Do you get jealous when your boyfriend or husband sees his ex-girlfriend or ex-wife?
A reader - let's call her Amanda - asked for help with her boyfriend. He sees his ex-girlfriend regularly, and talks to her a couple times a day.
Actually, I don't think it's jealousy on Amanda's part...it's her boyfriend being stupid. Why does he need to talk to his ex every day? They don't have kids together - and he's been with Alex for over a year now.
Amanda asked her question on my article, How to Stop Obsessing About Your Ex and Get on With Your Life. I think her boyfriend is obsessed with his prior girlfriend, and can't let her go. She's meeting some need that he has.
What advice would you give Amanda? I think her boyfriend is the one who needs advice - he needs to focus on his current girlfriend, not his past one. He know how much it hurts Amanda when he talks to his ex, yet he does it anyway. Jerk.
