       Just sort of talking to myself. Some things might still be uncomfortable, but it's important to not focus your time on the old and instead spend it with the new :)

    dotsAll My Exs Live In Texas (not really)dots
    -------------------------------------------


    So there comes a time where one becomes intensely enamoured and drenched in infatuation and sparks of "love" when they give into social standards and tie a relationship up with a neat little bow labelled "boyfriend/girlfriend". Sooner or later however, that bow starts to unravel, wither, age, and wrinkle until it's too weak to hold the package together and blows away with the breath that speaks "it's over". Then you after that you not-so-gracefully fall back into your stag life, enjoying the extra moments of time savor life with family and friends as well as appreciating the new and experienced (hello boys) you. However, and this might not pertain to everyone, there comes a time when you hear from little too many squaky birdies that your old flame is courting many others, doing things with them that he was ridiculously against when he was with you. And to those who find themselves in that peculiar situation, hear my words. He was your past, nothing more. His chapter in your book of life is over. It was an amazing chapter, but it is time to move on. Never regret those great moments, fondly look back, smile, and then live your life. It's worthless to get angry, or to think that there was something wrong with you. If he did not make you happy, then it is not meant to be. Sweetly wave at him when you past him on the streets, for not all of our exs live far away in Texas. He was something great to you at once, but he was not enough to make you happy if it did not work. Stay happy with yourself, and don't be afraid to become increasingly aware of all the other blossoming connections you might have, especially that one with the sweet track star ;)

      first. billie holiday? stunning.

    second. if only all ex's could be sent far away. and yet... i had a friend who had a new ex every week. if they all lived in exile in texas they'd prolly form some kind of mutiny and come back and shipwreck her... you know?

    but youre right. more often than not there is a reason they are called ex.
    and sometimes remembering the good times is much too hard. and sometimes there werent any good times.

    one time i went to a wedding, drank rum straight and kissed this guy a lot because i was cold and he gave me his suit coat to wear.

    not my style at all. ever.

    it took me one month to work out how to not see him again. he kept turning up at my house in the weekends and we would drink.
    one weekend i said lets not drink. lets just hang out. and i discovered he was one of the most boring people the world had to offer.

    life would be kinder to him if he was a perpetual drunk but thats not fair to wish on him. though im not sure he would object haha.

    anyways yes. if he was in texas living next door to the kid who asked me out when i was 7 im sure they both would be drinking and having running races to prove which one deserves the girl. or the next drink. or the honour and glory.

    theres a reason theyre ex's. a reason that should always be remembered. especially in our weak girly moments.

    amen.
