The Question Club
I broke up with my ex at the beginning of the year, and after several ups and downs, we are now on pretty good terms. I have since entered another relationship (with a guy I'll call Ben) and he has been seeing a girl (who we'll call Sarah) without any labels. He knows about Ben, and I know about Sarah.|
Today, my ex sends me a random text that read:
Quick question: is Ben as affectionate as I was? Because Sarah said this morning that she's never been with anyone as affectionate (in a touchy way, such as arm around shoulder) as I am.
I don't really remember how much affection we displayed to each other to be completely honest.
Not to be nosy, but I'm curious: do you both say "I love you" yet? And if so, who said it first?
Seriously, wtf? This is none of his business, right? I don't give a crap about his situation with this girl Sarah, so why is he so concerned about my situation with Ben??
We've talked on the phone occasionally since the breakup (only because he'd text first asking me to call him because he had to ask me a question about something specific but things that only I would know, such as the phone number of a mutual friend), and then he would somehow segue into nonchalantly asking about my current boyfriend.
Does this indicate that he's still interested in me and thus keeping tabs on me?
Should I respond to his text, or not? If so, what would be an appropriate thing to say?
