My boyfriend still hangs out with his ex. Should I be worried?
Hey girl, that’s a tough sitch! Trust is crucial in every
relationship, especially when your guy is still friends with his ex. But even
if you know your BF is an awesome guy, there’s always that fear stirring around
in the back of your head. Here’s how to figure out where he really stands.
First, keep in mind that it’s not totally uncommon for guys to remain friends with their exes. But how much time does he hang out with her versus you? That’s the key. If they hang out once in a blue moon or only at parties with his crew, then it’s probably nothing to worry about.
But if he hangs out
with her on the reg or even—gasp!—ditches you to hang out with her, those are
two bright red flags that he’s still not over her. This is when you have a
one-on-one chat with him.
Don’t hurl accusations—that’ll just put him on the defense. Instead, tell him that love triangles aren't really your style. If he doesn’t redirect his attention to you—and only you—find a guy who will treat you as his number one.
