My boyfriend keeps texting his ex-girlfriend but claims they're just friends

DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend is always on the phone with his best friend – a woman he briefly dated two years ago.

I’m 25, he’s 27 and we’ve been dating for a year.

He met this woman, now 26, at college.

They dated for three months until they both moved away. Now she’s “like a sister” to him.

We moved in together last month. Before then, I hadn’t realised how often he speaks to her.

If they’re not video calling, they’re texting – the conversation is constant.

Also, he always takes her calls in the other room.

I love that he’s got a really close friend but I wonder if there is more to it.
