How to Avoid an Ex

"Should I Change My Number to Avoid My Ex?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My ex and I broke up eight months ago. We can't seem to talk without a fight occurring, so I personally don't see the point in talking. He broke up with me and refused to see me after we broke up. He didn't even have the decency to talk with me face to face. But lately, he wants to text me and that's it. When I brought up the idea of hanging out, he said that he's not sure that it's a good idea because I will "get upset." It really pissed me off because he just assumes everything. I am perfectly able to control any emotions or feelings I have and be civil with him. But for some reason, he thinks I'm still hung up on him. I found that I am much happier without him in my life. He was my first love so that's why whenever I'm sad, I think of him. I'm getting a new phone number soon and I was thinking about not giving it to him. That way, he will never text me again and I can move on with my life. He's always very indifferent and rude when I talk to him, but I always feel bad when I confront him about it. It's not healthy. Is this a good idea? Should I just disappear completely?

Why would you even want to stay in contact with this person?

It's a great idea to change your number and not give it to him. You don't need his negativity dragging you down. It sounds like he doesn't want to be with you but doesn't want you to get on with your life either. It's time to cut all ties for good. Wishing you the best.

Yep. You should just disappear completely. The two of you don't have a basis for a continuing healthy relationship, so don't try. Stop trying to hold on to him. It didn't work, it doesn't work, and it's time to accept that. No more texting, no hanging out, a clean break and move on. I can see that you know that....you're just hoping someone will tell you to go for it....try for that happy friendship thing. But based on the current behaviors......it's time to disappear. good luck
