This is how they work. They want to make sure that you don't forget about them and ensure that they will be on your mind continuously. It's a way of torment, very cruel. Good for you for taking the smart road.On a serious note. I have been anxious since the rat send a message after six months no contact. That triggered anxiety and Started to stalk him for a few days. He is on the same fishing mode, he has potential victims from all countries and ages... ofcourse he is a rat. Have seen some of his new friends are clearly rats too. I decided to stop that and remain 0 contact by not only not answering if he tried to reach out but also not falling into temptation to see if karma got him yet or not.
