I have a number of girlfriends that I’m appalled that I ever dated, a handful of girlfriends who were wonderful whom I didn’t appreciate, and a few girlfriends that really, would have been better off as friends. If you’re a recent couple, you don’t really have a right to say anything about how he lives his life.
You don’t have any leverage on a man until he loves you, and the more you pressure him to change, the less likely he’s going to be busting out the “L-Word” any time soon.
He’s letting her do that to me and to our relationship.
He refuses to distance himself from her and thinks I’m being unreasonable by asking him to do so. She was extremely nice to me, so much so it felt unnatural since she doesn’t know me at all.
I just think the whole situation is disrespectful to me and her behavior is very inappropriate.Speak with him and ask him to explain what’s going on for him. Ask constructive questions and most importantly, ensure he feels understood. My boyfriend is best friends with his ex-girlfriend.The husband provides money and stability, but they don’t truly connect the way she does with her ex.The husband seems to accept this and there is virtually no probability that she would leave him for the man she dumped seven years ago.
