You’re already in too deep.
You’ve fallen in love with that spark you guys ignited after you discovered the overwhelming similarities you too share. So what happens when you realized your man has not completely gotten over his ex, or there’s a frequent foreign name showing up on his caller ID? We’ve all peered behind our computer screens watching as the Chrianneuche love-triangle saga unfolds.
It even seems like, these days, we just can’t seem to rip our way out of that unnecessary glitch that sometimes finds us in what we thought was potentially the perfect relationship. Well, run as fast as you can, Vixens. Here are five ways to recognize you are in a love triangle. — Megan Guard
1. He’s still in touch with his ex
This can be the sure fire sign that you need to leave while you can. She’s an ex-girlfriend for a reason, but you still find that he can’t get her name out of his mouth. In fact, they just have to keep up with each other through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
2. Your feelings come in last place.
You’ve finally mustered up the courage to set aside your pride and let him know how you fee. He’s aware in the moment but, shortly after, has less than no concern for how you feel. In fact, he’s forgotten everything you’ve told him and he’s back to his old ways.
3. He’s always in her presence.
Some things happen by design while others are just straight up intentional. Rihanna can pledge to this after storming in on Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karreuche’s party and finding Breezy in attendance. To say the least, if you’re frequently catching him in the same room as his ex. It’s time to make a quick exit.
4. He starts hiding information from you.
Lack of trust ensues when one can’t tell the truth. If you find that his IG flicks are of his buddies and untagged females, something fishy is going on (and, no, don’t read the comments!). He may not be cheating but there is a reason why he happened to leave “her” Instagram name off the list.
5. He chooses to use his free time to be with her.
He uses the leftover time in his busy schedule to catch up with her. There’s never anything wrong to catch up with an old friend, but if you find that his top concerns are to have a tea-and-crumpet convo with an ex, there may very well be extra feelings still brewing.
