I don't have a ton of ex's. You can say that either as a good thing or a bad thing. One thing that I've noticed since being in Milwaukee as a completely single girl is that you run into people you date a lot. I haven't dated anyone too seriously since being here but the ones I have I see all the time.
The most recent break is still somewhat painful. I had kept in contact and remained friendly. We would continue to talk and hang out occasionally. I did still have a little feeling for that person. He would say things to me that I actually believed to be true. Come to find out he was "dating" or having a summer fling with someone the entire time. Whom may I add...is not even 1/4 the woman I am. Yeah I said it!!!
My friend recently broke up with her boyfriend. Even though she knew he was no good, she was still bummed. Although he was bad news...he still had good qualities that she liked. Kind of like my guy. Even though he played me, and was not a good person to me in the end, there were things about him I appreciated and missed.
It got me thinking...When do you stop caring? How much time needs to pass before you can run into that person and say..."Yeah, I feel nothing!" What needs to happen when you can see them with someone else and it won't bother you even just a bit? How much time passes til you can be in a bar or restaurant with your new boyfriend and not have to leave because they're there?
I hate to admit this but I know I've avoided places hoping I won't run into a certain group of people. It sucks!! I don't think I should stop doing what I like to do because I may see a certain person with their latest flavour of the week!
Even though I hate winter maybe it'll be good because then, the person I'm scared of running into will decide to hibernate at home and drink scotch on his couch with a paper towel in his right hand.
