Is my ex jealous or helpful?
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I have been dating my boyfriend for 3 and half years. And we broke up like 2 weeks ago. It was mutual he had some stuff to work on and i just wanted to give him that time. However we agreed to date other people.
But the other night i told him that i got a date and he made up an excuse to come over and helped me dress and put on me all the jewelry he gave me as a present and then we went with me downstairs and told me that anything happens that i should call him and then in the middle of my date he called and left a "just calling to say hi" message.
I don't understand what he is doing. He told me that he is dating 2 girls himself. They are strippers by the way. Why he is telling me this is he trying to make me jealous? and then he's helping me to look hot for another guy? what is that about. if he whould be jealous himself he would probably not come over and helped me dress, right? i am so confused.
Being in a breakup is always confusing. There is a long period called the rebound that happens afterwards and it sounds like you're both in it. He's run off with strippers and he's pushing you into the arms of other guys. I would really take it slow here and give yourself time to heal and see how you feel about it all in a month or two. Breakups don't just heal instantly.
I have a lot of advice on breaking up here -
you need to take things slow and then see how it goes!
