  • He is being very selfish. It seems like he wants to keep you single cause he doesn't want another man to make you happy and have you forget about him. Also it seems that he likes to control you and is doing so by you obeying his wishes. I would not listen and go be happy with someone else cause he is being a Jerk and no one deserves to be controlled by a S/O.

  • That is so nuts. But once my ex came over and the gardener (he did not know it was the gardener) and I we talking under a tree about how he should trim the tree. My ex asked our daughter who it was and she in typical kid fashion says, I don't know. I finished talking to the gardener then went up to the house and my ex was crying!! He said how could you just look at me and turn and talk to another man. Now he cheated. We had been divorced for 4 years. He was married and had two kids with his new wife! I was like are you f--king kidding me?

  • He does not want any man taking care of his son but its your life your choice, so he cannot stop you from moving on when someone of interest comes your way.

  • If you two are not in a relationship anymore. He has no right asking that of you. Why did he ask that of you ?

  • It's a machismo thing. He doesn't want anyone else having what he considers his. Meaning you & your child. If you 2 are truly done, then he has no say in how you choose to move on with your life. It's your life to live. As long as he has an active role in your child's life, he has no reason to be insecure about his role as a father.

  • It is selfish of him. If he doesn't want you, then he needs to let you find someone that does.
