I recently bumped into my ex, the father of my child, at a night club while out with friends. Our relationship ended seven months ago (he just left, saying he wasn't ready to be in a serious relationship) and we can't seem to get along more than a few days at a time. When he gets very angry with me, he calls me a ***** or a ho. He's told me constantly that he no longer wants me, hates me, and that I'm going to be by myself. He loves rubbing my nose in his new relationship (with a woman who has three kids he complains about constantly). He's also been neglecting our daughter emotionally during all this, rarely exercising his visitation. This is the crux of most of our arguments. I'll admit my nagging him about it isn't helping the situation, but I don't want my daughter to feel her daddy doesn't care about her. At the night club, I basically ignored my ex and tried to enjoy the evening. I was asked to dance by several men and two were interested in getting to know me better. Every time someone approached me or tried to catch my eye, my ex would come over and nuzzle my neck or whisper in my ear. He told me he knew exactly what I was trying to do and that he was going to c*ckblock all evening. I became angry and told him that he had a woman and that I wanted him to leave me alone. He replied that the new woman was not his woman (even though he's living with her) and again called me a *****. He left the club, angry and pissed. So he's expressed to me that he doesn't want me anymore. Why then, would he care whether I have a new man or not? My friends say he wants me back. I say he just doesn't want to see me happy. I really want to get along for our daughter's sake, but it seems like I'm the only one trying and my efforts usually end up in an argument (some of them are my fault). It's very frustrating because when I try to talk to him, he refuses to return my calls or hangs up in my face. How can I mend fences with my ex and what was his motivation for c*ckblocking? Thoughts?
