Just spent the night with new man, first night, this morning he said you know you are pretty now but you would be amazing if you lost some weight?

I was dumbstruck, he then said so you gonna lose some weight then

I'm a 14

Very upset I will be honest

I agree with SGB about the dangerous bit. You were without doubt a project, I am so so relieved for you that you got away this early, but you'll have to put your foot down or he could go on and on. People like this live in a little bubble of their own arrogance, without much of a footing in the real world.

Report the twat to the police if he carries on.

Thank god he never met the 'right woman' major lucky escape Flabber also agree with the poster who said bet you're gorgeous! Well done for getting rid grin

Well done on dumping this guy. Ugh.

Listen to SGB. Be prepared to go to the authorities if he keeps bothering you, do not meet him under any circumstances.

Just thought of one other thing- if anyone else has keys to your place make sure they know to not let him in, however persuasive he seems.

Keep yourself safe from this creep OP and don't hesitate to contact the police if he persists.

"Right Woman" there is no right woman for this arsehole, i bet hes the kind of man who will tell women the same old line, "Woman just dump me, no idea what i've done wrong".

Well done on dumping him OP, he's a nasty piece of work

BerylStreep Fri 25-Jan-13 15:27:03

Any chance of seeing what he wrote in the texts?

<nosey> <hopeful>

Has he gone quiet now OP? I hope you won't hear any more from him. I wonder if he realises it was the losing weight comments that were the final straw.

springyhope Sat 26-Jan-13 02:48:40

Hes already told me he will look after me and he is good at fixing people


He sounds vile. Thank goodness he has shown his colours early on so you can get out quickly.

Patted you on the bottom?? What, like a prize mare he's going to train up?? Truly gross. Shame you didn't bite a chunk out of his bottom-patting hand.

I was about to say he sounded like an arsehole, but then that would be to dignify him, as an arsehole is useful.

While no contact is probably the best response, it's a pity you couldn't have told him that, after extensive research, you've decided he'd best keep his cock for pissing with.

Just saying. grin

OMG you have dodged a bullet there!

Congrats to you for getting rid so early as he is now showing his true colours.

second Astelia 's wise comment:

JumpingJackSprat Sat 26-Jan-13 14:15:39

this sounds like the sort of thing my ex would come out with, and did come back with similar comments when i dumped him. except the opposite re weightloss, mine was a feeder- deliberately over ordering then encouraging me to eat it out of guilt that he had paid for it, derailing my weight loss efforts, used to give me lists of my faults and if i disagreed with him he would sulk for months sometimes. i wish i knew then what i know now and i wouldnt have wasted 3.5 years with the fuckwit. you have had a very lucky escape. i dumped him by text too as by the end i couldnt bring myself to speak to him as he made my flesh crawl. when i ended it he was in the middle of a sulk after he tried to leave me in a foreign country and fly home early so me dumping him a few weeks later was a shock to the system! grin took me a while to get rid of him i wish id just ignored ignored ignored.

Flabber has he made you see the error of your ways yet?

What about that list of defects, are you working on some self-improvement?
