If at all possible, I'd look for another apartment that's nowhere near any ex.

That's a lot of stress on Nick that coould effect your relationship.

I offered to do that and Nick said no. Initially I chose the apartment because I could survive on my own with it because it wasn't too expensive, should I have to wait more than a couple of months for Nick to join me. Plus I just signed the lease today... :(

Do you think I can call her tomorrow and ask her to cancel the lease for that reason? I gave her the deposit and first months rent a month ago...

I would think that if you just signed the lease that you would have a certain amount of time to change your mind. If it's like signing a contract here in the states, you have something like 3 or 5 days to void the contract. Read the fine print of the lease and see if there is anything in there or check with an attorney. But UB's right, you need to find another apartment.

Send a message via AIM to suziquzie
Is there a history of harassment? Is the ex that type? If he is already upset it's not going to get better.
Even if the ex doesn't notice you, which if he is past it he shouldn't, guys don't like exes.... just as girls dont... ok I dont anyway!!

OK, I am going to tell Nick when he gets home from the gym...I'll tell him that I will find another apartment that I can survive in alone until he joins me.. I am not fully comfortable either living there. I specifically went there to sign the lease so I didn't really have time to think it through....

No history of harassment... but I wouldn't like it if I were him either.

It is so hard to find a nice affordable apartment close to work. I work downtown so all the places close to it are slummy.
