Okay so I have a question. I’ll make a poll so I can really see the results on this.
Did you have exes coming out of the woodwork as soon as you got engaged???
I know my answer is definitely YES! I’ve been engaged a week now and already 5 or 6 exes have began chatting me up again, calling me, messaging me on Facebook, texting, trying to hang out with me.
What the actual heck? My engagement ring…I do not think it means what they think it means…lol. You’d think it’d have the opposite reaction of this; as in, they’d all totally go away and let me be happy.
But it’s like they all suddenly want to compete with my fiance (which is never, ever going to happen, because all of my exes are idiots and my fiance is amazing.)
Does this happen to you? And do you mind sharing crazy stories? This could be a fun thread if we so choose haha.

Hahaha, this happened to a friend of mine. I gave her some bug spray at her bachelorette party and taped a label over it that said “Ex Spray.”
As for me, not engaged yet but I really hope not. I tend to get emotional about the past so I’m definately not eager to go down memory lane. Most of them have moved on…but one in particular likes to pop up once or twice a year or so like an unwelcomed trip to the dentist and I can totally see him doing that. I have a block button and I will use it!

Any ex that would realistically call me, Fiance & I are actually friends with. Several were invited to the wedding, one is coming.
The others, especially the last one? Well. I’m pretty sure they don’t have enough of a set for that.

My ex keeps texting and emailing to ask me get together “just one last time.” Uh, NO. Even though I told him I’m engaged he’s not getting it, so now I just ignore him.

What’s worse is that all of my exes were dumped by ME, and believe me, I had my reasons. So why on earth would I want to compromise my relationship with my new FI? No, no, no! I thought this was a myth, but it’s happening like crazy. My Fiance laughs about it but I think it’s secretly kind of bugging him.

Nope, nothing yet (thank goodness!)

Not to a crazy extent. My ex did call (after a couple years not talking) and wanted to go to lunch after he found out on facebook though.

I didn’t have that many exes & did not keep in any sort of contact where they would know I was engaged immediately. So, no. My immediate ex did message me one day like a year later via AIM, and I did not respond and blocked him. Really didn’t think it was any of his business what I was doing.

Yes, yes that happened to me as well. It’s amusing so I honestly just sat back and watched the show. As soon as some guys know you’re off the market they want you back…. beats me.

I’m not engaged yet, but SO has the ring! I’ve noticed lately that 2 of my 3 exes have started talking to me more often. I’m friendly with both of them (JUST friends!), SO knows that I talk to them, and has even spoken to one. But it seems like exes know the engagement is close/has happened and want to know if you’d like to ‘sow your wild oats’ with them. Just ignore them, block them if they pester you too much, and remember why they’re your ex(es) 🙂
