I lent him money, he said he'd pay it back. For whatever reason he's not. I don't care about his reasons I just want it back.
But, I really don't want to call him, message him or email him, I just don't want to be in touch with him. He will just think I am contacting him and using the money as an excuse to try get back together and I'm 1000000% not.
I've left it for the last 4 months because of that reason and was resigned to the fact of not getting it back but I fucking want my money, its mine, it's not chump change, and it's making me angry.
How and what can I do?
I don't want to hire a debt collector as they will charge me about 500/1000 to get it back.
What would you do? Do you have suggestions options ideas?
Please help? I am so desperate to get it back.

You didn't make him sign a promissory note? If not forget it, your money is gone since even if you sue him it's nearly impossible to prove verbal agreements. Learn from your expensive mistake and don't repeat it. This is why I wouldn't even loan $1 to my own mother and why no one with a brain loans money to anyone without a contract signature and collateral. He probably knew this and planned to screw you the whole time, otherwise he could have simply went to a pawn shop. If I was in your predicament I'd simply make friends with a few guys bigger than him and have them take it out of his hide if he didn't pay. After the cash is recovered pay them a cut for their efforts if it's thousands of $ (half or 3/4 is better than none).1

How much did you lend him?
Honestly I'm not totally sure what your options are, you may want to speak to a lawyer or someone who understands the laws around these types of situations. But contacting him in a firm manner is also an option. You could even threaten to sue him over it if he doesn't pay up- it might scare him into cooperating. If you contact him in a calm, professional manner, and you only talk about the money (nothing else), then I don't see how he can misconstrue your reasons for getting in touch. He must be aware that he owes you money, so he can't be too surprised if you want it back...0
