    Correct. I like the idea of having a good relationship with my ex for DS' sake, but in my opinion it's actually healthier for DS to not be witness to his father verbally abusing me and putting me down for the way I look and behave etc.

    Haha it can be just as uncomfortable the other way too - when DD's Dad had a new partner (they have since broken up) she treated me like one of the family when we'd only just met - gave me a big hug and kiss whenever she saw me, introduced me to her Dad (who was also over-the-top friendly), added me to FB, made me a christmas present... it was so weird!

    Lol, I'm not sure which would be worse Shelle! I really like my exes other half, we've had our moments but we've generally got along. She even went to me for advice when ex was reverting back to his old ways, that was awkward! She was with XDP while I was pregnant (an affair) but I find it so hard to hate her because I know how much of a predator he is and he would've pursued her until she caved. But I still don't want to be around them, I like to pretend he doesn't exist.
