Just because two people Break up doesn't mean they can't and don't Make up and that it's Good-bye, my love forever. And with an "EX" who still Marks his X so-called Care to Dare in your heart, there is Now motive in mind when it comes the time when He may Be... Very mean to me.
With no strings attached here, dear, no being hooked at the hip like before, he is taking your 'We stayed friends' and is now turning into a situation which he feels he has control Of... In other words, he is pulling the puppet strings.
He knows you are Friends with or without benefits and with this in his head, he can be the Master of this domain, treat you the way he wants to, and knows you will put up with it because apparently, you are Continuing to let him be 'Treating me like dirt.'
Don't be his Enabler in This relationship. You say you did 'Absolutely nothing wrong' when you were two birds of a feather so why Allow yourself to Keep picking up the problem path pieces of having him henpeck you to death even now?
Set him straight with telling him you are Not his door mat and if he doesn't heed to your wary Warning... Give him his walking papers and fly south.
Good luck. xx0
