There are some people who will tell you that once a couple breaks up they should just move on and have no contact with each other. There are some people who believe that even after a break up two people can still be friends and it wont effect future relationships. I think I fall somewhere in the middle. I think that being actual "friends" would just be too hard but I also don't think you have to be a total jerk and be cold and ignore them. It's hard enough to try to divvy up all the shared friends you have, then if you have kids and or pets, it can just be impossible to completely shut that person from your life. This is where today's dilemma begins.

Here is what our listener wrote in: "I've been dating this guy for about 4 months and he is great! I mean in almost every way I could even see marrying this guy. My friends and family love him BUT I don't think he's over his ex. All he does is tell me how horrible she was and he's so glad it's over BUT I noticed he always replies to her text messages and just last week he watched her dog while she was out of town. He's says it's only because he loves the dog but come on. Is this something we can work through together or should I leave and hope it'll work out down the road when he's finally over her?"
As always, we got great input on this dilemma from the callers, just press play here to hear what they said.
