Lingering exes always cause problems. There are no if ands or buts about it. They are known for stirring up drama and preventing you from moving on. If you’re a guy, your new girlfriend will never trust you because you hang out with your ex, and she will think its signs of an affair. You can have the best of intentions, but it wont matter. Also an ex will prevent a girl from getting close to you because they will think that you’re not over them. If you’re a girl, then a guy will get jealous and possessive around you and when you go out because he will think that you’re thinking about cheating on him. He will never fully trust you because he knows what guys are capable of because he knows what he is capable of. Your relationship will be more stressful than necessary for something that could be very easily prevented. My advice for this situation is to discard the ex and don’t let them linger in the future. You’re life and theirs will be better off this way. Relationships end for a reason. It’s time to cut ties and move on.
