why does my ex-boyfriend insist on being friends?
My ex and I broke up four months ago. He lied about several things, so therefore, I couldn't trust him anymore, so I broke things off. He still insists that we maintain a friendship; in fact, he's friends with nearly every girl he's dated.
The thing is, I don't want to be friends with, and I've told him this several times. I've been nice and not-so-nice. Since I can't trust him, why would I want to be friends with him? He has a new girlfriend already and I really have a problem with him calling and trying to confide things in me and I don't think she would like it either.
Since I don't answer my cell phone when he calls, he's started to dial my work number and leave messages. I last talked to him about three weeks ago and said, very firmly, "I do not want to talk to you. Please leave me alone. I do not want to be friends with you." To which he replied, "Well, you've given me several hints that you don't want to be friends with me, but I've pretty much ignored them I guess." The last thing he said to me was, "Just because I'm not calling you anymore (as if it was HIS idea), doesn't mean I don't care about you...I really do care about you." I replied, "No, you don't care, because if you did, you wouldn't have lied to me."
He started calling again yesterday. What's his problem?
