• My Dating Hangovers

    Why can’t some ex’s just leave me alone?

    Today marked the end of a 4-month “Do Not Contact” ordinance from the one called Mr. Jekyll, and while I’ve really only mentioned this ex once or twice before (see The Dating Resume at http://mydatinghangovers.com/?p=230), he is by far one of the worst hangovers I’ve experienced.  Ever. Maybe I’m in denial, but every time I’m contacted by him and I text a ridiculously foul message (last message I sent made reference to how his newborn was uh…not so cute) I say “that’s the end of him, he won’t contact me again”, I’m wrong.  So of course for every time that I say this, my good friend Dee is right there saying “No,…

    Unsolicited information

                                                  What are you thinking when you decide to contact an ex or someone you used to date?  I mean if you haven’t talked to a person in over a week or some extended period of time, and you’ve got your fingers ready to make that call or send a text.  We all do it, which I guess isn’t necessarily a bad thing (though I wonder what the hell is the point), but it’s WHAT you SAY to the person that makes all the difference.  Sometimes what I receive from an old fling is just retarded. Case in point – the text I received earlier this morning from USBC. …
