Dear Carol

Nix the ex: How to deal with a bad-mouthing boy


 
This kid says mean things to me because I broke up with him. I’m really tired of it and want him to stop, but how?


Dear Annoyed Ex,

Breakups can be messy, but it sounds like his feelings are hurt. You could shout, “Look, it’s over so leave me alone!” But it would be kinder and more effective to say, “I wish we could be friends again. Let’s start over—I will if you will.” Do it in person, on the phone or online.
