Why contact the ex if you are in a new relationship? Watch

    My best friend has been broken up from her ex for 6 months now. He left her and found a new girl straight after, yet he’s still contacting my friend even though he's still with the girl. It’s something I don’t understand at all.

    When I’ve been in the honeymoon stages of new relationships the last thing I’d want to do is contact an ex. I wouldn’t be giving them a thought as I’d be too busy enjoying the new person I was with.

    By contact I mean contact from him 4-5 times a week consistently. Most the time it’s just checking in with a ‘how are you today?’ etc. And sometimes for some reason want to express how he will ‘always be here for her’ or that she is an awesome person to him.

    I don’t want her getting hurt. Why would an ex do this? Is it common?

    Honestly it could be either bad or good. As long as they are completely honest with their partner about it contacting your ex isnt as strange as it sounds, especially if they were really close. But if theyre keeping secrets and sending inappropriate messages then that's bad. Talk to your friend if your worried and find out if everything's okay and what's going on, if they say it's just a friendship thing then you have to trust them until they give you a reason not to. Hope it all works out!
