Ex's are Ex's for a reason! They are people you don't date again and they are people you don't talk to anymore. Well I didn't follow those rules. There were two guys who I dated at separate times and once I broke up with them I dated both again. Not something I recommend. Anyway one of them and I became really good friends after we broke up the 2nd time. He would always call me with his "girl" problems and I would always be there to give him advice or to just lend an ear. I didn't think having a friendship with him was anything wrong, but I was married and so was he. My husband didn't like him at all and would always say something bad about him when my cell would ring. I truly liked our friendship and I wish my husband would have understood. I mean this guy and I had history, we dated for a long time off and on and him and I lived together. In the end my husband was right. I shouldn't have kept the friendship. All I was to him was a "Dear Abbey" column. Seeing how much he called me with his "girl" problems I was really glad I wasn't with him anymore. He has been married twice and has had two divorces. He is now engaged to some 23 year old who has a child. He seems to find some crazy chicks to date. Its quite amusing. His new fiance hates me and has deleted me from his facebook page. I could careless. Looking back, I am so glad that I married Jason, cause I couldn't be more happier.

      I'm not just doing because of my husband, but I'm doing it for me.. Charles only cared about himself. I was tired of always being his backup girl. Its for the best. And plus its not the end of Charles I know that I will be hearing from him sometime in the near future.. Its always been like that.. thanks for reading

      I guess if your husband objects, then it's best to end it, but i would like to remain friends with people i once cared about. Different strokes for different folks. Thank's for sharing.

      Yeah I have to say I've made the same mistake. When you care about someone - it's hard to sever all ties, I mean there are reasons you cared for them to begin with but once I did keep my distance I realized how much nicer it really was to get rid of his baggage too. Live and learn;)
