Seeking Advice

OP is considering asking her out but sought his sister’s advice, who advised him to wait for his ex to make the first move.

While his ex-wife did not indicate any romantic interest, she did say none of the men in the UK could handle her as OP did.

However, her humor is generally flirtatious, so it is unclear whether she has any romantic interest.

The Dilemma

OP’s dilemma is whether he should ask her out or wait for her to make the first move.

Seeking an outside perspective, he asked for advice. 

Should He Make a Move?

If OP asked her out, he should do so without any expectations or pressure.

He should respect her boundaries and not push her to do anything she is uncomfortable with. Additionally, he should be prepared for the possibility of rejection and accept her decision gracefully.

If he decides to wait for his ex to make the first move, he should not put his life on hold or hold onto false hope. Instead, he should focus on building a happy and fulfilling life for himself. While waiting for her, he could date other people or pursue other interests.

One user said, “Let her know you’re interested. See what happens. Don’t stay silent and regret it.”

Another user urged him to cut his mother out of his life completely, saying, “Cut out your mother completely and get back with the love of your life. Make your mother choke on humble pie until she understands how horrible she was.”

What do you think? Should he cut his mother off and get the love of his life back, or try to be happy without her? Leave a comment!
