If you were with someone for a very long time and things ended on good terms, it can feel quite sad to just sever ties. That person became a part of your family, he got to know all of your quirks, likes, and dislikes, he was with you through hard times and good times, and for a while, he was your best friend. You have inside jokes together. You hated and loved the same friends. You had traditions. So once you break up all of that just…goes away? Well, it doesn’t necessarily have to go away when you break up. But it sort of does have to go away when you get into a serious relationship with somebody new. So if you have a new boyfriend and don’t want to let go of your friend with your ex, you might be thinking, “Maybe I can get the two to meet! They’ll hit it off! Then I can have everything I want.” Nuh-uh. Doesn’t work that way. Your partner and your ex will never like each other and here is why.
They’ve both had sex with you
Two men who have both had sex with you just cannot like each other. It makes their skin crawl to be around one another. Your boyfriend won’t even notice what a nice, funny guy your ex is—he’ll be too busy picturing him having sex with you.
