Over My Dead Body...

Most everyone has an ex…some have several. We all have our tolerance levels when it comes to ex’s. Most ppl tend to give their ex’s a wide space and try not to have anything to do with them. But what if you HAD to spend time with them? What if there were no where to stay and you had to share a hotel room with your ex? You design whatever scenario you want but the fact is for whatever reason you both find yourselves at a hotel with only one room…one bed, no couch. You can set sleeping arrangements any way you want. Me personally, I’d rather sleep outside on the cold hard concrete in a blizzard and take the chance at freezing to death then sleep in the same room with any of my ex’s. LOL The only way I’d ever sleep in a room with an ex is if I was dead. :) What would your choice be? What sleeping arrangements would you find? Would you have a one-night stand with an ex? How would you explain it to your spouse or partner? Would there be any circumstances that you would be willing to share a room with an ex? **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

It would depend on the ex for me, my last ex i could stay in the same hotel, but i would have to make sure he knew that it was over, b/c hes the type that wouldnt force it on my but thinks that im the one and only (i hope hes over that now, i dont talk to him due to my fiance not likeing him) I have lived in the same house as many of my ex's we always seem to get along or something. There was the one and only guy that broke my heart and i had to stay in his house a few days after we broke up. It was so heart breaking for me. Now i did have one ex that was a complete buthole to me after we broke up so i wouldnt be able to stay with him after the break up. I was still friends with some of his friends and i went to go visit and he was a complete butthole. His friends even yelled at him telling him i was here being social and nice, and he was just putting a damper on everything

That's funny because there are a couple ex's (boyfriends, not husbands) that wouldn't be bad company. However, I don't think it would go over well to their wives or my husband to try and explain why we'd be stuck sharing accomodations with only one bed. That just looks suspicious even if it isn't, even if you never intended to share accomodations, etc.

I'm with you! If I had to do that I would want us to do it in shifts cause I would not want to be in the same room with him. Plus what's to keep one from going though personal things? I would just rather not be there at all.

Meh. Staying in a hotel room with my ex wouldn't bother me that much. For the most part we get along. It is just when he is a jackass that I can't stand him.

LOL Hence the reson he is an ex. right. :) That one made me smile. I know a guy that swears that he is "cool"with all of his ex.'s. I personally suspect that he is still activelyinvolved with his "ex's", which is why he is now my "ex" boyfriend.

Most of my ex's I'd not have a problem with being in a situation like that simply because we still get along AND we're adults ya know...How would I explain it to my partners...I'd tell them like it is and if they dont trust me or have issues with it they can call the hotel and get me my own damn room if its that big of a flippin deal..but mark my words there would be hell to pay when I got home

Well, thankfully I don't have an ex husband,but I do have 2 ex boyfriends. I could share a room with one of them and I would get the bed and he would take the floor and my spouse wouldn't care as he has actually lived with us for several months before. The other one I could probably share a hotel room with,but his wife would go spastic and my husband would not like it. He has caused us a lot of heartache with my oldest child (his child who my husband has adopted). He would be a challenge but I know that we could share the room and nothing ever happen.

i try my very best to stay away with my ex. if i had to share a hotel room with my ex, i'd most probably banish him to the bathroom. if he is not gentleman enough to do that, then i'll lock myself into the bathroom. i do not want to be in the same room with any of my ex. well that applies for the ex that i couldn't stand and thus broke off with. if it's with an ex that broke off with me, i'd ask him to sleep on the floor. if he prefers the bed then i'll be the one on the floor. afterall, he broke off with me didn't he? so there is a much less chance of him pouncing on me when i'm asleep. i would NEVER have a ONS with anyone, much less an ex. it's the worst betrayal a person can do to his/her partner. an ONS is even worst than an affair, at least to me.

Holy crap! When I started reading this thread I thought maybe there was a reasonable way out but noooo. There is no 'had to' spend time about it with my ex, I would sleep in my car. With the doors locked. If I HAD to be in the hotel, I likely wouldn't be sleeping. Most hotels have a place to eat or something close. I suppose I could go in the bathroom and put a pillow in the tub? And lock the door? I am hoping my ex wouldn't be keen on seeing me either, because if he WAS, then I wouldn't even want to go in the room with him. ick.

Heck yes you right, get me a spot right next to you. I came home to visit my daughter and grandkids one year for Thanksgiving. She informed me that she had invited her father for dinner too. She said now mom you can be nice for one hour. All I could think about was how long it would take sitting across from him and not throwing my plate at him. I don't think children understand what he*ll you went through with them. If there was only one room I would sleep in the bathtub with the door locked. There could never be a reason good enough for me to spend one night near him.

good day.. I have a ex-GF. She broke up with me several years ago, I admit I was hurt but she had the reason to do so, since then I accepted that and moved on as she did. Since we didn't broke up good heartedly then, I believe most couples don't but I hold no grudges simply put we're not meant to be. No use getting frustrated over the matter and waste my heart and my life. Now, I had a fiancee,I love her and we will marry this year. In that given scenario, if circumstance is toying with us, I wouldn't mind sleeping in the couch if she wouldn't mind sleeping in the room. When we were still together, I loved and respected her and I will respect her now even only as a friend. I just hope she's comfortable with that, if not then I would go and sleep where-ever possible(but not in the blizzard and kill myself, I have much to live for LOL). I just hope she chooses to let me stay in the couch so that I'll know things are ok with us and respect me as much as I respect her. I wouldn't count on any funny business like one night stand, it's not my style and she knows that, I just hope we get over what we had and just remind ourselves that once we were lovers and once we were also happy with each other and let us go on as old friends. I think I deserve that much.

I have several exes. Most of them I am still friends with. One of my exes even walked me down the aisle at my wedding. So for almost all my exes, I could share space with them. Not a bed, though, as I am married now and so are most of them. There is one, that I would only share a room with if I could knock him unconcious. That might be too much fun for me. Or at least tie him to a chair in the corner and duct tape his mouth shut so I didn't have to listen to him.

Thankfully, all my ex's have nothing to fear from me, nor I from them. I suppose sharing the bed for one night wouldn't hurt, though he'd be at the bottom of the bed! I'm the kind of person who can make things work, even in a tricky situation. Explaining to my current partner? Well, he's not the jealous type so he'd understand. Also, I don't think any man would find my over stretched body all that appealing! lol. One good thing about having kids!

Oh sure I would share a room with ANY of my X's. I have LOTS of revenge planned for ANY of them that I could do all night long and nobody would hear them scream lmao. Man I am evil, so evil, but seriously, if I HAD to stay IN the rooom (saying you can't sleep outside the room in the cold as your scenario says). I suppose I would tell them to take their butt to the bathroom and sleep because I need a good nights rest in that cozy bed lmao. Wedge something in the door so they can't get out. If they refuse just throw them in there and wedge a chair up on the door lol. Something, I would figure something out so I wouldn't have to be in the same room with them lol. I know I have lots of bottled revenge huh? haha just my two cents... ~*~J_Dawgs~*~

I have a unique way of hiding my anger..If in a situation that i had to spend the night with my ex i could be cordial,however i would not get involved EVER again...Once i am off of a person my feelings are null,i can be nice but i would never fall into that same trap again...If i was scared of them then i could not spend the night but otherwise i could be cordual....

The only time I'd share a room and have with one of my exes was when I thought there was a chance that we would be able to work things out. It did not work out. I would never do that if I had already moved on to someone else. I did live with an ex for nearly a year after we broke up but we didn't share the same room and I would never do it again. It was very difficult.

My husband wouldn't like the idea. He trusts me though. When I go back to Mississippi I actually spend a good deal of time with my ex. He is the father of my 3 oldest children. He also lives right next door to my parents house. It is kind of impossible to not see him. It is a good thing that we get along! I would feel really uncomfortable with sharing a hotel room with him. He could sleep on the floor! And there is no way I would be willing to have a one-night stand with him!
