7 Signs You Are Being Used as an Emotional Crutch ...


If you have just gone through a breakup, you need to know the signs you are being used so you don’t become your ex’s emotional crutch.

After a breakup that you didn’t initiate, chances are you want to keep in contact with your ex because you are hoping he might change his mind.

The thing is, although this can occur with some relationships, its more likely that he sees you as his backup girl.

Since you deserve so much better than that, I’m going to share the signs you are being used as an emotional crutch.

1. More than Friends

Does your ex still act like your boyfriend?2

If so, then he is still texting, calling, sharing your bed and spending time with you.

One of the signs you are being used is when an ex acts like a boyfriend but won’t commit to you.

While you keep hope alive that you will get back together, the truth is that this pseudo-boyfriend is using you until he finds something better.

Tell him that you aren’t interested in having a pretend-boyfriend;

you want a real man that can commit.

2. Can’t Let Go

Your ex says that he needs you in his life because its too painful to cut ties completely.

He’s keeping you in his life so he doesn’t have to face the pain of losing you.

The thing is he is keeping you in relationship limbo.

This is the equivalent of emotional sabotage because you can’t move on to someone new with an ex in the picture.

3. Wants to Date Others

In this case, your ex is dating others casually.

But he is also dating you as well.

This type of ex is selfish because he wants to continue having you at his beck and call while he explores dating other people.

The moment he finds someone else, you can bet that things will dramatically change as he turns her focus to someone new.
