Ex is playing mind games with me...

I split up with my ex recently.

He rang me up the other day and told me how much he loved me and that i was the most wonderful person he had ever met etc.

He rang up again yesterday, asked me to go to his. He said that he had bought me and my DC some Christmas presents (some sounded like they were quite expensive etc). He invited me to go to his (I had the night off as my DC were with their Dad). He said that he finds me very attractive, that he was really horny etc and wanted to 'rip my clothes off' etc. I said no, I won't come round etc. He said that he was so horny and that he would have to ring me back as he needed to have a wank to sort himself out hmm I got the impression from these phone calls that this meant that he wanted us to get back together etc.

Anyway he rang back and then started saying that perhaps it was a good idea that I didn't come round seeing as we are not together anymore. I said well what was all this talk about him loving me, him wanting me to come to his and him buying us presents etc. Told him it sounded like mixed messages and that I am definitely glad that I did not go to his as it would have just been for sex and it would have made me feel used.

He denied saying that he had said that he loved me or that he was sending mixed messages etc.

This is the nail in the coffin for me now. I just felt like he was messing me around.

What a deeply unpleasant man. I certainly wouldn't engage with him again, especially as he's not your children's dad.

He wanted a shag so thought by telling you he loved you, got you expensive presents etc. you'd be round there to sort him out.

Block contact if he is not your DC father you have no need to read his mind games.

He was just trying to get a shag.

Block his number, you've already worked out that he's no good for you. Well done.

He sounds horrible.

The gifts nonsense is pure manipulation. It's not generosity: it's a hook to try and reel you in.
The needing a wank thing is just gross - on what planet is that flattering?
And then gaslighting you.

If you are still receiving calls from him this way, you need to increase your barriers for contact. Block his number, or change phone numbers if your provider doesn't block numbers. Change email address. Block him on social media. The lot. You need iron-clad defenses against receiving these messages that mess with your head, if you are to move on properly.

Drop contact for all but essentials. He can only mess with your mind if you engage with him.

Did he ACTUALLY say he needs to go for a wank?!?!

Romantic fool he is

It's not mind games, it's blatant shagbagging. Come on - wake up a bit!
