Okay so today I got a call from my ex which I thought was odd being we had broken up a little over a week ago. Against my better judgment I answered it. Next thing I know she screaming about how she's going to kill herself because I dumped her. Upon hearing that I loss is and tell her off. I basically said "I don't give a fuck. You can cut your own throat, hang yourself, or whatever, but it isn't going to hurt me in the slightest." then hang up. Later I tell a few friends what happen and some say I may have went a bit overboard. Honestly I don't think I did because she is a manipulative and controlling bitch which is why I dumped her. I really don't know if she would really do it or not, but I wouldn't feel any guilty. I would just be glad to be rid of her for good. Is that bad.

You did nothing wrong. Controlling, manipulative little bitches need to hear this. She said it to get your attention and it didn't work. The second you react in such a way that shows you care, she'll think, "Yes, I got him to care," because people like this just can't stand the thought that they're not in the spotlight. Even if you react indirectly (i. e. calling the police, or her parents to relay the information) she will still find out and think she got to you enough to care. You dumped her for a reason and it sounds like there's a pattern to her behaviour. I absolutely despise people who make light of suicide like this for their own personal little gain to control other people. I had an ex who did this to me when I was 25 and when he told me each time he'd kill himself (in order to get his way with things) I'd fall all over him trying to appease him. One day I told him, "Well, do what you have to do then." He did make an attempt, but a feeble one. I still didn't budge. People in his camp thought I was cold, but it doesn't matter. They had no idea what I went through and wouldn't believe me if I told them.
I have a strong feeling this girl will be alive tomorrow. Maybe she'll learn a valuable lesson not to fuck around with using suicide cries to get what she wants. People who really are desperate for help will do it at times when you least it expect it, such as happy times at Christmas when it doesn't make sense to be sad. Breaking up includes heightened emotions and people like her will say the stupidest things as they get through their rejection period.
Good luck. I'm sorry you have to go through this, you're bringing back a lot of memories for me that made me so angry. :( You're doing the right thing, and it's the best thing you got rid of her. She'll never change. My ex didn't and from what I hear, he's driving his wife nuts with the same bullshit he put me through. They just never change, these attention whores.0
