Did something silly.

I sent a text to my Exs new gf. Because I was angry at him.

Now he's ringing and I'm scared he's going to turn up at the house. It was a stupid thing to do. I was really upset as he was choosing seeing her over his parental responsibilities (again) and it meant my plans had to be cancelled. I don't get out much sad

I feel really stupid now.

What did your message say? Bit hard to comment without knowing this.

ReturnOfTheJewel Fri 20-May-16 09:02:35

And how did you have her number?

VioletBam Fri 20-May-16 09:04:20

It's done now. You didn't threaten her or anything did you? If not, forget it!

ShittityBoppityBoo Fri 20-May-16 09:05:09

Sorry a Facebook text. I feel like a complete arsehole. He told me he wasn't seeing anyone, was adamant about this...until I came to his house and saw them shagging in the living room sad
So I told her I had seen them
I say 'girlfriend ' in my op but they aren't out in the open about being together. It would spoil people's view of him being the victim

Are there people in RL you can talk to about this?
Why would you be scared of him coming round?
Were you generally scared of him?
Get a friend round if you can and talk it out with them.
Don't let him be the 'victim' here.
If he's been shagging someone else and not been doing as he should with his kids then let people know.
Don't keep his dirty secret. You owe him nothing!

Didn't she notice that you walked in?

Anyway, if you just said that you saw them and it's nothing that could be judged as slanderous/abusive/threatening, she'll probably just think it's a weird message and forget it. It doesn't sound like she needs to keep it quiet, just him, so she's unlikely to be too bothered.

Is he violent?

This heavily suggests that you still have at least some feelings for him. Can you change the set up so you're not exposed to him? Don't go to his house, don't have contact with him unless it's about the children, keep it to an absolute minimum anyway... You're at risk of him trying to use your feelings against you now they are obvious. It sounds like you need some distance to help you heal, too.

We aren't together so he has the right to do so. He just lies about it. He told me they were just friends And then I turned up wanting to talk about some stuff and saw that. I felt like an idiot.

ShittityBoppityBoo Fri 20-May-16 09:13:38

I didn't walk in the house. The window/curtains were open. His communal doorbell is broke so I went to shout "hello?" through the window

RedMapleLeaf Fri 20-May-16 09:15:18

This happened this morning?

ShittityBoppityBoo Fri 20-May-16 09:15:22

I want to go non contact but my family have basically shot me down for it and said he will still be involved in everything (been together a long time and they see him as family as much as me) so if I don't want to attend family events because he is there that's my choice. But they won't not invite him.

He's not violent. He's never hit me. But he's pushed me and he has an awful temper for breaking stuff.

ShittityBoppityBoo Fri 20-May-16 09:15:54

No. It happened about 2 weeks ago.

LookAtMeGo Fri 20-May-16 09:19:34

But when did you send the message?

hellsbellsmelons Fri 20-May-16 09:34:56

Your family are not supporting you at all here.
That must be hard to handle.
I wouldn't go to family events if he was going to be there.
Not a chance.
Did you split up because this is the OW?

LizKeen Fri 20-May-16 09:43:11

Wow. Your family are jerks. Have they always been so dismissive of you?

I would suggest you take a massive step back from everyone, and start to focus on you and living your life how you want to.

Don't get drawn in to your ex's drama. It is what he wants. Now he can say that you were in the wrong for messaging her, instead of HIM being wrong for being a flakey fucker and shirking his responsibilities.

RickOShay Fri 20-May-16 09:43:40

I don't blame you, must have been awful to see them. Don't apologise to him, and don't feel bad about it. Sounds like he as put you through the wringer and you are justifiably pissed off. Don't now waste your time feeling like a nob. Life will get better for you, and you are evidently better off without him, and I know the best revenge is living well but sometimes it is all just too much. flowers and please don't feel bad. Onwards and upwards.

Chuck it in the fuck it bucket and move on.

You know you were wrong to do it. Send him and her a message saying you were wrong to comment and their private life is just that.

Then keep all comms around your mutual children. You can't stop your family acting like they do. Presumably if he has a new gf, she will not be keen to spend time with your folks!
