  • Not since I was 20.
  • No. (simply didn't care)
  • umm no never, i dont drive.
  • When I was younger and my blood pressure would be sky high as I approached his house ....thank God those days are gone gone gone!
  • no to me ex means over out of my life.
  • an ex is an ex... over, done, case closed... they could have ten cars in their driveway and i would not care.
  • Sadly...yes and when I did notice another person's car, I tried my hardest to just forget. I couldn't erase most of it until another person came into my life. Found out that it was her mom's car, lmao.
  • Yes...but he wasn't my ex until after I saw the car! lol. Turns out my boyfriend lied to me and said he was going to go hunting early in the morning so he told me not to come over that night after I got off work. My roommate (who was also my co-worker) went home from work "sick" but when I got home she wasn't there. So I figured something was fishy. I drove by his place and saw her car there. Needless to say I broke up with him, and kicked her out and threw all her stuff on the front lawn (she had only been staying at my house a month or so...just clothes). I have never spoken to either of them again!
  • Oh yeah. It was done to me and I was guilty and I did it to a guy also. So karma does pay.
  • No, can't say that I've ever done that. But, I did have to drive a friend of mine to his ex's house to do exactly that. Then he went in there while I waited in the car for like 20 minutes...and uh, he came out crying. He'd kill me if he knew I told you that, so let's keep that between us:)
  • Yes...
  • Not even once that I can remember. But then again I have only been in a few serious relationships.
  • Yes, I was still in love but when you do it you feel worse, especially when driving to work in the morning and the guys car was still there...
  • No. I think that's a bit too stalker-ish (though it reminds me of "Found Out About You" by The Gin Blossoms) and most of my ex-boyfriends aren't living on their own. If they are, I know their relationship status already. I honestly wouldn't care otherwise.
  • I agree with Riff Raff they are called an ex for a reason. If any of you doing the late night drive by live in the USA you might want to check your local laws cause doing that could be construed as staking and can put you in a big heap of legal troubles.

  • No, I don't believe I'm that masochistic.
  • Nope. When I'm done, that's it.
  • Yes, but it was just to see if what I suspected was true. Guess what there was a white truck in his gagrage. He didn't own a white truck, but she did. The next day I filled divorce papers.
  • Haha...no. I wouldn't even want to know. I've gotten lost in ex's neighborhoods before, and I've freaked out because I didn't want someone to see me around there, thinking I was either stalking the person or looking for evidence of other girls.
  • I did, and sometimes I get the urge to drive by but I resist.
  • Fith amendment, Blush :D
  • No I am a firm believer that when a relationship is over it is over.
  • NO, not of an ex, just by the house of a friend I was worried about, it took her two years to see why I was wrried in the first place.
  • yes. he is my neighbor n i hate that he lives right by me so i have no choice but to look. it sux! and im jealous as hell so its even worse
  • Yes and I was afraid that he or they would see me! But I did it anyway of course and mainly because I had been drinking or I probably would not have had the guts. lol
  • I'm sad to say yes I have.
  • well my exes home is on the way home from mine...so normally it wasn't on purpose...but when he got his new gf...i did drive by on purpose once or twice...but then i got over it.
  • Recently yes haha... I WAS in the neighborhood at another friend's house, but I still looked. He told me he needed time to be himself. I suspect he just wanted to run back to his ex. Either way it really doesn't matter anymore, but I'm one of those people that likes to know if I'm being lied to... old habit.
  • yes. I call it "007" its the first thing that pops in our heads example, She says "we need time apart" alright now your thinking its somebody else. so here you are, out at 10pm driving someone else's car and on your way over there. your thinking about guys she works with that she's told you about now thinking that one of them are going to be there and now you pull up and you see that her lights are on and only her car is there and you think "cool" and you go back home to see that she called. so you call her back thinking of what to tell her for being gone and she tells you that she misses you and she wants to know if you want to spend the night and you say yes and you tell her, I'm on my way. "sometimes" it s not over, just give her room to breathe
  • No, because I was lucky not to ever break up and still love, but if it happened that I was, I am the kind of person who would definetly do so, and not only once. I know it's wrong, but I can't resist. I'm too paranoid about that stuff...
  • No ...why would I do that? If someone was there my heart would hurt. It is over so why do those things.
  • Yes when you suspect someone is cheating you get so caught up in trying to catch them you don't care or when someone doesn't talk to you for two whole days, you pretty much have your suspicions.
  • No! When it's over, it's over !
  • Yes. I think this is pretty common for younger people when they are dealing with their first breakups. Though it's common, it's certainly not healthy. If you see a car, then you become obsessed with it - whose was it? What is he/she doing? I have, in the past, even gone so far as to knock on the door - only to find to my dismay it was the worst case scenario. He had a girl, and I interrupted their session, only a few days after we broke up! If you don't find a car, there is no closure. Maybe you just didn't catch it at the right time. Now you're obsessed with driving by every chance you get because until you SEE a car, you're left wondering. The best advice is to let it go. You will do much better to focus your efforts on other things. Go out with your friends. Read a good book. Go for a jog. Do things to better yourself. Don't spend your time wondering what your ex is doing, because no matter the case, you really don't want to know. Live your own life.
  • Nope. I've always found better things to do with my time!
  • No. An ex is just that. If I am no longer with someone, I have no interest in what (or who) they're doing. If they are an ex, there is usually a good reason.
  • Nope, Im way too confident for that. No matter who hes seeing, im still better (even in my little world) lol
  • I'll plead the 5th on this one! LOL
  • Sadly, yes. Not so much looking for another car, just checking if he is home or out at a bar somwhere with someone else. I know its really sad!
  • I used to all the time. She couldn't really take care of herself and didn't hang out with the most trustworthy people. I found myself driving by often just to check and make sure she was still alive and well. Sometimes I'd end up in front of her house, completely unaware of the drive there.
  • Nah, by the time he is an ex, I really do not care anymore. I just feel sorry for the old schmuck who is over there with him. She'll learn soon enough, just like I did.
  • Once, when I was out with a friend. But it wasn't my idea, and she was driving. I was absolutely horrified, and crouched down in her passenger's seat just in case. She is such a drama queen, lol.
  • Heck yea! How else was I supposed to find out my ex was seeing someone else- He kept saying no even though I senced something. I was right- oh well, lock me up!!!
  • no. never cared much.
  • no, i would just be blatantly obvious about my obsession... besides we had all the same friends. first loves are killers if you aren't corresponded.
  • I debated about doing it once, but we were still going out at the time...one of my friend's talked me into it. But another friend quickly talked me out of it because i didn't want to be labelled "a stalker", even to myself. I decided, if I was having my suspicions over the relationship, then he probably was cheating...I basically forced him to break up with me a week after.
  • unfortunately yes-but more so to check if he was home rather than if someone else was there.
  • Only if I had a grenade to throw into her house.
  • Hell no, if the person is going to cheat, they are going to cheat. I haven't or will not play dick tracy.
  • Ugh. No, thank God. I've never stayed in relationships that started having trust issues. (And it worked out for the better for me... I landed a great husband!) I DID have a friend who tried to get me to do it for her. I told her at 36 years old, she was old enough to do her own dirty work. That same man is the reason we aren't friends today.
  • Yup. Can't help myself.
  • yes, bitch fucked me up bad. i sought professional help and now I'm fine
  • Oh yes, I couldn't help it. Darn curiosity.
  • HONESTLY I HAVE TO SAY YES SIMPLY BECAUSE MY EX WAS BEGGING TO GET BACK WITH ME AND I ALREADY DIDNT TRUST HIM SO I HAD TO KEEP AN EYE ON HIM FOR A WHILE BEFORE I WAS READY TO TRUST HIM AGAIN.
  • Oh goodness. I thought I was the only one in the world that does this. Ha... yeah I have just because I'm peranoid.
  • No way! In the first place I don't want to know. Also, it's none of my business to know and with my luck he would be outside and see me drive by. Then his already inflated ego would be lifted and I would feel like an idiot. No thanks! Since we broke up so recently I am not thrilled when I think about him moving on with another girl but the thought doesn't devistate me either. I know he would most likely have problems with any girl he dates now because he is still not over his ex before me. What can you do? Everything happens for a reason.
  • i did it to my friend to see if her stupid ass boyfriend was there. i dont think i would do it to my ex.
  • can't lie... im guilty.
  • EVER? Yep - Way back in (or just after) college. I don't know why... It just caused me more pain if there WAS one there... Seems dumb, looking back on it. :-/
  • Only if I suspected someone else was on the scene b4 I got dumped. Then it was just to confirm my own gut instinct & nothing more.
  • I think thats sick. If you dont trust her, leave her.
  • No, never when it is over it is over..do not need to get over any more pain..:)
  • can't say I ever have.
  • Nope, for one thing we live too far from each other, and for another thing...........I don't give a hoot!
  • no, im not a loser
  • YES and we broke up the next day
  • No, they r an ex for a reason!
  • I used to drive by my old boyfriends house to see if there were any "unusual" cars there....I suspected he was cheating on me. He always had friends over, so lots of cars were always there... In the end, he was indeed cheating on me! Go figure! It was a mess!
  • no i havent ,but when u break up from a relationship it could be one of those most trying and hurtfull things you have to go through in your life fist comes why me, wot have i done, second thing is are they with some one else and you get the mixed emotions then hate a relationship break up is hard.
  • Are you kidding? Hell no!! That's akin to a mental torture. Once I'm done in a relationship that means for good.
  • I never did....I hoped he would find someone and be happy....I knew I wasn't the one....and he wasn't the one for me....
  • No i would never do that.
  • Yes, then realized that it just hurt mw more.
  • + no because once they are my ex what they are or are not doing is no longer my concern.
  • When I was younger I did a few times. But those days are long over! I really don't care anymore.
