What I don't get is, why even continue to talk to your ex? Certainly you could have found something else better to occupy your time.... Like making flapjacks.
Maybe they have young kids and are trying to keep the acquaintance civil for their sake? Maybe they work together or have mutual friends? Maybe they had ended the relationship well (though I'm sure with what happened, that's about to change)? Maybe they split up recently and have to get through a bunch of legal stuff together? There are tons of reasons why it might be so :P
According to OPs username and gender, he's a guy without kids. So obviously kids are out of the picture, and divorce might be too. (I'm assuming because he could have said ex-husband instead of ex) You can leave a relationship mutually and on a good note. Who knows, maybe OP is talking to his ex because he still likes him On a side note. Flapjacks sound great.
Oh wow, good catch, I hadn't even noticed that! I still wouldn't automatically rule out the husband part though, who knows, it could have been just to keep the FML as short and sweet as possible. In any case, I just find it annoying that people who end badly with their ex feel the need to criticize people who keep a good relationship with theirs. I mean, some people have been friends with their ex for years, try dating for a few months, and it doesn't work out. If they are still on friendly terms, I don't why people feel they should suddenly stop talking to each other. I guess every case is different though :P
