  • I would say "I'm not your ex.....obviously lots of things didn't work for her, that's why you're not together anymore.....I want a chance to see if they work for me".

  • The ex is the past and would have to stay there if he wanted to be with me.

  • i'd tell him i won't buy him toilet paper bc your ex used it and it didn't do him any good, maybe he see what a ridiculous thing it is to say about one person

  • My husband used to do that when we were dating. One day I reached my wits end and decided I was going to show him how it felt (since he never seemed to listen when I told him how it felt)... I got my chance the next time we went to the store... He wanted something and pointed it out to me and all I said was "I can't get that because I got that for my ex and it didn't work for him". For a moment he was really frustrated and before he could get really mad I told him "it doesn't feel so great to be compared to an ex does it" he told me no and that was the end of it... He has slipped up a few more times but has made a come back in a matter of moments... i think it is because he remembers how it felt even if he wont admit it :)

  • I think he needs to bring himself into the present time and stop dwelling on his ex wife. He's in a relationship with you now and it doesn't seem fair for him to keep bringing this other person up like that. I think I wouldn't want to keep hearing about someone from his past.
