The Ex Factor

Why do they always come crawling out of the woodwork after you have finally got your life back on track and no longer have any interest in them.

Re: The Ex Factor

Simples... It's the empty shop syndrome

Ever notice that as soon as one single person enters a small shop, it attracts other people ? The shop can be empty for hours and then suddenly fill up in seconds (noticed this as a salesgirl when I was a student)

It's the same with EXs.. as long as you're longing or remembering the past, he won't feel the need to get in touch with you because he "knows" that you are his. But.. if you rebuilt your life and no longer cared, then he'll want to know what the fuss is about (attracted to the busy little shop), and just "why" you're no longer interested.

Time to say: too late, smile and walk away

Re: The Ex Factor

There's nothing like watching a preschool full of little boys to understand adult male behavior....they always want what they can't get. The more I watch little boys, the more I completely get their adult forms. Terrifying, really.

Well if we're generalising, it's not just men. A female friend once told me that she found wedding rings (on men) a turn on for precisely the reason you described. I didn't know whether I should take mine off or leave it on. If I left it on, would it be interpreted as a "come on"? But if I took it off... might that not be?

Re: The Ex Factor

Considering that all love relationships are temporary (even those that last 75 years), regardless of the reason and even with all the love a heart can hold, why be bitter ?
What would be the use ?
Just a waste of time and soul

Tis better to rejoice for whatever was, and let go, because it never ever was really yours anyway, it was just borrowed. It was shared companionship along the way.
