Dating ex boyfriends roommate

I also decided not to immediately tell dates I was living with an ex, because I realized that if someone I liked was doing the same thing, it would make me jealous. However, one guy who I ended up casually seeing for a few months was totally cool with it.

Yes, the truth must come out sooner or later, but it’s important to feel out the appropriate time to reveal it., my first instinct was to confide in Garrett.

We needed space from each other, despite sharing the same living space.

Within a few months, we stopped hanging out in public.

While our breakup was mutual, no one likes to hear about their ex’s romantic and sexual exploits. When Garrett mentioned a girl he was dating, I would be encouraging on the outside but uneasy on the inside.

Yet we kept on trying to make it work until the girl who Garrett had been dating for a few months gave him an ultimatum: either move out and away from me or they were over.

A fresh start wasn’t enough to reinvigorate our fizzling relationship.

I wouldn’t say that we were unhappy, but we were pretty much just trudging along. We wondered whether we were too young to settle — or to settle down.When Garrett and I broke up, we had 10 months left on our lease.In an attempt to ride it out, we established clear rules, most of which were meant to ensure we acted respectfully toward each other.I suspect I could have avoided that pain had we had some distance.We still cared for each other, and once Garrett moved out, we were able to channel those feelings into a sort of a friendship.
