I missed my ex when we split up. But it turned out my scope needed adjusting.

A lot of British vehicles have low clearance. Of course they'll have difficulty.

I got over her.  And under her, too.

I will have been divorced for 3 years this October and was just helping a friend fix his bike this weekend when he told me; don't tell my wife about this, she gets so pissy about every dollar spent.
This reminded me how happy I am to be single again.
BTW - this was a $50 rear wheel that got trashed and had to be replaced. FFS, I spent $50 on dinner Sunday night and that did not count drinks.

Did I read correctly that a significant number of people won't apply for a promotion simply because they didn't get one the last time?

Sometimes it takes lots and lots of rebound sex. Don't worry boys. Take your time. We understand your emotional hardships.

A-farking-men.

Divorce is the best thing that ever happened to me,

Dropped 100lbs, quit smoking, finishing my degree, and traded way-the-fark-up.
Not pining for someone else or love in general breeds better results.

My retirement plan involves cloning my wife and selling the clones to everyone who wants a decent woman around that doesn't care how you spend money as long as the lights stay on. And can cook. And drive stick. And outshoot me at the range.

What do they mean by "get over"? I don't think you really can get over an ex since they were part of your life and helped shape your current mental state. I miss my Exs now and then, some more than others. There is also times when I am happy that I am not with them anymore. I have never really had a bad break though so there was not hate or anger involved, we just simply stopped seeing each other.

Secrets of the Shoplifters is a series on Netflix right now.

Shrink went up like 12% in one year in the UK. I think lots of Brits are stealing in an attempt to get over their exes.

The interesting thing to me is much of the shoplifting is for a customer who ordered something for the shoplifter to steal. I guess it makes fencing boosted items a lot easier when there's already an order for the stolen item.

It is great when someone finds that person. Let me know when the cloning is done...

My most recent ex is the one who domesticated me.  Luckily that means my appraisal value has skyrocketed, apparently being employed, financially secure, and having no children in your mid-thirties makes you a valuable commodity.

You can't spell "functional alcoholic" without "fun"!

The worst kind of exes are the ones that make you say to yourself "What the hell was I thinking?".

Those are hard to "get over", in the sense that you question your motives. It's hard to admit that you made a terrible decision and/or lied to yourself.

But, you know, suck it up.

How is it that difficult to get over 'British Hot'?
 
2014-08-25 01:49:07 PM
There is one ex I still think about from time to time. It was during college and she was probably the hottest girl I'll ever date. I think I miss her naked or it's just that I've romanticized how she looked. I certainly don't miss her fundie parents and their crazy religion.
I've dated plenty since then and was even engaged once. I've learned I just enjoy casual dating. I'm way too selfish to ever have a serious relationship or get married.

I have one ex from years ago that I have shared stories about here now & then and everytime one our friends in common tell me that she wants to talk to me, usually thats after she is done farking over some other guy or pregnant. I tell them thanks but no thanks and give thanks that I dodged that bullet. It was a rough couple of years at first. But I am way happier now with my lil freak in the shower now.

I had a boyfriend that got drunk and beat the shiat out of me one night and it took me several months to get over him.  Love blows sometimes.
 
2014-08-25 02:15:33 PM
I left my wife (together for 8 yrs), and had no problem moving on at all.

It was the girlfriend I left her for that has been hard to get over.  Though she drunk dialed me and and drunk texted me, and that helped me get over her.  I felt like I won that  breakup, even though she dumped me (I farked a new chick the night before said call and text), so suck it.

Fark, yes!

It took me a while to recover from her and have any bit of confidence in myself or my judgement. I've realized that my love is so much better without someone who regularly lied, cheated, and stole.

Yet, she never could understand why I didn't want to marry her. I don't understand why I stayed with her for so long.

She's getting married soon, and I'm dating someone younger, prettier, and smarter than her

I feel sorry for the person she's marrying, but not sorry enough to say anything to them. Is that wrong?

That sounds like my wife except for the shooting at the range.

For those that think divorce is great because you have freedom, this is a non issue with the right partner. I don't all my wife for permission to do stuff. On the other hand, I so limit my purchases oye activities to things that will not be detrimental to my family, and because I do this, she trusts me to do what I want to do because I habré a good track record of not doing selfish or irresponsible things.

Not saying you do that, just saying that freedom is still possible with the right person.

I got lots of post-breakup drunken calls and texts from the last girl I dated before my current girlfriend.  There's nothing quite like sad, slurring whargarbl to remind you exactly why you broke up with someone.

But seriously, looking at breakups as competitions that you win or lose does not help you get over a former partner any more quickly.

Married almost 25 years to a woman who is my best friend. We joke that we are like a couple of drunks trying to walk down the street: by ourselves we would just fall over but together we can lean against each other and stumble happily along. For every problem that has come our way (and FSM knows they are innumerable) I am so grateful to have her.

Married 19 years, been with her 22 years, and it's just the same.

We have our disagreements, to be sure, but neither of us can imagine being without the other, and we're always there for each other.

Reminds me of a joke that you can use to determine in a crowd who has been divorced.

Q: Why does divorce cost so much?

A: Because it's worth it.

Laffers have lived it. The rest haven't had the privilege yet.

No the guy that married my ex was bragging about how he stole her from me. Yet guess he didnt realize that when she was cheating on me with him she was also sleeping with a bunch of other guys. Well the poor sucker learned his lesson 1 year and 1 kid later.

And more likely than not, won't have the privilege.  The majority (~60%) of first time marriages end in the death of one of the spouses.   http://www.divorcesource.com/ds/main/u-s-divorce-rates-and-statistics - 1037.shtml

It's the what I like to call "serial matrimonialists" that get married, then divorced, then married, then divorced, then married, then divorced, etc., that bring the average up.  But a solid majority of first time marriages don't end in divorce, and since 1980, the divorce rate as a whole has been dropping.
