Ex wife and league question? - 10-25-2009, 10:14 PM

Hey everyone what would you do if someone you knew played in a league that you ran and they invited your ex wife to league? Now I know that the place is a public place but there is more to this. What if the person that invited your ex wife decided they wanted to put her on their team next season?

Just want to see what everyone's reaction would be or what they would suggest to handle the situation. I doubt very seriously that anyone that I try to date would want my ex wife playing in the league that I operate.

People have different relationships with their ex-wives. Some become friends, strangers, mild enemies, or very bad enemies. Seeing your ex might bring up bad memories and make you play not so well, or it might not bother you. Seeing your ex so much, especially playing pool with her might really mess up you head even when you go home. Many lady friends aren't too happy about the ex being around either.

I guess it is different for everyone.

I don't have a problem playing pool when she is playing pool doesn't really bother me.

I just don't really want to hang out with her if you know what I mean...there is a reason she is an EX!

I mean I haven't been going to the places she frequently plays pool at simply because I don't want to tread on her turf, and I don't want to hang out with her.

Also the girl I am dating isn't too cool with her showing up there or even wanting to play. And I doubt very seriously that many woman would approve of her playing in the league.

Ex-Wife and LO - 10-25-2009, 11:04 PM

Hi I have just a humble opinion but here goes
I play pool at league because that is where I get better and I play for great enjoymeny we have a saying on all of the teams I play on (3) "NO DRAMA" if you cannot leave it someplace else don't come
Now You as a LO may look at it different but you should not!! if you can get along civilly then 3 hours should be set aside to JUST HAVE A BLAST
our LO's Ex plays NO DRAMA so it is pretty Kewl here in Dallas
Remember this is just MHO

if it's going to bother you than i guess it wouldn't be too out of line to ask her to not play. if she insists on it then you should just try to ignore it.

If the guy she's showing up with was banging her before she was your ex, then it''s a problem. If not, live and let live. You will look petty if you exclude her.

Your girlfriend needs to understand that past is past and your ex lives in that town, unless you were banging the gf prior to divorce, then it's a problem.

Live and let live. Suck it up and at least look like the bigger person, even if you don't feel like it.

Ignore her, don't let it bug you. Tell your girlfriend to act like she isnt even there.

It'll drive her away, shes probably just there to piss ya off.

Best thing I learned from an ex was to kill her with kindness, just be overly nice and dont show that it bothers you, basically fake it til you make it or you could get drunk and just make a fool of yourself.

I'd find out wat your ex likes to do besides pool league, and I'd show up there with 3 smokin hot hookers, and just hang out and be very cordial.

it does work.....she will ignore you at first, then call you the next night.

This is NOT a unique situation, and if you play leage long enough, you see a few of these situations between ex GFs and wives come up. The fact is that people develop relationships over the years, and have friends that were friends when they are BF/GF and husband/wife before, during, and after the relationships.

I've seen quite a few of these 'reunions' and how they go over depends on your individual relationship at the present time, if any.

Oh, and TBH don't kid yourself to think that a league player that hardly knows you WOULDN'T try to date your ex wife, either. When you play in a largely male dominated league have a single woman...it usually a matter of time before someone 'will try'. I'm not trying to make you uncomfortable, but I've seen it all play out before.
