    I have started dating this guy who is 'best friends' with his ex. He told me that he picked her up from a night out at 2.30 am and that they have a dog together. I have seen his facebook and he likes all her pictures and they go round each others houses etc. I am not sure what to think of this.I got the vibe he still liked her when he mentioned her on our first date.
    Plus she is prettier than me. He keeps taking ages to text back etc.
    I am not sure what to do about this as I may look like a nutter if I say anything. I have such a bad feeling about this.

    What should I do? Forget it? Say something?

    You have a right to know what you're getting into...

    Say something, ofcourse say something. You're entitled to raise your concerns and then see where you stand.

    Honestly, it sounds like he hasn't let his feelings for her go yet.

    Talk to him, but it sounds like perhaps its too early for him to commit to a new relationship

    Thank you. This is an ex from years ago but I will have to say something at some point.

    You really need to talk to him. You have every right to ask him about his feelings if you're in a relationship with him.

    I think there's cases where it's okay to be in contact with an ex, but to me it sounds like he still has feelings for her. He even talked about her on your first date? I think you need to ask him whether he's 100% over her, because it seems like he may not be. Don't ignore it, bring it up
