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? 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.

@Pattyannee, Don't wait for him any longer!! You deserve a guy who knows what he wants. Life is too short to be waiting on a guy that doesn't know if he wants to be in a relationship. Cut ties with hi...
