    In Person

    Just to recap: The Wonderful Ex left for the Big City, and for Mr Property Developer. Things didn't work out, and I learnt that she was suffering from depression. So I invited her to stay with me for six weeks while she recovers. She lives in the guest room and we don't touch or...

    I Guess Thats What You'd Call Him.

    Even though it wasn't a "real" relationship.  He is under this illusion that he is going to "get me back".  It won't happen.  Not ever again.  Because he hurt me.  He turned me into the miserable, bitter, ***** that I can be at times...
