I have never had that problem. All my exes see me all the time and can hardly wait until I'm alone -- and vulnerable..................

    Sounds like trouble.

Well, as kiss offs go, it was at least calm and matter-of-fact. So often there are recriminations and hysteria which accompany the adieu. Still when one has built a relationship it is tough to see it dismissed so casually. Nicely done and thank you very much for sharing it.

Thanks for sharing. I liked to read your extract. It's always sad to say goodbye but it's even sadder you never saw her again. Thanks again.

I know the feeling. I know this is fiction, but I had a boyfreind and I hoped to remain friends which we did for a short time. He even came by and sat with my husband, but as soon as he got married, he was totally gone. Thanks for sharing

I completely understand. My husband was active duty for 23 years. Most places we lived I had a dear and extremely close friend. Then PCS time came and one of us would moved promising to always stay in touch. It never happens longer than a few months. Thank you for sharing.

A very succinct little story. Life goes on and paths drift in different directions. This is a fiction piece but if truth be told, this is the way it is. I enjoyed reading this. Is there a fragment in YOUR story? Buddies until the end. Surely, it was intentional.
Have a great weekend,
Blessings,
Brigitte

    I think she took the easy way out. She said they would be friends, but didn't mean it.

This is an interesting write which most people will identify with. I always feel that revisiting ended relationships is never a good idea. If they didn't work out the first to tenth time, why figure they would be any better on the 11th time? Letting them die a graceful death is preferable. Marilyn

Isn't that the way it always goes, promising to stay in touch but never do. Years later wondering what happened to them. It's well-written, dialogue, the scene seemed like a natural everyday event. Not a bit boring like Phyills claims. I know she's only joking, great job of course.

Some people look at, "Good Bye," as rejection. This is very well written with a smooth flow of words, making for a very interesting read. There is very good imagery.

I'm so sorry, Thomas, it just never occurred to me that you really meant it when we agreed to remain friends. I thought we were merely being ex-lovers correct.

By the way, you look much younger in this photo than you did when we were together. Nice chin fur. Yearn to stroke it, I do.
