Where There Were No Doors

yeah right... congratulations... whatever

I received an email just now from K (an ex-girlfriend). We were only together for a few months, and that was a decade or so ago. We haven't seen each other in more than 5 years (since she moved to Scotland) and only email each another sporadically.

So why should it be so unsettling that she's getting married?

It's not that I'm still "carrying a torch"... because really, I'm not. She's a lovely lass and all, but we weren't particularly compatible... the guy she's marrying has a serious career in banking, and is (in K's own words) "... rock-solid stable. In fact you'd probably find him a bit boring..." But she really loves the guy. He seems to really love her, from what I can gather. And I wish them nothing but the best for their wedding and marriage.

Yet still I'm unsettled by it.

Obviously it's to do with the whole "time passing by" thing. K is four years younger than me. And she's getting married in 4 months. By which time I will have been single for longer than any other period in my adult life. Which - quite frankly - is crap.

So nobody should be allowed get married - or even have sex - until that situation is remedied.

And as for Valentine's Day? Just fuck off, OK.

News in today for me was that mt last long-term girlfriend (before I got married) has just bought a villa in Spain as a second home with her "rock solid" (yet awfully dull) husband

No torch held, no deep un-spoken longing, genuine contented severance from that part of my life is complete.

Still thought... "fuck off you stupid twat"

No explanation. Just a little empathy.
