Exclamation BFF's ex. Help please? - February 3rd 2009, 11:05 PM

This is sort of long, but I think it's necessary to know the whole story...
Also I'm sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, I wasn't quite sure where to put it.

So my best friend was going out with a guy that we met at the gym a while ago; I wasn't too enthusiastic about her going out with him because he's turning twenty and she's only sixteen, but I still supported her the best I could. He had been pressuring her, and at times he had even scared me a little. I told her how I honestly felt about him, and about a week later she broke up with him (not my fault, she was fed up with how “clingy” he was.) However, I guess somewhere along the break out, he found out what I had told my friend.

The day after she broke up with him he started texting me non-stop. He’d ask me questions and all that sort of stuff. I tried to be as polite as I could, but eventually I got fed up and told him I couldn't text him because I had to work. His reply was less then friendly, and then he accused me of convincing my best friend of breaking up with him. He threatened that he would get me, and normally I wouldn’t think much of it, but right now it's scaring me. I don't know him, nor do I know what he’s capable of. I haven’t told anyone else, mostly because I'm afraid that if I tell someone, something might happen to them. I'm not sure what to do or say, can someone please help me?

You should probably talk to a parent or guardian. They're older, wiser and they'll protect you like a lioness protects her cubs. It may get to the point where you will need to talk to your local police about it though. He is threatening you, which is illegal. Talk to your mobile provider to see if they can change your number, or make it so he can't call you. How did he get your number in the first place?

Hi Lindsay,
It's fine if your posts are long. We really don't mind. And welcome to TeenHelp!

You should talk to an adult- a guardian or teacher- about this immediately. Do not let it get too far. Have someone else aware of what he texted. If you can, save the texts just in case.
If he threatens you, tell someone about it. Do what you have to to report it. It was not your fault your friend broke up with him.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Thank you both, and I will try and talk to my parents about it.
