  • My ex wife did this. Even going as far as sending me "accidental" texts that were meant for the guy she left me for. It didn't work, made me more thankful that she left!

    Some people are just narcissistic. If they see their actions are not effecting you like they think it should, they will go out of their way to try and create the reaction they were looking for.

    Don't give it the time of day and find yourself someone who is worthy of you.

  • So you don't lose feelings over them so they can get a ego boost off it or have you as optional if it don't work out with someone else. Completely ignore

    • Cause if they still wanted you they wouldn't have broken up with you in the first place

  • Sound like they wanna engage a game. For a 25 + yo, i find it quite dishonorable. Words will go around for him.

    The message is mostly "look, i have a better life now." But that would hurt you.

  • Man/boys, they don't try to make a girl jelous, it's never a man's trait, it simply means the person has moved on, or trying alternate options to move on in life and want to heal his emotional state with the company of other girl (s)

  • The question is really simple and open to interpretation. There could be many reasons, would you care to elaborate on some specifics of the relationship and how it ended?

  • Because I don't think you really lose feelings for a person you were so close with. They are always going to care what you think! so of course they want to try and impress you (aka make you jealous)

  • They probably regret breaking up with you and are now trying to get you to dislike them so they have a reason to in turn dislike you. OR you're reading too much into the situation.

  • Could be that they wanna get back with you. So by trying to make you jealous they actually want you to instigate that getting back part.

  • It's in our nature.
    You often want things you can't have. He can't have you anymore, so he wants to make you jealous.

  • Because that person was open to you at some point, and they feel vulnerable and weak so they make you feel weaker for wanting them back

  • I feel like it's because they themselves can't get over the relationship and want you to regret the breakup as much as they do
