In a relationship with my ex's cousin Watch

    • Thread Starter


    I dated this guy for 4 months, but the last 4 weeks or so of our relationship we became very distant - he never made an effort to see me and I felt like I was pestering him when I asked to see him. Eventually I'd had enough, and so I messaged him saying how I felt that this wasn't a relationship anymore, and that if he wanted to meet me then he needs to let me know. He agreed and said it's best if we go our separate ways. His reason for dumping me is shocking tbf; because I was in a low place and I intentionally inflicted injury on myself (cutting). Now if it had been the other way around, I'd of been there for him, trying to help him through whatever he was going through. Also he thought I was jealous because he wanted to meet up with his ex as a friend - personally I found it weird, I wasn't jealous I was just puzzled and had that feeling of not being good enough :/

    I became friends with his cousin as soon as I met him, while I was with my ex early on in our relationship. I found him so funny and entertaining - he's just amazing haha.

    So now my ex is p***** off big time calling me a selfish c*** and all his friends/family think it's sick and wrong. The thing is, he's not that angry with his cousin, all the anger is directed at me? We are only 17/18 so it's not like we were married with kids!

    Please could someone give me their view here? I want to be with the guy I'm with now, and I can't/won't turn my feelings off!

    Guy sounds like an idiot. Keep on keeping on, I say, and if his friends or family get at you, explain the whole story to them and they'll probably come around.
