Overall, by just what you’ve posted, I believe it was a good thing. He trusted you enough and was confident enough in your relationship to confide in you that his ex attempted to contact him, and him getting snappy with you when you asked him again if he was over her, could just be because he felt perhaps offended you would even ask that question after he’s already trusting you enough to tell you what his ex did, and instead of you being happy he’s not keeping secrets from you----you question his motives----and if he’s the type, questioning his honor and his loyalty to you.
I’d suggest in the future give him the benefit of the doubt and take him at his word. Unless of course, he begins to behave in a manner that makes you doubt his motivations or sincerity. If that beings to occur then trust your instincts about whether or not he’s being completely honest and upfront with you, but barring such an event, you should cherish you’re with someone who is that trusting of you and your relationship to him to not keep anything from you, because he feels you can handle the information. Don’t reward such loyalty and honesty with negative reinforcement, but encourage such behavior to continue in the future between the two of you. That’s my bottom line.
This could be a good or bad thing and just don't expect anything from him. I started dating a guy, who wasn't over his ex (I should have just left it and not pursued him) and he told me how he had talked to his ex. I wasn't thrilled, but I was happy he was truthful. Turns out he had confused feelings and left me in the dark. A bad sign will be if one day he is over her, the other he is unsure. Definitely trust your gut instinct.
Hey got snappy. Not good. Dont care if he told you before and if he did. He should said "hun I already told you I was over her. I'm just letting you know she tried to reach out to me" then give you a kiss and forget about it.
I really don't think what your friend said is true. But that's me. I'd tell a girl I'm seeing if my ex tried to contact me.
Good thing that he told you. If he hide it from you then it means he either doesn't trust you to handle it yet, or isn't over her. The fact he told you means he is over her and trusts that you can handle the situation
Good that he told you. If it's frustration that you were sensing, I'd say don't worry about it. I use to get the same way when I would have to repeat myself. Then I learned that people just wanted to be sure they heard me correctly.
Your friend is very correct. Listen to him or her.
just sounds like he's tryina make you jealous
I think it's a good thing. He's telling sensitive information, trusting you with something you could potentially use to be a dick to him or fight him.
If he's telling you, means he trusts you.
Obviously, this only applies if your ex is a normal dude not playing games. If he's trying to mess with your head and make you jealous, that's a bad thing. That's a rare scenario though, so unless you're sure, asume the best. Be happy about it.
