We’ve all been there because we’re older, but look at that message. As part time lurker said, it did exactly what he meant it to and now you’re wasting more time in your one precious life on this waste of space.
This is a great time to start exercising self control. Stop purposefully thinking of him. Redirect your thoughts when he comes up in them. Go out on some dates with better guys who don’t treat you badly, and don’t treat other people badly. It ended four months ago and was only four months long, right? Just stop with this guy. It can be that easy. You just have to block and block and never read a message or email from him again. See his name? Delete. Don’t even open it.
You choose what you spend your time on. Stop pining away for a guy that doesn’t really exist. This guy is crap and the only reason your relationship with him didn’t get worse is you had the sense (at the time) to stop seeing him. Remember that intuition, hold onto it and just do not engage with him ever again. Feel the power of not giving a shit about someone who treated you badly and continued to treat his girlfriend horribly. It’s awesome when you have the self control not to screw around with the bad exes that need to stay in the past.
