So I went back to my exes to figure out what to do. What if he was bluffing? I couldnt leave him. So then Steve, a friend...suggested we go to an after hours bar. He figured since Arty wasnt at the bus station he must have met someone and was at another bar. Never found him...but my night finally improved and I started enjoying myself.
Then on my way home I found his house keys in my car. He forgot them....I didnt take them. He left on his own, I didnt leave him. But suddenly his friend Justin is calling me telling me if I dont unlock the house so Arty can move out that they will call the police. Sorry I am 2 hours away...so they illegally get a locksmith to open my apartment. Arty isnt on the lease, and doesnt have a KY license so I cant begin to understand why they'd open my doors!!!
Long story short, he was moving. I didnt fight it. I dont feel it is in my interest anymore to continue something that is obivously not productive. He thinks I am some evil raged person...but honestly, I am just a guy who gets attached and doesnt want you showing me who your attention is really on.
Ultimately, I was a jealous asshole. And I on purpose tried to hurt Arty with my words. I succeeded. But didnt win anything form it. He continued to show me that he would make it a point to show that he didnt need me around. And because of that he has lost someone that cared about him to an extreme amount.
Good bye Arty. To each of us...never settle for what you dont want.
