Would you ever/have you ever willingly hung out with an ex's family? Have you ever asked if you could? Stepson's recently ex-girlfriend called him Thursday night. She asked him if she could please come over this weekend to see me and the kids. She told him that he doesn't have to spend anytime with her and he can just ignore her but she really misses us....keep in mind she was just here on Sunday, so it's not like she hasn't seen us in months! It just boggles my mind. The last thing I ever wanted to do less than a week after a break-up was go visit with the family. But then again, it's probably just an excuse to keep herself in his life...isn't there a word for that? So besides the first questions...would you be flattered or concerned if a child's or relative's ex would rather spend the weekend with you than with his/her own family?
