Ex’s checking in to see “what’s up”?
Now let’s be real, we all know what that means…your ex isn’t calling or emailing to be friendly…they are contacting you for 1 of 2 reasons:
*They got married/passed the bar/doubled their salary and wanted to
gloat and tell you what you missed out on share their good news.
*They are checking in to see if they can still “get in”.
I think men are more notorious for doing this than women. Women will do that Jill Scott-esque “I was just thinkin bout you” call, but men? Men will call, and call on a schedule! They be checking in every 6 months or so, trying to see if you’re still free. Hanging on and whatnot. Basically making sure they can get back in if they really want/need to.
I guess I can’t really knock that hustle…I mean, everybody needs a backup plan. But that’s why I don’t keep up communication with an ex. We broke up for a reason, you need to no longer exist (cue Miranda from SATC). I’m just not interested in doing the chit-chat thing with an ex. I dont particularly want to share my good news with you. I don’t really want to hear yours. I could care less that you’ve been thinking bout me, cause I don’t give relationship do-overs.
Is it just me? Anybody else do the check-in with the ex? Anybody else hate it?
