Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love. ~Charlie Brown
Okay - I am sooo bad for even broaching this subject, but I feel I need to discuss something that I KNOW we have ALL thought about. Here it goes: Do you ever wonder if your exes regret letting you slip away or leaving you?
I know, I know.. it sounds vain to even consider. But think about it - I don't know how many "boyfriends" or "dates" I have had. Seriously I would hate to actually count them all. Serious relationships - maybe 5 or so (I am a serial monogamer), but what if any of them had decided to stay and make it work. Would their lives be better for it?
Come on, you know we have all checked out our exes lives via this whole social networking phenomenon. Hell, I think half of the reason we even get into all of this is to see how poorly or how well an old friend/colleague/love is doing. I probably know more about the people I have known forever (now) than I knew back when we were actually hanging out.
Words are so powerful, and most people are not great communicators orally.. but the written word, ahh - therein lies the power, the emotion, the innermost fears and insecurities.
So as I am scanning different FB statuses, or glancing at pics or comments, or even reading a blog/etc.. if I see an ex - single, kind of lonely, or whatever - part of me wonders (oh the sick twisted part of me) whether they regret leaving me. hahahaha. Or do they regret the decisions they made in general?
Now what about the people who were too shy to approach you. Now as adults, they see you are quite approachable. Do they regret not attempting to get to know you better?
These are just my silly thoughts. But I have to admit - sometimes I wonder.. if they wonder..
What about you? Do you dare to even let something like that cross your mind?
PS- Sooo glad those past relationships did not work, b/c I am pleased as punch to be married to the man that I have!! I'm just saying!
