First of all I am so very sorry that you have had to go through this. And I give you kudos for being strong and knowing that you just don't deserve to be treated like that.
I also agree with the advice you have been given about
not getting the stuff back. Remember one day he can be nice the other mean. So, I would bet that after awhile he is going to bring the stuff over. Once he has stopped being angry and realizes that it is your son's things who did nothing wrong to him.
I too had to do the dating after divorce,and it is hard especially with kids. It took me awhile to introduce my kids to him.
Just because this one did not work out,do not think that you won't find someone else. You will. And because of what you have been through you will know the signs. And hopefully won't fall into the same mess again.
Alot of women and men have fallen into the "if I try they will change" routine. And yes ,it does not work.
You deserve to have someone that you don't need to change. Relationships should not be filled with that much drama. And you should not have to work so hard at it.
Believe me,it took me a very long time to figure that out!
You stay strong,and keep us posted on how you and your son are doing ok?
