  • The only parent I’ve stayed in contact with is Cindy. She’s my ex’s mom and she’s really good friends with me and my dad. She even was the one who helped me when my other ex cyberbullied me on Facebook and on Instagram. Daniel is Cindy’s mom and also my ex boyfriend but we’re best friends now. As for the rest of them, I’m not in any contact with them whatsoever. Especially Norman. He’s the grandfather of one of my exes and when I came over to his apartment, I would be scared the crap out of him. It wasn’t that he actually did something to me but he just gives out a strange vibe every time I visit. I eventually stopped visiting after a while and I haven’t had any contact with any of my exes since the day either they broke up with me or the day that I broke up with them.

  • I spent 15 yes with my ex husband and his mom and I became great friends. So when he cheated and I left him his mom and I stayed friends. She didn't fault me for leaving. She knows he was wrong. Then my ex got married again. Unfortunately he suddenly died. His mom and his new wife developed a good relationship however when she found out she was friends with me still she told his mom that she had to choice between her or me. His mom said she's allowed to be friends with who ever she wants. So my ex's wife stop talking to her and didn't send her a memorial necklace with her sons ashes. Broke her heart. What an immature insecure bitch.

  • I stayed friends with a long term ex girlfriends mom, Her daughter and I dated from age 14 till 17, even after we split up I stayed in contact with her mom, cause she would call me and say stuff like "Just cause you two split up, doesn't mean WE can't stay friends, I like hanging out with you and talking to you! And it was that way for a few years, til sadly she got cancer and passed away from it. She was cool especially for an older woman, and we got along great, and both loved Hockey (NY Rangers) and Baseball (NY Yankees) and we would go to games together and get hammered all the time, and yeah, the old woman COULD drink ME under the table! LOL! Just because her bitchy spoiled daughter and I broke up didn't mean that we couldn't remain friends, so we did and yeah, we became very good pals. Her husband lived and worked over in England, so she was alone and bored most of the time anyway. I think it made her very happy to have "pal" to chill with, talk to and go out with once in a while. She would tell me all sorts of stuff that she would NEVER tell her own kids! I m still friends with her sister, nieces and nephews.

  • I dated a girl for about 5 months when I was 21. She was 19 and she still sliced with her parents. The first time I went over to her place, it was great to have a chat with their parents. One time I noticed the wifi was horrible on the second floor so I bought a cheap router and fixed it. I immediately was the hero of the household.

    But despite all that, I didn't keep in contact with them after we stopped dating. Granted we weren't dating for very long, but I think it's still similar to what the question is talking about

  • I didn't know them well enough for me to want to continue keeping in touch with them. I'm told they'll always be willing to help if I need it, but tbh it would be way to awkward for me to talk to them right now.

  • Not me. However, my parents and still in touch with my first bf's parents. They were friends first before my relationship with my 1st boyfriend started.

  • My ex boyfriend, someone I picked out engagement rings with, is still friends with my mom and they text about every 2 weeks. Honestly, I wish it would stop. I don't like it. And we frequent the same gym, and he came up to us out of nowhere to say hey to her, and it made me very uncomfortable. I would not stay friends with an ex's parents. I've also never been particularly close to an ex's parents, my last bf's mother threw away my belongings, blocked me on social media and on the phone, and was a massive bitch/had tried to sabotage his relationships in the past. And my mom is too in my business lowkey hoping I get back together with my ex. Parents belong far far away from relationships...

    • That's mature.🤨 You need to realize that just because things don't work out between the couple doesn't mean you stop caring for each others family. My ex's woman was like you. She couldn't stand that her now husband (my ex) mom and I were still friends. His mom treated her good and she was her new daughter in law. But she still cared for me and I her. She was another mom to me for 15 years. So my ex's new wife decided she wouldn't talk to her mother in law anymore because she tried to make her choose and she said she wouldn't. Broke her heart because she cared about her.

    • I obviously don't care. No one asked for your opinion let alone a whole paragraph that I'm not gonna read. My your fucking business and focus on yourself.

  • Yep I’m close with his whole family haha he’s not anymore tho, he rarely sees them

  • I never was close to any of them to the extent that I would want to do that. I am close friends with an ex who is close to her family, but I didn't have much in common with them.

  • No, but I did keep in touch with an ex-girlfriend's brothers. I was friends with them. And they definitely sided with me after we split up... So it helped me come to closure.

  • Nope. I was real close to the parents of my ex but once we broke up her parents black-listed me. It wasn't my doing, it was totally their decision and it was one that stung a little.

  • I am no longer in contact with any of my ex's. But one of my ex's, my mom and her mom I've been best friends ever since before I was born. So, of course I'm still going to occasionally talk to my ex's mom.

  • Yess, especially with everyone having FB accounts now. I just ran into my ex's father in Walmart and talked for a least 30 minutes. His exact words you broke up with my daughter not her family. You can still come around and check on us you know. Her neices and nephews still call me Uncle and I still call her aunts and uncles my aunts and uncles and they call me nephew. She and I were together for 17 years so a lot of it is just habit, but there is genuine love there. I don't think she likes it though. She has moved on with someone else. She has brought up me having contact with her family. I told her that her family loves her but they like me more.
