Honestly if my ex wasn’t so “macho and totally secure in himself” I could see him using suicide as a way to manipulate me to stay with him. And it would have worked too. But he was too proud (more likely cocky) I guess. I had another guy who I wasn’t even dating threaten suicide if I didn’t go out with him. I didn’t and I cut ties with him but I still think about him…hope he wasn’t serious.

he definitely wasn’t serious he was a manipulative jackass
people who threaten suicide aren’t suicidal they’re people who are willing to hurt others by hurting them self out of some masochistic bullshit

i’m glad you cut ties before you got into something with that person. it started ugly and would’ve gotten worse fast
