Yes, I wonder what he is doing. I was thinking about contacting him because I never gave him back his diamond ring. He said he didn't want it, but I think it is the right thing to do. I know it has been a long time, but I don't think it is ever too late to do the right thing.

Oh, how I agree. I would not date anyone who was married. I could never do that to a spouse. I feel VERY strongly about that. You are right about the vibe. I get the "vibe" every so often, and I am not timid, I am just afraid of rejection! I think I can learn to overcome that fear, though.

There are 2 more guys at the gym--and right now, that is my only social zone. I will work on the approach thing.

I have an itch to call this afternoon, frayed. I had to leave my office so that I wouldn't do it.--2b

2B

I know the itch... I have all three of her numbers (home, cell, work) programmed as numbers 4 5 and 6 on my cell phone. All I would have to do is mash the button.. Sometimes, it's so tempting. But, I don't want her back that way... I don't want to know what she's doing... and I don't want her to know what I'm doing.. Think about it for a minute, what would you like to say? I'm guessing you have thought about it. What would he say? Would he be happy? surprised? cruel? Would the conversation struggle? Would it flow smoothly? Would you hope to get back together with him? I just can't initiate the call.. I want to feel in control if we have contact.. I need that for myself.. Your situation may be different. You have to decide if contact is worth it for you. Trust your gut, 2B..

I'm going to the gym tonight also. And, the grocery store afterwards... Early last week, I used the approach at the gym on a lady I see there a lot.. I passed her while she was stretching and told her I strive to work out as hard as she does. Told her the hard work has really paid off for her. I Said she looks very fit (She does cardio like nobody else in the gym..) She asked me my name and shook my hand and introduced herself. She told me I look great too. I said I don't work out like she does. She said it's the end results that count, and I look great. So, that worked out pretty good. I haven't seen her since except as I was leaving the gym Monday and she was walking out of the ladies room with a friend. She waved and said hello _ _ _. I said hello back and waved. I didn't stop to talk or anything. Wondered if I should have. But, I don't want to come on too strong. I opened the door... planted a seed.. I will give it a little time.. I'm not super interested in her anyway.. She just has a bubbly personality and she's cute. Not drop dead gorgeous, but cute.. Sooooooooooo, give it a try 2B.. Maybe we should start a contest. See who can start the most conversations with an attractive person of the opposite sex? Are you competitive?

How long until Orlando???

Hope to catch-up with you and obtain some of your wisdom this evening. I have some computer work to do later tonight...

Hope you had a good evening last night and a nice day today..

It's something with the moon, I actually concidered calling my ex just to tell him that my daughters dr. was changed. Why should he care? Why should I care to tell him? Excuses excuses...

2b, there are other ways to get the ring back, though I must say I think it will be very freeing of you to return it, an extreme gesture towards letting go of the past as you move foreward. You could mail it, or go through a friend, but I think you should do it with no explanation, and you should do it for you-not becasue it is the 'right thing'. He said you could keep it, a ring is a gift. Just how I see it though, I'm old fashioned in that.

Hey guys.. I'm checking in time to time this evening. This thread moves so fast. Wish I could respond to several posts on here, but my mind just can't settle on anything. LOL. Adult ADD? Maybe. Still thinking about Orlando... {sigh}

Hello Turnabout..

I'm having an ADD night myself.. Checking this board..... preparing a tax return.. watching some tv all at the same time..

I just wish Orlando was sooner..

It's probably an easier decision for me. I have plenty of vacation.. I may not even need to take any depending on the meeting time. Would you need to fly? I'm guessing it's about a 8-10 hour drive for you?

Are you having a nice day/evening?

8 hour drive, although Mobile now has direct flights. I'm comparing rental car cost to airline tickets now.

Having a good evening, just watching Big Brother. About to go heat up left overs. A little late for tax returns, isn't it? Got an extension, huh?

8 hours drive time would be pretty tiring... With the cost of gas and car rental, the flight would probably be the best deal.. What's a plane ticket running? Around $200?

I do some tax return work on the side. I have 5 clients who needed to extend. I have to babysit them and get them started now or they will all want them done August 15th (extended due date).

I'm not sure who all is going.. I asked 2B that question earlier in the thread. I believe you, 2B and I have shown the most interest and been the most vocal.. Too bad we can't get 2B online at night and over the weekends...

Yeah, I can't talk in the day most of the time, and she can't post at night. I hate that.

Watching "Being Bobby Brown" on Bravo now. Makes me happy to be single and free from MY dysfunctional relationship.

I saw about 3 minutes of the Bobby Brown thing last night. I hardly recognized Whitney Houston.

We need to send your boss away more often so you can post.. 2B said she has a computer she can set-up at home. Maybe she will consider doing that...

Big plans for the weekend, Turnabout?

How are you doing today?

Did you go to the gym last night and talk to your 2 new men?

The lady from the gym I talked to last week wasn't there. As I said, I'm not that interested in her. Just has a bubbly personality and seemed like she would be a good person to make a casual contact with (good chance she would take it the right way and be receptive). And, I was correct..

I had a weird dream about the ex. Left me with a sick feeling in my stomach when I woke-up this morning...

Are you having a "strong" or "weak" morning?

We need a post from you to see that you are doing ok....

Hi friends...

I love you guys. Thank you for thinking of me. It's been the usual this morning...I will be back shortly to elaborate.

Working furiously on this Orlando gig. I was going to book it yesterday afternoon and I felt rushed, as I hadn't done enough research on getting the best price. Will try to finish it today.

I walked yesterday instead of working out. It's sultry here in stl since hurricane Dennis has left the building. I met my sister and her friend at a sushi bar for a while. We had a nice visit and talke about where is the best place to meet guys. I think the general agreement was the grocery store or the hardware store.

Be back in a minute.

Frayed, I can't stand dreaming about ex. Isn't it awful? It's like contacting them. Did I tell you guys about the dream I had recently of trying to choose a wedding gown and ended up with a black one?

My fingers aren't as itchy today. I am thinking a lot about him though. I didn't want to get out of bed today. I just can't find a comfort zone. I'm so tired of feeling this way. When am I going to get an attitude? I think that's what I need. An attitude of F**k you. Sorry to sound harsh. And does it makes sense that I don't want to be angry or bitter? I just want to say and believe "Well--your loss--F**K you.--2b

Glad to see your post..

Can I do anything to help plan Orlando? How about the weekend of July 30? hee hee hee. Nice dream!!! You could wear that dress and a tiara to Orlando? That's how we could recognize you?

We will meet Mr. or Ms. Right when it's time. We need to keep a friendly, open aura so when they come along, they know they are welcome and we're not wearing a neon sign on our forehead that says "I'm eat-up with my ex". I like your new attitude "f&&k them".. I have been saying that to myself for a while. In fact when I'm pining, I call her the "Psycho Alcoholic Sl*t"... mean, but effective for me..

Last night was one of my few nightmares about the ex. Thankfully, I don't have many..

I've got a busy weekend.. that helps.. how about you 2B? Those have been tough for you lately. Have you thought anymore about home internet access?

Frayed--too funny! I fear becoming bitter, so I try not to put out bad energy by being caustic in my words or thinking. Do you use that moniker for her when you are with friends? hee hee hee.

I told my sister about your flirting contest idea. I have trying to be nice and out of my way kind to everyone I see, man or woman. I feel that will create a good aura, as you say.

I think I am doing a package to Orlando. I am looking for four-star at least--I'm picky about hotels. I will go ahead and check pricing for July 30, too. Might as well. My schedule is open.

Did your ex get drunk every time she drank? Did she start early in the day?--2b

I have to run to take my daughter to get her drivers license. I'm not sure how long it will take.

I will share my ex's drinking habits when I have more time.

I have been trying to be more friendly to both sexes also!!! My father told me people are attracted to happy people. So, let's become more attractive.....

I seriously can do the 30th.. I really have an open schedule.

Will try to get in touch later

Hey guys... on lunch break. Too busy holding a Krystal to my mouth to post much.

Don't think I could do the 30th. Have company coming into town around that time, although dates are ambiguous right now.

Dreams are TERRIBLE. It IS just like having seen or contacted them. My last one was kind of funny, but all before sent me in a funk for days.

I call mine "The Jack*ss". Not very creative. But my favorite was referring to the gf as "J___'s Wh*re". I just couldn't validate her existence by calling her his gf for a long time. I never intended it as a character judgement against her, but a slam at the relationship due to his reasons for beginning it. I've always felt that she had to be clueless as to what she was really involved in. I know she's been told what I've called her. I'm sure she wouldn't see it that way.

I didn't want to be bitter, either, but I definitely was. In the end, it will pass. If you feel it now, you won't feel it forever. It's a natural part of self-preservation -- the instinct to defend one's self when feeling attacked. And that's what happens when another person has threatened our soft spots.

2b-- I responded to you in the Appreciation thread. You have to go read it. LOL

Well--I just purchased my airline ticket to Orlando.

Sorry Frayed--I hope this isn't too inconvenient for you, but the best deal I could get was for the weekend of August 19 through 21.

My flight gets in to MCO at 4:15 on Friday afternoon--and I depart on Sunday at 8:25. Plenty of time to do fun stuff!

I did not book a hotel yet--I thought I could do better on my own than with a package.--2b

Have to share this with all of you...just a bit sad. We travelled all over the world together. This will be my first trip in a while without him...

Still having difficulty adjusting to life without him. We did so much together--I'm sorry I sound like a broken record here. I hide in my home a lot because there are so many memories that are too painful for me to face. I feel like my life is so dull and boring without him. It takes a lot of courage for me to say that--I depended on him for companionship and socializing. And now, I just do nothing.

At the same time, I want to get out and meet new people and do the things that we used to do...but it just hurts so much!

Thanks for the ear...
