You fought and he called his ex the next day?

She's either a really close friend (highly unlikely) or they are still seeing each other. Happened to me...

It could be many reasons. Don't jump to conclusions. It could be to ask advice. So don't worry unless you know for sure if hes cheating. Don't worry your pretty little head. It will be all right. Just chill. Hang out with some friends, go shopping, watch some movies and forget your worries k darls. He must have male friends or someone else he can talk too and running to his ex is sending you a signal to hurt you. He's mad! Perhaps he has a right to be, but he's being immature about it and so are you. It takes two to communicate so if you don't want to lose your boyfriend phone him up and simply say, 'Let's talk.' Don't yell, accuse or scream. Talk out your problems because you'll have to do this the rest of your life no matter if it's a boyfriend, husband, relative, friend, boss or coworkers. It's always wise to let him get his point across then you say what you have to say and then take a little of each other's opinions to come to a resolution to the problem.
