He said he is only in touch with one ex, he doesn't believe that man and woman can be friends unless they are ex.
He said they broke up because they got too familiar with each other and they were getting married. The moment he broke up he saw her as a sister... he now sees her once a year like catching up with a family member..
*they WEREN'T getting married.
Sorry about the typo. That changes the entire question...
If you Both are Not in a Real Relationship stthis given moment, he may feel it is a Big Deal To... See her once a year like catching up with a family member. However, for now, for you cannot accuse unless you know for Sure what is in Store, it could be true that she is more like a sibling and not as a lover from his Past, which apparently not such a Blast. I know myself I have a Bestie who was once a Steady Eddy, We are closer than ever with just being Friends to the Ends, No sex involved now, so Yes, it could be Possible to be Family and not have this Raise a 'Red Flag.' If there are any Signs of those Times that things ever change, then I am sure he will tell you. The more you get to know him, the More' you both can Nurse and Nurture Something Special that you have got started. Good luck. xx
In my opinion, if this was a sexual EX or a relationship where love was present, as you have stated they were going to get married... this seems to be a little too fishy for my taste... there is not need to have a ex-girlfriend in your life or boyfriend for that matter. WHY? this is a red flag, because people tend to double dip the chip! I would advised before getting serious with this person for him to have abstained from keeping contact with old his flames... In the end it would not go well for you... Look at the movie with Ben Stiller , the Kevin character was always in love with the wife, that's freaking annoying...
Ummmm... no. Men and women can't be just friends ESPECIALLY if they are exes; ESPECIALLY if they had sex and were engaged!
You don't need to "catch up" with anyone who was your ex, regardless of how you feel about them. The only reason for keeping in touch, is because you still having feelings for them. Think about it. Why would you be friends with someone and claim to really care about them... but on the other they aren't good enough to marry? That makes no sense.
Guys like to keep their exes on a string, in case something better doesn't come along. That way, they always try to weasel their way back into a relationship with an ex... which is easier than trying to find someone knew or if they just get too tired of dating. An ex is an easy fall-back.
There is literally zero reason to hang on to an old relationship that didn't work out unless you are hoping to eventually rekindle it, when nothing better comes along.
