If I had a chance to sit down with my ex and ask him questions about our former relationship, what would I ask?  To be honest, I don’t know.  Furthermore, would I want to know?  I don’t want to hear him say stuff like, “I just didn’t love you anymore” or “Yes, I cheated on you with someone you knew.” That would re-open old wounds.  I don’t need that right now.  People always talk about “getting closure.”  What exactly does that mean?  When someone says, “I don’t want to see you anymore,” that is when closure begins.  I don’t need hear all of your dirty deeds or why you don’t like me.  I like me, and that’s all that matters.  I never go back to exes.  Leave them in the past.

Huffington Post Women recently posted an article discussing videos posted by Glamour magazine.  This is a two part video where a woman confronts her last serious boyfriend. They were together for seven years and broke up two years ago. When you see the videos, you will watch the woman being hurt all over again.  All I could think was “How unnecessary.”  Why would you put yourself through that?  The guy seems nonchalant at first, but later breaks down.  You can read the article and watch the videos here.
