My ex just emailed me via Facebook. Should I reply?

An old flame just contacted me through Facebook but I’m in a relationship and happy. Or I thought I was until I heard from my ex. Is it cheating if I respond or meet up with him knowing there might still be sparks? B

Well, it’s halfway there, isn’t is? Social media sites have created a lot of murky ground in my opinion, not to mention facilitating all kinds of crappy behaviour. My rule of thumb is quite simple: if you’re attached and thinking about doing something you’d be uncomfortable telling your partner about, you probably shouldn’t do it. And if you often want to do things you’d be uncomfortable telling your partner about, you probably shouldn’t be in a relationship. It’s not rocket science, kids.
Love, reality chick

    “Is it cheating if I respond or meet up with him knowing there might still be sparks?”

    Not yet. But you’re opening the door to the possibility of cheating. And the fact that you’re even asking this question should tell you something about your current relationship.

    it’s not yet but it will be based on what you’ve said. if you love your guy then just say “hi, nice to here from you, all’s well, hope it’s the same for you”. anything beyond that and you really need to reasses either your feelings fro your guy or you moral character….
