Our expert says:
An Ex really ought to be Ex, and yet it sounds as though you are still too involved in his current relationship and problems. That's not ex enough.
When he feels unhappy, he should call Lifeline, and should see a personal counsellor to work on his problems, rather than expecting you to provide free therapy. And if he claims to be suicidal ( it could also be that he is rather, being manipulative ) all the more reason for him to see a professional counsellor. It's not at all fair for him to dump his problems on you.
Why does he do it ? Because you allow him to do so, and it's free.
