Dear Coleen

I have feelings for an ex boyfriend after he visited me a few weeks ago. I hadn’t seen him for a few years as he lives and works abroad so I invited him to my husband and I for dinner.

Seeing him brought back all the good memories of our time together, plus he looked amazing and is doing really well in his career.

Also, he is currently single. I know it’s bad but I couldn’t help but compare him to my husband who I’ve been through lockdown with – he put up with his poor personal hygiene, questionable casual wear and general laziness.

Ever since I saw my ex I can’t stop thinking about him and imagining what it would be like to be with him again.

I have written to him a few times since then to keep in touch. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m so bored in my marriage and my husband doesn’t bother.

Can you blame me for lusting after my hot ex?

And am I wrong in hoping that this rekindled friendship will lead to romance again?

Coleen says

I think you’re playing in your own rom-com here. Yes, he looks great and he’s successful, but you don’t know what it would be like to live with him every day. He could be an idiot.

If you’re not happy with your man, tell him how you feel—that you’re bored and that you feel like he’s not making an effort. And ask him what he’s going to do about it.

It’s easy to get sucked into “the good old days” – my sister Linda’s 60th birthday a few years ago was my first love. I hadn’t seen him in almost 30 years. I was 16 again straight away and it was beautiful.

I just wanted to sit with him and feel young again. So, I think if I was at an unhappy point in my relationship, maybe it would have sparked something in me. But an ex is an ex for a reason.

Lockdown has been tough on relationships – many of us didn’t bother as there was nothing to do and nowhere to go. But try to imagine if your husband weren’t there – how would you feel?

At some point, your relationship must have been great, so take off those rose-colored glasses and work on breaking out of the rut. Sometimes it can’t be fixed, but try. You can find that spark again if you’re both willing to try, but it won’t just magically reappear.
