I Can’t Get Over My Ex And We Work Together – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's dilemma:
I am having a hard time getting over my abusive ex-BF (on and off for 3+ yea) because I have to see him at work, but I love my job and do not want to leave....especially in this economy.
We had a strong physical attraction that kept me coming back to him. I thought I was almost over him until last winter, when he started pursuing me again. We ended up spending a passionate night together, at which point he told me he was seeing someone else but would always love me. After thinking it over, I told him it would prob be best if we don't talk other than over work issues. He hung up the phone on me and blocked me.
Since then he keeps having his GF (the one he cheated on) drive to our office and meet him there, and hang out in front of me (walking by my office a million times, etc.). There is no reason for her to be there, as she doesn't work there and does not need to come and sit in his office while he is working. He will give me dirty looks and refuse to even say hello.
I finally saw him alone and told him I wished him the best and I hoped we could at least act cordial at work, and I was sorry if I hurt him by ending things, and he was very angry and said I had hurt him and stormed off.
I'll be honest and say I still have feelings for him, for whatever reason (maybe just the passionate physical thing?) but I could not continue with someone who treated me so badly. It was just awful, and scary at times to see his anger. I feel like every time I see him walk by with the new GF, and he looks to make sure I see them,it just opens up the scab for me. It is actually making me depressed.
I do not understand why he can't just act cordial at work, for the sake of both of our jobs.
