I feel that by keeping her in his life, he is being slightly disrespectful to me, as she clearly still has some kind of hold over him for him to put up with this. Please help before I drive myself mad!!!!! At the heart of the issue, this sort of thing stems from your own fears. Fear that she might do something to screw up your relationship with him. Fear that she might take advantage of him and you want to protect him from that.

While these are all legitimate fears, remember that they are your fears and therefore your responsibility in terms of handling them. The fact is that just about any high-quality guy out there is going to have ex-girlfriends. He may or not be friends with them. Generally speaking, though, when you have a relationship with someone, you consider it your relationship with that other person.

She plays the middle man. Sure, your man may need to talk to his BM here and there. But for the most part, school-age children can communicate directly with their fathers, no middle man required.

And at some point it becomes ridiculous for all calls to be routed through her.

Ask a Guy: How Can I Get My Ex Boyfriend Back?

This candlelit dinner had seemed to be to signal things were on the upswing. I was out the door in a shot with him on my heels. When we got to the subway station, I told him to give me back my keys. I stood there, rigid, as he wiggled each key off the chain, dropping them into my hand with cold finality. I cried the whole way home. What else was there to do?

If your boyfriend talks about his ex, don’t be afraid to speak up. Even the best of relationships can be tested when a guy continually brings up his ex. It’s common to .

I’m 22, I know I’m hott, but was brought up by a single-parent woman. My mother raised me to be a gentleman and taught me a thing or two about women I tried to get back with her by having other girls kiss me just to help me out. I didn’t want to believe that we were done and I didn’t for a year! I didn’t really “talk” to anyone about it too much to “get it off my chest”, but I knew that other girls didn’t want to hear that so if I were that guy you “like”, I would want to take my time too.

But it seems like they haven’t left their feelings behind for whoever yet It took me a year so it’s gotta take some time to get over. But on the other hand, when they say this, they might be trying to get sympathy out of it from you because they like you. By telling you about their girlfriends hopefully buys sympathy points bettering the chances of getting with you. I’ve tried getting sympathy out of “future” girlfriends. Think positive and smile a lot and it will dissuade guys into changing the subject, hopefully.

Honestly, these “guys” sound immature and are not worth your time. Trying to get along with a guy is what to look for and if he is serious about what he says and how he says it.

And there is nothing you can do about this issue – as it is solely his issue. The problem with this blaming behavior is that it absolves him of all guilt, and at the same time, makes you thread on eggs, in order to prevent giving him any cues that you resemble his ex-wife in any way. That is outright impossible. This bad marriage of him creates serious issues in his interpersonal relationships. Probably not only with you. And as long as he perceives this blaming the ex-wife tactic to work, there is little incentive for him to change, and seriously reflect on himself.

Don’t put up with it! The longer this continues the worse thoughts like that tend to become – and that does not add to the joy of any relationship with him. As for what to do, I would suggest he goes to a form of counseling to deal with the effects of the divorce. Ultimatums rarely work, but if you don’t give one, the divorce will be his eternal excuse for him to behave in whatever he pleases to do and holding you to different standards, mind you.

The alternative is to break up with him outright, and that is also not desirable I take it you would continue the relationship if this problem does not exist. His problematic way of dealing with everything would remain in existence.

Am I Wrong for Asking My Boyfriend to Stop Talking to His Ex-Girlfriend?

As told to Libby-Jane Charleston His name was Piers and on his dating profile he mentioned he was into rollerblading, which is something I like to do. We chatted for a few days before we made arrangements to catch up and I suggested rollerblading, of course, so that was something to look forward to. He was pretty much as good-looking as his profile picture, although I think he lied about his height. He told me he thought I was “super pretty”, and when I was having trouble getting my rollerblades on, because my socks were too thick, he was very gentlemanly and helped me.

He told me he’s only really had one relationship and that was with his ex-wife — they started dating in high school and were married for 15 years. It didn’t take Piers long to start talking about his ex wife.

When a guy just wants to flirt with you and have fun, he will never talk about his girlfriend in front of you. Don’t expect to develop a relationship with this type of guy. He already has the life he wants: he has a girlfriend that he probably loves and he just wants to flirt with other girls for fun.

Every Monday I like to post a Reader Question and then take a stab at answering it. They text quite a bit and talk on the phone. It just really bugs me. I had another email recently from a woman in a similar situation. Her husband had dated a girl for three years in high school. He then went on to marry his now-wife. But the former girlfriend is still in their social circle, and the two of them talk all the time.

So if your man is acting kind of childish, I encourage you to take a step back and survey this list. We could all use a dose of reality. Read on and godspeed. He is averse to your success. Dating a man child means dating someone who is stuck in a conventional, patriarchal mindset, if only to ease his own insecurities. When you start to succeed especially in the professional sector , he starts to feel weak, loses his balance, and flips out at you.

You’ve been dating for weeks, maybe months. In your mind you’re his girlfriend. It certainly feels like you’re his ’s passion, love, fun, and maybe even an occasional “I love you.”.

So he keeps asking, and asking, some seemingly irrelevant questions, just to keep things going. He Leans in When you talk to him, he leans in. Even if he can hear you perfectly well. Look at the amount of effort he puts into having a conversation with you. Look at his body language and see how much effort he puts into the conversation, how much attention is he giving you with his body. Still this guy might like you as well. He Comes Up to You Okay, again, an obvious one.

Or he likes your girlfriend! Either way, a guy that comes up to you in a bar, club, cafe, bookshop etc. He needs you to give him a sign just look!
