Has anyone else had their ex/stbx tell them that they hope to still be friends? What a ridiculous notion. Why would I want to be friends with the person who has caused me more pain than anyone in my life? My daughters and I had this discussion and they told me they would rather we weren't friends because it would just be too "weird". They don't think he deserves my friendship after what he has done to me. I feel so fortunate to have my girls' support. They still love their dad, but they feel he has some serious mental issues and do not respect him anymore. Sometimes I almost feel sorry for him because, when faced with a choice of spending time with him or me, they choose me.He just doesn't seem to understand that, when he left, he hurt them as well. He also just doesn't understand why they don't want anything to do with his girlfriend and have told him they wish she would die a slow, painful death. Oh well, it's his loss. They are young and resiliant and will move on with their lives with or without him in it. Sorry, I started rambling.
