  • since s/he is effectively dead to you, i don't see an issue with it if it's immediately following a traumatic breakup.

    however, if 3 years have passed and you're still doing it, then... you may have issues.

    Nah I don't really care. It's kind of funny though.

  • I think it's ok, but I've read Rissyanne's answer and it made me think it's ok except if you're talking to your kids

  • Yes. It means you are over your ex enough to make a joke about him.

    • The question is "do you think it's healthy" doesn't mean I do it or not. Re/ the question "why even talk about them", that's another completely different thread :) , but my take on it is that's impossible to do so; friends, family will ask you about them.

  • I would never do that because of my kids.

    • Oh you're right!! I wouldn't either if I had children.

    • And my kids are grown... but I still wouldn't do that.

  • Seems a little creepy to me.

    • It depends; lets see... when you say my "Ex", it does carry a negative charge... not say you'll almost always have to use it with the determinant of possession "my". Using another term, especially one that denotes closure and does not require a possession determinant seems healthier, no? I don't know either, I trying to understand here. :)

  • maybe something less confusing, people may actually believe someone is dead.
