Monday Man-Day: Crazy Ex-Girlfriends
This edition of Monday Man-Day is all about the baggage our guys have: Psycho Ex-Girlfriends. We’ve all been there. Maybe she just can’t let go and keeps texting him “I want you back” messages. Maybe she’s going the mean route and starting rumors about you. Maybe she’s just really stinkin’ pretty and likes to make it known through her Facebook profile pictures. Either way, this girl sucks.
But it’s how we handle these psycho exes that I’m interested in.
Option 1: Compulsively check her facebook profile. Because really we’re all a little low in self-confidence and it feels good to know what she’s up to and that she still hasn’t found anyone else. This isn’t that drastic of an approach, and lots of times you can’t see her whole profile if you aren’t friends with her anyway.
Option 2: Compulsively check her facebook profile AND your boyfriends text messages. Make sure there isn’t anything fishy going on. And if she’s texting him, you let him know you’re not cool with it.
Option 3: Make up a fake facebook profile and/or use someone else’s facebook to figure out what this girl is doing. Maybe you even get your boyfriend’s password and start looking around his account. This is where it starts to get a little out of control…
Option 4: Ignore it completely and be confident enough to know that your guy chose you and you have nothing to worry about.
I’m somewhere between #1 and #4. I’ve never been one to use border-line stalker methods, but I realize that my level of ignoring the problem isn’t the norm for most girls. I’m just a weirdo.
So tell me…
