Is texting your ex a form of cheating?
Their dilemma said: “I found out my partner has been texting their ex.
“They say they’re just friends but I don’t know how to feel about it.”
Ask the Aunties: Their response
“Absolutely not—the door is closed, it’s over” says Lee.
“They’re ex for a reason,” Karnage agreed.
“Ex-pired,” Lee explained. “No ex is a friend. I feel like it’s a lack of respect. Who does that?”
“I probably wouldn’t leave them because of that, I would leave them because they could even think that that was ok,” Karnage added.
“You’re obviously not happy with what you’ve got if you have to be travelling back.”
Lee agreed: “Now you’ve got two exes.”
Ask the Aunties is an original PinkNews series. From how to deal with homophobic parents to coming out as pansexual and questioning whether there is ever a right age to realise you are LGBT+, no dilemma is left unanswered.
The previous episode answered a dilemma from a lesbian facing some wedding drama as she tries to figure out whether the concept of marriage is just too “heteronormative” or if she can stomach the ceremony for the woman she is madly in love with.
