To rent room from awful ex

I briefly dated a man who turned out to be awful. He ended up ghosting me and was an alcoholic. He wasnt abusive or anything, he just behaved disrespectfully to me IMO.

I moved away and now a year later i want to go back to my old town and have a great few days planned. I dont like staying with friends because I like to feel like I have my own place if you get me, like I can come and go, do my own thing, come home late if I want, etc.

This guy Air BnBs rooms in his house.

Pros: The house is gorgeous and in a fantastic area of town right where I used to live so I can really recreate how life used to feel when I lived here
The price is well well below other rooms on Air BnB because he's loaded
Objectively on a non romantic level he's a sound enough guy so I'm sure we will have a drink together and catch up at some point etc. and have a laugh having dinner or listening to some music or whatever just as friends

Cons:
Something is telling me its wrong although i dont know what.

WWYD?

I should mention that im really attached to this town and really wanted to go back on holiday for a few days and kind of make believe I never left 😂

Basically its a great house and great price, and as a host im sure he'll be great, im just wondering if its wrong or disrespectful towards myself to do it.

I should make it clear i am well over him and what happened back then.

That sounds like a recipe for disaster. You know he's not a nice guy so why would you want to reconnect with him in any way.

Stay somewhere else

It's a ridiculous idea. I'm sure there are other rooms you can rent.

Sounds like you are looking to be subsidised. The price is well well below other rooms on Air BnB because he's loaded

And you want to drink and have a laugh with him? Oh aye! Then you'll be on here because boundaries have been blured and he thinks you're his booty call

Stay somewhere else - am amazed you're even considering this!

Thank god - that sounded like a recipe for disaster!
