Today I received a telephone call from a woman claiming to be my fiance's ex-fiance.  This woman wanted to meet with me and "share some important information".  I declined her invitation.  Were you in my place, would you mention this to your fiance?

Not only would I have a nice long talk with your fiance, but I would never meet with this person alone, in case you were still entertaining the thought.  That's a really strange phone call, did she say anything else?  And anyway, why wouldn't she talk to you over the phone about this "important information?"  Did she give you a name?

That's kind of spooky, but I think you should defenily tell your fiance, and see what he thinks, if he gets weird ask the person what they would like to share with you but over the phone, and please do not go anywhere by yourself.

Has your FH ever been engaged? Did he have a serious girlfriend who might call herself this? This sounds scary and I would DEF talk to your FH about this.Even if it is just someone screwing with you just tell him about it and then go from there. It might be a bad joke. It might be some crazy ex of his just trying to cause trouble so don't go anywhere alone with her. I hope it all works out okay.

Definitely share with your FH. Has he ever mentioned an ex-fiance? How did she find you? One thing that people sometimes don't realize is that engagement and/or wedding announcements in the newspaper can trigger these calls.

I agree- talk with your fiance and see what he says.  If she calls again and it sounds the least bit real tell her you will not meet with her but she can email you the information.  She is probably just some ex with an ax to grind...  Please let us know, though!  :)  I think it is impossible not to be somewhat intrigued...

I have to agree with the other girls, definitely share this with your FH and don't meet with this person.  If you feel that you FH is hiding something when you tell him, then I would probably want to talk to the supposed "ex-fiancée" via telephone, but only after you talk to FH about it.  Maybe she is just a jealous old girlfriend or something that doesn't want anyone else to be happy, or she could be a real psycho.  That is pretty creepy.  I hope everything works out okay in the end.

Yikes!!  That sounds creepy and stalkerish.  I'd definitely tell FH and see what he says.  I would be totally creeped out right now if I was you!  Hope you get it figured out!  EM

My fiance has an ex-fiance.  If she called me, I would say "What the hell?" I would be curious to know what she had to say, but I would not do it.

So I'm glad you declined.  My opinion?  She's probably trying to ruin his life by telling you some lie.

We have only been engaged a week and a day.  There has been no formal public announcement. She did not identify herself.  My fiance is out of town on business this week and I feel that this is not something to bring up via the 'phone.  My family is rather prominent in our town, but I, myself am not. I'm not upset or frightened. Nor do I distrust my fiance.  It's just rather interesting.

I personally think that it is a bit too coincidental that she happens to get in touch with you right after you get engaged, and just as your fiance goes out of town for a week.

Like you said, interesting.

My fiance goes out of town for work quite often.  The local gossips are, I'm sure, aware of our engagement; the people who work at the bank saw the ring come out of the safety deposit box, the people at the jewelers know that it has been sized down to fit me, plus all of our family and close friends are aware.  It is tempting to meet her, just to see who she is.

So were you aware that your FH had a previous engagement?  If you weren't I'd probably wait until he gets home and then talk to him about it, it's possible this is a prank by a old GF or someone else.  If you are aware that he had a prior engagement then I'd talk to him about what kind of woman she would and why she would be calling.  As tempting as it may be I don't think meeting her is a good idea, none of the reasons for her calling you would be good and I think this is a door best left unopened.  Also I know I wouldn't be crazy about my FH going around meeting my exes.

 

Now if your FH did have a prior engagement and didn't share that information with you I would wonder why, that's a big thing to not share-I then I might start to wonder what that woman has to say (particularly if FH is defensive about it).  I would still never meet her in person anything she had to say could be said over the phone or email (not a primary account).

I'd tell your FH and never meet this woman alone, ever.  That's just wierd and scary.
