    i need some advice/help - does anyone keep in touch with thier ex and when you do talk is it ever petty/spiteful? also, could you give me some insight to why he might be like that...thanks in advance

    I do. And no, we're very rarely spiteful to each other. We're good friends.

    The only reasons I can think of as to why he might be nasty to you is that he doesn't want to be friends any more, he misses you, he still likes you and he wants to move on and forget you or maybe he's got another girlfriend. Or if you have a boyfriend, he might be jealous?

    Either way, if I were you I'd keep your distance from him and leave him alone.

    The only reason I can think of is the amount of **** they went through for nothing. It's not spiteful per se but I know I feel incredibly uneasy around a certain girl I used to know.

    I think staying friends with an ex is a good idea, it can lessen the pain of a relationship ending.
    Plus, you must have liked them to start dating anyway.

    I have a few i kept in contact with purely because we are good mates now, others i dont really talk to but i wouldnt say i have any bad feeligns towards them and i think it is the same back, it is just i dont have anything to talk to them about anymore.

    If he is going to be spiteful to you i would leave him and not talk to him, he is not part of your life so much anymore so you dont need the extra hassel of dealing with him, it could be for any reason he is being awkward towards you, best just to leave him.
