AITA for doing a cop photo shoot because of what my ex did?
I (21f) just got out of a 4-year relationship with my HS sweetheart (21m). We were so in love that I changed my college plans to go to the same school as him (at his request). We've been living together in the same apartment for most of our time at school, and planned on staying in it until we graduate next spring.
About three weeks ago he decided he was done with our relationship, and it broke my heart. I still am devastated, and my whole world feels like it's upside down. Even though it hurt, the breakup conversation was amicable.
I cried and asked why. He said he didn't love me anymore, and that he was going to move out when he could get some friends to help him. Then he went and slept on the couch for the rest of the week. I thought he was being classy about things.
Until it was time for him to move out. He said he'd be moving his things out during the day on Friday while I was in class, but when I got home everything was still there. He showed up at about 7 PM (right as all our neighbors were getting ready to go out for the evening), with his buddies and two cop cars that sat in the parking lot right outside our apartment with their lights on the whole time he gathered his stuff. I was mortified. Our relationship was not violent or dramatic or anything and he's got 50lbs and 5 inches on me.
I still don't know why he wanted the police there while he took his stuff out of the apartment, but I spent the week after having to answer questions about it from everyone we know (word traveled fast). The next weekend, my best friend showed up unannounced with a bottle of wine and two Party City cop costumes to try and cheer me up. We took all sorts of goofy pictures of her handcuffing me and both of us trying to look stern.
It was the first time I smiled since the breakup and I decided to post some of the funnier ones. I didn't expect him to see it since he blocked and unfollowed all my socials after the breakup.
I woke up the next morning to texts from him and a bunch of his buddies saying how terrible I am and that I should be ashamed for making fun of him. I'm honestly just trying to move on with my life and heal with humor, but maybe I was petty for posting the pics.
NTA (Not the A**hole)
He's your ex now, he doesn't get to comment on your posts. Even if he did, though, you were just trying to have fun - well done on bouncing back! INFO - Did you ever learn why he brought the cops?
LOL, what a drama queen. You dodged a bullet here, he can go be dramatic somewhere else lol
Lmaoooo so homeboy can dish it out by having a police escort for no discernible reason, but can’t take it when you have a hilariously adorable, cathartic photo shoot. So NTA it ain’t even funny, but the photo shoot is. Good on you, OP.
