Have you ever gone overboard in not wanting to leave someone alone?

Asked by GloPro (8248 points ) March 26th, 2014 from iPhone

Maybe you thought it was meant to be. Maybe you thought they would come around. Maybe you just needed one more chance to explain, or apologize. Maybe you weren’t quite sure what you were doing…

Have you ever regretted not being able to let it go? What did you do that was crossing the line or going overboard? How did you come to realize you were being excessive?

I did try more than I should have with one GF that I do regret not ‘cutting the cord’ sooner but never overboard.

Never done that. I always figured if you don’t want to be with me, screw it, I don’t want to be with you.

@Cruiser @Adirondackwannabe I figured you’d both say that… So I’ll start :-)
My breakup last year was too long, too drawn out, and too painful. I was having a lot of trouble sleeping so my doc gave me ambien. What a terrible idea for a known sleepwalker.
I have no recollection of doing this, and didn’t discover that I had done this until 3 days later, but I called my ex-boyfriend 64 times in about 90 minutes at 3 in the morning. I know I was dialing and not hitting redial or rolling over on the phone because apparently I dialed the wrong number 3 times, 3 different wrong numbers, and spoke to 3 different strangers in the middle of the night. They all filled me in when I saw this rediculousness on my phone days later and called them back.
I seriously hope his phone was off or that he cut his phone off after, oh, I dunno, the 10th phone call… He and I have never discussed it. I felt like a stalker.
I hope I didn’t leave 64 messages… Ugh.

Maybe we should be scared to be following you? I do the sleepwalking thing really bad. I’ve had to tie my door shut and lock it so I don’t wander out of the bedroom and doing something stupid. I’ll stay away from the ambien.

I’m more like @Adirondackwannabe, I step back and away. If you were on meds, and it came up, I’d just explain it and apologize. It as obviously an exception rather than the rule, so no worries.

@Adirondack Just don’t give me your phone number, hahahaha. I will not ever touch ambien ever again.
@KNOWITALL it’s been a year now. I’d rather just let him keep thinking I’m a crazy person than bring it up.

Maybe just my work number. You’ll get the voicemail.

I’ve taken guys back after they did really stupid things, but it was a mutual thing and they weren’t stalked by me. After break-ups, I watched and eavesdropped to see what they were up to, but not with any intention of wanting to talk to them or get back together. I had a crush on a boy at camp once when I was 15 and spent too much time trying to convince him I was his dream girl, but that was a few days out of a week, and I dropped it. His loss. I tend to have all the conversations in my own head and the words never see the light of airwaves. If I make an ass of myself, and it has happened, I never really feel the need to explain if the relationship is actually over. I went to a function once with an newly made ex with the sole purpose of trying to make him look like an ass. I didn’t do a very good job and he gave me a black eye as a reward for my efforts.
