Customer Question

Hi,

An ex came back into my life 9 months again saying he'd made a mistake and could we meet up again. He's been married and divorced in the time we were apart and isnt in a position to offer me "a full blown relationship". We see each other constantly and we are definitely more than just friends but I'm ready to see this turn into more. the other fly in the ointment is a female friend of his. She texts him constantly, came over to visit him and is very clear about her intentions towards him. He says hes not interested and has told her this too. They fell out big time when she was here and he blocked her from texting him but she emailed 2 weeks ago to say her uncle was very unwell. He has since been communicating with her again and I hate it. I am so jealous and I am feeling like I am spoiling what we have because I'm jealous of her. I dont know what to do, tell him to stop contact with her or just break everything off with him!

askcounselor :

Hi, welcome to Just Answer and I am here to help you with your question. It sounds as though you are happy that your ex came back into your life after nine months time -- can you tell me a little about what your relationship was like when you were together?

askcounselor :

For example, what kinds of things did you like to do together?

JACUSTOMER-lagk0uty- :

We just love spending time together, dinner, movies, days out, walks, nights in with a dvd. We spend so much of our time just laughing and enjoying each others company. This "friend" of his and her attentions are really bugging me at the moment.

JACUSTOMER-lagk0uty- :

She sent him a birthday card saying "to my best friend of 17 years, all my love"

askcounselor :

It is important for you to have your ex come back with a certain understanding for giving you the total respect that you deserve. Have you reached the level of having more of a commitment between the two of you?
