Conversations with an ex…

Wisegirl-1Isn’t it so funny when you reconnect with an ex? You know somehow, one way or the other, one of them just sneak right back in.. Most of the time, there’s a damn reason why an ex is an ex.. but that’s not to say that others haven’t had a great come back with their exes.. who am I to judge?!

But for me, of all the days and moments that an ex will get in touch, I surely wasn’t suspecting that this one will reach out on Valentine’s day of all days! Now as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t going around with my heart in my hand last week Friday, but I surely wasn’t expecting this ex of ages to reach out me – on Valentine’s day?! Common! But he did, and there’s nothing a girl can do about it but to smile and let this one’s head roll again. And so the conversation went like this:

Ex: Happy Valentine’s Day. hope you enjoyed it!

You think? I thought to myself.

Me: Hey thank you! I’m not really a huge supporter of Val’s day and all… call me a cynic!

Ex: Why be a cynic?

I wasn’t really sure whether it was worth the effort to respond back as I just simply didn’t see the point! And here’s why – he got together with a friend after I left for uni (now that was a long time ago!); had 2 kids by her (never married her as such); he now lives in a far away country, his life probably turned out so so, and now he feels like playing! Well… So what do you think I should have said? But alas, a girl should be nothing less than classy and fabulous, so for this one, I smile at the text and say nothing thereafter. I’m open to happy relationships this year but surely, I think I could do better than this?

About the author was created to test out a new phenomenon!! We hear of countless stories where women (and many women around the world) go on a date, maybe once or twice…. get to know the guy and then as soon as she makes up her mind that this is the guy that she would like to have in her life… the guy suddenly turns cold towards her!!! Sounds familiar? What happened? How did this nice guy who was pursuing you countlessly suddenly turned cold the moment you started to show an interest in him? Why did he change his attitude? Why did he stopped calling, stopped texting, cancelled the date (with an excuse— I’m sick! and never called back)
