How true is it that exes always come back?

Even in very short term relationships.

I've always had exes come back in one shape or form.

Stories?

I'm going through it at the moment so some stories would be nice.

Come back from where?

My exh tried to get back with me not long before he married the OW. He was swiftly told to fuck off.

Leavenheath Mon 21-Oct-13 00:03:17

Where did you hear this?

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:03:41

Sorry....contact you I mean. even if it was a short term thing. particularly if they dumped you.

Mine is a total head fuck at the moment.

C0ffeeN0biscuit Mon 21-Oct-13 00:04:59

Well, a man i loved at the time dumped me and i never saw him again.

My x wanted me back when i left him. Tried to order me back.

Do you want the x to change his mind abiut finishing with you?

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:05:11

I've experienced it a few times Leavenheath.

Also heard it from.other people too.

Shellywelly1973 Mon 21-Oct-13 00:05:19

I used to think ex's were ex's for a reason!

Never had this problem...

You know in your heart of hearts if they are ex's for a good reason or not , as the case may be.

thestauntonlick Mon 21-Oct-13 00:05:47

Tell him to fuck off if he's headfucking you. You don't have to accept him contacting you if you don't want him to.

C0ffeeN0biscuit Mon 21-Oct-13 00:05:49

Oh. Dont sit around waiting. Can you block his number?

humblebumble Mon 21-Oct-13 00:06:41

Nope they all went running from me never to be heard from again.

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:08:23

The one who keeps contacting me I probably wouldn't take back. he was an arse. this last years ex.

When I was I'm my twenties, a guy who dumped me came back and started calling again a good couple of years later and there had been no contact. we only went.on a handful of dates and was the weirdest thing ever

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:10:15

I just told ex from last year to Fuck off.

ex from this year I hope contacts I guess.

thestauntonlick Mon 21-Oct-13 00:12:18

They probably contact you when they're single/after a shag/bored or whatever. I don't mean to be rude, but it doesn't sound very mysterious to me.

thestauntonlick Mon 21-Oct-13 00:13:21

Ah right! Why don't you contact him then? smile

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:14:50

I could staunton but what would I say?

thestauntonlick Mon 21-Oct-13 00:17:06

Erm, I don't know. How did you leave it when you split? Is he actually worth contacting?

brokenhearted55a Mon 21-Oct-13 00:29:50

We didn't go out that long. He ended it as he was in hell at work and.not feeling it. With all that stress not surprised.he didn't have room for it.

One of those never got off the ground things.

thestauntonlick Mon 21-Oct-13 09:37:58

I'm definitely not an expert in these matters, but you could just text him and ask how things are going, and then if he is interested it leaves it open for him to ask you out maybe. At least you'll know one way or the other and can move on if he's not up for it. Nothing ventured etc.
