One user felt very strongly about the situation, “You feel he strung you along during your few months of a relationship but now that’s what you’re doing to him. It’s wrong to use people. Be a better person and maintain some self-respect by not using a man for money.”

Other users were more forgiving saying they would do the same, “He wouldn’t leave you alone, if I’m constantly being pestered by an ex I’m going to end up taking advantage of it.”
