No advice, but I’d be mortified. Even if we still got along, it’s still such an awkward situation!

@glittermoon:  Wow…that is going to be a little weird. I would not want to see my ex everyday or hear him have sex!

I believe I’d have to move. It was awkward/painful enough living five blocks from ex-FI….

LOL that sounds like a fun sitcom premise or a reality TV show, not real life! I guess as long as you are all Ok with it!

It sounds like in your situation it could end up being okay. I do think you should take notes about any bizarre stuff that happens in case you want to write it into a short story/novel some day. 🙂

when i broke up with my ex he moved out of the house and bought a house on the street behind me, like around the corner.  he had to drive by my house every day whenever he left the neighbourhood. 

also, he was still good friends with the neighbours across the street and beside me so i would see him walking down the side walk past my house to visit the neighbours.

i don’t know why he chose to live so close.  i told him it’s going to make him more uncomfortable than me.  the break up was my choice.

@glittermoon:  well, we didn’t get any uninvited love notes thank goodness.  my dh and i ended up moving after 2 years. 

funny, we moved to another country and just the other day, my dh looked out the window and laughed.  he said he saw a car parked across the street that looked just like my ex’s.  my dh joked and said, “dear god, i thought he followed us here too”

haha, your story kind of reminds me of an ex. In college, I dated a guy for 2.5 years… He still lived back home while i was at school. He broke my heart and while it was still fresh (a few days), he started to date my next door neighbor.  Everytime I came home from school, I had to see his car parked out front or them coming/going hand in hand.  It was HORRIBLE!!! I nick-named her the “whore next door” LOL


I agree with the others… You should star in a sitcom. This could lead to potentially awkward moments that will turn into good stories later on 🙂 Sometimes you just gotta laugh at what life throws your way
