My Fiance had an ex who was really brutal to him and always jerked him around and in describing how he let himself be treated so badly he said “She had me feeling so bad about myself that whenever she wanted to get back together it made me think okay, maybe this time she’ll be nice to me, maybe this time I’ll deserve to be treated well.” He smartened up about this girl about a year before I met him, but still he got jerked around for 3 years.

This girl is jerking your man around. She only wants him because he has somebody. He’s falling for it and shouldn’t be talking to any women like he talks to her. Move on and find a guy with a backbone.

I just wasn’t good enough?! So he wasn’t good enough for her, but he’s good enough for you?!

I’m totally fine with Darling Husband being friends with exes, but it is officially over between he and his exes and they are all married now. It sounds like they both keep reminiscing and wishing they were together… let them be together then. You deserve better!!

sorry, but there is NO way I’d be able to continue this relationship like this.  If I were you, I’d give him an ultimatum: Me or her.  I could not marry someone I could not trust.  I mean, whats up with the hair in the shower?  If he didn’t want her back/regret losing her, they wouldn’t be communicating in the manner in which they do,

Yeah, I have to agree with PPs.  Something is strange here.  I could maybe understand if he had kind of had feelings for her or whatever early in your relationship but not still!  It’s ridiculous.  You’re engaged!  Tell him if he wants to be with her so badly, he can go ahead and go to her because you deserve better!

My fiance and I were in the exact same position.  He had an ex who cheated on him (4 times) broke up with him, then tried to come back multiple times.  The difference is my fiance told her he had found someone and didn’t really care about being friends with her anymore.  Despite her many attempts, he has NO interest in being friends with her.  He doesn’t hate her, he’s suprisingly pretty apathetic towards her.  I think that’s the key.  You don’t want someone who “loves” or “hates” their ex.  You want them to be over them.  And your fiance clearly is not over her.

It sounds like she’s playing him like a fiddle.  But you can’t blame her.  She has no loyalty to you.  You should blame him.  He’s the one that’s being disloyal and disrespectful to you.  He may not be “cheating” (he also might be) but either way he is emotionally involved with this other woman, and its not a platonic relationship.  Moja Milosc is right, you need a guy with some backbone.  If he’s not dropping her after making comments like “that should have been me” then he’s putting her before you and that’s BS!! People will treat you how you allow then to, and if you allow him to treat you like this, you better belive that it will continue.  I feel that its ultimatum time.  Stop talking to her or you’re done.  But if you say that you better follow through or you won’t ever be taken seriously and he’ll know he can get away with whatever he wants to do.  I’m so sorry this is happening to you.  You deserve so much better!

@brideatbeach: I was thinking the same thing. What an insulting thing to say in front of you. Why is he not good enough for her, but good enough for you?

I agree with other ladies. My Fiance is friends with an ex, although besides an occasional text saying hello, they don’t see each other or speak really. She was a long time friend before dating him, and they broke up because they were better friends than a romantic couple.

To me, being friends with exs isn’t a problem. It’s when the friendship is more than a friendship. It sounds like your Fiance never wanted this relationship to end and would go back to her if he could. He clearly is still hung up on her AND she clearly still enjoys stringing him along.

You need to get out… fast. I would never tolerate this kind of treatment. You deserve much better.

“you still mean a lot to me” “I still care about you” “I’m sorry things didn’t work out, I just wasn’t good enough”

 

If you are over someone you dont say these things, these are things you say if you are still hung up on someone. Hes sorry things didnt work out? Doesnt that mean hes sorry they broke up and would rather be with her? I always say I am delighted things didnt work with my ex so now I am with the man of my dreams instead of a cheating liar.

His behavior is unacceptable, you need to say absolutely no more contact with her or you are walking, and you need to mean it. He is not respecting you or being 100% devoted to you, she still has a big place in his heart and you deserve ALL of someones heart. The fact that she comments on your photos that it should have been her?!?!?!?! I would have flipped out and laid down the law then! PP is right, she is jerking your man around because she thinks he belongs to her, and if he was the man you deserve, he would have let her know he belongs to YOU and those things arent acceptable and cut off contact on his own.

Yikes, I would run as far away as I can! He obviously still has very real feelings for her.

So sorry you are going through this 🙁

@Annabelle86:

while I agree with every word, I don’t think that solution is a good one. He can delete her from FB, block her emails and number, but that won’t stem the feelings he has for his ex.

@Oneeleven:

I agree and I think she deserves better to be honest, but if she doesnt want to come out and break up with him right away, I think that #1, the ultimatum will gauge if he is willing to give up his ex for her and #2, cutting off all contact is the first step in getting over someone and the first step towards rebuilding their trust. I wouldnt stay with the man while he is trying to get over loving an ex, but we dont know all the facts and maybe she would like to try to work things out first.
