So I'm just wondering what the general consensus is on remaining friends with an ex. I had maintained a friendship with an exboyfriend in the past, even when I was in a new relationship. If I am honest with myself, I only stayed friends with him because I was still in love with him and still wanted him. It was only when he dicked me over sufficiently to make me no longer feel love for him that I ceased being friends with him. I am now in a situation where I'm in a relationship, and my boyfriend is the one who wishes to remain friends with an ex of his... Even though this is a girl that I feel is very manipulative, I know for a fact that she has pretty severe mental disorders, and he told me at one point that she's a complete bitch and he never wanted to talk to her again. Anyhow, she contacted him, and now they're friends again, and she's trying to talk to me. I'm really uncomfortable with this, and I've told my boyfriend before that the idea of the two of them getting back together worried me. I'm incredibly fearful of crazy women... She might realize he's in a relationship and decide to make it her goal in life to ruin it since theirs didn't work out. I've heard about some of the other things she did to him and his friend that don't make that scenario sound that improbable. Maybe I just have serious trust issues or I'm feel guilty for things I've done in the past and projecting those things onto him... Who's to say? In any event, I really don't want to be friends with this girl. Is that totally unreasonable? Should I tell my boyfriend that I don't trust this girl and I don't understand why he wants to be friends with her? Should I just suck it up and try to play nice with her and see what happens? Is there anyone in LPSGland that is still friends with an ex, and, if so, what is your motivation? Thanks a million in advance!
