I met the guy I’m dating, we’ll call him ‘Rob’, when he was still with his ex wife. I considered both him and his ex wife good ‘acquaintances’ until a few months ago when I found out they had recently divorced and that’s when I began dating ‘Rob’.
This wouldn’t be an issue except for I just got a new job at a salon- and I found out Rob’s ex wife, who I still consider a friendly acquaintance- goes there REGULARLY! When I saw her she gave me a huge hug and said we HAVE to go for drinks sometime. She has no idea I’m with her ex husband!
I know that she’s dating someone else now.. but I also know she and Rob don’t speak. What do I do? Do I fess up and tell her I’m seeing her ex husband? Or do I keep it on the down low? It’s so awkward to be at work when she’s there!
