Things I Know

When a relationship is long in the past and you've moved on with another person, you can't believe you ever wanted to spend the rest of your life with your ex. It seems so obvious that he was wrong, and all the things you ignored when you were together seem so glaring and it's hard to believe you would ever have put up with that.

But when you're in a relationship, you want it to be the one. You want to be right this time.

Very true.

I have an ex that I was with for 3 years on and off. I knew we weren't right for each other, but we sure did love each other, and I wished fervently that love was enough, even though I knew it wasn't in that case. That's the reason the relationship went on for so long. We broke up about 4 years ago and I moved away, but we've stayed in touch sporadically via email and Facebook.

A few months ago I was back in his part of the country for a work conference so we met up for drinks, just to catch up. I could not understand what I ever saw in him. He hadn't changed much, so it wasn't as though he was acting differently and that's what put me off!

Funny how we see things differently when we take the rose-coloured glasses off.

I know, it's crazy right? So, how do we ever end up with someone? I look back on one of my exes more than all the others and just don't know what I was thinking. Maybe you stop being attracted to them somehow? Once you're attracted to someone else?

True, V.... Hindsight is 20/20.

But this post reads like you ended it abruptly. I feel like you'll come back to it at some point in the future and write more.

If that makes sense.

I'm sure I'll come back and be able to write more. I know exactly what you mean. You make sense.

Amazing, I know! ;)
