    Run away because of this one issue when everything else is good? That's not my style either. Everyone has some sort of baggage. He's a healthy intj, so overall I consider myself lucky.

    I think i look at the issue as more of a puzzle... figuring out how to deal with this type of person. whether we break up or not, there will be people in my life I don't relate to but will have to deal with.

    Yeah, we all need to make our own choices. I have absolutely no patience for manipulative, controlling, drama types...nor people who do. There are relatives I haven't seen or spoken to in decades for that very reason.

    Life's infinately more peaceful and enjoyable without them.

    In work, in community organizations etc. like tends to attract like and there are dominant elements to almost any given environment. I prefer to seek out places where I naturally fit vs. circumstances where I find myself put out in accomodating others.

    This is a common trap. But very dangerous.

    Yeah, I strongly disagree with the people who are saying you should break up with your bf over this. I think that's going way too far if everything else is satisfactory about the relationship.

    It's not his fault if his ex is bff's with his sister.

    My favorite analogy...it's akin to pushing a boulder up a steep hill solo.

    To me the idea that a person finds themself in scenarios where they have to deal with the ex- at all. Shows a complete and utter lack of EQ.

    But it is kind of fun to watch people run for hot stoves; and wonder why or how they got burnt?

    I don't think that the OP is the person who lacks EQ.

    Your judgments are overly simplistic. I think learning to handle rather than avoid situations that cause stress, learning to cope with issues such as these, and being civil with an ex are all signs of emotional maturity.
