Re: My mother still talks to my ex...
Well...my ex's entire family and group of friends still talk to me. I spend lots of time with his niece and sister, and his dad adores me. This guy totally betrayed me and his family, though, so that may be part of it. I thought about breaking contact, but they don't want to, and they tell me they'd be upset if I just disappeared.
Now, it doesn't sound at all like you did anything bad to your ex. It seems like it just didn't work out for the two of you and she's trying to hold on in some way. I've seen that many times and it really just makes the ex look kind of pathetic, to be honest. That's why I still consider breaking off contact...because I don't want to be viewed by anyone as the jilted ex who can't let go.
If it's a big deal to you, then yes, it is a big deal. And your mom should be supportive and respectful of your feelings. I would not and do not talk to my son's ex-girlfriend at all. He's my son, so he comes first with me. Period.
