I did in the respect that he kept contact, as in "trying to keep a foot in the door" but I wasn't for it.

I have one of those, I had a hard time turning him down until I got into my current relationship.
I am so smitten with my beau, I completely ignore the boomerang.

Oh geez. Over the last week there have been two.

The first one just apologized for things that went down between us that had caused us not to speak for several months.

And then, someone I dated for a couple months about two years ago just popped up out of the blue. When we had gotten together he had a pregnant future baby momma (from a drunken slip-up with a friend) in Florida. We were in Virginia. The whole time he assured me and was adamant that he had no desire to be with her romantically. I was cool with that and understood his responsibilities. No big deal. Then when she found out that I was around he flipped shit on him and started trashing me. Got overly dramatic and guilt tripped him. He ultimately gave in, dumped me in a really messy, and moved back to Florida. We hadn't spoken since.

Well, here it is almost two years later. I randomly got a Facebook message asking me how I've been and saying that he's spent the last couple of years trying to find me so he could apologize because he was sorry and had made a huge mistake. We did some catching up on the phone. It was obvious that we still got along like best friends.

Three days after that first message he make a 14 hour drive up here to stay for a week. Mostly to see me, but family as well. He's even planning on moving back here in a few months. There's nothing romantic in it anymore and we're much like best friends, but it's all strange.

This kind of thing happens EVERY TIME after a break up. Months go by and they pop up out of the blue to apologize and sometimes trying to get things back. I still don't understand it. I guess they just realize what they've missed out on?

No, I've pretty much been with the same person forever.

Not really, no one I've been with before has been close enough to make me want to keep coming back or vice versa.

Most of my ex's are a part of my life as good friends.
My hubby was an ex that came back into my life 10 years ago.

No, I never had that even when I was on the dating scene. Seems like it could be painful or difficult to deal with. Once I was done dating them, I was just done with them, period.

Same here. Just not into that drama.

I have an ex that will sometimes leave nasty comments on my blogs and videos on YouTube and make response blogs/videos and things like that. It's very annoying.

Nope. I tend to have bad break ups so usually it's way too awkward for either of us to want to talk ever again.

Clever term--I haven't heard that before "boomerang ex"--I'm gonna start using that. My situation is posted in the Long Term forum under Skyping to Keep it Together. I appreciate advice on the matter!!

That would make me so mad! Isn't it possible to block him somehow?

Yeah...boomerang is the only way I know to describe it, though sometimes I've been known to recycle exes. lol.

Boomerang ex, Nice. No i don't have any problems emotionally. I had a few who thought they could stalk me though.

I only have one ex and I keep him far, far away now. He doesn't know my new address or phone number, specifically because I couldn't turn him down and it'd just be bad news.

I have before, but not in the last 6 years.

AH! I definitely had one but I am through with him for good. Every time either of us found ourselves single throughout college and even a little after, we'd call each other up.

One I'm married, two I never dated much so I don't have anyone that would fit the qualifications. However, if I was single I have a friend for a booty call every now and then when we needed it.

I have an ex that I still care for. I broke up with him terribly and was 19 and foolish. He's a sweet guy, he lives in Nova Scotia so no booty calls here, and we call and chitchat but otherwise, no. I usually get dumped so I don't bother back with them LOL

Haha. Well, apparently we ended up falling back in love with each other. Damn. It's like all those feelings never went away and only got stronger with time.

True love never dies or something, right?

But . . . he's still got things going on that keep him from me.



Crazy exes.

I don't. I am friends with an old ex of mine. We talk from time to time, but neither of us is interested in rekindling anything. We've both grown our own ways, although oddly we're actually more similar than when we dated years ago.

My husband feels no threat from this man (of course, his living about 2 thousand miles away may have something to do with it. He comes back to town fairly frequently (he's a musician, what can I say? He's all over the country.) but we've never even gotten the urge to get together.

It's just an old friend. Very comfortable.

The others? I don't see them, I have no idea where most of them are. I don't really care.
