Sometimes it’s a subtle feeling… sometimes it’s more. How to spot when your partner’s ex is a threat and not a friend.

When it comes to remaining friends with their ex’s, some singles think it’s a great idea while others cringe at the very thought. The ability to stay friends with someone you once dated is possible, but it takes a special effort and a realistic point of view.

The danger in this behavior is that they hang in a kind of “love limbo” – not seeing their past clearly and not able to truly move on with someone new.

If you’re dating someone you suspect is still tied to their ex, what should you do? Here are some common issues and how to deal with them.

Mature relationships get stronger over time. So if you’re already imaging your wedding day when you’ve only just met someone, you could be sabotaging your relationship before it even has a chance to take flight.
