When this started I vowed that I would not let this divorce get ugly. My little sister died when we were kidnapped by my father during his separation from my mother so I know how awful a divorce can get. I was abused and probably so was my brother and sister. I kept my vow to keep this divorce civil. Problem is we are almost at the end of this part of the journey. I finally have the house under contract. I will close on my new home if all goes well with the closing on the other. I have only asked for the cats and half the proceeds from the house selling. All is on track. Problem is that the ex has misinterpreted my being civil with something else. I know his life isn't as rosy as he thought it would be without me so he keeps making gestures and wants to still be "friends". Although I still love him I want and need to fade to black. He's just keeping me in the background as a secure Plan B. Please help me with this one. I don't want to devastate him with some anger I don't have... I just want to part in a civil manner. Everyone comes for a reason, a season or a lifetime. He is a season...now he needs to move on. Help anyone

It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
