My Ex calls all the time...

My Ex and I broke up over a year ago, and he never used to call at all about our son. He just sees him every other weekend. Recently, he started dating someone and now calls at least 5 times a day, and texts me. Am I wrong or is this a little excessive? I've always called him and let him know if our son was sick or if i was doing something different with him. He never had any interest until now...

  • Eek. Well it's his relationship funeral. I wouldn't answer though. Maybe text back once or twice but tell him you have a life and you don't have time to sit around answering all of his calls.

  • does he want to look like a good parent?

  • He has to impress the new girlfriend. Hopefully she will help him see how much he should be involved with his child. I would tell him one or two calls a day should be sufficient though and that you will not answer a third, fourth or fifth one.

  • Are you sure it's him texting & not his new love interest? Unless it's important, try ignoring some of the calls/texts. That is a bit much. I don't even talk to my husband that much throughout the day!

  • Sounds like he is trying to impress the new girlfriend. I would call him out on it and tell him he can call once a day and that's it. That is more than enough to be a good parent.

  • His new girlfriend has tried contacting me, they just started dating like a month ago, an she's already met my son, I think that is way to early to introduce a girlfriend to your child.
    And yes, I think he is trying to impress in girlfriend, but its just making her jealous, and makes her think he wants me back, which he probably does.

  • I have told him that, and I've asked his girlfriend not to contact me, they've already broke up twice and gotten back together, mind you... It's complete drama, and I don't want anything to do with it. I've been dating my boyfriend for 6 months, and never once have I gotten him in the middle of anything. We have a good relationship and he has just recently met my son, and it went very well.

  • Maybe the new girlfriend is making him change? Or he is just trying to make a good impression?
