  • i've discovered that when men tell their new girls that their ex is CRAZY its because he did some really bad stuff to her and they don't want the new girl to believe the ex when she tries to warn her off lol

  • She was harrassing me to the point where I had to change my phone number... she's just got the personality to create drama... and I'm the polar opposite... I know that when I move there she'll try and make mine and my SO's life a living hell... My SO never told me she was crazy... I've flat out experienced it lol.

  • Just ignore her, she's trying to get attention. If she keeps calling you call the police and report harassing communications. She wants drama...don't give her what she wants

  • here's only one instance, may not be your situation... my dad was doing some crazy manipulative stuff to my mom behind the scenes. telling her crazy things about his new gf and really getting into details that should have been left alone. the whole time he was telling her he loved her and wanted only her, but he couldn't get rid of this new "crazy" girl. so my mom went nuts on her. acted totally crazy to out crazy the other crazy. she's relatively a sane person lol, she was just reacting to what he was doing to her. the gf had no idea about any of it except my mom going nuts on her "for no reason." my dad ended up making the new gf his 2nd "crazy" wife and later divorced her after getting her hooked on prescription pills and various other things... btw he's back with my mom now

  • State it simply to her. Her communication, contact and all other interference in your life is not going to be tolerated. She has no business in your life, and certainly none in your marriage. IF she does not refrain from contacting you, your husband, either of your work places or your family members you will report her harassment to the authorities. Make sure your friends are aware of who she is and know to ignore her. Otherwise the best you can do is keep record of all contact. Keep a diary of contact. Forward any text messages to an email address and save the messages. Fork out the money and keep a voice recorder in your purse at all times in teh event that she approaches you. Then if she escalates the situation you have proof to validate your charges of harassment and staking and can seek legal action. Always keep calm, don't raise to her taunts and know you have options. Been there. Hope this helps.

  • take legal action - don't let her back you into a corner - treat her like you would any other unwanted person who is harrassing you.
