So my ex and I broke up about two months ago. After a very very rocky relationship I called it quits because it was VERY complicated, and I my friends am NOT a complicated person. Once I saw through the fog, it took everything in me to break things off and I did. And it has been wonderful since. Since we broke up, after feeling rather broken because I did miss her but not most of her, I began talking to another girl. It was nice. Fun. Equal! like a relationship should feel. Nothing I ever felt with this other girl. Things were complicated from the beginning and she has a temper problem. again, I am not a complicated person neither have I ever been one to complicate myself with complicated people. Seriously, i have great life friendships that I treasure because frankly, I dont make friends with assholes. Im an incredibly nice and 'go-out of-my-way' person and I think that this quality has allowed me to keep great friendships and dispose of those that take advantage of this quality. But this ex, slipped in undetected and after about 6 months of ups and downs.....done. We kept contact after the break up. She needed help, I was a phone call away. Not because shes my ex or someone I'd sleep with, but I do this with all my friends. Some of my closest friends told me it was a terrible idea to stay in contact with her because she'd take advantage of this and for a long time I would ignore her call/text and it didnt bother me or her. Then maybe a month after the breakup I found out she had started talking to someone else. Which, while it did sting a bit I was happy for her. I had moved on and she deserved it too. Well a few weeks ago, she called me and was like hey, I need a friend. So, I listened and to make an already long thread shorter, she basically told me how her and this girl had ended things and how she has never been in a relationship like the one we had. Where someone listened to her and supported her through work and school and all those adult responsibilities that suck. I listened to her for two hours go on about how all the qualities I have are what she needs in another person. While i was flattered, I thought this isnt a good idea. I dont want to complicate things again. And she was like okay, we'll see. but she left me with this idea...... So I let that soak in for 2 days. Which I HATE wasting time thinking about stuff like this because it distracts me from everything (work/school/family/this other girl i was talking to) When I know in the end we are not healthy for eachother. Yesterday she came over to my place so I could help her put some stuff together for work and she told me she was going to try and fix things with this other girl. I thought good, but after she left. I felt empty. Like a total chump. And I suddenly missed her badly and I dont even know why. I feel like, I had cleared my brain of her and she came in with a day of weakness and screwed with my head. She wont stop texting/calling me and I cant seem to stop talking to her and I hate myself for it. But I know shes playing me and I want it to stop. Because I know for a fact, that at this point she needs me more than I need her. She doesnt make me feel good about myself. She was always critical about my education choices because I would rather go to school than go into a position with more pay at my current job, but its not what I want to do. Anyways, Im a generally happy person. Im positive and always put everyone before me and like my friends said....she knows its my weakness and I feel like she used it against me. And she will continue unless I cut off contact. I dont want to block her but she blows up my phone and will call me at insane hours just to talk. Ive already told her, Im done with that and I just want friendship but she doesnt seem to respect it. She still treats us like we're an item and its such a slap in the face to me. Im really debating whether I should block her because I dont know how to say no to her and she knows this. And I hate her for this. Like, It tears me apart that she would do this but I guess Im not surprised. I try and ignore her like I had and it hasnt been working. I want to be clear of mind again and I feel like the only way I will be able to do this is by blocking her number completely. But is that a childish/selfish move? Is that petty of me? I'd love for her to get a taste of her own medicine. (she was very selfish throughout our relationship/childish/abusive) **on the abusive part, yes it got physical. She is a tiny person but packs a punch and she got mad once and tried to hit me. These were red flags I attempted to ignore but I was fed up and now i feel like I took a step back. To block or not to block??? If i was good at ignoring her text/calls I would but that hasnt been working.
