Author Topic: Idk if I should call it quits

I've been dating a woman for 7 months. She has an ex that follows her on social media and she follows him back. He has a way of sporadically leaving messages under her post... She doesn't seem to encourage or discourage him either. As a means to cope I told her I wouldn't look at her social media profile anymore as she said it was me being insecure.  She has an exhibit coming up next week and she is promoting it on her profile and the ex replied "this seems interesting" she responded " hope to see u there ;)" I haven't mentioned to her that I saw it because I technically told her I wouldn't look at her page anymore. My concern is I'm attending the event as well and it just seems messy for me to go.. I don't know how to address this with her without seeming insecure.

I strongly recommend you stop watching all her social media and buy a 50 cal to deal with the guy :)
No seriously, don't trust anyone who's seeing their ex. Whatever reason they have to do it, it's bullshit. There's a difference between posting on social media and actually meeting. If you go there and she's chatting with her ex like nothings wrong: find yourself a better woman.

ditto from above message. Move on! "Hoping to see you there" isn't something someone would say unless they meant it.

MOVE ON! That's so wrong on so many levels. Has nothing to do with being insecure...no one wants to be made a fool of!

Really, you're overreacting.  So what if a friend of hers said he'll see her at a place, especially when  you're going too.  Just be mature and greet him the way you'd greet any friend of a friend.  Jealousy is very unattractive.  Confidence is sexy.

     Maybe she's right to call it insecurity, but she's not doing anything to make you feel secure about it. There's not much difference between leaving doors open that should be closed and opening doors that shouldn't be opened.

     Her ex is obviously a chapter of her life. There's nothing wrong with wanting to feel that chapter is closed. As for the comment that you're being jealous... Yeah, but on a completely rational level. Maybe she isn't leading him on, but she should be firm in shutting that door with him anytime he tries to open it. And if she can't do that out of respect for you, find a new relationship bro.

On the one hand, you might be overreacting. But if she was truly vested in your relationship, she wouldn't be in contact with her ex, especially knowing that it makes you feel uncomfortable.  But I could be wrong.
