I was with my ex for 6 years on and off. During this time he chated, left us because he got bored, among other reasons. I have set a standard for taking him back every single time. We have been broken up for going on 2 months now, and he calls and texts constantly. Telling me he will get his family back. He wont give up until he does. He will do whatever it takes. Now I have heard this all before, and I took him back believing him. But I have grown as a person over the last year, and have smartened up a bit. So no, this time I will not be taking him back. The amount of texts I get could be borderline harrassment. I have been advised to call the police. Now here is the problem, we have children together. I have no family where we currently live, the closest family I have is 2 hours away. SO in emergencies he is the only one I can call on to watch the kids or pick up the kids if I am working and connot leave. Not true emergencies obviously, but you get the point. Now I know I have shown him it is ok to do what he has done and I will take him back, so please dont knock me for that. But I need him to stop. I need him to move on. I will not take him back this time, I have learned that I do deserve better and so do my sons, whom I do not want learning his behavior. I ignore him as much as possible when he texts. but sometimes I get so mad because it is so much, I tell him to stop. But does anyone have any advice on what I should do in the best way possible with still being able to call on him when needed for the children only?? I just want to co-parent. nothing more. But he doesnt seem to want to give up.
