Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE -

My ex has been send­ing me lirty DMs. I’ve been ig­nor­ing them – but should I tell my cur­rent BF? I don’t want to up­set him be­cause there’s noth­ing to worry about, but I also don’t want him to think I’m hid­ing any­thing.

Your ex prob­a­bly isn’t mes­sag­ing be­cause he just wants to be friends… Since you have noth­ing to hide, be hon­est with your cur­rent bae. You don’t need to show him the mes­sages, but let­ting him know your ex has made con­tact – and that you’re ig­nor­ing him – will put your con­science at ease and let your BF know he can trust you. This is es­pe­cially NB if the sit­u­a­tion es­ca­lates – like if bae sees a DM noti—ica­tion on your phone, and feels you were hid­ing it from him. You can also tell your ex to stop mak­ing con­tact. A —irm ‘Thanks but no thanks’ re­ply to one of the DMs (and show­ing it to your BF) will send the right mes­sage to ev­ery­one in­volved.
