OK so me and my boyfriend have been together for 2 and a half years. We have not had the best relationship. He likes to text other people behind my back. Well, last night we shared an intimate time together and when we woke up this morning he started texting his ex. He says she's good for advice. He then text my best friend to see if I had fun last night and if I was happy! Why would he continue to talk to his ex if he knows it bothers me? Please help me out with this! I am so confused!

A few of my exes still come to me for advice. It's really nothing more than that. I even remained really good friends with one of them. We didn't talk all the time, once he had a girlfriend we cut contact down to maybe once or twice a month. But he would come to me for advice as to what to do with his girlfriend, and I enjoyed helping him improve his situation. There was no talk other than what was going on in our lives and how we were doing. Just like any other friendship. His girlfriend didn't like the idea and told him to either stop talking to me, or she was going to leave. He of course stopped talking to me, and I lost out on someone I considered a really good friend. I understand why it bothered her, but if she honestly heard the content of our conversations she would have realized that she didn't have anything to worry about.
Contact with exes can be a touchy subject, but it is not always what it appears to be. It hurt me to lose one of my truest friends because his girlfriend was insecure.1
