16 People Who Shared Their Crazy Ex Stories and Blew Our Minds

2 years ago

There are many different reasons why couples break up, but sometimes it’s not both of them who want to move on. And usually, when one of them is still very much invested in the relationship, unexpected, if not crazy things can happen. From countless missed calls and messages to other more serious occurrences, exes can be very intimidating.

Now I’ve Seen Everything read a few unbelievable stories where exes completely lost their minds and went to scary lengths to hurt their former significant others.

  • There is an old mansion in my city where the husband got really creative. While the wife was touring around Europe on an extended vacation, the courts awarded her half of his property in their divorce. He had the front half of the house cut off, moved 8 miles, and added it to his new home. © Jer_Cough / Reddit
  • After breaking up, my ex stalked me and my new boyfriend. It was sick. He would come to my work and bring me lunch. HE NEVER DID THAT WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER! He called when I wasn’t at home and left me messages with love songs. It was so annoying! I had to go through all these messages just to get to the ones that other people left for me. It was only after I said some really bad things to him, that he realized what he had been doing the whole time. Then we became friends. © Anonymous / Quora

“My ex took the first wood table I built in the divorce, so I added concrete to the second one.”

  • My ex proposed to me publicly, at a bar, in front of all of our friends. He liked the way it went so much that he proposed to me 2 more times at 2 different places. In our hometown. In front of everyone we know. I said yes. 3 times. So, we set a date and I planned the whole wedding. Bought the dress, set up the hall, and chose the catering. Flowers. Everything. The only jobs he had were to buy/rent tuxedos for himself and his groomsmen, and to find someone to marry us on the date we had chosen. It was getting really close to our date and he hadn’t done any of the things that he agreed to do. I finally confronted him about it, about a month before this whole event that I had planned, at which time he told me that he was not going to marry me and that he didn’t think that I was going to take his proposal(s) so seriously and actually plan a wedding. 3 times! I am happily married to someone else now. © aubrey_25_99 / Reddit
  • Lied to her roommate about being able to afford rent. Had to sit there embarrassingly with her while she was kicked out. Left me there with all our stuff (since she had us previously evicted and I was crashing with her, mostly as moral support, codependency issues, amirite), and proceeds to call her “homies” to pick her up at 4 AM, leaving me stranded in the lobby. © y047h / Reddit
  • So I found this key at work last night. Being the good Samaritan that I am, I called the number. Turns out this guy’s ex-wife made about a hundred of these keys, put his number on them, and scattered them around the country on her road trip. He is now getting calls 24/7 because of it. This is some nuclear-level revenge. © NotaScientologist / Imgur
  • My ex and I were still together when he got expelled from college for some reason. So, he returned to his hometown, called me from there, and told me about his friend Sakshi. He once told me she wanted to talk to me through Google Talk, so she could tell me how awesome my boyfriend was and how much she loved him before she lost him because of me. And then I found out that my Facebook profile was blocked because someone tried to access it. And finally, I found out that Sakshi was a fake account created by my ex. © Anonymous / Quora
  • A friend of mine found a gif of the “I’m typing” dots that you can send to someone in a text. It just goes on and on forever. He sends it to his ex when she gets blabby. So far, she hasn’t caught on. © sweetmarrow / Reddit
  • My brother’s ex has been stealing our Netflix for the past 2 months now by disguising her account as “settings” and honestly I ain’t even mad. I’m just really disappointed in myself for actually believing that an account named “settings” would legitimately be Netflix settings. © imissavdol / Twitter
  • My friend’s sister dated a man that was 13 years older than her. One day when she came home she found a pair of women’s panties in their bed. She knew they weren’t hers. Instead of confronting him, she washed them and put them on. When he came home, his face was white and he was speechless. She told him “Look honey, I finally found those old panties I lost years ago!” She then served him dinner and looked him straight in the eyes and told him “I hope you enjoy your dinner. I made the sauce special for you, make you sure finish all of it.” He didn’t eat it. For several weeks, she was the perfect girlfriend: she didn’t argue, she kept the house clean, but she read a lot of books about criminals and watched similar shows. The guy became paranoid and thought that even his pillows were dangerous. In the end, he told her the truth and moved to a different town. © Leeza Fedosova / Quora
  • When I found out my girlfriend cheated on me, I broke up with her. I waited for her to start a new relationship and after that, I sent her a giant heap of flowers with a note about how perfect last night was. And then, I just watched. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • My ex played “World of Tanks” all the time. Once, I invited him to my place and he spent 6 hours at my computer. He really wanted to come to my place because my PC was more powerful than his. © “Podslushanoо” / Ideer
  • My roommate had a “crazy ex” who would call him 20 times and leave 5 voicemails a day. This had been going on for about a week or so and I asked him if he had ever listened to the voicemails or called her back and he said, “No, she is just being crazy.” The following week I talked to her roommate and asked why she was calling him so much. It was because he had “taken her virginity and she wanted it back.” Well besides that, the actual reason was that the night they broke up he apparently went to her house, took a bat, smashed all her windows, and slashed all her tires. Never knew my roommate was broken up so hard by it nor had the anger to go and actually act on it." © itsfoine / Reddit

“My co-worker got an interesting surprise at work today.”

  • My husband’s ex (just a girlfriend from high school) set up an appointment for a portrait session, to have pictures done of our 3 children for her house. No, we did not let that fruitcake take our children. They broke up their senior year of high school, and this happened when we were in our 30s. Shocked at being contacted by her, never mind the appointment, we found out she also had her phone number listed (we used phone books then) as Mrs. Our Surname all these years, which was never her name. She was still stuck in her high school fantasy, which was frightening. © FenceGirl / Reddit
  • My phone rings: “Hey just wanted to let you know that I’m getting married this afternoon and I’m pregnant so now is your last chance...” 2 years later my phone rings “Hey, I’m pregnant again and getting married again...this is your real last chance...© KylerTopFlight / Reddit
  • I suspected she was crazy long before I knew her, but I realized she was a sociopath when she asked me to euthanize my dog because “he was taking up too much of ’our’ time.” © lazlounderhill / Reddit

What is the craziest break up you or someone you know has ever experienced? Was it something that you brushed off or way more serious?
