My divorce was a year and a half ago.
I generally keep my work & private lives completely locked down and this was just a testament to that.
I know he felt funny when I told him we (me and Mr. Ex Jelly) aren't together anymore.
I was out having a drink with a girlfriend last week and in walked Mr. Ex-Jelly. He didn't see me. I finished my drink and left. One of my friends told me he posted on his Facebook recently about how he's a point in his life where he wants two girls in his bed, one to talk to the other after he falls asleep. On his public Facebook.
Life is so weird.
On the flip of that, I am experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. The prospect of dating and getting rejected make me feel strange. In my marriage one of the biggest issues with communication and the silent treatment (ex could go days/weeks w/o saying a word to me) so now if I am interested in a guy and we don't talk I automatically feel anxious. How do you know when it's healthy and not healthy to talk? Or rather, how do you know if a guy is cooling off/not interested vs. normal non-talkin times? I feel like a blind person.
Ew...I think you're much better off! Give yourself time, sounds like Mr. Ex Jelly did quite a number on you.
