Hanging out with Your Ex

I have been with my current boyfriend for about six months now. The crowd that we usually hang out with consists of my ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend (the four of us even work together). A couple of my other exes call me pretty regularly. I think that it is pretty bizzare that I constantly around my exes and that my boyfriend is constantly around my exes. Is anyone else in this position? I'm not even sure how much longer I can be around these people, it is just too weird. Should you even keep in touch with your exes, let alone be around them regularly.

I think it is great that you still hang around with them. I find it strange that people spend time boyfriends and girlfriends and then just never see each other again when they break up. I am still friends with the two other serious boyfriends I had before my husband. In fact the two of them are my husbands best friends. One of them was my husband best man at our wedding and we attended the wedding of the other one. We see and talk to the frequently. I don't regret my time with either of these men and even though we didn't work out as a couple I still love them as friends. With all that said, if you are uncomfortable with hanging out with them then stop doing it. Maybe just lesson the amount of time you spend outside of work.

It is good if you still can keep your relationship with your ex boyfriend, but for myself i will not fell comfortable if we still going together most if we have our own couple.

For me past is past and if you think you don't have baggage for each other then theres nothing wrong to be good friends. After all you both happy for your present relaitonship. Important in life is to value each ones personalit and friendship.

I think u should keep good relations like a good friend with your ex-boyfriends. They might help you in future when you are in some trouble. Never loose your old friends they are just like Diamonds of your life. They know your past, are with you in present and will help you in future. As you asked "Is anyone else in this position?" I am in a different type of position and tensed, i got 3 girls in my life; all 3 like me a lot. Now its hard for me to choose just 1 out of them, all 3 are good; hard to compare any with other.

I am glad your boyfriend is now working. . .I was a bit concerned by your post about him not working yesterday. I hang out with my ex -- well actually he is my brother-in-law now.
