I Am Afraid of My Ex

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75 People

    He got out of prison back in October.

    I was receiving mail from him, so I took it to the police and reported it. They told me they would get back to me when they found out more information about it. I havn't heard a word about it in almost 4 months (which is frustrating). I'm scared.

    Crazy Meets Psychotic

    The relationship was my own fault -- I moved to a small town without a strong support network, let down any good judgement and allowed my vulnerabilities and mental illness to direct my poor choices, and succumbed to the flattery of a man who presented a very charming, smart side...

    Mostly I'm Afraid of Myself With Him

      I'm afraid that if he comes back here, apologizes & says he's changed.... I'll take him back. I'm afraid that he's planning this & waiting until I am so lonely, so scared, so utterly alone, that I'll take him back no questions asked. That I'll assume he's the best...

    Like a demon slithering from deepest pits of my

    nightmares I saw an all too familiar name try to add me on one of my various chat programs. The very thing cost me money, friends, and my health (both physical and mental) and made my a nightmare. When she spat in my face and said she never loved me anyway and I finally had the...

    Because He Might Kill Me

    That is why I am afraid of MY ex. I met this guy during my first year in community college and fell hard for him, even though he was 12 years older than me. I ended up moving in with him and spent four years of my life being his girlfriend. It was great for a while but he...

    What Do I Do??

    I can never seem to find a good man ever since I lost my first husband.  To start my story I got married young, and had two children. I was so happy for so long and then got bored taking my husband for granted and ended up cheating. After my divorce I got involved with mean men...

    I think it runs on fear. The whole thing. His whole modus operandi is getting what he wants through making people fearful of him. As I type this, I am afraid. I made a huge mistake and got involved with someone that I should never have got involved with. EVER. I used to be such...

    3 Years Later, And I Still Have Nightmares

    He never raised a hand to me. Never physically hurt me. If anything he was as honest as a psychopath can get I guess. I still remember when I met him. He was charming, charismatic, and I just felt drawn to him. I didn't know anything about him. I asked one of my friends who...

    He Scares The Hell Out Of Me

    When I was 14 I dated a guy who seemed to be really nice. After a few weeks he became obsessive. He would call me 15-20 times a day wanting to know where I was and who I was with and constantly telling me he loved me. It was creepy so I broke it off. He wrote me love letters...

    My Ex

    It was about six years ago. Really, I got off pretty easy compared to what a lot of women go through. I know he hit me some, but I was never injured. I don't even really remember it. There was a friend who saw it, and was always trying to get me away, but I wouldn't listen. She's...
