How much is too much when you are friends with an ex? Here are tell-tale signs that say you are moving towards being ‘too close’ to a former love.

Social Stalker
If you find yourself reminiscing, and indulge in social stalking — there’s a problem. From old flirty mails/messages that you take refuge in to sepia-tinted pictures together — you need to ask yourself — why?

It’s okay to be friends with a former lover, as long as you don’t cross the line. If you find yourself checking your phone at odd hours for a reply from the ex, it’s time to back off. Don’t spoil a current relationship for the thrill you might find in nostalgia.

Between the sheets
Our book shelves say a lot about us — from epic heroes we swoon over to fantastical tales. And, many of us hold on to books because of memories of the past. If you see yourself re-reading the poetry booklet your ex gave you, you need to re-consider.

Hiding hood
If you don’t tell your current flame about your closeness to the friendly ex — know that you are hiding this for a reason. And, it’s for you to realise why.
