I'm so grateful for the relationship I've been able to create with my ex-boyfriend. It was rough going for a few years after our breakup in 2001, but we're finally in a place that allows us to revisit those bases of friendship that first brought us together. We had dinner with his friends tonight (who I miss) and then went out for beers. Perhaps it's the comfort of being with a man who I love and respect, or the confidence he inspires in me, but I was getting a fair bit of attention tonight.
The ex as wing-man: interesting concept. But I don't think I could do it for him. Not yet, anyway.
