Evaluate the Circumstances

girl, You don’t want to panic when there’s an ex that won’t leave your boyfriend alone. You need to be calm and approach the situation in a reasonable manner. The first thing you want to do is evaluate the circumstances. Are there good reasons for your boyfriend’s ex to contact him? If they share a child together, then there’s always going to be some contact between them. Do they have some old business they need to discuss such as a shared credit card or something similar?


Observe Your Man

eyewear, sunglasses, glasses, vision care, snapshot, This one is important. Observe your man when his ex contacts him. How does he act? This can tell you if you have anything to worry about or not. If he doesn’t like to talk to her and acts aggravated or frustrated when she contacts him then relax; he doesn’t like it any better than you do. However, if he lights up when she calls or is flirty toward her then you have a problem.


Answer His Phone☎

That’s a good time to answer for him. Sometimes just letting an ex know that you’re in the picture can help. It’s a reminder that he’s moved on.


Give It Some Time 🕞

human hair color, girl, blond, mouth, song, Sometimes the best thing to do is give it time, especially if it’s not happening constantly. His ex may get the hint and stop contacting your boyfriend on her own. She may just need to see that he’s with you now and you’re not going anywhere. Patience can pay off in this situation. That all depends on how extreme her actions are.


Ask Him to Handle It

human hair color, blond, beauty, lady, chin, If his ex is truly an issue then something needs to be done. The best way to handle this is for you to not handle it at all. She’s not going to listen to you and in fact, may up her attempts to connect with your boyfriend to spite you. The best solution is for your boyfriend to put a stop to it. If he doesn’t want to end his contact with her then that’s a red flag.


Trust Your Gut

photo caption, mouth, film, lip, song, Intuition or gut feelings are seldom wrong. What’s your intuition telling you? Is the issue mainly on the part of his ex? Or is it possible he’s not ready to sever his ties with her? These’re difficult questions to ask yourself but it’s important to be real here. You deserve your own honesty.


Exit the Situation

photograph, black and white, beauty, monochrome photography, photography, If the situation isn’t one where he needs to have contact with her then you may decide it’s best to exit the situation. That’s a decision only you can make. You deserve someone who only has eyes for you. You also deserve someone who will follow appropriate boundaries when it comes to your relationship. Don’t settle for anything less.

It’s difficult to deal when your boyfriend’s ex won’t leave him alone. Are you in this situation? You’re welcome to share.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Current situation. My bf and his ex have a kid together, but shes cheated on him too many times to count, left him stranded to go party with other guys. Then found out he was talking to me and all of a sudden loves him and wants him back. He told her straight out, "I want to be with her(me), I don't want to be with you". I was there when he told her, but she just doesn't get it. I'm in a horrible position, I don't want be the reason he can't see his son if she's that type or person. I to have a kid, and every kid deserves their dad in their life, unfortunately for my daughter, her dad and I will never be together again. Only thing I'm certain of, I will not allow his son to be let down, and if that means giving my bf up and my happiness and love, I will, because that little boy deserves him more than me or his ex and needs him more than I ever will. Tough situation. Advice?

what if his ex is known to be extremely violent in the past ? and he’s telling me i should be scared of her.

I think it is sinister that he keeps her naked pictures. I find it totally unacceptable.

Always a difficult thing to handle.

This is literally happening now. My boyfriends ex found out we are going out and started venting to him..I'm trying not to care since he told me right away that she texted him, but idk, I feel so weird and idk what to do

Oh no no no. He needs to get rid of those pictures. Creepy, sinister and disrespectful. 

My boyfriend ex keeps calling him begging him to come back he claims he's done
