His ex is still around
   Adapted from a recent online dis-
cussion.
   Dear Carolyn:
                                                         HI, CAROLYN
   I began dating someone about three
months ago. Things are going really
well (we're 30).
   My problem is that his ex is very
intertwined in his life. They broke up
about a year and a half ago, his deci-
sion, after dating three years, and
have remained friends. They have
close mutual friends (some of whom
are also my close friends ... that's how
we met), and his mom, brother, aunts,
uncles and cousins are her Facebook
friends, post on her wall, etc.
   I know there's nothing going on                        By Carolyn Hax
