Ibroke up with a man I’d been see­ing for two years about three months ago. I’ve made it clear that we’re over but we stay in touch as friends. Last week I got an irate call from his mother say­ing maybe it suited me but it meant he couldn’t move on. She even said I should get my mother to ‘un­friend’ him as he spends so much time on­line check­ing her feed for stuff about me. Should I tell him how she’s try­ing to in­ter­fere, or keep quiet?

Suzie says:

I wouldn’t tell him about his mother’s call but then nei­ther would I keep in con­tact with him. You don’t give me the im­pres­sion that you stay in touch be­cause you value him as a friend but be­cause it’s eas­ier than fin­ish­ing the re­la­tion­ship for good. In that, she has a point. Peo­ple of­ten pre­tend that this ap­proach is kinder. It isn’t. It’s sim­ply not fair. End it by telling him it was good while it lasted but is now over. Then, block both of them on so­cial me­dia and yes, ask your mother to do the same.
