Dr Phil: Obsessing Over Your Ex
Victoria said she doesn’t know how to live without Nathan in her life. They broke up two months ago, but she has plotted ways to get him back. She’s made up pregnancies, called him 200 times a day and harassed him to get him back. Nothing has worked, so she’s come to Dr. Phil to try and fix things.
Dr Phil: Nathan’s Story
Nathan wishes Victoria a happy and healthy life but he doesn’t want to be with her. In one hour he got five calls, three voicemails and 30 texts from Victoria.
“Call me I miss you,” “Say something,” “I love you,” “I’m sorry, please answer,” are all messages he gets daily from Victoria. The texting has made his new girlfriend angry and she wants her to move on.
Dr Phil: Life Without Nathan
Victoria said she had mixed emotions about seeing Nathan again. She’s not sure if she really misses him. She feels a love and hate towards him after talking to Dr. Phil. Nathan said they broke up the week before Christmas because Victoria was putting down his family. Since then they met up to exchange things and slept together a few times. He said his feelings for her kept coming back and he finally cut it off a month ago.
Dr Phil told Nathan that because of the history Victoria has he needs to leave her alone. Sending mixed messages are not good for her. The on again off again, highly manipulative nature of their relationship is not good. Dr. Phil wants Victoria to focus on herself and not bitterness or anger.
Victoria is still worried that she can’t be happy without Nathan, but she wished him a happy life. She knows she will regret the things she did in the future and wants to build a solid life without Nathan. She promised to work on not calling him.
