Dealing With Evil Ex Boyfriend

What's Your Worst Story Involving an Evil Ex?

In Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, out today, Michael Cera meets his dream girl, but must battle her seven evil exes before he wins her over. The theme got BuzzSugar thinking about classic devilish exes from movies — like Julia Roberts's character in My Best Friend's Wedding.

We don't have to look to fiction for more examples of evil exes. Can you think of a more problematic former lover than Levi Johnston, who cashed in by trashing Bristol Palin's family? And then there's our own storied dating lives. I'd bet we all have tales of nightmare exes who called up our new boyfriends, sent us awkward emails, or contacted our family.

^^ Wow, just... wow. That reminds me of my soon to be ex-BIL. He cheated on his first wife when she was pregnant, then basically left my sister and found a new woman (they're still legally married and have a newborn). He's a douche and she's divorcing his ass. Some guys, once a cheater, always a cheater.

My exhusband cheated on me while I was pregnant with our second child, then tried to "give" me to our recently divorced Baptist minister.

I don't have a terrible ex story but there is a doozy in my family.To make a LOOOOOOOONG story short (I'm talking 15 years long) - My Aunt married a Socipath who manipulated my entire family, put my Dad's business into bankrupcy (and our family), stole my grandparent's life savings, and cheated on my Aunt while she was dying from lukemia! After she passed, he kidnapped my 8-year-old cousin and dissapeared for 6 years, and as it later came out, molested his pre-teen step-daughter from a second marriage. Needless to say he is in jail right now (but not for long enough), but his action have haunted my family for 30 years!I've never met anyone so thoroughly wicked in my whole life.

You know, Kitty, when people say I'm strong because of it, it sort of throws me off. Really, I'm not braver or stronger than anyone else, I just found myself in a bad situation and made the right choice getting out of it. But thank you, it was a difficult situation and it always feels good to have a little extra support.

These are crazy stories! Thanks ladies for sharing them.I didn't date much before I met my current guy, but there was 1 guy that stands out as a loser. I was 17, he was 18, the entire time he kept trying to pressure me into having sex. I wasn't really sexually attracted to him and I was just seeing how things would go (plus, I was saving myself for marriage at the time). We were "dating" for a month and at the very end, he called me to tell me he slept with his best friend's girlfriend the night before (his friend was in rehab). He was trying to get back with me after, but I didn't really care about him, so it was easy to get over.

Oh. Long story short. Was with the ex-fiancee for more than 5 years. Made me his personal chaffeur for all those time (Wasn't motivated to learn to drive or get learner's permit). Slowly manipulated me throughout the years to feel like I was never good enough for him...Stole my laptop and bike after we broke up (well, he just moved out of the country and brought my stuffs with him, and the ones he couldn't bring, he gave away to his friends)...always calling me paranoid and insecure but then he was cheating on me at least the last year of the relationship (that I know of) oh yah, he also put me in debt over 10k to help him further his education, daily living, etc--the 10k was on top of the money I shelled out for him (food, fun, etc) for the past 5 years. Ok. He did pick up dinner tabs, like once or twice a year or something for the past 5 years, but 99% of them have always been my job to do those for him. For some reasons, he always had a reason why he couldn't pay.Sadly I always fell for the 'I'll pay you back,' then to the 'We'll get married one day' (ok, he did propose) and the 'I love you.' Basically, I played the fool very well.

I had a couple of ex's that stalked me after our relationships ended. They scared off my new dates, contacted my parents (when I ignored them), and provoked fights (with other men) in public (over me), etc. It was awful. They were psycho ex-boyfriends. They were awful baggage. To this day, when old mutual friends contact me, I make them promise to not update my ex's about me. It took a lot to remove them from my life, and I want to keep them away.

My ex slept with my sister in law. He was friends with my brother first, things ended with us then slept with his friends wife. He sent a friend request on face book like nothing happened.

Kitty that guy sounds like a nut. Religion has a way of doing that to some people, it screws the kids all up.I've only got one evil one, but he mastered it. Verbally/physically abusive, lied, cheated on me, raped me, stalked and threatened me when I dumped him, I mean you name it, he did it. But whatever, that's what therapy is for and I'm mostly happy now. I like to look at it as a learning experience.

In college, I dated a guy who had been a home-schooled kid growing up. He had grown up in this CRAZY house, where they used religion to manipulate everything. They HATED me from day one when they found out I was going to be a teacher...in a public school (OH NO! HOW HORRIBLE!). He pretended for months that he didn't believe in everything they did and was trying to break out and become a worldly individual, he'd "just had a late start" because his parents had kept him in a bubble. He was obsessed with sex, like any other 25 year-old. But months into it, his "religious" crap came out and he'd guilt me like I was the devil and made him do it. He used it as an excuse to TRY to bully me into giving him oral sex, and he'd never have to do anything. Anything else was "SINFUL". Of course, I refused to budge on that one. Let's keep in mind that he was literally living with me by the time we broke up. He'd worked his way into my apartment, and even his dorm-mate had gone to the RA to ask if he'd moved out. He hadn't been back to his dorm for more than to pick something up in MONTHS. He even used my car, since he'd wrecked his and had taken it back to his hometown where his parents could fix it. HE moved himself into MY apartment, and told everyone back home he was living in the dorm they were paying for. I was the "sinful" one, they thought was corrupting him, though! He was a complete hypocrite about everything! It drove me nuts. And, what was worse was that none of it came out until towards the end. Then, I fought with him like nuts, because he'd just flipped a switch. When I met him he was this cool hippie-type with long hair who took me to art museums and impulsively fell in love with me and loved to go camping and exploring. Six months later, he was a religious nut like his parents wanted him to be all along. He'd shaved his hair off and started telling me I was going to go to hell for watching two men hold hands on TV. He ridiculed everything and tried to turn of MY TV or control the radio in MMMYYYY car or get rid of things in MY apartment. I couldn't so much as watch "True Life" if there were hints of "gayness"! But, he was obsessed with watching Entourage, even through threesome scenes and all of it's objectification of women! I kid you not, a day after we broke up, this guy moved into an apartment across from mine with his little brother!!! Keep in mind, there was NO REASON to, other than to f*** with me, because I lived in another city miles away from the university...AND HE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A CAR! They'd come by knocking on the door at midnight pretending he was coming to drop something off that was mine (like a sock or cd or something), even when my family was visiting!In the end, I figured out that he'd been lying all along to try to convince me to date him. He figured he could pretend he was what I wanted, get me to fall in love, and then manipulate me into being what his parents wanted. I wasn't going to budge, though. I realize I learned a lot about how deceiving people can be and to never give up your values for any dumb guy. That guy was a lunatic, though! Fortunately it was only a 6 month relationship. Looking back on it, I definitely learned the signs of a guy who's a deadbeat loser and lives off of women. If a guy doesn't have a job (even though he's only in three college classes), a car, and tries to slowly move in with you..LOCK THE FRONT DOOR!

My ex was involved in a long term relationship. I found out through mutual friends that before that break-up he ended up taking advantage of his then s/o - did things to her he should have never had done and proceeded to lie about it and post slander about her family later on.He used her not only sexually but financially and emotionally abused her. When I fould out about this I did confront him - he proceeded to try to worm his way out of it. Needless to say this was THE dealbreaker for us.

My longest-term ex continued to contact me after we broke up for years, and the last time was just after his new girlfriend had had their baby! and he was texting me asking me if I was in his town (he knew from facebook - I was there visiting a girlfriend) and if I wanted to get together. I'm like, yes I'm here, but I'm here with my BOYFRIEND! and you're nothing but a dirty cheater.Also, my most recent ex wrote me on facebook exactly 2 years after we broke up saying sorry and other sappy crap, and at that time I'd already been living with my current boyfriend for 6 months, and he knew that.But nothing like psycho or anything.

Besides having an ex-bf who went blabbing to all of his friends (2 of them were also my guy friends) about our sex life when I left him and another one who said that nobody else would ever love me if I left him and that he would kill all my family so I would suffer as much as he did, I can't say I have an evil ex. Just 2 who took the break up really hard and acted like jerks.
