The last few months were rough because his grandmother passed away after being in the hospital for a few months. I tried to be there for him but he totally withdrew and would reject my advances and we started fighting a lot because of it. He told me he loves me, but felt like I was smothering him and he needed to find himself.

Unfortunately, when we do run into our most recent ex-boyfriend, sometimes that really does happen.

So, I went to the most trusted of friends for advice, my dad.
Jan 6, Getty I dated this guy from to , and everything ended amicably. Even after the breakup, we hooked up twice that summer. Well, in November , he got into a relationship, as did I. He and I remained friends on Facebook, and occasionally I would like a funny status he posted or whatever. In April , his girlfriend attempted to add me on Facebook. I declined, and told her I wasn’t going to add my ex’s current girlfriend and she had no reason to worry about anything. She accused me of name-calling and all this crazy nonsense, and said that I needed to grow up and leave her man alone even though once he was in a relationship we stopped talking.
Fast-forward to October and I found out she was stalking me on Twitter and I called her out on it. She and my ex broke up, and he and I have actually started talking and rekindling our relationship I’m single now. However, now the stalking has gotten even more severe. I could block her, but when people are crazy, they will find plenty of ways to snoop. I want to address her and tell her to quit and leave me alone, but I don’t know how to go about it.
Archer Advertisement When your ex boyfriend told you he needed some space it almost sent your emotions out of control. Now you find out that he has a new girlfriend and you still love him.

Then you go from jealousy to rage and you want to go tear into both of them.
Chances are he hasn’t.
Evan, This may be an age-old question. My boyfriend is best friends with his ex-girlfriend. They dated for two and a half years, broke up 5 years ago, have many mutual friends. They met in graduate school and went through some hard times together, so I understand why they stay friends. However, they are way too close. The first time I met his mom, she could not stop talking about the ex.
Of course, I was annoyed but maintained my cool. I did have a discussion with my boyfriend after this incident, and he thought his mom was inappropriate. I just think the whole situation is disrespectful to me and her behavior is very inappropriate. I have met the ex-girlfriend.
A female reader, anonymous, writes 22 October Dear , The best thing you can do in this situation is to just move on with your life. I have been in your shoes and I understand how you feel. My ex boyfriend was bipolar which I only learned in round two with him.
You already have a strong connection.
Recognizing signs that your ex wants you back is an important part of the reconciliation process, as it will boost your confidence and let you know when it’s safe to take a few steps forward in his direction. The signs and signals given off when your ex is ready to reverse the breakup won’t always be obvious. Most guys will be guarded about revealing too much of their emotions too soon. Moving forward with repairing the relationship is made easier when you know that your ex is interested again, but it’s not something he’s going to come right out and say.
You need to look for signs that all your hard work in winning him back is finally paying off. Your Ex Stays In Contact With You Whenever your ex keeps the lines of communication open with you after breaking up, it’s always a good sign. Most exboyfriends who are already thinking of moving on will want to break ties with you as soon as possible, and those no longer interested in you will have even less of a desire to stay in touch.
In those two cases you’ll need to make some fast moves before your ex loses more interest in dating you again, but even in that type of scenario there are several different ways of bringing him back. Sending you emails, text-messages, and even making phone calls after your relationship ends is your exboyfriend’s way of keeping you “around” in case he changes his mind about things. Of course he’ll tell you that he’s just being friendly, and may even ask to remain friends with you after the break up.
In reality though, friendship has nothing to do with it. It’s safe and comforting for him to know where you are and what you’re doing while he plays the field and tries to see what else is out there.
By the end of this, you may or may not still choose to be with him, but ultimately that choice is up to you. I want my life back and my wellbeing in control. You see, I met your boyfriend at a rough time in my life. We all have them, and we all have stories that make us who we are and shape the way we view situations. I was drawn to your boyfriend. His effect on me was like a tornado that picks up everything in its path.
For super obvious reasons that don’t need to be explained here.
Here are three ways to cope when your ex boyfriend has a new girlfriend. How do I get over this? You need to try different things to help yourself heal and move forward. When you were with him, did he tell you how much he loves you? Then his new relationship is heartbreaking — and my heart goes out to you. You WILL survive this, and you will love again. Sometimes we need to hear things more than once before they sink in!
