    I thought I would pose a question as I realize today that I'm wearing clothes from my ex today.

    What did you get in a break up? What did you keep? What did you hide before you kicked their ass out?

    I got a great wine opener that was expensive.

    What did you get? The clap? A child? Palimony?

    A broken hall mirror, a slammed refridgerator door that warped, threats, and a lot of paranoia.

    I got the freedom from physical abuse (yup), and the clear head to find someone who is a piece of heaven on earth -- as well as an awesome huge 1880s ball-and-claw foot dining room table with 10 matching chairs.

    Well, I gained a stalker that I had to take legal action against, a tremendous amount of grief and loss over something that was spectacular and failed in a colossal fashion (I hate failure), many beautiful memories and the knowledge that I am capable of love greater than I was aware. Oh yeah - and now am dirt-ass poor and broke as a result. LOL.

    Is it weird that I would fuck you for the rights to that dining room set?:confused:


    Isn't that the best gift of all.


    I prefer to think of them as "lovely parting gifts", like on the Price is Right. :biggrin1: Helps to take the sting out of the break-up.

    I received an all expense paid trip to Disney World including a 5 day Hopper Pass, a RCA bookshelf stereo with CD and dual cassette player, and a Broyhill sofa and love seat set. But most importantly I got back my self-respect, self-esteem, and a few friends he had alienated.

    Stacy, first of all it seems that I'm stalking you online tonight :)
    Second, I did the same thing. Was engaged to a guy three different times, who wanted me to change and when I did, didn't want someone who would change. Turns out he didn't want to be in a relationship...

    What I got was a 97 GMC 1500, the experience of hiking 900 miles, a few therapy sessions, my sense of humor, my family and my sanity back.

    Been single for 4 years and have had a blast along the way :D

    A little bit of self respect for starters (more came later), and a lot of emotional detritus and twisted body-energetic ties that I luckily managed to discover and remove (running in both directions). A pretty fair barometer of what I could sink to and then climb out of (mostly :) ).

    I altered the above to fit my circumstances. Glad to hear others have been through the fire and survived.

    NCbear (who was in it for 12 years and escaped from it Labor Day Weekend 2002--wasn't upset when the big move-out weekend arrived and it rained all three days while he was trying to move all his stuff out)
