Posted:So during the summer, I dated this guy named Jeff. Jeff is a beautiful, beautiful man. He looks like he should be in a boy band...or on the cover of a clothing catalog.

He's also an emotional freak.

But I ran into him the other day and...

DARNIT! Why does the man have to be so BEAUTIFUL??? (He was...um..."technically skilled," too).

but i suppose that's what happens when you're 16 and he's in a band. ubbloco

Just ignore the beauty and remind yourself of the "He's also an emotional freak." bit and keep smiling smile

I've never had much trouble with how cute my ex's might manage to look (although the ones who lose weight and generally regain their pre-relationship looks after you split up are always a touch irritating)... but there are some who will always give me that 'fast elevator' sensation in the pit of my stomach when I see them out and about, as I remember all the good times we shared ('ahem, technical' and otherwise) smile



I suppose it's an extension of the 'grass is always greener' thing. The grass is particularly green on the side that you left once already and probably can't go back to...

Posted:I rekomend some sexual fasting (celabacy), followed very quickly by sexual exposiveness (shaggin' aboot)
And that thing that they do in that film with Jim Carrey and the actress in - where they have their memories swiped.
Being in a similar position, as a token of altruism and empathy, I put myself forward as therapist for the 2nd option!!!
Oh and if all else fails, go and perform in India - just remember not to work with the aforementioned X whilst there!!!
It does not help!!!
Anyhow - Good luck with the Labotomy and Shaggin'!!

Posted:NYC, you say "superficial" like it's a bad thing. tongue

So please allow me to clarify: I have no plans on ever dating, sleeping with, or in any other way getting involved with this man other than getting a drink or coffee with him.

But it is a bit distracting when you can't stop staring at your ex because he's model-quality gorgeous.

No advice needed. I know what I'm doing. But hey...

I actually have no trouble resisting exes that I've had closure with. When a relationship is over for me, I've exhausted every possible way of keeping it together. Sometimes I miss them when I'm away, but then when I see them, they remind me why we broke up and whatever positive/attracted feelings I had are crushed by the looming cause of the breakup.

It's exes that I HAVEN'T gotten closure with that are the toughies. Especially super sexy ones with cute accents who spin staff. ubblove

I'm just sayin'. ubbangel


Well, shall we go?

Posted:Yeah Gorgeous X's defiantly suck - It's annoying that mental / emotional crap fades much faster in memory than good times and looks. Makes it much harder to remember why you couldn't be with them.

Just imagine him modeling his emotional baggage for ya(that or bad plad hipster underwear) and he won't look so pretty anymore wink

And Goth Muppet - anyone who is happy is gorgeous - no matter how many treebranch welts they may have wink It's the 'getting happy' thing post relationship thats hard sometimes but it comes eventually.

But that has nothing to do with my ex, who is still hot. shrug



Mind you, I have no ill wishes against my ex. I honestly and truly wish him all the best. We just weren't for each-other.

Posted:Flame boy, I'd have no problem doing that. But remember the "emotional freak" part? Ok, it's a bit strong, but he has trouble separating the two.

Besides, in spite of what it may sound like, I actually do have a frontal cortex (or "superego" if you're into Sigmund) and can control my base impulses and desires. In other words, I don't necessarily have to shag anything that moves to feel fulfilled in my life.
