Although I hate and love my ex at the same time, and I still get awfully cut up over the bugger - it's not all bad. His friends love me. And I look upon this little fact with a solid smirk on my face. This little situation is a helluva lot better than if his mates hated me. They really are, unlike him, fantastic guys. It's strange really. They treat women well, have the ability to actually have a long-term relationship and are ambitious. My ex is none of those.

Look I'm not going to lie: one of his mates is my infamous stalker. But still, it's pretty funny in a twisted and warped kind of way.

Anyway, on Friday evening, after work, a whole bunch of us met at the bowling club for some cheap drinkie-poos. Nick, one of ex's best mates joined us. We had a nice chat about the ex - nice enough not to hurt, and profound enough not to be just smalltalk - and he partied the night away with us. Us being me and my current boyfriend Steve. What a classic situation?! We all only got home at 4:00am. (As a result, I've had a roaring hangover ALL weekend....)

Then I get an e-mail first thing this morning from Nick saying "thanks for such an awesome night!" You always really wonder what the ex is thinking though. It can be one of two things:
1) Confusion. Why is my ex so pally with my best mates? She obviously isn't over me.
2) Confusion. Why is my ex so pally with my best mates? She must be sooooooo cool. Why didn't I see it in the first place. *jealousy.*

I'm thinking it's # 1.

Glad to hear that you had a great night out. Even if your ex is thinking along the lines of #1 it is probably only because he can't face up to the reality of #2.

By the way, how are things with the stalker?

Aw thanks Steph. There could also be another # 3: Confusion. Is she taking my friends away from me?
Answer to # 3: Alimony, buddy, live with it.

And as far as stalker is concerned, I've put all my cards on the table and have told him that if he doesn't behave and get a grip, we cannot be friends. So he has seemingly got a grip. I think being away in Zanzi with my boyfriend for a while was good too. So he's backed off slightly, which is great. I hope it lasts!

Good morning Laurian,

I see you're well and you had some fun this weekend. Glad to see stalker boy backing off.

By the way: #4 Confusion. Is she flirting with him, damn she's hot I miss her so...boohoohoo.

Answer to #4 WOEHAHAHAHA! You little man I was toying with you, I own you!

Peas on Toast said...

Ha ha you reckon, mrarty? Honestly, I don't think he actually cares or knows for that matter.

But that's a good comeback: "I own you."

It's totally wrong, but perhaps I'll try it. :)

Two | Face said...

If it goes wrong just email me and I'll give you my address so you can tell little ex bf that it was my fault and he should come talk to me. Or anybody for that matter.


Peas on Toast said...

he he. I will, um, bear you in mind! :)

It's SO number 2.

Nettie said...

I wanted to be all clever and think of a number 5. But I have to go with number two.

#5. Confusion. Why is my ex so pally with my best friends? Aha! I see her diabolical scheme of world domination. First it's my friends, then their friends, then their their friends, and so on. Soon only us self-centered guys, who don't treat women well, will be left to fight off the drones of kind, gentle folk who will rule the world under her command. NOooooooo.

Answer to #5. ... Er... yah sure.

Peas on Toast said...

Robin - thanks mate. I suppose I shouldn't even care, but I do, and that's the crux of my probelm here.

Hettie - # 5: Confusion. He thinks I've been possessed by aliens?

Wonderwall - world domination huh? Perhaps I'm the Illuminati. And he thinks I'm the seat of the New World Order. Interesting concept there...
