Wow. Hope you expressed to her how disrespectful that was after the fact, since she was clearly to dense to understand that in the first place.
Was she okay with this?? I assume he was just being a prick but what do I know.
You know, It is okay for ex anything to be friends even though they may no longer be together. Some people realize they are better off as friends and split up. Now in his defense, she should have said something to the effect of her ex does still come around, but strictly on a friend to friend basis. In this instance he was unaware, therefore possible threatened by his presence. Obviously I could be wrong by not knowing OP's female companion on a personal level, but there is always that possibility.
#27, it's one thing to still be friends with your ex-partner, and a whole other thing to invite yourself out to dinner with them on a date. That's intrusive and weird. Obviously we don't know if OP's date was okay with this which is a pretty important piece of the puzzle.
I would have asked him to leave. And when I say ask, I mean tell him to get the fuck out. He's her ex, and doesn't really have the right to interfere with her or your date night. I really hope you didn't pay for his mean, even if it was a petite salad.
Everyone's saying that OP should have told him to leave, which i agree with, but what about his date?? Shouldnt she have been the one to make the guy leave? and if he didnt listen to her then OP step in to put some sexy authority into the situation? and then the ex woulda left and the girl would have been so infatuated with the way OP handled things, and then they'd go home and make sweet, sweet lov-- hmm i think i got a little sidetracked... what was i saying?
I would have used this to my advantage. Exactly why is he an EX? What information about their marriage failure could you have discovered? He obviously knows things about HER that you do not. What is HIS side of the story? What are her shortcomings?
Yea, I prefer to learn about someone from my own personal experiences with them. Not everyone is the same with every person, and her ex is going to most likely be pretty biased, and not the right person to ask. especially when it sounds like he was trying to sabotage her date.
