My husband is also really good friends with one of his exgirlfriends. They ultimately decided that they made much better friends. When I met my husband he told me all about her and has mentioned the word "love" in reference to her, but he assured me it was only as he would love any of his friends (and he is a wonderful friend). Even though she lived in another state they talked all of the time for hours on end. They were very close. The first time she came out here when we were dating he insisted I go out with them and meet her. He knew that if I met her I would fall in love with her too. Now, I have to admit, I was intimidated. I mean, they had 10 years of history and we had been dating 2 months. But he was right. She is a great person and now one of my best friends.

But enough about my situation. I would be intimidated too if I were in your situation. I mean, who would be comfortable with their boyfriend comparing his past relationship with their own? I think it's normal to be intimidated by opposite sex friendships (especially with exes) that you don't know much about. But have you met her yet? I have a feeling that if you actually meet her and get to know her you will see that they are friends for a reason. All his (badly chosen) words may be an effort to try to get you to see that she is a great friend to him. If you really do care for him then try to get to her and their friendship. The more you know the less intimidated you will feel. At least, that was how it was for me.
