  • If he's throwing tantrums like a toddler because he's not getting his way, treat like a toddler, ignore, ignore, ignore!!!!! Don't talk to him unless it has to do with your kids(if you have any together. Don't talk about anything personal, point blank, period. He's your EX. It's none of his business. And he can only come over to your house to pick up your kids (if you have any together).
    If he is your ex and your dating someone else, he needs to become an irrelevant part of your life, and quick.

  • Tell him if he wants to remain friends, he needs to know what the limits are.
    1) He can only comes over when you and your bf gives the okay. Sleeping over is off limits.
    2) There is no talk about loving or missing each other.
    3) You will not talk about your bf to him until he is ready and realizes you're no longer with him.

  • being your ex he does not need to be over at your house that much, its not healthy for you or him, you will be able to see this later .

  • That's why you need to get it to him that if he can't handle these limits, you can't stay friends. He needs to grow up or the friendship is over.
