My boyfriend and I have been together for a little while now, and he broke up with his girlfriend about 3 months before we started going out. Just recently she told him that she still has feelings for him and she wanted him back but he told her he just wanted to be friends with her. She says she understands and that she just wants to be his friend. He tells me that he does care about her alot and she's his best friend. And just the other day i asked him if he still had feelings for her and he said yes but they are going away and that the feelings that he has for me are so much stronger. I know that he would never cheat on me but everytime they talk or see eachother i get so mad. I cant tell him not to talk to her anymore because I dont want to be one of those controlling girlfriends who freak out all the time. Plus, how am i supposed to tell him that he's not allowed to talk to his 'best friend.' i just cannot stand it when he talks to her. Just hearing her name eats at me.. what should i do?
Best friends with his ex girlfriend?
Hey it's ok that you feel that way. And i agree, you can't tell him to stop seeing his best friend. It might be hard but just sorta smile and shrug it off when he mentions her. Act like you are cool with the whole thing and it will show him how much you trust him. If he spends to much time with her or talks about her alot then talk to him about it and tell him in a nice way it bothers you. Tell him how much he means to you and that you trust him. Hey if you are brave enough suggest doing stuff with the three of you. That can also show you are cool with the situation. Most guys don't like jealous and untrusting girls. Well hope I could help and Good Luck!
