After six years, a 33-year-old man reconnected with his ex and was optimistic they could rekindle their love. The man was over the moon after his ex accepted his meet-up proposal. However, after a few letdowns, he realizes they were not meant to be.
Reconnecting After Years
The original poster, Levi, was recently contacted by his ex-girlfriend (27), who broke up with him six years ago.
In their conversations, they talked about the past. She also mentioned she was separating from her current boyfriend.
After talking for a week, Levi asked her if she wanted to meet. She said she would love to meet up with him.
Levi was thrilled, and he made a reservation at a lovely restaurant.
The First Letdown
Levi arrived at the restaurant early and waited for his ex. After waiting for 10 minutes, Levi texted his ex and asked if she was on her way.
However, she didn’t respond to his text and never arrived at the restaurant.
Levi left the restaurant and drove home, wondering why his ex had stood him up. “Could she be hurt? Could her battery have died on the way?” he wondered.
Levi hoped she was alright; he also hoped she had a good reason for standing him up.
The next day, Levi received a text from his ex. She apologized for not showing up for the date but offered no explanation for her absence.
When Levi asked if she was alright, she said she was OK and changed the subject.
Another Meet-Up Plan
The two kept in touch, and after some time had passed, Levi asked if they could meet. Once again, his ex accepted his invitation.
However, this time Levi didn’t make reservations at a restaurant. Instead, he stayed at his house and waited for her to send a text confirming she was on her way.
Unfortunately, his ex didn’t text.
The following morning, Levi woke up to an apology text. But once again, she offered no explanation for standing him up.
The two continued talking, and Levi later learned that his ex was having financial problems. He told his ex he would help her if the two got back together.
However, Levi said he needed to gain her trust first, especially considering how she had stood him up two times already.
On hearing the terms, Levi’s ex-girlfriend told him she didn’t need a “sugar daddy.”
The relationship that Levi once hoped would lead to happy moments was falling apart.
One week later, she called and asked if she could spend the night at his house. He agreed and invited her to come over.
They drank wine and made out that night. Before leaving in the morning, the two made plans to meet again at his place.
The following day, she asked Levi to drop her off at the airport. He agreed to take her; however, the day before her planned departure, she failed to respond to Levi’s texts.
Several days later, the ex sent him a text explaining that her phone had broken.
A few days later, she sent Levi a screenshot showing an email from her landlord threatening to evict her from her apartment if she didn’t pay her rent immediately.
Levi texted her back, saying he was sorry she had to go through that.
The next morning, Levi received an angry text from his ex. She said that Levi let her down and accused him of not caring about her.
He told her he didn’t trust her because she had bailed on him several times.
External Opinions and Moral Dilemma
After a heated argument, she claimed that if Levi cared, he would have helped without asking any questions.
Levi’s family members told him he made the right decision. However, his workmates told him he should have helped her.
Financial Independence Claims
“. . . She doesn’t need a sugar daddy; she can care for herself,” one person said. “But seriously, you never agreed that you’d pay her rent. She’s been playing you the whole time. Odds are her ‘ex’ really isn’t an ex.”
Learn and Move On
“First of all, she’s an ex, so sometimes you just have to realize if things haven’t worked in the past, that the issues from last time don’t magically disappear, and it’s better to move on with your life with no contact,” another advised.
“But she’s scamming you,” another said. “There’s a reason she’s an ex! You need to leave her in the past. She wants nothing to do with you, and don’t listen to your coworkers; they’re not too bright either!”
Prioritize Your Emotional Well-Being
Levi’s relationship with his ex was quite tumultuous.
Although he second-guessed his decision to not help her, he protected himself from potential manipulation.
