With February’s energy and Valentine’s Day euphoria still lingering, I’ve been pouring over relationship posts in the land of Google. There were some doozys about boyfriends and husbands sending their ex-wives Valentine’s Day gifts, or making secret Valentine’s Day phone calls, and the reaction from most relationship experts was pretty predictable for this scenario. Basically, it was: “What the the hell are you doing?” Needless to say, the reactions of the new girlfriends or wives over this newly exposed revelation was pretty expected. They were devastated.
Throughout most of these articles, one thing became really clear: a boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, or a husband’s ex-wife, is not going to go away UNTIL THEY TELL THEM TO. And if a boyfriend or husband is shielding and protecting inappropriate or compromising communication with their ex, keeping it a secret from their present partner or wife, there can only be disaster ahead. Nothing in this modern world of technology is going to stay secret forever, and when the secret is out, it will hit the fan. If boyfriends and husbands are happy with their new partners, they better appreciate what they have and put all their effort and energy into protecting what they have… or they might lose it.
