My Ex-Boyfriend Haunts Me

Posted on January 24, 2009

This happened to me about two weeks ago and it had creeped me out beyond belief.

I was feeling really terrible because me and my boyfriend had a small fight and I fell asleep after burning a few of his pictures. In my dream, I specifically remember me running from something that kept talking in a soft, whisper-like manner. It kept saying “Don’t run, I’ll give you what you gave me…” And no matter what happened, I just kept on running. And at the end of the dream, I fell off of a cliff and just suddenly, my surroundings were of a dark hole. At the very bottom, I saw my boyfriend and his arms open, as if waiting for me to land in them. And that’s when I woke up.

When I woke up, I looked into the mirror and I saw a little black figure hovering over me. As the blur from just waking up disappeared, it seemed as though the figure noticed me staring at it and it kind of just faded away. I rubbed my eyes and looked at the mirror again. Nothing.

The next day me and my boyfriend made up and we were hanging out. After he hugged me and told me goodnight, he left and I walked into my house. In the mirror on the wall, I saw a whitish figure with an almost distinguishable face right next to my ear and once I realized what it was doing, I heard it whisper in my ear. “I’ll come back… He’ll cause you more pain…” and that’s when I screamed and swatted at my ear until I cried. And sure enough, that night my boyfriend had something bothering him and he wouldn’t tell me. That made me mad, too. I couldn’t eat and I hardly fell asleep. It was around four ‘o clock when I fell asleep and that night, it was all the same.

And after that me and my boyfriend made up and we took pictures at the mall. I was about to upload them onto the computer. As I was editing them, I saw that in most of the pictures, the transparent white face was whispering in my ear again. I deleted these pictures because I was so scared, so I don’t have any evidence left.

The next night I fell asleep happy and warm, but the dream was totally different. The ghost person who was haunting me finally caught me before I could fall into the hole again. He then whispered into my ear “You did it to me, I’ll force you to do it to him…” and that’s the part I didn’t understand until now.

I had a boyfriend about four months ago. I broke up with him and that was the day he died of leukemia (blood cancer… I think). It took me two long weeks to find out that it was my ex-boyfriend who was haunting me. Right now, I could still feel the presence of him in the surrounding air, throwing taunts at me about my current boyfriend and how I would break up with him and kill him.

I deeply regret breaking up with my ex-boyfriend because maybe if I didn’t, he would’ve still lived or he would’ve died and rested in peace.

    I believe that ghosts are ghosts because they haven’t finished a job important to them.Maybe his unfinished task was to get back together with you.0.0!!!!! creepy

  2. Helen says:

    I am not an expert. I do believe that if deep inside you have guilt or even regret that the spirit of the passed will not be at peace.
    I lost my Husband and Best friend March 22, 2005. He passed peacefully for him (he was sleeping next to me) but for me I have felt that he deserted me for he was my Rock that I leaned on to keep me anchored in this world. I am afraid that I haven’t let him rest but He knows that I will always love him and no I am no longer angry but just sad.
    I don’t know if this can help anyone else but I think this site has helped me. Thank you for the story.

    I think this is a metal fabrication that people dream up and to them it becomes reality.

  4. lily says:

    i think if you tell him how sorry you are and beg his forgiveness he will go away

  5. elle says:

    I think I have bit of idea on what’s happening to you. I’m not an expert but I wanted to help people like you and I think your ex was so mad on what went down between the two of you. First and the most important of all, pray. Nothing beats that. If strange things happens, you may email me anytime. Thanks

    Hey Jaylene…
    This is just a theory… so don’t take it too heart much…

    Alright, i’m guessing that the spirit is indeed, that of your ex-boyfriend and when he said that “You did it to me, I’ll force you to do it to him…"
    He’s basically implying that you killed him and he is going to force you to kill your current boyfriend. Perhaps he believes that you killed him because when you broke up with him, he probably felt depressed and crestfallen, which consequently stimulated a rush of hormones that made the cancer worse, possibly resulting in his death. (stress and depression have been known to make cancers worse)

    I guess you should just pray and ask him for his forgiveness.

    Take care

  7. Brittannie says:

    One of my best friend just had an almost similar thing happen to her, Everything except the haunting part. She had told him that He was no good for her and she could do so much better and left. That night he killed himself. I haven’t really talked much to her since, but I think I’m gonna see if anything like this is happening to her.

    The only advice I could give you is stay strong, and don’t let him keep you down the rest of your life. I might not know a lot about that kind of situation but I know life’s going to go on anyway. And we just have to keep on going.

  8. amber says:

    sorry but that story sound very weak to me it certainly does not make sense either. you dumped someone on the day they die of cancer? i doubt it

  9. Embry says:

    I feel so sorry for you! I really have no advice to give except that there are things out there. I don’t think he wants to hurt YOU, but that you should keep a close eye on your boyfriend.

  10. hjanelya20 says:

    insecure ghost? maybe you should pray for him… and tell him ur sorry for what happened..

  11. Nicole says:

    I have to say i agree with Embry, he doesn’t want to hurt you, he wants to hurt your boyfriend because he’s angry, jealous of you going out with him, and he wants to get him out the picture.

  12. madison fowler says:

    you cant fear the spirit,this will only make it more powerfull than it allready is!!!!you must ignore it,and if you haft to,shout out that you are not fearfull of it,and pray out loud,pray to God that he please put his soul to rest.and spend more time with your boyfreind,stop fighting,this is only what he want’s.also, stop feeling guilty,go to his grave more often, tell him he is only hurting himself more than he is hurting you.tell him if he realy want’s you,or want’s you to be happy,then he need’s to move on.if this doesnt work,try to contact,PRS,or parnormal sate,wich is a tv show on A&E,a man named Ryan was haunted by thing’s when he was a child.if you watch the show,it will give you an idea of what he does.God be with you,madison.

  13. Rose...The Lost and Forgotten says:

    Do not feel guilty. I have the feeling that this is really not your ex boyfriend. I am not an expert, but i have been studying the paranormal for 4 years now. I believe that this entity, if it can be called that, is a demon. It senses your anguish and guilt about your ex boyfriend, who has passed away, and uses that to torment you. Demons feed off of extreme emotions. All exept pure joy.

    I believe it is a demon because even if you had just broken up with your boyfriend, he would have still loved you. He wouldnt have hated you so much as to come back and haunt you. Plus,as I’ve said, demons feed off of emotions, mostly fear and hate. If you can, by any means, find out the name of the demon, you may be able to force it back into the Demon Realm, or Hell, based on where it is from.If you are Catholic, you could get a priest to come and bless your house. Or, you can burn sage while chanting a prayer.

    Goodbye and Good luck,

  14. angel34 says:

    Yes I know how it feels to lose a loved one..I’ve lost one to suicide, but nothing like that happened to me.He stole money from me.After that I never saw him again.Forteen days after he stole from me, he commited suicide.Also needless to say he was always like that(suicidel).So like everyone is saying pray and have faith.Keep me in contact my friend.

  15. Garth Spandrel says:

    I read a story like this when I was in grade school (early 90′s). There are obvious differences, i.e. digital cameras were not around, but the plot of the story is the same.

  16. hty535472659 says:

    WHY would you dump a guy that was dying of cancer?.
    Could you at least waited until he was dead?.
    this is what proves that either you are lying, or there is peopel out there (i.e; YOU) that have NO HEART.

  17. Angela says:

    he will not try to hurt you at all. if he loves you he will understand that you are happy with your new boyfriend.

  18. deanna says:

    ya that story is bologna and u break up with a boy that has cancer omg that is sad and u shouldnt be talking about that if its not true and u shouldnt post it on a website if is true u disgust me =(

  19. Hi says:

    Im not the kind to judge but what made you do that?I think that wasn’t a nice thing you did….so there was no way for you to work things out with your ex?I would understand if it was other reasons into why you broke up with him,But if you broke up with him for the simple fact he had cancer then you truly need to improve your ways,and ask God to come into your life and ask him for forgiveness,at some point or another we all make mistakes…and its not about what you did in the past but how you learn from it and not do it in the future………The same thing your ex passed away from I survived from for 3 years…

  20. Blue jay says:

    What ticks me off is that everyone blames her for breaking up with her boyfriend. Happens all the time! It isn’t her fault that he happened to die that same night!
    How was she supposed to know he was dying?
    You blame her for breaking up with him and make it sound like she did it while he was in his deathbed, but it probably happened before that…she couldn’t have known.
    That thing bothering the ex?
    Most likely the cancer taking hold, getting ready to kill him…
    You should be ashamed of yourselves, blaming someone for breaking up with someone else!

  21. Reebee says:

    I do not believe that this was your ex-boyfriend . I think it was an evil spirit using your guilt to torment you and destroy the relationship you have now. Satan’s mission in this world is to kill, steal, and destroy. The Bible clearly states that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. Do you honestly think that this man would give up Heaven to torment you about something that does not matter in eternity? Go talk to your pastor. Get the right knowledge and tools to confront this spirit. It needs to be forcefully told that you belong to God and it has to go away and leave you alone. Be at peace. Satan wants to make the world believe that there is no God. What easier way to do this than by making people doubt His exsistance one at a time?
    I hope this helps you. may god be with you.

  22. Laurie says:

    I went out with this guy when I was 16 almost 17 and we were together for 3 months but we always contacted each other off and on for 4 years and eventually I went off to university so we lost contact. On July 18th I was sitting in my apartment that is located right in the city and my whole apartment smelled like the smell of someone cutting wood. My ex was a woodsman and always smelled the exact same as this smell that was in my apartment i even went outside and the smell wasn’t there just in my apartment . The day after this happened I got a message telling me my ex had hung himself on July 18th. I didn;t think much about the smell but a few days have passed and I am beginning to wonder if it was his way of saying goodbye. I missed him over the past few years and had been thinking of contacting him since moving back and I can;t help but think if i had of contacted him i could have helped him. I have been so depressed and saddened over his death i spend most of the past few days just sobbing.
