Hey Besty: If you’re in a relationship, is it okay to meet the old flames?

HEY BESTIE: The old flame wants to reconnect, but I have a relationship. I was always wondering what I could do with this guy. He wiped me out of my feet, but he was always working away so we couldn’t get it to work. Is it fair for me to go see him, and should I tell my current partner?

Let’s start with the right foot. If you are currently in a relationship, that relationship should be your focus, not the old flames.

If you are dissatisfied with your current relationship, then find a way to fix it or break it altogether.

If something is happening in your life that you can’t tell your current partner, the relationship is already in trouble. Discuss your choices with trusted friends and counselors.

Now let’s talk about the “old flame”.

It may be flattering that the old flame wants to reconnect, but if you’re not looking for a new partner, rekindling the sparks isn’t ideal.

Just remembering the past can bring up ideas for freedom, “life before things” (children, financial burden, job responsibilities, etc.) and can be confusing to life. “Life before responsibility”, it’s not just your current reality.

Most people who are fooling their spouse then say they wish they could get it back.

Social media is at the top of the list of reasons why old flames will reconnect later in life.

The story is better known than you think. Let’s see if this sounds familiar. At first, the reunited couple finds each other again and enjoys a new “friendship” and reconnection. There seems to be no threat to the current relationship. Current partners may even be told about old flames, and there seems to be nothing to worry about.

Then, over time, friendship returns to romance. Old feelings are agitated again. The romance will be stronger. An innocent coffee date with an old flame turns into a secret meeting. The secret grows and turns into a lie. The incident begins.
