I reconnected with an ex-boyfriend a few days ago. We hung out two days in a row. Went to a bar we used to love, talked about things that happened when we were together and since we broke up. It was really nice to see him and catch up.  I have always wanted to be one of those people that remains friends with their exes. We broke up about six months ago and the end was not good. He’s tried to contact me over the past few months but I just wasn’t  ready until to see him again until now. I also don’t have any intention of ever being a couple with him again, so I didn’t want to reach out too soon and give him the wrong impression. I didn’t even know that he would want to see me when I called him, but am glad he was willing to meet up. I found it pretty amazing how comfortable we still were with each other. When we got together it was almost as if there hadn’t been six months of life since the last time we spoke. I don’t have a whole lot of experience in the relationship category, but am fascinated by the way that people connect. We did hurt each other, and I know that we are not right for each other in a romantic relationship. But I still have genuine care, concern and respect for him and I am genuinely  impressed with both of us. And proud of myself. That I am able to accept someone else’s faults(and recognize my own). And that I am able to forgive and move on. And learn from mistakes that I made and make changes for myself. And handle things like an adult. I have some failed relationships that haven’t come back together so peacefully, so I’m very thankful for the experience and happy to re-add a good man to my people.
