Ex-boyfriend broke up with me but now acts like nothing happened!
My ex-boyfriend broke up with me out of the blue via e-mail with no explanation. Neither of us contacted the other for about a month.
About 10 days ago my ex-boyfriend sent me an e-mail with an explanation that was so improbable it's insulting, saying he just wanted to explain the sudden change. I didn't respond. The next day he sent me an e-mail acting like nothing had happened, but asking questions and hinting that he'd like to hear from me. At first I didn't respond. Then a week later, I decided to at least let him know I'm doing well, glad he's doing well, and not bitter. What I did may in retrospect seem a little childish, but I responded to his second e-mail (which had hinted for a response) with a simple smiley face
Well, since then he has sent me two flirty e-mails, the second of which hints about seeing me again.
So that's 4 e-mails, but only the first one acknowledges what happened between us. The subsequent 3 are practically as if nothing has happened. Even under his version of events, he made a unilateral decision based upon how he expected me to react without consulting me. I still have feelings for him, but he needs to know that I am not a doormat and it is not okay to give an improbable explanation for his behavior and then pick up where he left off. That would set a bad precedent were we to go forward. In essence to act as if nothing has happened is telling him he can dump me at any time just to come back any time he wants. That's not okay. How can I convey this message without seeming bitter? What should I say? Thanks
