sigh... - adventures of a red-headed stepchild in the house of love — LiveJournal
mermaid on the mic
another challenging encounter with the exbf today... I'm really getting frustrated around this. I try and try to be as nice to him as possible, and then I see him and he acts like I killed his dog.

not that he's always that way, he's been better mostly, but kinda tends to go back and forth.

am I being unreasonable?

I know it takes time to get over being disappointed over a breakup, I've been there myself. but he's got to realize, on some level at least, it really wasn't good for quite some time - for me, or (despite it providing him with a nice place to live, which he nonetheless complained about) for him either.

I just don't know what to do about it. so I left. disengaging from him and the situation was all i could think of to do.

he says he "misses us." but what he misses was living in my apartment, eating for free, and the *good* times. he needs to remember that it wasn't just good times, not by a long shot. and he also needs to realize his contributions to making it fall apart!

and it's not like he's all alone. he has *three* girlfriends!

oh well. I guess all I can do is be patient, and go on trying to be as nice as possible, and just disengage when it isn't productive.

Yes, I am trying to make it possible for us to just be friends. Sometimes it seems like it's going to work, and other times he gets oddly oversensitive about it. I just hope he can move on soon!

Thanks for the comment, and can't wait to see you in less than a month!!! : D

I think you're taking the aware approach -- that's wonderful. I think you're a sane and balanced woman, from what I've seen of you during the time I've known you.

Still kinda sucks though, doesn't it? The break-up, I mean. Not you're being sane and balanced ;-). I empathize with your pain sweetie and hope that the time it takes to dull is short.

Sometimes people have selective memories after breakups.
It sounds like you're handling it well. Hope it gets better soon.

Thanks, doll. I appreciate it! Hopefully it will improve with time, like you said.

Hope the new year is good to you!

I luff you, M! That really sucks, the way he's acting. Like CinnGrrrl said, people DO sometimes have way selective memories after a breakup. And as sweet as he could be, memory wasn't always his best trait.
