DP's sister is obsessed with his ex GF. They have kids together & DP's sister dislikes the ex, but still manages to keep track of ex's life & feed this back to DP. DP is very good at telling his sister that he's not interested & that it's all irrelevant to his life. But I'm getting pretty fed up with hearing about it. DP's sister & I get along fine, we're not best friends, we haven't swapped numbers etc but we're friendly enough to each other. It's really quite bizarre. Anyone else have this?

How long have you been with DP? If it's early days i am sure it is something that will pass.

I'm going through a situation with ex as we have kids and his sister and I have had some argumentative words towards each other but what I realise is that my ex is the instigator in it all. He plays everyone against each other. She obviously rants to him because he confides in her etc and it's a cycle but our split was recent so I am hopeful this is something that will pass with time and all that will matter in the end are the children.

I know it must be irritating to hear but I would sit him down and tell him how your feeling, have you tried to talk to him and see if he can make a suggestion as how to go forward?

Op you must know some people love drama and that's what she's into.
It won't change unless you make it boring for her as in give her a indifference response.

We're in the middle of moving in together so DP thinks that once we've settled in she'll change her tune because she'll realise it's another person not giving a response to it. It's very immature & I suppose I try & avoid people who love the drama so when it can't always be avoided it's more annoying.
