Charlie Sheen has taken a break from the spotlight and his ‘winning’ days, but he hasn’t taken a break from his exes.  On Saturday, Sheen bailed out his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, from jail on charges of cocaine possession and assault.  According to RadarOnline, Sheen stepped in when Mueller’s parents wanted to keep her in jail.  Sick of her irresponsible ways, Mueller’s parents are fed up with her.  Good thing for Mueller, Sheen still cares for her.  Could this be a sign of the two starting up a new relationship again, or just a favor for an old love?

How do you support your ex without overstepping?

Cupid’s Advice:

Helping an ex without meddling in their life or rekindling an old flame can be tricky.  Here are some things to remember:

1. Ask: It may seem dumb to ask someone for help when they obviously need it, but asking shows that you want to help instead of making your ex feel incompetent.

2. Draw the line: While helping out an old love is nice, make sure your you let them know your boundaries. Don’t let your ex use you.

3. Stay connected: Keeping casual contact with your ex and not appearing just when they’re in trouble will let them know you care and that you’re not there to overstep boundaries.
