You were pissed. Don't lie. AND, you were rude about it.

No, I'll never be good with birthdays, but I don't care if people remember mine, so I think that cancels out the situation.

Did you have fun???

No he's not being rude, well maybe he is, but like Chosen said, why are you still trying to be friends with him, you're fucking his friend, you can't have everything. And your reasoning for being friends with him (he has helped you a few times) isn't a very good reason, it just sounds selfish.

I dig you Gigi, but you're wrong on this one.

Chad said...

It didn't sound rude. It sounded more detatched. ...Like it was supposed to sound.

Gigi... Love you. But you're wrong about it. (siding with bufflo.) Accept your defeat like a good girl. Get off the cock that you replaced for another.

Honey, haven't checked your posts for a couple of days and lo and behold! Why are you so bothered about this ex of yours? You sound like you still haven't got over him. Surely you don't want to become a stalker-ex?

Gigi said...

Hey all,

This is so funny. I am so over him! I didn't even like him when we were dating. He's actually the reason I fled Chicago for San Diego ... I had to get away somehow!

Now we are just good friends and he saved my ass big time a few times. A good guy, just not someone I'm interested in dating.

D is friend with his brother and plans to tell him our situation soon. Needless to say, my ex and I probably won't be friends for too much longer. I'm trying to be cool while I still can.

Paulina: Why have you been ditching my blog lately? Shame on you.

bufflo said...

Wow! The ex doesn't know? Then there's even less reason to keep in touch with him. The more contact you have with him before you tell him, the more pain and unanswered questions the truth will inflict. I assume you're trying to break the fall for him, which is a noble idea, but it's not going to work.

I'm not judging you -- after all, my mother left my dying father to marry a younger man, and I was okay with that, considering the circumstances -- but there is always sacrifice, and you have to accept yours, which is no contact with him, for his sake, and the possibility that he'll hate you.

Girl, I know EXACTLY what you're dealing with. My husband and I got together amidst a storm of controversy (term I borrowed from the nighttime news). I had been best friends with a guy named Daniel for about 3 years. We ended up getting together as a couple for about 3 months, then I broke it off because I knew we weren't going to work out like that. We had been broken up for about 6 months and I started dating my now-husband, who was a friend of both of ours. I haven't spoken to the ex for more than 2 years. There's just too much water under the bridge. I don't think you had any malicious intent or that you're not over this guy or anything. I DO think you may have a little bit of a guilty conscience (though it's unwarranted) and are attempting to circumvent that by being nice. Trust me when I say, when he finds out about you and D, he will definitely suspect ulterior motives and will be even more pissed off than he would have been originally.
