45 Women Share Their Horrifying “Psycho Ex” Stories

7. He tried choking my dog to death.

“Ex with major anger issues would take out his rage with daily life on our dog, then me when I intervened, then himself. Once on an out of town trip, I confronted him about his abuse and he literally beat his own face bloody while we were driving home.

The next day, I was leaving to go back to college (3.5 hours away), I tried to sneak myself and our pup out. He caught me, threw and choked the dog until I pulled him off, then he did the same to me. In broad daylight. Outside. While his friends watched and refused to intervene. I took the dog and bolted, while he chased us and pounded dents into my new-ish car for an entire block.

I ended up hiding the dog in my dorm room for about a month until I found a friend willing to take him, but it was worth it. Pupper is now living happily in SC with lots of visits to the beach and a seriously devoted owner.

Five years later, crazy ex still texts asking if he should kill himself because he ‘knows he’ll never be able to stop being the way that he is.’ I never reply.”


8. Masturbated on my sheets because they smelled like me.

“Broke into my house left an engagement ring on my bed and a note saying how he’d masturbated in my sheets because they smelled like me. This was all after I broke up with him.”
