Again, exactly what @kate said. Time. Block. Don’t respond. Date. Rinse. Repeat.
I dated a master manipulator another lifetime ago. We ended it. But I didn’t block him from everything. I still wanted to think the best of him and/or didn’t want to be “mean”, I dunno. Occasionally he’d reach out and I’d spiral for a few days. The first couple of years, I’d respond and then feel like shit after. Finally, I cut it off and I felt so, so free. Don’t do what I did. You’ll be happier. I promise.
