    I've been dating this guy

    for about 4 months now and we get along amazingly well. We have a great connection emotionally and physically. My only big issue is that his ex girlfriend of 3 years stays in contact with him. He says repeatedly that I'm only in her way when it comes to them, he doesn't like her...

    It bothers me that my boyfriend took his ex

    gf's virginity. He didn't lose his to her and I'm not bothered by the girl that he lost his virginity to. But his last ex, the one he slept with 2 months before he met me, because they were trying to work things out is what bothers me the most. He told me that he wasn't...

    Comparisons, Egos And One-Sided, ******-Up Assumptions.

    Me, my lover and his ex-girlfriend. He was 'with' her for 10 years. 'With' because their relationship pattern went thusly: friends for a while, partners for years, then 5 years of him being her default when she wasn't hooked up with someone else. He is devoted to her. She moved...

    Her Memory Makes Me Feel Like I Am Walking In Her Footsteps...but He Didn't Even Love Her!

    With my chronic lack of self confidence, I am constantly comparing myself to my boyfriend's ex. I envy just one of my boyfriend's exes. His first ex you see was so long ago, they never had sex as they were so young. She's been gone from his life for about four years now. I don...

    I'm jealous that my boyfriend has been with

    other women, but I have been with other men so I know how illogical it is. I think part of the issue is that his exes are all ugly and it makes me feel less attractive by association. I actually feel physically sick thinking about him touching these ugly old bags before we met...

    A bit of background: I am 22-years old

    and my boyfriend is 32. Many people say it's a big gap, and I agree -- but it generally works for us. We were casual friends for about 4 years before we started dating, but now we've been together for more or less 1 year. Our official "status" kind of works on a gradient scale...

    I am stalking my boyfriend's ex.

    He dumped her for me, and the first month of us dating he was unsure about his decision and wasnt ready to be with me so we ended it. He started seeing her for a bit, but quickly he realised there were no feelings left and his intial decision to leave was correct. He begged me...
