TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

I have been dating my GF for 3 years. I feel like I am not appreciated in the slightest bit - I get no “thank you”, I get no acknowledgement of anything I do for us. I’m not asking for her to bow down on like taking the trash out - but I mean some recognition every now and then would mean a lot to me. How do I bring this up?

So I am in a city where my ex lives (nothing major, just a few dates at some point). He tends to watch and ‘react’ to most of my stories on Instagram.

He hasn’t read it or responded, but clearly watched every single story. Isn’t that sort of rude? I don’t know if I have done something to annoy him but I don’t know how!

He told me he knew I was the one when we moved in together (4 years in) and bought my engagement ring a year ago right before I had our son but still hasn’t given it to me yet.
