Jessica Padykula is a freelance writer and editor in Toronto, Canada covering a wide range of  topics for several online lifestyle publications. Dating someone who is still on call as his ex-girlfriend's handy man is not a good sign, especially if she knows he's dating someone new. Any jealousy he shows towards his ex's new guy speaks volumes about how much he still cares about her. Sure, your guy might just be super nice and one of those people who can't say no, but don't you think he would be jealous if the situation were reversed?
They comment on each other's Facebook photos, toss Tweets back and forth and send the occasional email or text, but if this behavior is constant, you might have a problem on your hands. If this is the case, he's likely on the rebound and shouldn't be entering into another serious relationship. There are so many other options – other male friends, going solo or even taking a female friend are all better options than roping your man into being her date. Even if he claims to merely be concerned as a friend or "big brother" figure, there's no reason for him to care who his ex is dating now that he's with you.


There is a big difference, though, between being friends with an ex and not being over your feelings for that person. Ask yourself how he would feel if you were constantly at your ex's beck and call – editing documents for him, helping him fix up his resume, giving him decor advice. Keeping in touch is OK, but a barrage of daily messages once a new relationship is in the works just seems suspicious to us.
We all talk about other people we've dated – it's part of our history after all, but hearing about his most recent ex on a regular basis hints strongly that he still has feelings for her and you should watch out so you don't end up falling for someone who isn't ready for a relationship. The same goes for work events she always used to rely on him for or worse, family functions she seems to think he should still attend even though they're no longer together.
With that in mind, we’ve put together some serious telltale signs that your current guy isn’t quite over his ex – even if he tells you otherwise. Whatever the scenario, if you're spending time with an ex, we're willing to bet your man wouldn't approve. But before you go wild with jealousy, sit down and talk to your guy about how you feel and why he's still so close to his ex.


Dating someone who is still close enough to his ex that she sees no problem inviting him to various events where she doesn't want to go alone is a very big red flag. Proceed with caution around any guy who can't or won't be happy if his ex is seeing someone new.
That's why, even if he swears he's merely being a gentleman, we say be wary of a guy who runs to help a former girlfriend every time she calls. If he won't talk about it or seems cagey with his responses, take note of the fact that your feelings are probably warranted. Ideally he won't consider going, but if he does, you need to let him know it's not acceptable – or you should consider moving on. On the other hand, it could be a good sign if he's open to discussing the issue and suggests you meet his ex to see for yourself there's nothing to worry about.
