    I had no idea but my boyfriend has been talking to his ex on - Facebook at the very least . He left his phone out when he was getting drinks and I noticed her name flash up ...didn't have time to seethe message properly but something about she thought he was ringing her that night ...!! I was so shocked I didn't say anything and when came back he glanced at his phone then put it in his pocket ... keep wrestling with this trying to write it off as innocent ... Had no idea they were still in touch although I know they had been together a while . Should I just ignore it if he seems happy with me ?

    Thank you for the insight but since when has it not been a big deal for your boyfriend/girlfriend to be ringing their ex? There's obviously a conversation gone on before that so am

    I'd even say he's not worth being around because he dares to keep something hidden from you...

    You need to ask him about it. Not confront, just ask. Say innocently that her name popped up when he left his phone the other night and you were unaware they were in contact. If he starts asking shifty then you will start to have a better picture of whats going on, but on the other hand it could just be innocent and they are trying to be civil/friends again. Like you said they were together for a while and even if they don't want to be together anymore it's hard completely cutting off someone you invested a lot of time in.

    You do need to bring it up though, as things like that left unanswered will eat away at you, and eventually it'll cause a huge argument

    You just need to calmly ask him. Dont let it blow up into an argument, chances are it is innocent, but you cant just ignore it if it makes you uncomfortable.

    If he's your boyfriend surely you're close enough to just ask him about it casually? It's fair enough to be worried about it so make sure you tell him, it's probably nothing and therefore you'll get the reassurance you want. If he gets angry that you brought it up or seems shifty then you'll know somethings up...

    No point asking him. He will say he just said hi or something
