There is a reason an ex is an ex. But sometimes it’s not good enough that you are no longer with someone. Sometimes it seems like no matter what happens, this person seems to be under the mistaken impression that he still has a say in what goes on in your life. Whom you hang out with, who your friends are, etc. Hello! You are an EX! It becomes even more infuriating when the other party was the one who decided to end things but still seems determined to continue to mark you as his territory.
We aren’t together anymore. This means you don’t get to whine to me or complain that I’m not still catering to your every desire the way I did—or attempted to do—when we were together. This means I don’t have to listen to you being a jerk, and I will tell you so. This also means that you don’t get to ignore my questions anymore or just cause you say you will “let me know” that I will allow the topic to drop!
Do not tell me to just trust you. You lost the privilege of my trust long ago and just because you now try to claim to be worth of it, doesn’t mean I agree.
means that who I chose to be friends with is MY business, not yours. And don’t try to threaten me over who I choose to hang out with. It just shows you are being petty and makes me think that you regret that we aren’t together anymore. Oh well. I’m happier and that’s all that matters TO ME.
Or what about the flip side of that? When you have a guy you’re dating who says that there isn’t anything serious going on. There’s nothing serious, and both of you can see other people, but if you – God Forbid – DARE to flirt with another member of the opposite sex, he’s right there making sure people know that you are together…so to speak.
What about when he refuses to admit that there is something more between you, but a lot of his friends assume you are a couple because of the way he marks you as his territory when you are out together?
In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with someone marking me as their “territory”. I’m guilty of it myself—most people are, whether they realize it or not. It’s in the way you grab your sweetie’s hand cause you think another person is paying too much attention to him/her. Or how you lean just a little closer, giving a very public display of affection for all to watch so they can know you two are together. There’s nothing wrong with any of that.
But seriously people, make sure you have the right to mark the territory before you do! This will help you to avoid many unpleasant scenes.
