The main issue I have with him however is that he talks about his ex-girlfriend a lot; I feel like he is still hung up on her.
She is a drug user and he knows he’s better off without her, but is still drawn to her.
These are the facts; I hope you choose to accept them. And I know, when she gets emotional or vulnerable when sharing the pain of her failed marriage, that it has nothing to do with ME. She misses the innocence, happiness and security that she felt when she was in that relationship.
But again, I’m not pining for them, putting them up on a pedestal, or talking to them four times a day.I’m sharing a very important part of my past, like talking about the way I was in high school, or my deceased father.There’s a reason I’m not with them and whether they dumped me or I dumped them, it amounts to the same thing: the case is closed.And if I’m in a committed relationship and I want my girlfriend to really understand me, she needs to hear my crazy stories.
Should I bail on this relationship or talk to him at length regarding this issue?Dear Lerene, You’re probably asking the wrong person. I’m one of those people who doesn’t see anything wrong in dredging up the name of ex’s for one simple and obvious reason: THEY’RE EX’S!!!
