"Soft-Core Friday" - What are you looking at?

So few things are as awkward as running into your ex. Not just any ex, but THE ex. The one that you kind of fell in love with and lost your head over and then when it ended horribly, you hoped against all hopes that you just wouldn't ever have to see him again.

You can move (which I did not specifically because of him but coincidentally), you can avoid going any place where you even think he might go (which I did), and you can change your email, phone number, etc (which I did). You would think that doing all of those things might be really effective for safeguarding you against seeing his face again. And normally they would be. Unless you are on an online dating site. And then he can still pop up when you least expect it. Which he did.

Damn.

And it's not the first time this scenario has occurred with this same guy. It has been quite a while since it happened last time and then he not only took a peek around, but felt compelled to send me a long heart felt email apologizing for being crazy and wishing me the best in my search for love. Not necessary.

It appears that this time around he just decided to take a look and see what I'm up to and what color my hair is now. No message. Yet.

It's still a little creepy if you ask me. And seeing that he has spent time looking at me again kind of makes my skin crawl a bit. Move along dude!

I guess it's one of the perils of having to put yourself out there in the search for what you're looking for. I just think it's a shame that you don't have the ability to slap a warning label on some people's profiles when you see them out looking for a new victim. Be warned ladies, this is one guy who is not what he appears to be.

Have you ever run into your ex on a dating site? Did you look? Be honest! 

And in the spirit of reinforcing my position on this particular guy, here's a reminder to him that we are NEVER EVER EVER EVER getting back together!

Happy "Soft-Core Friday" kids!

  1. Obviously to him, you are "the one who got away".

  2. I didn't find my ex but one of my friends did. He ended up dating her and sexting with her, before he put two and two together.

    "Oh, you're HIS ex? Oh, sorry, I can't do that..."

    Awkward.

  3. Yeah, I just had the pleasure of running smack into my incredibly abusive Ex with... his current g/f who was the last girl he cheated on me with. It's so awkward. I think what's worse is the fact that now he's back in the front of your brain instead of tucked away in the compost heap where he belongs.

  4. I've never had that problem but I'm sure it is awkward. I did however meet someone from a site, went on the worst date ever and then a month layer my friend told me he message her (same site) to go out on a date.

  5. I've never had it happen, but can imagine the awkward. And the intrigue. Even if he just spotted you and wondered "where's she at now .." he's not really moving on huh? You obviously leave a lasting impression lady!

  6. What a CREEPER! Ick! My worst nightmare is my ex reading my blog—for a while, my ex's MOM was reading my blog. It was gross. And kind of sad.
