Sweet Guy or Crazy Person?

I am currently dating an ex, and we've been back together for about a month now. Everything is going really well, except for the fact that I'm starting to get a little freaked out about his revelation that he thinks I'm his soul mate and that he never got over me from the last time around. Does this guy sound sweet and sincere or potentially unbalanced? [more inside]

The only thing harder than breaking up

Working with an ex. We just got out of each other's space. Now our only point of interaction is work. It is awkward and uncomfortable, not just because of the obvious but also because it seems he's going out of his way to be unpleasant. The job is great, the pay is amazing, and the company is awesome. I've been there for a year. He's been there for a year and three months. Quitting is not an option for either of us. [more inside]

How do I approach the prickly subject of money owed to me with someone who doesn't want to have anything to do with me?

Is he being an irrational dick, or will continuing to hang out with this girl only result in me getting a taste of my own dick medicine? [more inside]
