Why does he talk badly behind my back to his friends, but end up staring and trying to be near me whenever I'm around?
My ex has talked badly about me since the day he found out I had an interest in him, and he STILL DOES. It's been a year now, and he doesn't have the guts to tell me why he acts the way he does. He is more concerned about what others think of him, and tries to impress everyone around him. (Yet, he has few friends, and he doesn't treat them right) I have been FAR happier then I was in the previous school year, and he took a notice to it automatically. He even told me, "Whenever I see you, you're always smiling." I responded saying that I was happier now because I didn't like him anymore. (Which was a lie) Ever since then, I've caught him staring at me during classes, and have taken a notice to how close he's been trying to get to me. He was even standing right OVER me at one point during an experiment in Science. He claims I stalk him, and continues to talk behind my back to his friends. Also, I was passing notes to a friend in class, and after class, he asked her if we were talking about him. I don't think he'll tell me why he says and do's the things he does... I just need someone's advice on why he's acting like this. Any advice would be appreciated... Thanks.
