What it means to be an Ex...


I broke up with my ex over a year ago now after a 10 year relationship. In my opinion, I was not treated properly for a long time and I ended the relationship after about 2 years of contemplation. By the time I worked up the nerve to do it, I was completely confident in my decision. Although I knew it was going to be tough and challenging in all aspects, I knew it was the right thing to do for me. It was a heart breaker and sometimes I still get pangs of guilt. But, I digress...

So, after almost 6 months of still cohabitating in the same house, the ex finally moved out and life began....

Over the last 6 months, I have distanced myself as much as possible. There is a kid involved, so I keep things civil and don't interfere with their relationship. No problem...

I was out this evening at dinner with a friend and my phone beeped at me. I looked at the message, didn't recognize the number or what the message ment, so I texted back "who is this". Well, I didn't receive an answer to that question, but the next message gave me a clue as to who it was. I looked up the phone number that showed on the text (I don't remember peoples phone numbers anymore - the names pop up on my phone when they call). Yes, it was the ex. Turns out the ex got a new puppy and wanted to tell me all about it. I text back "I'm out I'll talk to you later". That did it and there were no more messages.

What I don't understand is what would make this person think I was remotely interested that a new puppy was there? I hope they are happy and have a long life together, but come on! Why would an EX think I'd care?

Just something for thought...
