    Yup you are right. I think I’ve lost a lot of confidence since all this so I’m wary of being bad mouthed now. It will get easier and one day soon I won’t care, I hope x

    I don’t think those who responded to this realise how badly I want to be done with this hence me paying as much as I can afford. I want to ESCAPE this whole situation. Even his name in my email inbox gives me a horrible overwhelming feeling of anxiety, dread and upset.

    I have set up the 3 payments from tomorrow and then will be blocking him from emailing me. He will not like this and may get mad, but at least I cannot be scared of what I cannot see.

    He has sent me one more email this evening asking when It will be done and the amount. I am not engaging as he is looking for further arguments or a response due to the way he worded it.

    I just want out and for my mental health to be restored.
    Chloe, I’ve worked with women who left life thieves in the night with nothing but the clothes on their backs to escape danger, harassment and threats, you are talking about a guy who made snide comments twice and emailed about money. I’m not saying that to belittle your situation, I’m saying it because you can EASILY avoid him and his drama for your mental sanity. You are a willing participant, and until you decide you no longer want to be, this will continue and honestly, with all this silly back and forth and the fact that you’ve taken a trip post break up, it wouldn’t surprise me if you guys ended up together again, not saying that as a judgement, I’ve had my share of drama in relationships, especially when young, all I’m saying is, own it.

    And read blues post it’s spot on.

    I'm sorry to be frank, because I know your discomfort and confusion is real, that the swirl of feelings is overwhelming, and I do feel for you. Sucks when we slip on a romantic banana peel and find ourselves in quicksand. But zoom out just a few inches and this is a lot of small potatoes being painted as big potatoes, and the theme of it all is the same mutual thirst for drama that has fueled this whole thing, from Point A to Point Today.

    There is a line, not even so fine, between harassment and annoyance. An ex who b*tches about an Instagram post and sends an annoying text while drunk? That's two annoying moments, pretty run-of-the-mill in the global history of breakups, and not exactly a steady stream of lunacy. Someone who takes you on a trip, and asks you for some money twice—not a hundred times, but two times—when his ego is bruised? Annoying, not harassing. Given that it took him less than 24 hours to simmer down last time, odds are he would have simmered down this one. A month without posting so much on social media, a little diligence in avoiding certain bars and restaurants, and, presto, this whole thing is done. And were it genuinely escalate to anything scary or against the law—that is why big, civilized cities like London have a police force.

    Flies are annoying. Little boys who cry sandboxes when their toy truck is taken from them are annoying. Ignore them, wait them out, and they go away; indulge them and they keep buzzing around your face, wailing in the sand.

    But, alas, here you are. Payment plan initiated—fine. You walk away, eventually, with a clear conscience while getting a bit more of the drama. Just know—and I mean know this, so it's not mysterious when it happens—that there are a few more jabs on that walk. He's going to say something mean to you. He's going to say something to a friend. He's going to get drunk and find a way to text you. And, here and there, you're going to kind of hate that some small part of you is attracted to it, and gets a kick out of it.

    But if you can just see all that it loses its power. It becomes an episode you've seen before, and the eyelids get heavy where they once opened wide.

    I really hope that when he finally stops contacting you that you don't fall apart completely, Chloe.

    I realize you say you don't want the drama, and on some level I believe that. However, I also don't think you are anywhere near ready to let go of him. This latest episode sucks, to be sure, but it does keep you attached to him in some way.

    I personally think you could be doing a lot more to help yourself here, but what I would really brace for is the day when he stops looking for you altogether. Or the day when you hear about the other woman he's been dating (she surely exists, but you just haven't put a face to her yet) Or the day when you find out you were never the only one.

    So much of your life right now is centred around him and what he thinks of you, and how he is still bothering you. He is still very much a major player in your emotional landscape at this point. Ask yourself how you will navigate that when he isn't and truly doesn't care what you do or where you are anymore.

    We have already rescued that point. I want nothing to do with him and I do imagine vice versa. This has just became a war to get at me now. He does not care for me in any way shape or form, and I am fully aware of that.

    The same way I do not care for him in that way, he has put me through hell.

    I got an aggressive email this morning to my old gmail telling me I am a ‘f***ing joke’ and to pay him in full immediately. So yes, I am very much done and I want out because I cannot take him any longer.

    Have a lawyer send him a cease and desist letter. Document EVERYTHING. Don’t delete emails. You need them to establish a pattern of harassment .

    Why are you not seeking legal advice about this?

    I spoke to a local adviser this morning. They advised if I set up a payment plan, which I have for my maximum affordability, technically he could still take me to court. Whether he won or not would be a different matter.

    So it seems that although I have offered this and he is still continuing the demanding emails, they can’t do a lot more.

    I guess I’m fearful of what he does next etc as a person

    Interesting.

    So you have an ex, harassing you and you block him and then decide to check an old email account...not only do you check it, which is curious enough given everything you’re going through, you see an email and instead of deleting it... you open it.... interesting...

    I can’t keep pretending I don’t see through these childish games, I can’t.

    Good luck Chloe.
