I have no ex's to pine over
I should clarify, I meant ex wives..or a woman they were with so long she might as well have been one.
Plus..this is one I kind of take back, because I have seen men plenty happy to be rid of exes (yet, already hating and resenting the latest wife).
Everything else I stand by
I think that it's human nature to want what we don't have woman, man or otherwise. It's the art, for lack of a better word, of being content with what we have and enjoying the things that we many times take for granted until we don't have it anymore.
I don't know your life experiences, and I would extend my apologizes to whatever happened to you, but don't let it eat you alive. I am not trying to be "holier than thou", just a friendly opinion from me to you.
I hope that life treats you/is treating you better now and in the future.
