This was me
We broke up and he's stopped paying. Do I have any recourse?

I loaned my (now ex) boyfriend money. He's stopped making payments and whenever I try to ask him to set up a payment plan, he comes up with an excuse as to why he has no money. Do I have any recourse? I'm financially perfectly fine without the money, but I know he makes enough to at least make payments and has been bragging on Facebook about new purchases he's made. He has a full time job in addition to his side business and lives with his parents rent-free. He owes around $10k and I am just asking him to pay $250 a month. Is it worth it to try to get a lawyer or do I just need to forget about the money and move on?
