Editor’s Note: Crosswalk’s Singles Advice is an advice column for singles featuring an anonymous question from a Crosswalk reader with a thoughtful, biblical reply from one of our single contributors.
My boyfriend recently told me that his ex-girlfriend added him on Snapchat the other night. It threw me for a loop and I’m not sure what to say. I closed off pretty quickly because I wasn’t sure.
My boyfriend said that he thinks she’s just being mature and it would be nice if he could be friendly with their old mutual friends but I don’t like it. He said if I told him to delete her he would but I feel like that should be a him decision.
It sounds like their relationship was very toxic and I don’t know why he would reintroduce that into his life. Please help. I don’t want to turn to Cosmo or vogue advice. I need sound Christian guidance.
Hi, there! This sounds like a really tough problem has entered your relationship. Of course, before Snapchat, couples definitely struggled with drawing boundaries with exes whether they had dated them previously, or married them and later divorced.
