1. Shared Friends
Who gets custody of the friends? It's been an easy split with the majority of our friends but there are a few blurred lines. Is it ok to say yes when his friends express interest in still including you in plans? As long as he's not going to be there, I feel like it's fine. By now, I consider them all my friends too.
2. Ex Boys
I think my Facebook relationship status was single for about 24 hours before I heard from two of the guys I used to date...and I came dangerously close to running off to the west coast to see one of them. There's an emotional vulnerability that I'm not used to dealing with but hopefully I'll continue to keep it in check and not make any rash decisions.
3. Be Friends?
I am fabulous at staying friends with exes. One moved me into my apartment in NYC. I've written to ones in the military while they're deployed. However, there were always less feelings involved than this time. I'm still trying to sort out if we can make a friendship work. Do you ever stay friends or do you cut all ties?
4. Favorite Places
We have a lot of the same favorite hangouts. I'm not quite ready to bump into him yet so I'm planning Murphy's and Tony & Joe's trips on days I know he won't be there.
5. Therapy Shopping
In the past 2 weeks I have acquired 5 new dresses, 2 new pairs of pants, and 3 new pairs of shoes...IT'S FINE.
