sounds like good advice. though in my case i'm kinda fresh out of friends. one pal has a girlfriend, another moved away. i have many hooked up friends with no time available to run around with single friends and aquantences but that's about it. i think that's why break ups are so difficult for me cause i really live a solitary life between the rare relationship. i suppose that says something about me..........in anycase i do have a true acceptence now that i never had before that sobering party last week. maybe it was good that i was subjected to the cold reality of my dissmisal..... my only saving grace is that i shall never see and be treated like that by her again....yesterday i went through the motions of a healthy exercise; i hit on a girl. she shot me down of course but thank goodness she was friendly and not mean......i believe one day my ex will no longer mean to me what she does today but i know from experience that it takes a LOOOONG time.
