I have been meaning to write about this for sometime now. I have been told that it is not possible to be friends with an ex and can be seen as wrong, but I just don't think so. Ok, maybe a little.
I am friends with A LOT of my ex boyfriends. Granted, I dated half of the population of Colorado at some point in my 20's and uhemm early 30's, so I am bound to have gotten some friends out of it. But really, I still talk to at least 20 of my ex's or one of their family members or friends.
As I look through my phones contact list, almost everyone is an ex or connected to one somehow.
I even have a friend that married an ex of mine and a friend that has been dating an ex for 8 years plus now.
I was/am friends with 1 particular ex's current wife, ex wife and the girl he cheated on me with. Now, that is weird, I must admit.
I hang out with an ex of mine's family. We actually tell my daughter that they are her "extra" grandparents.
Every time my husband asks who so and so is, I have to say "oh, I dated him" or "that is a guy I dated's sister"
So what the hell is wrong with me? I figure, that I am either so great and people love me so much that they hang around, or, I don't build strong enough connections in my relationships that what they do afterwards doesn't affect me.
I choose to believe the first! :)
