This might be similar to The Lingering Ex, except what I am asking is, have you ever become best friends with your ex's current flame instead of resented them?
My "ex" will always be in my life. I've known him since elementary school, our parents' houses are around the corner from each other so we're pretty close, literally. I've visited my "ex" when he moved 4 hours away, and now to his new place 3 hours away. He comes up to see me weekly and we talk on a daily basis. Even when he's in town he doesn't visit his family as much as he does me.
We've been through one heck of a roller coaster and he's been there for me more than some of my girl friends have. He thinks it's weird to meet my current lust. And on the flip side, my current lust has a lingering ex, too. I don't know about that though because women get jealous easier than guys do. She's still very much present in his and his family's life. When I went to hang out with the current lust's family, his mom mentioned her moving.
I don't know if they broke up because of the distance or what, but needless to say I got a little jealous. I know I'm a hypocrite if I get mad for the "forever ex" still being in the picture because my ex will always be best friends with me, too.
It's really a weird situation and a small world. We're so comfortable with each other that lingering "ex" drove me up to where a friend and my current lust live. My ex has even met his parents and shook his parent's hands. I chuckled at the awkwardness. Although, he did say he didn't want to hang out with me and my friends up there if my current lust was going to be there.
Have you ever hung out with two people you have had a thing with? Did it turn out okay? One of my friends invited all her past flings to her going away party and that totally wasn't "weird" at all. It's only "sex" right?
