How does one go about maintaining a relationship with the family of an Ex? I don’t know how to do that without it being awkward. I kinda feel like I lost all privileges to the family when the relationship was over. This past relationship was the 1st time I had ever formed a relationship with anyone’s I’ve dated family. And I personally really enjoyed it. He also formed his own separate relationship with my family as well. But seeing as how he and I can’t seem to be friends, I don’t see how I can still talk to and hang out with his mother. I love her dearly and think she is awesome, but they live together, so think just how weird that would be. He texted me the other day to tell me his mom had been asking about me. And crazy enough, I had just been thinking about her maybe 10mins before he sent me that message. I asked him what she said, and him being the shithead the him that he’s been for the past couple of weeks responded with, “ call her and ask her yourself.” I really wanted to pick up the phone that second and call her, but then I started to think, “ How can I have a relationship with her, and not have one with him?” I don’t really know how to do that. This is all new to me. And I don’t have any issue with her at all. My issues were with him, which is why the relationship ended to begin with. He and I can’t fix what’s broken but I don’t want to take it out on his mom who clearly still cares for and about me. Hopefully I figure this out soon. She’s in my cell, all I have to do is click her name. . .
