If your recent ex were in trouble, would you be there for them?

Hypothetically you've just broken up with your ex less than a month ago, but you're still listed as their emergency contact because their family lives in another state/city and they didn't think to change their contacts because the break up just happened. The phone rings, it's the hospital saying s/he was in an accident, is incapacitated, and can you come down. What would you do?

  • I'd go. No matter how we broke up, I feel like it would be the right thing to do.
    Vote A
  • I'd go ONLY if we had a mutual break-up and it wasn't ugly.
    Vote B
  • I wouldn't go regardless of how we broke up. The minute we ended things, that ended all ties, emergency or not.
    Vote C
  • I'd first call to see if there was anyone else available, and if no one responded, then I'd go.
    Vote D

  • I would help, do the right thing ''as a person''. However I wouldn't be present of make myself present in their life enough to socialize with them. Help yes, but thats it. I am gone from their life, I dont exist and dont want to. My life is on a different path now and they are not in it.

  • I don't turn my back on people if my help can actually help them, even if we broke-up and I am mad.

  • Everyone knows that is the right thing to do. The difference between people is how selfish they are about wanting to stay angry.

  • I wouldn't hesitate. Maybe that's because I've never had a bad breakup.

    With my last long term girlfriend, she was even listed as a beneficiary on my retirement account for 10-12 years before I got around to changing it. I was perfectly OK with her getting it, so there was no hurry to change it.

  • I'd go no matter what, primarily because at the end of the day we're all in this life together and like it or not, we need to look out for each other; break up or not. Besides, they'd do the same for me. And if they won't then fuck it, I'd still arrive as soon as possible just because I'm fucking awesome.

  • If it was an amicable split, I would definitely visit to make sure she's not alone. If the circumstances under which we broke up were acrimonious, I'd still tell her family and pass on the details but I won't offer any more support than that.

  • i would go, simple because helping a person should never depend on relationship status or any other interest, and theworld is the shit it is today simple because people have lost so much conection with themselves that even helping someone in need is subjected to personal interest, its so shameful.

      He's incapacitated in the example. It's different if he asked you to come, then it is if a doctor says, he's out of it, and they need you to come down in case they need like authorizations for medical care.

    • 3d

      If doctors think I'm the best person to sign papers for medical care they're not very smart. And it is an unfair burden on me since no matter what I chose I'm stuck with the responsibility of that choice for life.

  • I'd go for sure!

  • I would definitely help. I still care for them, just because we broke up doesn't mean they're a bad person. Jesus why are so many people bitter these days.

      Well, they may actually be a bad person, which is why one answer choice asks if it depends on the circumstances of the break up. There are several really good reasons why some exs should not come in contact with one another ever again---and yes, there are those that are just bitter because they aren't together, but definitely not all.
