Recently, Daily Mail headed to Washington Square Park here in NYC to ask people what advice they would give their exes’ new partners. As you might expect, replies ranged from funny to angry to bitter with a few well-wishes in between.
One young man in a set of shades clearly has a lot to say about his ex, who he made no secret of finding to be a lot of work. ‘Get ready for extreme high maintenance!’ he says. ‘Do not touch her hair, do not touch her make-up. Make sure everything is clean and perfect the way she likes it, or there will be some problems.’
‘He will cheat on you too!’ declared one green-haired woman.
Another young lady seems hesitant at first to dish on her ex’s flaws, saying that she doesn’t ‘want to be mean about him’, but is soon enough letting them fly. She goes on to echo the other interviewee’s sentiments, implying their her ex is high maintenance, saying that his new partner should be sure to make things ‘less about you and more about him’.
So, what about you? What advice would you give your ex’s — or exes’ — new partner(s)?
