My boyfriend is very close to his ex.. advice?
Hi everyone, I just thought I'd make a post here because I'm very stuck in this situation. I have feelings that I am trying to get rid of but it is very hard for me.
I met my boyfriend 2.5 years ago, when I went to school in his city. We dated for about 10 months and we broke up (there were some issues at the time, but are now not issues anymore). About a month later, he started dating this girl who he knows from high school (so they have known each other for about 14 years or so, very long time). They lasted for 6.5 months, then he broke up with her.
I heard from two people (one that heard this from him and one that heard this from her) that he never loved or fell in love with her, so he broke it off. He only truly loved me and this one other girl before me.
We have started dating again (he was single for about 10 months after her). Although we are not official yet, as it has only been about a month or so, I find that I am very jealous about their friendship. She contacts him everyday (Facebook, texts, MSN, calls) and they hang out sometimes as friends (go to the movies together etc). I have been assured by two of his friends that he does not feel the same way for her, even though she loves him. I do not want to talk to him about it because I feel like I will appear jealous, and I don't want anything to jeopardize our relationship again, because I am in love with him.
Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with my jealous feelings? I am trying to suppress them, but every time I see her contacting him, I get the same feelings again. I live in a different city about 45 minutes from him, so maybe that is making it worse.
Thank you for your help,
