A Walk Down Break Up Lane

E and I walked to school today - it's at least 7 miles and took about 2 hours. In that time, we passed near at least two of my ex-boyfriends' houses. Since we also talked about her recent break up, I got break ups on the brain. I read through Wiki-How on the breaking up section and didn't really get a lot of insight. I'm guessing, since anyone can write an entry, that the break up ones are written by 15 year olds. If they are written by anyone older than 18, I would suspect they have no life and be incredibly surprised.

I hold two conflicting views. On the one hand, I think we've got to learn to break up better, because passing these homes filled me with anxiety about running into these ex's and having a less-than-friendly interaction and on the other hand, I think it's really weird when people are friends with their ex's. One of my good pal's is friends with her x-husband and it seems really normal and healthy, but when my partner had dinner with his x-girlfriend, I thought it was entirely inappropriate and not only because of my jealousy (which I admit was a huge factor), but also because they really can't claim much of a friendship.

Anyways, more than my heart, my legs and gluts are hurting after that walk, so it's time for a stretch.
