realmolo: Time heals all wounds.


No it doesn't. Don't spread this bullshiat. Some wounds just don't heal and the expectation that they just will, eventually, hurts people. A person stays open, raw, and vulnerable.  I agree with your sentiment and your point, but not this specific phrase.  The time heals lie is what makes people say things like "you've grieved long enough" or "why aren't you happy yet" or "it was a long time ago, it shouldn't matter now".  It makes people hate themselves for not being "over" something yet.  If time healed all wounds there wouldn't be a mental health field at all.

realmolo: BigSquibowski: Angry biatch says what now?

She isn't angry. She's giving good advice.

Once you "break-up", don't contact the other person. It's that simple. The ONLY reason to contact an ex is to make *yourself* feel better. And making *you* feel better isn't your ex's problem. And vice-versa. It's over. Learn from it and move on, but don't revisit it.

Time heals all wounds. Don't re-open them.

/everybody does it once, hopefully they learn their lesson


That's complete horseshiat. There's many reasons people break up, not all of them bad. Maybe all of your past relationships have left scorched earth in their wake, but that's not everyone's experience.

But that's not what she's talking about at all. She's referencing "f*ckboiz" who "ghosted" her years ago. These weren't even relationships; they're glorified one-night stands. This article provided no useful advice whatsoever, unlike your post, which is actually insightful.

You mean, from when you were in seventh grade, right? Not like, some current seventh grader.

This. Not only does she sound like a bitter old coont, but she acts as if men are the only ones who do this sort of thing, and that men are responsible for ending all relationships.

The can repave the road, repaint the lines, add snazzy new reflectors, some new landscaping, new street lights. But in the end, the road still goes the same way to the same place.

Well, most do. Some are realigned, truncated, or extended.

But not yours.

It's true that often the timing is off especially when you are young.


Yep, high school sweethearts that drifted apart when one or both went off to college, same with college after graduation. Someone moves away for a job and the other cant/wont leave theirs. There's any number of situations where the timing isn't right or circumstance prevent staying together. The article and many here act as if all relationships end with one or both partners hating each other.

Actually talked to my ex-wife today. Of course we're weird, and still very close friends. She has an awesome bf and I have an equally awesome gf. It just didn't work out marriage wise. And we're both better off for it now.

Mine like to call me private out the blue and talk about nothing. I don't want to hear about them not being able to get their hair, feet, and finger nails done . They all know I has had the same number for over 20 years and won't get it changed, so they call about their bullshiat.
/I won't lie I did call my daughter's mother on some drunk shiat.

Too late.

We've exchanged sourdough cultures and mask-making materials. Pretty sure under the new rules that means we're married now.

Yikes.

Nope. Money, if there end up being child support payments necessary, or some sort of illiquid assets to divide.

Well, yes. Divorce is different. I wasn't really thinking about ex-spouses.

But *even then*...unless kids are involved, you shouldn't be talking to them unless absolutely necessary. And better to have the lawyers do it.


You don't need to be married for such situations to happen. Pregnancies and ill advised financial decisions can arise whether or no the county clerk has issued somebody a duly notarized sheet of paper. And doing everything through lawyers gets expensive fast. You only go to lawyers when your ability to fake friendship reaches its limit, as do your negotiation skills. Same general idea as how going to war occurs.

After reading that article, I can't imagine why you've been repeatedly ghosted. It certainly can't be because they ran to the hills after getting to know you.
