    I agree that chatting with your friend before making any hasty decisions and jumping to conclusions first is a good idea. Think about what you want to ask before you approach her.

    I think your spidey senses could be right though, and I wouldn't be surprised if your friend has been fuelling your ex's advances & enjoying the attention. At least, that's the impression I'm getting from your post.

    All adults being equal, I'd allow others to manage their own interactions as I stay out of it. I'd tell friend that my ex is an ex for a reason, so we can talk about anything in the world but him, and I'd ask her to agree that he never ends up in our home. Then whatever happens can happen without my knowledge or concern.

    They broke up. The roommate is the one communicating with her exbf.

    Hello everyone, thank you all for the advice. Here is an update to the situation. So he texted her AND my other roommate again not very long after. I was starting to wonder if he was doing this to get to me. My other roommate is great. She showed me immediately and instantly blocked him without hesitation. The other roommate (the one from the original story) didn't immediately block him, however. I expressed to her how upsetting this was to me. She finally asked me if I wanted her to block him and I said yes. So I was under the impression that she did. However, fast forward about 2 weeks later, up to yesterday, and she showed me another text from him. In the text he said, "Why do you always tell [my name] whenever I text you? It's like you have morals all of the sudden." I was just beyond fed up and asked her why she didn't block him when I asked her to. She claimed that she blocked him on her phone but that his texts were still going through on the computer and she couldn't figure out how to block him on the computer. I got on her computer and tried to block his contact multiple times but it didn't seem to be working. I asked her to restart her computer and she refused, claiming that it "messes up her computer" every time she restarts it. I got so frustrated and just kind of gave up and went to bed. I have just hit a wall at this point and have no clue what to do in the future. I am questioning if there is more going on here that she is not telling me (she has a reputation for lying and also for sleeping around A LOT. She even slept with her own best friend's boyfriend in the past but that is a whole different story.) I know he is absolutely going to text her again and I can't bear to relive all the pain and frustration again. I am getting to the point where I think I need to tell her: Either figure out how to block him for good or I am moving out because it's too much for me. I am also debating sending a text to my ex but I wouldn't even know what to say. If anyone else has any more advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I definitely think that is the best option for me at this point. It's clear that my ex is not going to stop contacting her and I am now questioning her role in this whole situation because she has been acting very shady and secretive lately. Thank you for the advice.

Avoid this roommate until you can arrange to move out. Do not confide in her and be out as often as possible. Make a better class of friends.

    I agree completely. A lot of the things she's done in the past have been very questionable and she has a reputation for lying. I think distancing myself is the best option right now. Thank you for the advice.

    She was right to inform you that he had tried to cheat with her, yes. But the continued, secretive communication makes me wonder if she was motivated to tell you so that you would dump him and she could have a go with him. I also wonder why she would tell you they've been in touch unless she wanted to feel out your reaction to them getting closer.

    Either way? It's time to start looking for a new roommate. Otherwise you might one morning find them in the kitchen making coffee together in their pajamas.

    I completely agree. They are both very questionable people and have a lot of issues as far as I'm concerned. Unfortunately she is known for being a pathological liar and probably would never tell me the truth of the situation no matter what. I think distancing myself is my best option at this point. Thank you for the advice.

    If it turns out that your assumptions were correct, then you know this girl is a friend to no one, least of all herself. Think about it, if she is willing to get involved with a cheater, how low is her self worth? It's almost comically pathetic. Rather than being angry, I'd be pitying her. Either way, I'd end the friendship, treat her as arms length roommate/stranger and move on out as soon as the lease is out. It's a case of you can't fix stupid and you shouldn't waste any personal mental space or energy on either of them. Better to focus on your studies, other friends, hobbies, parties, etc, etc, etc than two losers.

    At this point, I have developed a very strong gut feeling that there's more to the situation than originally meets the eye. She has a reputation for lying and sleeping around with a LOT of people, including many guys that her friends have been involved with at some point. So it's really not far out of the realm of possibility that something happened between the two of them. I think distancing myself is my best option at this point. Thank you for the advice.

    Someone is feeding this cat, or he'd grow weary from being shut down and go elsewhere.
    Why is it he's still coming around? That would be a question for your best friend.

    I completely agree and have a pretty strong gut feeling that something has been going on. Unfortunately she will probably never tell me the truth, so I think I just need to try to remove her from my life. Thank you for the advice.

    I think you should talk to her and find out the truth. But be prepared to end a friendship.
