Do you keep in touch with your ex (girlfriends/boyfriends/spouses)

Just wondering how many people stay in touch on a regular basis, through email, or dates, or phone calls with people they used to date. And why? And, does your current significant other know?

Your right, sometimes it can really backfire in your face and your current relationship may not really like it. Smart thinking-friend:)

Yes but initially only because he is the father of my children. Now though we are best friends. Which is good cause the kids are happy and there is no animosity. I don't have a partner at the mo, but when I find Mr Right he will be perfect enough to understand how important my ex is in mine and my kids lives.

I always think it is nice, although sometimes odd, when divorced people become good friends. I think it is great for the kids, and I guess, who else is better to be a friend than someone you used to be married to? Very mature. And that is difficult to find in people these days.

I don't keep in touch with any of my ex boyfriends. I used to keep in touch with my childhood sweetheart but he's lost interest now. I don't think he ever wanted to be just my friend. That's the danger with keeping in touch with exes. When i did talk to him my boyfriend knew about it, it was just texting but everytime we did text my ex would ask about my relationship with my boyfriend. Once was had been going out for two years and were talking about staying together through Uni my ex just stopped keeping in touch.

I think you have a good point about not knowing what the intentions are from the other person. Whether they are cool just to be friends, or are waiting for the relationship to teeter, so they can offer a "shoulder to cry on". And I think its cool that your boyfriend knew, and was ok with it.

I don't keep in contact with any of my ex's . I wouldn't be very happy if my husband did this so I don't agree I should . I did run into one of my ex's about a year ago and thought it was funny because I didn't even recognize him . He knew who I was right away .

My wife fully supports the idea of me staying in touch with my ex-wife; and if my ex-wife ever resurfaces from the cult compound in Costa Rica where she was last seen, I intend to get in touch with her and catch up with whatever she has been up to...

Kudos to the both of you for supporting one another and for the intentions you have of getting in touch with her, after what she is going through.

I don't keep in touch with any of my exs. I've moved since highschool finished. I don't think it'd be healthy to continue with exs. I've heard many times the ex will cause problems for the new relationship.
