    One of my exes just wouldn't accept it was over. After 6 months I didn't want to be with him anymore but it carried on for another year because he just wouldn't accept it...people always say 'oh you could've just dumped him and blocked him' yeah I did that, and he turned up at my house. At uni. After he'd got a 2.5 hour train there. And everyone thought he was a really nice guy so all my friends/family made me feel bad but he was incredibly manipulative, like I broke up with him once while I was away with uni doing volunteering and he called me 85 times. Then he contacted the friend I was with and asked for directions to where we were, luckily she didn't tell him because he was a psycho.

    Oh and the worst time - he told me I shouldn't break up with him because his cat, who I adored, was dying. This was 2 years ago and I know the cat is still alive. Complete and utter freak.

    Was head over heels for this guy I used to date however the further the relationship got the more I realised he had an AWFUL temper. We would go out with friends and he would always get absolutely smashed and end up fighting bouncers, getting banned from various different venues.

    When I ended things, he threatened to harm himself. I felt really guilty at first but soon realised he was just being vindictive and manipulative. He is currently facing being put away for violent assualt.

    So he only started going out with your friend within 2 weeks of breaking up?

    Nothing but non stop lucky escapes

    One of my relationships dragged on for 2,5 years. It was functional but the chemistry sucked and I didnt really love her. I kept it going though because I didnt want to hurt her. Eventually - like you do - I had to break it off though, and the delay that had passed made it so much worse than it should have been. Lucky escape tho because she wanted marriage. And I could feel my life vitality draining away

    Another one is a mature student I was teaching and started sleeping with. Hot and the girl was amazing in bed, but she started going completely off the rails if I didnt text her back within 30 minutes. Im pretty sure she was literally planning on killing me. I ran so fast im pretty sure i broke some land speed records. I probably got 500+ texts and 200 missed phonecalls on literally the first day I ran.

    Yeah I've never even been in a relationship and the thought of any of my friends going out with a guy I previously dated/liked is just gut-wrenching :/

    Maybe my luckiest escape is never actually experiencing a relationship. People can be real ****s. :lol:

    So basically, you break up with him for a stupid reason and then get angry because he gets over you too quickly? He had the lucky escape from you, love.

    Fair point, but why is it any concern of yours what your boyfriend does after you finish with him? You obviously didn't care enough about him to try and find a way to fit both him and exams into your life, so good on him for moving on so quickly.

    Basically, youre just butt-hurt that he wasn't heart broken when you dumped him and found someone better straight away. Serves you right.

    Went on a blind date with a guy who turned out to be a major gambling addict in complete denial that liked to 'borrow' cash from his friends.
