  • I dont think you should leave him over this. He isnt cheating on you. Lots of people do this. They have a private reality life behind closed doors, but once they go outside they put on their happy face for the world. Imagine if he was sitting on the steps and being consoled by her, that would have been worse. He was being neighborly, he didnt bring his personal problems up, he was just saying hi to her. I dont think he could possibly care about her like he does with you, he is with you, not her.

  • Remember that your hormones are crazy right now and that you will have much stronger reactions to your emotions than normal. That being said it depends on what your relationship with this guy is like now. If you are supposed to be in a monogamous relationship with him then sit him down and explain that while you do trust him (if you do) that you don't feel it is appropriate for him to be talking to a girl he was messing around with before. If he gets angry or defensive I'd say it's time to leave. If he understands or just gets frustrated then more talking and actions will speak in the following days. If you have a solid relationship and you trust him then hear him out. If you don't only you can make the choice of what you should do. I wouldn't stay, but that's because I did stay with my exhusband and only really bad things came from it. I've lived and learned.
