Ex bf giving me mixed signals.

Recommended Posts

So my ex and i dated for almost a month. Im 18 and hes a year younger than me. The thing is, he is majorly depressed, insecure, and extremely negative about everything. When we first started dating he told me pretty early that he loved me and i just thought, well some people fall faster than others so i didn't really think anything of it. I didn't say it back because i had not yet felt the same way and that he should give me some time. For a couple days he started acting weird and had not been answering any of my texts. A few days ago i told him that i was starting to love him and he told me that he wasn't ready for love or a relationship. He swore to me that he didn't know why he felt the way he did. The next day he broke up with me. After that i completely stopped texting him. Later on that day he texted me telling me he missed me and kept asking me to talk to him. He then called me 7 times in a row and i didn't answer. He calls me all the time now asking to hang out like everything is okay and keeps telling me he still likes me. Hes giving me tons of mixed signals and i don't know what to do.. I am so frustrated and confused. Please help!

Never date or be with someone who's got more issues or problems than you. You have to consider what you are getting yourself into here. ...and seeing as the relationship is still in its early stages, you should let this one go. Otherwise you'll be loosing more than just this relationship.

 

Nobody needs drama...

Some people like to play the push/pull game. The minute you say you care, he runs. The minute you don't care, he runs back. It's a horrible game to play and I can't say that I've ever won.

 

I think people who play this game have deep insecurities that you can't even imagine. I think they don't even really know what's wrong with them. They act off pure instinct. When you love them, instinct tells them to run. When they are lonely, instinct tells them to run back. And so it happens, over and over and over and over again.

    • How a Brain Break Can Increase Focus and Productivity
      A recent study has found that taking short breaks during work hours can actually improve productivity and focus. The study suggests that the brain needs breaks in order to refresh and refocus, and that working for extended periods of time without breaks can lead to burnout and decreased productivity.

      Breaks can come in many forms, such as a quick walk outside, a short nap, or a mental break to daydream. These breaks can help the brain recharge and increase overall focus and productivity. The study recommends taking a break every 90 minutes to 2 hours, as this is the average amount of time the brain can maintain focus without a break.

      Taking breaks can also help to prevent burnout. When people work for extended periods without breaks, they can become exhausted and experience feelings of burnout. Taking regular breaks can help to prevent this and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

      In conclusion, taking short breaks during work hours can actually improve productivity and focus. The brain needs breaks to recharge and refocus, and working for extended periods of time without breaks can lead to burnout and decreased productivity. Regular breaks are crucial for maintaining a healthy work-life balance and preventing burnout.
