Ok sounds crazy but its true.
I split with the ex 2 years ago and have been thinking about him constantly and wondering whether I made the right decision.
So I just came back to Australia after being away 2 years and started a new job. I have been moved into a team where its just me and another guy there. So we started chatting and it turns out that they had a 1 nighter back in December. It was awkward to say the least, its not nice to hear that the person you have been holding a torch for has been 'getting on with things'. The plus side (if there is one) is that my ex was sleeping around on his partner. I guess he could have been sleeping around on me if I stayed.
So now I am working with the 1 nighter guy and its a little weird. Feelings dont fade overnight, but they do fade in time. I dont blame my colleague cause it was definately 'open season'. But its still kind of awkward.
SO yeah, that was the introduction to my colleague.
Umm according to the profile Cragley is a male so I'm assuming he is gay and it's not a she but a he....is that right?
Either way he/she is an ex and fair game for everyone. If you regret breaking up with him/her just do your best to win him/her back and forget about what he/she did while you were split up. Otherwise you are going to open a Pandoras box of jealousy and insecurity.

I dunno, everyone takes this thread seriously and then along comes JGPH1A and it degenerates into humour. Have you no decency man? The poor chap is distraught and upset. Have some sympathy for his dire predickament.
Seriously, Cornish has a point. Revenge is so much better than remorse.

If your ex was screwing around after you broke up and slept around on his other partner too, I'd stay away from this manwhore at all costs, because:
1-Who knows what kind of disease he's getting.
2-Why would you ever want to be with someone that engages in this sort of behavior when it's clear that it is not your game.
Cragley, I don't mean to be insensitive, but DUH. You show me ANY man (Straight or gay) who's HONESTLY intending to be true during a 1, much less two year out of the country jaunt, and I'll show you a fat bald guy who couldn't get laid at a Jenny Craig 'meeting for the blind'
Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 1): way to get even is to sleep with the new guy too,
The only reservation I have is; don't shite where you eat. Now if you and the new guy hit it off and there is an 'easy' long term vision then hey, go for it.
My suggestion, forget the ex.. I forgot mine and looking at the mess her life has become; I couldn't be any happier I have nothing to do with her.
