What are your thoughts on the term "ex"?

Most people have an ex or exes. Generally speaking I find there are a lot of negative connotations that go with it. I'm bothered by it as I've only ever been in one previous relationship, and while we're no longer together, we're still really good friends. I don't like calling her my exe because I don't want people thinking poorly of her. I've taken to using the term "Mer" in place of exe (short for forMER). Anyway, what are your thoughts on the subject?
