  • No, i dont think it would be appropriate and i dont think DH would like that. I guess if i wasnt married then maybe.

  • I could not do that. I am sure my dh would not exactly be thrilled and my dh is the most important to me.

  • Not appropriate. And YES my DH would care. Very much. lol I wouldn't want to anyway. Why would someone want to go on a date with their ex when they have their SO?

  • Sure, though I don't think I could refer to it as a date, lol

    A couple of my closest friends are ex's- we just weren't long term compatible, not all relationships end badly :)

  • A date?! I think a SO would definitely mind. Yet if it was just something like coffee or dinner to talk and nothing more it would depend on your SO opinion. Best thing to do in that situation, talk to your SO about it FIRST.

  • No, as a married woman I would not go on a date with anyone other than my DH. I know DH wouldn't want me doing something like that and I wouldn't want him to either.
