I received a voicemail from my Ex. I was rather shocked since I haven’t spoken with him in over ten years. He sounded frazzled and said that he’s in a bad financial situation and needs my help. Not sure how to respond, or if I should respond.
Getting a call requesting financial help after not hearing a “Hi, how are you?” or “How was your holiday?” in over ten years… either your Ex is very stupid or exceptionally desperate. Regardless of your willingness and ability to help, you should ask yourself if you really want to open the door and have your Ex back in your life- even briefly enough to write him a check. I would take the money out of the equation and base your decision on that and respond (or not) accordingly.
I was at a Pride event and ran into my Ex. He’s single, I’m single and he suggested we get together for dinner. I sort of laughed it off, but sure enough the next day he sent a text. How should I respond?
Just because there’s a knock at the door doesn’t necessarily mean you need to invite the knocker into your home. When it comes to revisiting any form of relationship with an Ex, it’s necessary to remember why this person is your Ex in the first place. Was it a horrible breakup? Did this person cause you harm? Is your current dating life in a slump and you're simply dipping your toe in the water of familiarity? Is this person someone you’d like to have as a friend? Weigh out the why and what if and respond with action that best serves you.
Would you personally swipe right or left on an Ex?
