I have an ex who is very in touch with me. I don’t respond much, but I do sometimes. I don’t want to be rude. Recently though, he’s be pretty obviously trying to make me jealous and get me back. It’s not working at all, mostly because I’m not a jealous person, but also because he’s doing it in a really weird way.
First, he sent me a text with details on meeting up for a first date and then quickly wrote “Whoops! Wrong person. Sorry!” He has an iPhone. So, it’s almost impossible to misfire a text. And I wasn’t jealous at all. Going out on an awkward first date with a stranger is nothing I’d EVER be jealous about. I think first dates are the worst.
Then, he sent something really weird. He wrote me yesterday saying:
I lost a bet and had to ask a girl at the beach to cover my back with ranch dressing instead of sunscreen. She totally did it. What do you think?
Um, WTF? A stranger covering you in ranch dressing on a hot, sandy beach? Literally, I can think of nothing grosser. Not only did that not make me jealous, it made me wonder why I ever dated him in the first place. Gross. Gross. Gross.
Ever tried to get an ex back? Or had one try to make you jealous? Did the jealousy attempts ever completely backfire? Tell us in the comments!
