I know Y is a very nice person but I feel that a chapter has already closed in their lives. The biggest fear, of course, is the threat – whether real or imagined – that the ex poses to the current partner.
I feel that X should focus more on our relationship instead. X and Y have decided that they do not see a future together and have ended their relationship.
X has told me on a few occasions that I could either live with it or end the relationship if I can’t accept it. I have accepted the fact that she is sharing the same house with Y and that she will always go over to Y’s family’s place for family dinners and get-togethers.
But I can honestly say I never had troubles with the situation when I was dating. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Getting into a situation like that would be like walking blindfolded through a live minefield. she thought that it wasn't any of my business.)Funny thing is that she got jealous and possessive when I saw other women, though. My SO goes back to see his kids each weekend 3 out of 4 weekends a month and I have no problem with it. He spends the weekends cooking, cleaning and shopping because she does none of the above (she has a bad back, but the doctors say she really should get off her botty and move!! Anyway- I admire him for doing it- he works 400 k's away from them so at least he gets to spend time with them.
I was always very upfront about it and explained why, and the men I dated seemed ok with it. I am now happily engaged to someone I dated while I lived with my ex.i know someone like that..it has no effect on how i feel about her..i understand her situation..'course, i may be a bit more liberal than alot of people, but there are a million different stories.each one on its' own merit...p.s.--she's a great person.... I realise this isn't quite the same as living 24/7 with an ex, but it has some of the same elements.
[Read: How to deal with your girlfriend’s annoying ex boyfriend] Is your girlfriend still in love with her ex boyfriend? And you won’t always notice the signs immediately if your girl is still lost in thoughts about her ex.
Sometimes, you may just find her being distant and aloof. She may appear sad and bored when she’s with you, and even keep her distance from you now and then.
You all ready know the friends, family and business associates. You may just find yourself moving in with your "X" The ecomony sucks! After I learned this "minor detail" I told him I couldn't go out with him until his living situation changes.
I said i didn't want to get in the middle of something and I wasn't quite sure what was going on .
My girlfriend rented a house with her ex-bf but they split up after about a year.
She still has almost a year left on the lease though and says she has no problems living with him because she isn't home much anyway.
X would go over to Y’s family home for dinner every now and then. Whenever X tells me she’s going over to Y’s place for dinner, I get upset.
I don’t like it but I can’t tell her that because it would annoy her.
It can be "uncomfortable" if the "X" and the new "man" look at each other like who's better than who. We have been together 18 months and do plan on moving in together when my kids finish schol this year.
