yes, I used to think about it more, but not as much anymore. I’ve learned to forgive him, not for what he did, but so I can have some freedom. He sexually assaulted me via coercion. I don’t believe he has done it to anyone else, but I obviously have no idea. I haven’t seen him in years. I can understand where you are coming from!

I can also say that I hear certain songs that remind me our past relationship, and that makes me angry, because he killed some songs for me!

I have an ex who was such a jerk that he is now is prison for the next 28 years.  Something was just off about him.  Turns out he is a sociopath.

Nah. They’ve done some stupid things (last two broke up because they wanted to date someone else or were already dating) but I’m friends with one and just avoid the other one. The one I’m friends with apoligized (over, and over, and over again) for what he did, and also for not telling me until much later so that helped smooth things over.

I have an ex like this, although I almost never think of him anymore. The only time I do is if I hear his name (it was relatively uncommon), he tries to contact me through FB or something else really obvious like that.

At this point, I can honestly say I don’t get angry anymore (good thing too cause it’s been 6 years… yikes!), but when I think of him I do get kind of skeeved out. That relationship is one thing I can genuinely say with 100% certainty I regret. Ugh.

Oh well, we live and we learn. I learned what I did NOT want… and I went out and found the complete opposite, who is everything I could ever want! Positives in every situation, I guess πŸ™‚

I have an ex that put his hands on me more than once. Then decided that it was my fault that I broke up with him. He ended upsending me an email saying he forgives me. He also told me to listen to the song “could have been me” so now whenever I hear this song I get pissed for a few hours. What a DB?!

This was way back in highschool, but I dated a guy who ended up no longer liking women.  He moved, started dating men and tried to make it sound like it was my fault he no longer liked women!  I was really freaked out for a long time, but thankfully I’m way over that now.

@SweetCheeks: yes! It used to happen a lot, and now it’s not really much of an issue. Little things come up and I’ll think of how pathetic he is. Fiance and I actually make fun of what a loser he is and some of the dumber things.

One ex is gay, the other is dead. I’m batting a 1,000.

It doesn’t happen often, but if I think about a stupid thing an ex did, what I focus on most is why I didn’t leave him sooner… therefore, I’m the jerk who makes me mad all over again πŸ™‚  I’ve never had anything too horrible or dramatic though.  I can’t imagine what that’s like – I’m sorry to hear some of you have been through that.

My sister and I were talking about this today. We both couldn’t believe how stupid we were when we were younger.

ya, i have had moments when i think about my ex and how MAD he made me. he used to lie to me a lot about other female friends, when he saw them, how often, who else was there. i never had concrete proof that he cheated, but i would not be surprised and i caught him in lies so many times, i don’t know if i get more mad at him or myself becase i stayed with him for over 3 years!
