DD - I can't add much more other than to say - yes - mind games and manipulation is sadly all par for the course. He doesn't like the fact that you were the one to move on.....
He will expect you to have no life, or be doing anything that is important, and therefore you have to jump when he says so. I capitulated all the time so that my girls wouldn't be adversely affected, but you become very unhappy doing that, and then angry.
Keep strong and don't be a doormat - easier said than done, but then the ground rules are laid out.
Rant away whenever you need to - so many of us know what it's like.
Good luck and lots of love xxx
