ex girlfriend just called 2 minutes ago....

As far as getting on with your life and not moping where it can be "reported" to her - yes, act like you're doing great. You can punch a wall and scream and cry in private


However, it's not weak at all to lay down some boundaries of your own, and make sure they're respected. Believe me, NOBODY who's been on the receiving end of being left is honestly thrilled to hear their ex is burning up the town with another, male OR female - and it's not something you have to put up with. If she wants to give herself a boost, she can go brag to her girlfriends, not to you.


I don't believe anyone who has broken up with their gf/bf can HONESTLY think they want to hear about the new guy or girl in their life - the impression you're gonna end up giving is you'll tolerate hearing about this dude to talk with her, not that you don't care about it. Laying down the law so to speak on this will get you some respect, not appear weak. Basically you're telling her "you hurt me when you left me, I'm moving on, and I'm not going to let you hinder me in that by being thoughtless"

thanks again justagirl.... you're helping me alot through this whole fiasco.. I've never taken a break up as hard as this one. Maybe because it was the longest and I lived with her and the fact that she would tell me countless times how much she wanted to marry me and be the mother of my children. It just tougher when you know that you could have done more earlier in the relationship rather than regretting it afterwards. By this I mean not loving her as much as she loved me during the relationship. I did love but never showed it as much as her.

I'm glad to be of help. You most likely took this so hard because of as you said, you 2 were living together, and she mentioned marriage and things often. I'm sure she knew you loved her. Just remember, you cant change the past, use what you know now to learn from and make sure you do things differently next time. But also remember, its not your fault entirely that SHE broke up with YOU.

This advice helped me when i was going through a situation like yours. Women are like monkeys. They don't let go of one branch till they grab on to another. I know it hurts bro, but let her go. You're the same guy you were before you met her. You'll find someone way better. Just give it some time.

Yikes - lol, is there any more complications you can throw in for fun? Just kidding...


Honestly, it depends on your feelings on it, if you're going to feel uncomfortable enough where it's going to kill your day - reschedule. Keep in mind who's the most important person to look out for - you, and go with how it's going to make you feel.

ya go to the dental appt and just be nonchalant about everything. don't show any feelings and treat her like she's just a friend or even an acquaintance. the whole time you're there, just think to yourself what she's done to you, talking about her new boyfriend, etc. but only if you think you can do this. if you can't (cause seeing someone can be tougher then just talking over the phone with them), then don't go, cause it'll set you back more. about that letter you wrote, sit on it for a week or two and then see how you feel about it. re-read it then and i'm sure there're going to be things in it you'll want to change or take out cause you'll be stronger. i just got from the letter that you're spilling your emotions for her and that's something you don't want to do.

Damn, boy, you've got guts! Hey, more power to you, you've also got an invisible cheering section on this board. \


And I agree with caliboy - wait on the letter, hell, write more if they come to mind, if you knew the sheer volume I've written and never sent... lol, sometimes it's just good to write it and get it all down as it comes to you, even if you don't send it in the long run, it lets you take that step back and see how you felt when you wrote those words, and how you feel in comparison. Especially when you don't think you're making progress, it can help to see little differences there, so keep it up, you've definitely got the right attitude going for you!

Hey thanks TheMorrigan... I appreciate your comments as well..

Yeah I see her next wednesday at the dentist.. It's gonna be weird having her assist the dentis while she works on me..Oh well.. I'll keep smiling.. I should seriously think about changing dentists though. I mean it's way at the other end of town.I only went there because of the ex. But maybe I shouldn't because actually the Dentist that my ex girlfriends assists is a woman and she's HOT !! A HOT Dentist !!.. LOL

I'll do my best I guess

Thanks bdub... Yeah I like the pain I guess...

They ex must not be too happy though for paying for her cleanings at work she now has to pay 50%. She used to be on my Dental coverage at work because I work for the Government and we were considered commom-law and everything was covered 100%. Oh well..

Yeah you should see the Dentist she works for..WOW.. She's my age and beautiful.. My ex was younger than me. She's 23 turning 24 in 2 weeks and I'm 27.. Maybe I should try to hook up with the dentist...lol... Yeah right !She's going out with a geeky doctor
