Night of the Exes

Wednesday, June 15, 2005

Apparently I'm emanating a vibe that I'm single again. It's even strong enough to reach to South Carolina!

So last night I figured I would put in a long night at work. I ended up only working till 6 when I got a TM from one of my Exes asking what was up and saying I should come over. Haven't talked to her in at least a month.

Left there about 7 and on the way home OCD-Anxiety called. I planned on finishing grouting the tile backsplash in my kitchen, she said she would come over and help out. In true OCD-Anxiety girl form, she did come over, then just whined about being hungry till we ate something. Never did get to finish the backsplash.

After she left though, I noticed I has a missed call from a number I didn't recognize. I then remembered that earlier yesterday a long lost Ex of mine, "Runt," from South Carolina (Florence for you SCians) had IMed me and we chatted a little bit online. I gave her my number and she had called to catch up! I called her back and we ended up talking for a good hour and a half. It was nice to catch up!

We dated for a good while, up to about three years ago. We met on a college website and hit it off. She came up to MN to visit whenever we could afford it. The distance ended up getting in the way though and we drifted a bit. Then I met The Girl I Thought I Would Marry. After GITIWM and I split I ended up going down to SC to visit her and after I came back we had a pretty bit spat and didn't talk much if at all for the last several years.

Apparently she had been busy while we weren't talking. She ended up getting married to a guy she had been dating when I last talked to her. I had kind of warned her that I didn't think he was all that good of a guy, but that just led to another spat and also to us not talking until yesterday. Apparently a couple months after they got married and they moved back to where he lived, he turned into a pretty big jerk. She ended up leaving him 6 weeks after moving there and they divorced a little bit after that. For the record the "told you so" came from her, I never once mentioned a thing.

I do have a good knack for picking up on people's true personalities though. Any of you who aren't sure of someone, let me at them and I can give you a pretty good idea of whether they're being true or not. That's probably what used to make me such a good salesman, I can usually pick up on people's personalities very quickly.

It was fun talking with Runt again. We got to stroll down memory lane a little bit catch up on the last couple years of each other's lives. Good times! We really did have a lot of fun when we were together! Really no bad times either, except for the post retry spat and ensuing tension.

Always good to catch back up with a Thought-To-Be-Lost friend! Hopefully we can stay in touch!

I'm the same way almost ALL of the time, I just get a feeling about someone and I'm usually right on the mark.

I am usually pretty good judge of character but I have made some pretty monumental errors in judgement in the past.

Seems like you must be putting out that single vibe if you had two catch ups with exes in one day!

I wish I can say the same about telling sticking to my initial impression of a person. That would be handy to have though.

I've made some big errors too, but usually that's because other emotions are clouding the radar ;O)

I think I'd go into shock - in a bad way - if I heard from some of my exes, and one of them lives right here in the city where I work (my hubby found that out, not me). It's good you ended on a note that lets the door open back up now. Very cool.

I usually steer clear of ex-girlfriends for anything not related to sex.

I figure if the pool's been pissed in once, it ain't too good to climb back into, ya know?

But that's just me.

And having sex with exes is so much better because they rememeber exactly what works for you in bed.

There's a few I don't really feel like talking to again, and at least one who apparently is afraid to even look at me where in the same room... But that's life.

I'm having fun reading through your site. It's kind of nice to read about the dating experience from a guy's point of view. :-) Here's to happy singlehood! Speaking of the "ex"...I just listened to a VM from my ex up in the bay area. Hmmm

hey you! I have some good catching up to do here in your blog. :)

Careful about those exes suddenly appearing ... that is from a woman

You have some patience, really! Keeping that OCD.

Marie-Keep on reading, hopefully the interesting stuff is still to come :O)

Cer-I'm not to worried, the one ex calls every other month hoping for a booty call. The other lives in South Carolina, so there's some distance there.

Diana-Welcome! Yeah it was kinda crazy. Feels nice to reconnect with somemone though. Hope you're having a good day as well!
