I have never really been the jealous type. I understand that every person has a past and most of the time, baggage from their previous relationship. What I’m trying to figure out is if I should be worried. The man that I’m with now is simply wonderful. I’m head over heals in love and see a future with him. Now the problem is, he still talks with his ex girlfriend. We are at the beginning of our relationship and they split about eight months ago. They were together for about 5 years. Most of the time she calls him but I have seen that he has called her too when I looked in his phone for a number that he asked me to get. She’s always asking him for favors even though she has a boyfriend (My bf’s old best friend that she cheated on him with) We dog sat for her over the weekend (Their old dog) while she went on vacation. When she came to pick up the dog is when we met. I introduced myself politely and she snapped her name in response, looked around me and told my bf to get her a soda. Quite frankly, I was a little peeved but I held my composer and took my DD up to bed. He stood outside and talked for about ten minutes and stood by the door as they drove off. When he came back in, I told him that there are limitations and cords that you should cut when you enter a new relationship. He does not have children with her, and she treated him like garbage. His response was, “Why can’t we all just get along? I’m friends with her bf and me and her were friends before we started dating so what’s the problem?” I don’t believe that he wants her back but I feel as though she is over stepping her boundaries and disrespecting me.

He is also good friends with his ex’s niece. From what I understand, his ex was a little suspicious of the two of them as well. She seems really nice but I’m starting to feel a little uncomfortable with how much they talk. He says that they are ‘best friends’ and when I asked about their past he has said that nothing happened between the two of them. He got REALLY defensive and said that I’m being controlling and he doesn’t need to be baby sat. Right now, I’m just a little stressed and confused as I just moved in with him three weeks ago to a new town, Longer commute, no friends and I’m starting to feel like third place regarding his ex and his ex’s niece. I don’t feel as though I am being taken seriously.

After his tantrum last night, I decided to sleep on the couch since he was ‘trying to get away from me’ when I was merely trying to talk so I could better understand their relationship. (The niece) I feel very much alone.
