My ex boyfriend and I went out for a year and a half and when I broke it off, he didn't take it very well. He keeps all of the little romantic things I bought him spread across his room and keeps snapchatting me pictures of them saying he misses me. He's texting me and talking to my friends about how much he wants to see me and is convinced I'm going to go crawling back to that hell hole of a relationship. How do I make him understand that it's over and he needs to move on?

I don't know if my case was as severe as this, but I've been in his place. Make it brutally clear - like you're writing a lab report clear - that you have no intention of resuming your relationship ever. He has hope - maybe you've been amicable and he's taken that as a sign; it will save you and him time and stress to crush that hope. The obsession will break when he starts looking to other women, but he won't start doing that until he's clear that you aren't an option.
Good luck. I'm really sorry that we get like this, especially early on.0
