Revenge of the Ex

When your significant other becomes an Ex

When your significant other becomes an Ex


The revenge of an ex can be one of the worse situations an individual can be placed in when leaving or transitioning into a relationship. Most of the time a previous lover, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife will act out or try to make your life hectic because they don’t want to leave the past alone.


Along with the idea of being in your past they may try to hinder you from moving forward with your love life. They don’t want to see you happy or progress to better things so they try to prevent it from happening. When it seems like the actions of an ex are out of anger, frustration and even insecurities it’s probably because they don’t want to let go of their past with you, hence the prevention of you moving forward.


There are different situations where an ex may retaliate or seek revenge, some with rightful causes and others not so much. Certain circumstances can prevail when your significant other has complete control all of the time; taking you for granted or just being plain unappreciative. You continuously ask yourself what you should do, stay and suffer or see what else is out there. For people who grow tired of that behavior, can finally gain the courage to walk away and move on in life. By moving on, the main objective is seeking something that makes them happy, which leaves the significant other in their past with the nonsense… changing the title to “an ex.”


On the other side of the spectrum an ex may seek revenge because of control issues; the psycho ex who believes if they can’t have you no one else can. These situations can be very dangerous and lead to death or serious harm/damage to be done. If circumstances become that severe for an individual, they are encouraged to seek help from law enforcement or those who are truly looking to get you out of the situation.  Many people change their identities and relocate because of the severity of a “psycho ex.”


Rather there were good times or bad times, everyone has a past, some more severe than others but never forget it is called your past for a reason. Use the past as a guide to help you move forward in life and not stumble across the same mistakes as before. Getting over someone you love is never easy but when your situation takes a turn for the worse and all options have been exalted, it is time to let go and move on.






Do You Have A LDR?

Posted on: February 17th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

LDR, meaning long distance relationship, of course! So, are you involved in a LDR?

Or maybe you want to look for a possible relationship in a different state… different country maybe? Hey, don’t knock it till you try it, right?… I personally foresee some obstacles but it could be turn out to be the adventure of your life to find the love of your life.

While browsing the Internet, I found this article that helps you keep in touch with your love across the ocean and will keep you from racking up your phone bill. Download these apps for your phone that were created specially for a more intimate environment!

1) Couple (free!): This app is geared towards couples because you can only choose one other “pair” with who you share a timeline with- you can post video messages, chat, drawings and/or photos. When you are both on the app at the same time, you can even “ThumbKiss” which is a genius feature where you can touch the screen exactly where your partner is, making both phones vibrate. Clever!
2) Skype (also free!): You can either call, instant message or video chat. It’s free for laptops, tablets and even phones! It’s better than using up your cell phone minutes! ;) However, your partner does have to be signed up on Skype for the call to be free; otherwise, there is $$ involved.
3) WhatsApp Messenger (free is the magic word!): This app is a cross-platform messenger that works across all smartphones. For example, if you have an iPhone with iMessage but your partner does not, you can’t send emoticons but this app, WhatsApp, lets you! Video, voice notes and images are also included for the low price of FREE!
4) Cartolina (costs $2 but not too bad!): Use this e-card app as an email or text message alternative. Cartolina also provides beautiful and vintage-inspired “cartogram” designs for your messages. This app also syncs with your calendar, so it reminds you of birthdays or anniversaries or other important dates that involve your partner.

I thought this article was a great idea and so helpful because I didn’t even know some of these existed to help LDRs! So useful… technology is really stepping up its game.
