How can I get my ex to stop calling? and, Is a 14 year age difference too much to handle?

Ask Miss Wild

Q: My ex keeps calling and emailing me. It’s over and he just doesn’t get it. What can I do?

A: If he’s trying to contact you for closure, help him get it. Take the time to clearly tell him where the two of you stand and why. If you’ve already done that, and you feel his attempts to reach you are out of desperation, just ignore the bug until he goes away. Don’t respond to his emails and do NOT take his calls.


Q: I met a guy on the Internet and we liked each other right from the start. He is 14 years younger than me and that difference is making me hesitant. Should I bother?

A: Yes, 14 years is a large age gap. But if that’s the only downside to this young man, you’re way ahead of the game. Keep in mind that while things may seem peachy right now, that big gap might seem to widen with time. You may constantly be in different stages of your life, wanting different things.
