True Confession — I'm Toying With His Emotions

True Confession — I'm Toying With His Emotions

I know how much you all love our Sunday Confessional, so my friend at True Confessions is joining forces with me to bring you a midweek confessional! Weigh in and tell us if you forgive or don't forgive the confessional below.

"My ex is trying to get back together with me. I have no plans on going through with it but I sure am enjoying the sense of power I feel right now! Is toying with his emotions forgivable?"

Yes, who broke up with whom, and what were the circumstances. That is the question. I took a slice of revenge once. It felt pretty good. He broke up with me in a horrible shocking way. Left me for the bosses daughter. Then wanted me back. Ok. Well, hmm lets see. I started with expensive dinners and dates. He paid for everything. I would ignore some of his phone calls when I knew he needed to talk. I told him there was another man at the time so I wasn't sure if I could commit, but I'd be happy to give it a try. Meanwhile bosses daughter is living with him....... This old boyfriend in question was rich and cold and competitive and the new boyfriend had millions. This only heightened his sick sense of winning and I used this to my advantage. Later after a while I made it more and more clear I was losing interest and slammed a door in his face. Never saw him again. Oh well.

Undecided... We need to know a WHOLE lot more of the story than that to be able to effectively vote on this question...

i'm also undecided. it depends on if he did anything in the past to deserve it. And I'd be careful to not take it TOO far.

Last time I heard that line from a friend about her ex, it was actually a cover for her because she did want to get back with him, even after all the crappy stuff he did to her. She made it sound just like you are, that she was just f'ing with him for revenge, but then it quickly turned into jumping back into bed with him. If you're done with him, then be done and move on completely. Don't waste your time screwing with his head. Not healthy for either of you.

I have been cheated on by an ex, and he came crawling back, after he realized how stupid he was to let me go.... I had absolutely no intention of getting back with him ever, and I will admit that for a second I thought about how good it would feel to hurt him the same way he hurt me...but then I realized...I am a grown ass woman, and why would I lower myself to that level? What good does it do? If that brings joy to your life....well then I would suggest that you get a life.

This doesn't sound healthy at all...and I'm mostly talking about you. Move on, and stop playing games. What's the point indulging in such negative behavior. Plus, it could be dangerous for you...physically. It's time to grow up. :)

oh by the way, try to keep yourself physically safe. considering he is your ex. he probably knows your address.

When a guy does the same to you in the near future, I look forward to reading that story! ;-) If he never cheated on you, you are possibly turning him into a guy who hates commitment...ruining him for other women. Stop being immature.

Unforgive. I think you need to grow up. I'm glad you find STOOPING to his level exhilarating because to the rest of the world it's immature.

Worst case scenario....he turns psycho when he finds out and wants "retribution"...the "physical" kind...the YOU "laying on a ditch" kind... dramatic...yes...possible...yeah, it's happened. OH...and KARMA is a BITCH! :oy:

Are you so pathetic that you need this little power trip to make yourself feel good? That's so sad. Get a life for God's sake.

It is so wrong to mess with people's heads.. call it toying if you want to - I call it bullying, and I abhor bullies.

If you honestly have NO intentions of not getting back with him...NOT FORGIVE. Sounds like a self-esteem problem if you are being mean to someone else to feel better about yourself.

There are just two situations in which toying with his emotions are 'ok' :P in my opinion: - He seriously hurt you in the past (cheating, or maybe he was the one who suddenly broke up) like commenters above said - You've decided you want him after all (for a second chance), but you're lengthening the 'chase' ;)

it totally depends on why you broke up and what kind of guy he is a guy who cheated totally deserves to know what it feels like to have a broken heart otherwise, after an amicable breakup with a good guy, this wouldn't be forgivable not enough details are given for me to decide!

Sorry but I'm undecided too. I actually did this to an ex a few years ago after he cheated on me with my friend. When things w/ her didn't work out he realized what he had with me and tried to come back. Honestly, I LOVED playing w/ his emotions and then after everything was said and done I left a voicemail on his cell phone telling him everything. It felt sooo good. He was such a jerk so I can relate to what the girl is saying. :OOPS:
