  • 1. Stop calling him. Unless it has to do with visitation or child support don't talk to him. And when you do ask him the 1-2 questions you need to know, and hang up. Don't attempt to make small talk, don't attempt to control him.
    2. Rebound if necessary.
    3. Set higher standards for yourself.

    I am not trying to be mean, but you need to find a guy that is not a complete dumbass. You can't make anyone act like an adult nor can you change anyone if they're not ready for it. GL!

  • quit forcing him to be with you. you are just making him more angry. he can see the child without seeing you and it sounds like that's what he wants. u are giving him mixed messages and that's not good. u want to get over him but you want to be with him. do one or the other but you can't do both

  • Go on as if you don't care, play a little hard to get. Why would you want a guy that drinks all the time, your young and if you need or want to start over do it now. If not, play hard to get and let him suffer and want to come back. When he wants to, let him know what the rules are before, he needs to grow up and be a man for that little girls sake, if not for yours.

  • he's a dick. stop trying to play happy little family with him. he obviously has no intention of trying to be an adult - he couldn't be one when he was with you, and now he wants to blame you for ruining his convenient situation by refusing to continue to enable him. he is not capable of being an adult - he is a thief and an alcoholic. i know it's painful for you right now, but you have to do what is best for you and your daughter, which is to not interact with him other than what is necessary - i.e. you let him know about the open house, but you let him put forth the effort to show up and do it on his own and don't expect him to be there with you. this will only serve to confuse your child even more... also, let me suggest al-anon...

  • I agree totally don't call him unless necessary. Let him run you down for a while. If u have to drop your daughter off look damn good when you go over there.As long as you keep running him down he will give u his ass too kiss. Because he will feel that you need him so stop it.

  • Another thing only if he doesn't have your daughter,when he calls don't pick up the phone. Let him think you have a life without him. You can call maybe a day later maybe 2 days. But let him think you don't need him or even think about him.

  • He's got problems. Next time don't ask him to go with you. His immaturity is showing up loud and clear. When you consider asking him to go again to something, remember what happened. Then you won't make the same mistake again. If you go anywhere with him acting like that, you have two children to deal with. One is enough.
