UGH Drama
« on: January 08, 2016, 03:06:00 PM »
So I was chatting with a nice guy, we'd been texting for awhile, seemed to be going well, swapped pics (none naughty) but then he messages me on Facebook telling me that his ex stole his phone and that any texts would not be from him. Wtf?? How should I handle this, just not respond to the number again period? Because how would I know who the texts were coming from. This is why I always just avoid relationships and stick to hookups because there always seems to be stupid drama.

I guess my thoughts would be, this person needs to report the phone as stolen, and have him notify the carrier, to immediately disable that device.

I had the guy I was talking to's ex on my facebook friends list and happened to notice that he said the guy (who I was talking to) had showed up and accused him of stuff, so both seem to be badmouthing the other. Don't know who to believe. The guy I was chatting to seemed nice, but not nice enough for me to get dragged into any drama. I blocked the number so now neither one of them can contact me I just don't need that shit. Word of advice, when you find out that someone you're chatting with just got out of a bad breakup, run the other way and just don't deal with them. Next!

Well, he could be a great guy, who just has a vindictive ex.  Of course, the ex could really be his current guy, but it would seem the ex would have said that. 

Not sure I would have given up on him so quickly, especially since you said he seemed very nice.

Well the guy who I had texted for a day or two had sent me a message on Facebook telling me that his ex had stolen his phone, and to disregard any messages. Of course in that situation one never knows who to believe because I didn't know either of them.

Anyway, didn't hear from the guy for a few days, he tells me he's working with the police to recover his phone. Anyway, sounds like way too much drama for me. I sent him a polite text wishing him well and hopefully he'll leave me out of his drama.

All that from simply chatting with a dude off Grindr. Sheesh. Fuck drama.

Hi Robby,...


I still believe you made the right decision, under those circumstances. Nothing changes  from my first comments to you in this thread.

Believe me,  life is so much better without drama !!!

Take care ---Ray

Thanks, yea, not sure why the guy felt the need to tell me his ex had stolen his phone, guess he wanted me to know in case I got any weird texts. But damn, people need to check their drama at the door before they start chatting up new people! He texted me yesterday stating that he had gotten a new phone & that he was through with his ex. I politely told him "hope you get things sorted out". NEXT! I can smell drama a mile away and if someone has drama with one person, they will start it with you the moment things get rough. I certainly will not be texting with him any more. Life is complicated enough without some dude from Grindr bringing his drama up in my life. So yeah, I am just fine being single and dating with no strings attached, thank you very much! Bloop.  Lol.

So someone tells you that their phone has been stolen, and you make 4 posts on an internet forum about it.

Drama much?

Sounds like the bloke you were talking to dodged a bullet.

First off check your attitude, BLOKE. You don't know me so don't make assumptions about me. I posted because I have not been in the dating game for awhile and wanted some advice when someone else like that other guy decides to dump a bunch of stuff about his ex on you when he's supposed to be interested in me.

I was simply attempting to get advice from others on how to handle someone who seems interested in you but then talks constantly about their ex. But anyway, whatever, I don't really care what you think so whatever, bye.
