We all have an ex-boyfriend hidden somewhere. Lucky for many of us they have moved on and don’t bother us too much or we have resolved any hidden feeling and can be friends. I started dating someone who lives with his ex-boyfriend. I was a little cautious at first but was re assured they were 100% broken up and there was nothing to worry about.
I was cool with this until last week. Suddenly the guy has forgotten they aren’t dating anymore and is telling the guy I’m seeing that he is cheating on him. He goes on to tell him that he has been waiting for the last 9 months for him to climb in bed with him and he hasn’t. My guy calms him down by reminding him they aren’t dating. This works for a day or two. Next the ex says he has made an appointment for couples counselling. The guy I’m seeing told him they aren’t a couple. He breaks down and says he is going to see the therapist himself.
He comes back from the session with hope in his eyes. Seems the therapist is an old friend of his and has told him what he is feeling is valid. He looks at the guy I’m seeing and tells him if he forgets about me all will be forgiven and they can move forward. He starts crying. He then tells him he is going to visit his family and wants him to come with. He says no.
After being told numerous times they are not a couple have not been a couple for several months the guy seems to get it but in the morning the ex-boyfriend asks for a kiss and tells him they are going to be just fine.
Finally the guy cracks and tells the guy I’m seeing that while he is living under his roof he cannot date anyone at any time. He moved out November 1st.
My response to the whole thing is I get it, you fucked up and lost a really great guy and now that you see him moving on you want what you lost. Making his life miserable is not going to win him back. It’s time to move on and give the guy a chance.
Do you have a psycho ex-boyfriend? Have you been a psycho ex-boyfriend?
