Sex & the Single Woman: Case of the Ex . . . and His New Woman

I have a nasty little habit where I really like a guy (or get along well with an ex, as this case happens to be) and when I meet his girlfriend . . . I really like her.

I am not afraid to admit that I am the jealous type, especially when it comes to guys I am close with having girlfriends. Naturally, I assume that I won’t like the girlfriends, so I prepare for the worst.

And then I meet them.

I usually like them.

Whaaaaa?

This confusion can only be attributed to their obvious fine taste in women. Okay, maybe I’m tooting my own horn here, but I feel like if I can like the ex’s girlfriend, they can’t be that bad. Hopefully when I meet a guy’s ex-girlfriend, she feels the same way about me.
