    I am dating a guy who has lived across the street from his ex for 7 years. The ex talks about...

    their current relationship problems when I am not around. My guy claims he only lives there for his kid. They were only married 2 years and he tried to get back together with her after living across the street the first year. Why am I uncomfortable with this ? When I told him he broke up with me. Trying to figure out why and what went wrong.

    A guy who lives across the street from his ex, is making a clear statement, of how his ex is still a matter of priority to him and he has not moved on.

    How do people fall in love or get acquainted? By comes across each others paths.

    He did you a favour by breaking up with you because he was never yours to begin with.

    I agree with Qudsia.. living across the street from his ex clearly means you're some sort of rebound.. You should be happy he broke up with you because you were never his priority especially since they share a child together.

    Don't get so worked up my dear, sounds like this guy aint worth it and I would suggest you move on and wipe him off your memory.

    it is natural feel what you feel but let the things happen. if you sure about his love to you dont be uncomfortable. if he want to be with her  he stay but he dont so be happy and it's important where she live. let her to move , let her feel uncomfortable because you win!
    good luck

    Dating a guy who's ex wife lives across the street could be a little complicated when he has to be involved with her regularly due to them having a child together - and because you've said they have ongoing 'relationship problems'. You have every right to be uncomfortable about dating a guy in this situation. When you ask why and what went wrong, it seems like he's ended it because he's not ready to fully detach from her and commit to you. It doesn't seem like the problem is anything you've done, just that he's got himself into a certain living arrangement (which he may be comfortable with) and probably isn't ready for a new committed relationship just yet (or maybe even any time soon). It seems like his priority is her (and his child).

    Thanks. The question is inaccurate in that I meant his ex talks to him about her current boyfriend problems. My concern is her comfort in doing so and for what purpose ? He claims there is no emotional connection to her. After breaking up , he now wants to talk. I am shocked that he took such drastic action just because I honestly shared my concerns. I appreciate all the comments.
