Why do ppl find the "ex" a good conversation?
Yes, this. There was a guy that I met from here who, in every single conversation we had, he managed to wiggle his ex into it. I told him once that I wasn't interested in her hearing about her and his response was he only brought her up if he didn't feel like he could personally relate to the conversation (such as me having a child. He didn't have one but his ex did). I said okay, but I don't want to hear about her.
He acted like he understood and we met up face to face and whaddya know? At some time during the evening, here comes the ex again. The whole night was pretty crappy but that definitely contributed to me not wanting to see him again past that night. After that, I just quit. And the best part is this guy was/is 30 years old. Thirty years old.
