So, this one might seem like a stupid question, but I know I'm too emotionally involved to see clearly on this one:
I recently moved away from my friends and family for a temporary (2 year) work opportunity. Among the people I left back home were an Ex who I am still in love with, and a close female friend who I regularly contact via phone/email.
A while ago, my friend mentioned that she was going on a date with Ex. While, obviously his wasn't pleasant news to me, I figured she was just trying to be upfront. I replied in a 'thats ok' kind of way (to let her know I wouldn't hate her for it, or something daft), then changed the subject.
Unfortunately, my friend has felt the need to keep up with these 'updates' about their relation ship, despite my repeated beandipping, culminating in tonight. We had said we'd talk on the phone tonight. She sends me an email earlier today day, saying she is going to ex's house because he is cooking her dinner, so she'll be later than we said, but she'll call when she gets home. At the appointed hour, I get another email, apparently she's not going to make it home tonight after all, she's staying at his place.
My head says that they of course have every right to do whatever they want with whoever, and my heart says I want to smash plates/sob into a huge bowl of chocolate ice-cream (I probably wont actually do any of these things).
So, I need to say something to her to stop this before it drives me crazy. I don't want the awkwardness to ruin our friendship, but I really can't cope with hearing about what my ex is doing with a new woman, it's heartbreaking. Every time I try to work out what to say I think I'll burst into tears, or make her feel guilty. I feel like I can't ask her not to mention her new boyfriend at all, but I don't need to know they're probably 'playing scrabble' right now, if you know what I mean?
I know they are not doing anything wrong, but I just can't handle it.
