Ex trying to get in contactWatch
He was horrible to be with and I was so relieved when I left the relationship. He continuously tried to get in contact and was abusive towards me for months afterwards which is why I changed my number - because blocking him was not enough.
My issue now is that I still get scared when I know he is trying to contact me. After 3 years I was feeling happy and safe and knowing he is trying to get in contact and not knowing his next move makes me feel scared. What should I do?
If he is trying to cause you fear or distress, don't let him achieve his purpose.
You have moved on from the time that you were involved with him.
Plus you have no desire to reestablish contact, relive the past or have your happiness ruined by his unpleasant behaviour.
Do you have any mutual friends who can support you and encourage him to end all contact attempts?
Is he located in the same country as you?
Does he have your current address?
I've been harassed by exes that I dumped as a teen.
Stalker ex only stopped coming to my workplace to harass me because he had to leave the UK due to the pandemic, six years after I ended the relationship.
He still bombards my messaging service but I'm so glad that he's stuck in another continent and very far away.
