The ex showed up this week with a new girlfriend. Took him days to make a plan with the kids, but he wanted them to meet her, so they finally met last night. Luckily, the kids said she was way better than the last girlfriend he had them meet who was full of botox and fake. So that’s good. It’s easier when the kids like the ex’s girlfriend than not. They said they thought I’d actually like her which was nice. And weird. And nice.
I saw a photo of the ex with the new girlfriend on the kids’ phone. She looks normal which is a far cry from the last one. But it’s weird to see a photo of the ex now that I haven’t seen him in person in over a year. There’s little familiar about him. The fact that he’s put on weight I know can skew the visage as well, but it’s more than that. It’s that I don’t know him anymore after all the lies and hell he put me through and really, I don’t want to know him.
But it brings up a little melancholy and loneliness. I don’t really want to be alone, but I haven’t found anyone whom I want to be with either. With Covid, it’s been hard to meet people and I haven’t even really tried. I disliked online dating when I tried it pre-Covid so what’s a girl to do?
I think it’s easier for men to find a replacement after divorce. Don’t you? What’s your take on that?
