Hi Everybody, just got a quick question, I am the guy who everybody goes to for advice or tells me everything. I was just thinking about one of my friends, she has a boy friend and everything (got him right after she dumped her last boy friend (not 100% sure what happened between them). They got together (her and her new boy friend) over a year ago, what I find odd was that she still see's the ex a lot, I know she cares for him a lot and does not want to hurt this guy, she has put her foot down on the fact she won't let her new boy friend meet her ex boy friend (despite the ex and the girl are friends (sorta)). I guess its the fact that she wants to avoid an awkward situation with her ex, and still wants to maintain a friendship since she enjoys his company and just talking to him (That is my assumption). The reason why I ask was the ex and I talked last night and well, I couldn't give him a straight answer and I was wondering if there was any other reasons why a girl would want him to be 'friends' while she dated another guy (but not letting them meet).

who knows. I wouldn't mind for my exes to meet my new guy because my exes got nothing on my new guy and he knows it.
Anyways, maybe she thinks the new guy will be jealous or the old guy will be jealous. Who knows... you'll just have to ask her.
I know a lot of my best friends are best friends with their exes, and then their new boyfriend or girlfriend are also best friends with their new exes etc.
Some times that may not be the case. LIke my friend T could not make his new girlfriend be friends with his ex of 6 years because his ex thinks the new girl is UGLY and I think she is saying mean stuff to T about it because she is jealous and she wants to have T and also have her new BF... if you know what I mean. But yeah, it is probably different with every situation.0
