disaster if we would have gotten back together.
