Do you like her? Do you guys get along, or do you not talk? My ex has met a new girl, and I am kind of offended, because she has not introduced herself to me. I think that is a little rude since she will be around my kids. What do you guys think? This is the first girl that my ex has been with since we have broken up so I don't really know how to feel about things. Does it get easier. Sorry if my post is all over the place. I am just a little thrown off by all of this.Answer Question

I don't know OP, she may not have an interest, she may be uncomfy, it is hard to say. I can tell you, my parents have both been re married for about 8 and 9 years now. My mother has NEVER said one word to my father's wife, NOT ONE WORD. When they have been at my wedding or my children's birthday parties, they just do not communicate. Honestly it just WORKS for them, for my mom was VERY BITTER after the divorce. She talks to dad now, but just kind of pretends his wife doesn't exist.
Have you tried asking your ex about it?

I got lucky my ex and I talked about a few things after we broke up and new SO is something we talked about and laid ground rules for. We both agreed that unless the new SO was the one or was someone that would be around even after a break up than they did not meet our kid. I asked him if he wanted to meet my husband when I first started realizing he was the one. I also ask him to meet any step mommy material. It is really on you and your ex to talk it out and let your new partners know how things work with you two and what their role will be. If that includes you meeting his new girlfriend than you need to ask him. She may not be coming up to you because she does not feel it is her place, or she may be worried about upsetting you.
