Friends With Ex: Them: Yes ___ No ___
My ex and I still email on occasion. I still respect his opinion and after 15 years I have found he is still one of the most intelligent men I’ve ever known. Well, I’ve known many intelligent men, but usually they bore me! I guess it’s the balance that I admire. His wife doesn’t mind the connection between us. I make sure it isn’t intrusive.
Most often I believe when a women is done with a relationship, she’s completely done! Unless there are children involved. When I talk to men about past relationships, they don’t mind keeping in touch with their past partners.
The quandary is how could you love someone enough to be married or living with them and then hate them so much that you can’t be civil? Circumstances dictate the answer most often, but I get a sense of how someone views their role in a relationship by how they talk about his or her past relationships.
