It's been forever since I started a thread! Good times, good times.

Anyway!

I recently ran into two exes (on different days) and had very different emotional reactions. The first encounter was at my doctor's office. I was sitting across the office near a large potted plant. When I spotted him I slouched down and over into the plant to hide. It was a brilliant move; he didn't see me. I should have been a spy.

The second ex I ran into was a different story. It hurt to see him, and it took my breath away just a little bit. We didn't end on the best of terms, and we haven't spoken in years. This encounter was brief. Honestly, the word encounter seems too generous a term. In seeing him I realized I didn't miss him romantically, I missed him as a friend. With the exception of one ex who goes to church with me, I don't speak to anyone I've dated. It's always a clean break. But in this case, I would have made an exception for ex number 2. Too bad he won't make an exception for me.

So tell me how you handle your ex partners! I want all the details. :)

I usually make certain I never see an ex again. My problem is with the one I married, we have kids together, and makes it hard to avoid her.

Hey darling. Turn that frown upside down.
Don’t call me “darling”. It means “little dear one”. I’m not your “little dear one”. If anything, I am your big pain in the gluteus maximus.

A whole lot of posts disappeared from this thread. :unsure:
Do you have me on ignore? Most of them are probably mine. I should think half the members on the site have me on ignore.

I know when someone's posts aren't showing because I have them on ignore.. :sneaky: It's not like I just joined this site yesterday lol. :p Even my own post is missing...and it was a long one. I don't usually write long ones..

They were probably lost when the website changed to the new format.

And until now I thought all the posts had survived... :( I really want my blog back. :(:(:( I didn't realize that the blogs would disappear... I've been through a couple major upgrades before on this site and everything survived through those... :( I had some poems on there that I wrote when I was going through tough times when my dad was very ill.. :(

This is why I am a Luddite. I don’t trust the web or the cloud. I would say the next time you write poetry, use pen and paper.

I don't trust those either. I didn't think about saving my blog until I noticed it was missing after the upgrade.. :(

Most of the information lost was input during the four or five days that RoboOp was transferring data from the old platform to the current one.

Blogs are aaaaalllllllll the way at the bottom of the main page.

I know I posted in this thread. I guess my reply got lost in transition lol.

For the 1st bf, I don’t think I have to worry about running into him. He lives in a different state. I don’t see myself ever visiting his state, but who knows if he will ever be in Texas.

Right after we broke up, he would contact me from time to time. I had a friend delete him from my FB because every time I tried, I felt like I was being unfair although I couldn’t handle him still commenting on my stuff lol. After deleting him, he emailed me a few times. I was always cordial but never sought a convo with him. He eventually stopped. Lol.
