If you’re out in the dating field for a while before meeting your perfect someone, you’re bound to get a crazy ex—if not a few. It doesn’t take much for someone to become a crazy ex. The truth is that, emotional health is hard to come by and it’s something that not everyone achieves. We all have pain from our past, and incidents in our lives that have left us a little unstable—perhaps a little codependent. Not everyone is brave enough to go to therapy and put in the personal work it takes to become a whole, emotionally sound individual. And those who weren’t willing to do the personal work, well, they’re still out there…dating. There are a lot of them, and if you encounter one and break up with him, he’ll likely be a crazy ex. Some people don’t handle rejection well. I feel bad for them, really, but that doesn’t change the fact that a crazy ex can make your life a living hell. I feel bad for them, but not so bad that I’m going to let them keep bothering me. Here is how to exorcize a crazy ex from your life.
Block, block, block
Don’t even hesitate to block. Don’t give a crazy ex the benefit of the doubt. He will use every avenue to reach out. Block all of his email addresses. Block him on social media. Block his phone number. Get on top of this, right away.
