Good men and women stay in touch with their exes because their exes are kind people with whom they share a lot of history.
What you forget when you’re jealous of the ex is that there’s a REASON they broke up.
There are reasons why they can’t be together romantically. Just because your boyfriend’s friend happens to own ladyparts doesn’t mean he wants to leave you for her.
And obviously, there are reasons why he chose you as a romantic partner.
If you don’t trust him because you’re insecure about his friendship with his ex, you’re only going to accomplish the following:1) You’ll make him feel like crap because his own girlfriend doesn’t trust him.

He said he’s not attracted to her and so on, but I just don’t like the idea of him hanging out with her, what if he invites her over for dinner, etc?
