I received a phone call today that my D is final.

I laughed. I felt light and happy and my only thought was, "It is finally over."

Ex texted that he will now work on his end (COBRA), and said "I wasn't sure if I should text you." I replied that I was fine and laughing. He said, "You are laughing??".

Yes. I. Am.

I have a date tomorrow night...with a very interesting man. Very.

My, what a few years will do for a girl.

I remember seeing your handle on replies to my posts, and posts that I replied to over the years.
I'm so happy for you! That's great. Congratulations!
I was so relieved when my D was official too. My XH cried on the day. How 'bout that.

I'm so happy for you!!

Do you feel differently? I know your long separation was different from many that we see here (struggling to finish the divorce/fight the fight, whereas your was voluntary to finish school, with an extremely strong separation agreement in place and all the arguments knocked out), so I was curious if it felt as monumentous as some of the "victory" divorces?

cmego posted 7/1/2014 10:32 AM


Yeah, actually I do feel different. It was a long fight with him, even fighting when I filed (he tried to change the PSA one last time), but I was able to not be emotional about the fighting since I'm so detached. Does that make sense? My IC says I treat him like a buzzing fly, annoying...but out of my head as soon as I brush him off.

It is a "free" feeling. I don't know how to explain it. Not a victory, but

And nervous about this date tonight. This man is different. A "real" date at a nice restaurant and drinks afterwards at a wine bar. We shall see.

Have fun on your date tonight

Love it :) I hope the new free feeling bodes well for your dating as well!

Free is lovely. Congrats, honey.

We'll be waiting up for the debrief when you get in from your date. Don't miss curfew.

cmego posted 7/1/2014 21:07 PM

Date went well He asked me out again and I accepted.

I didn't get major butterflies, but more of a secure calmness..which I take as a good sign. I enjoyed his company, I though he was very cute and am looking forward to spending more time with him.
