Pity his new love
QI’m still friendly with my ex, and he kept our old place. His new girlfriend’s moved in now, and I’ve just met her.
She keeps messaging me questions now… When’s bin collection day, which doctor’s good, which neighbours do I like..?
The other night, she even phoned and cried on me, saying I was her only friend! She’s moved miles to be with him and has no-one. I feel sorry for her – but what should I do? Katy, 27 A Blimey, does she want to go through your knicker drawer, too? If she can message you, she can contact other people.
Your ex and his girl aren't your problem. Don’t feel bad for cutting ties – ignore her or, next time, politely tell her to ask your ex or ring the local council.
