Is It OK to Hate Your Boyfriend's Ex?

Is It OK to Hate Your Boyfriend's Ex?

Ah, the ex factor. No matter what your situation, ex-girlfriends of your current flame are hard to ignore, and they can often put a damper on the new relationship. A recent article in the UK's Mirror gives explicit instructions on how to cope with your boyfriend's ex when they are still "friends." Since we all know that remaining friends with an ex can be a bad idea, it's no wonder that many new girlfriends need some encouraging words of wisdom.

The article suggests that the new girlfriend should avoid aggression, as it's a sign of jealousy, while other people think it's OK if the ex knows you're jealous of her. I happen to think that the ex "wins" in a sense if she gets the best of you, so my motto has always been to kill them with kindness. What about you? Even though deep down we often hate our boyfriends' exes, do you think it's OK to be forthcoming with those negative feelings, or do you think it's better to just bite your tongue?
