Our expert says:
Some people do indeed have an amicable / friendly divorce. Sounds like your boy may still hope that you and his father will get together again ( kids often do ) and the fact that you are still friendly, may make this seem more likely to him --- so he is more sensitive to the idea of any new man becoming a friend, which would make it less likely that his dad might move back in. DOn't you have to just talk this over with him, calmly and gently, explaning that his father is still a good friend of yours, but that you two are not going to get back together again, whether or not you have other man friends, and that you don't want to avoid having other friends, and you don't believe his father wants this either. Maybe have a friendly word with your ex, who could help to discuss this with the boy
