    Friendship and exes

    Advertisements
    I've been hearing a lot lately about staying friends with exes and if that should be accepted in a relationship or not. So assume you don't like his ex(es), what would you be ok with?

    Poll coming....

    EDIT: I forgot my answer. If I don't like them, I will do my best to understand why he is friends with them. However, if they cause drama I am not ok with them even on his FB page. Drama can stay in high school.

    Part of me believes that nearly every ex is some kind of poison in a relationship.

    DF isn't friends with any of his exs per-se. He does have a little girl and he has to civil with her mother (when we ever find her because she's disappeared with his child, but that's another story) so I have to deal with that.

    If he were to be friends with is exes I suppose it's something I'd have to deal with because they are his friends but if one of them were to ever cross the line or make it obvious she still had feelings for him I'd have to draw a line there.

    With db, I didn't mind at first. But it was painfully clear his ex still had feelings for him and was doing everything in her power to break us up. So yeah, exes can be friends if they realize it's JUST FRIENDS.

    For DH's ex, and for my ex. No amount of contact is ever ok. Not facebook friends, not texts, nothing.

    I would not be ok with her either if she still had feelings for him. I would trust DB and only trust her to cause h.s. drama.

    with April Lynne I would be okay until she stepped over the line and he is the same way with my exes (2 of whom are now my best friends but one is happily married) It just depends on the situation.

    I'm not sure. I haven't figured it all out yet. I don't have any exes, so its hard for me to understand the situation. So, I put "other" because its still confusing to me...

    I don't think he's really in contact with any of his exes. All in all I'm not that cool with it.

    It depends on the situation.. I'd accept occasional texts few and far between as long as they both were clear that they were only friends..
