My fiancee has been divorced for 25 years and has been in and out of many relationships. All were ended by the men. She still is "friends" with most of these men and emails them occasionally. She always invites them to events and activities that we are going to attend. She has about 70 male friends and 15 female friends. One ex she talks with at least once every day on the phone. Invariably, we almost always run into one to several of these men. She drops our conversation and immediately gives them her full attention. She has admitted that her behavior is rude to me. She also likes talking to and meeting men when I am with her. Lately, when she talks to me, she doesn't pay attention and tunes me out by looking at some object or something else that is going on around us. When she does talk to me she usually looks off to my side and hardly ever in my eyes anymore. I have talked with 6 different women about this problem and everyone of them has advised me to break the engagement and leave her. Your opinion would be appreciated. Help
