What to do with my boyfriend’s stuff after a break up? My boyfriend dumped me and I don’t know how to get his stuff back to him. He doesn’t want to see me but his stuff brings back painful memories.
Here are things you can do to get your ex boyfriend’s stuff back to him without causing yourself additional grief:
1. Call up a mutual friend with whom you and your ex boyfriend are both on good terms. It’s important that your mutual friend be impartial and does not take sides.
2. Ask your mutual friend to arrange a time when your boyfriend’s stuff will be all packed and is ready for a pick up. At the agreed upon time leave your ex boyfriend’s stuff outside your apartment or on the porch if you have a house.
3. If you are concerned about personal safety, call a non-emergency number for the local police department, explain the situation, tell them you need a stand by officer to supervise the scene while your ex boyfriend is picking up his stuff. This will prevent unnecessary arguments and help the move go smooth and fast. When you call the police department, make sure you follow two things:
- Call the non-emergency number to speak with a dispatch (do not call 911)
- Give the police at least an hour notice. Police officers are busy people; they have better things to do then to do stand by for you. When you call them let them know what time your ex boyfriend is expected to come over and give them enough time to find and dispatch an officer.
Remember, a police officer is not a furniture mover; he is not going to help moving stuff, or loading stuff in the truck.
If you feel that you want to take to your ex boyfriend because you still have feelings for him, don’t. Not at this time. Instead check out this page How Do I Get Him Back? that will tell you exactly step by step how to get your ex boyfriend back.
