Me: BS(45)Him: EX, aka "The Dink"(52). D-Day#1 12/22/11. D-Day#2 5/23/13. Divorced 1/10/14.
Could've knocked my ass over a little while ago... heard from Jay... He remembered my divorce hearing was scheduled today and was checking to see how it went.
He messaged me. Apologized for being a dink and going radio dark on me. I considered not answering for a moment and then decided to take the high road and at least hear what he had to say about WTH happened.
So he filled me in, and my gut was right. He's been getting his kids settled, but yes, he and Ex are talking off and on about getting back together. As he put it 'there's been so much shit that's gone on there that I'm not about to just go right back'. And I told him, as his friend, that yeah he needs to consider his kids, but also that he needs to do what is best and healthiest for him, both short term AND long term. Then I said that while he and I will always be friends, regarding any sort of anything other than friends between us? That ship has sailed. True, he didn't ask me for a second chance on that front. And I didn't offer one, and he now knows that I won't ever offer one.
I have my friend back. I'm good with that.
Engaged 11/5/15 to the man I'd thought I would never find.
Throw me to the wolves and I'll return leading the pack.
