I talked to my friend Leo last night who sounded a little down. I asked him what was up with his melancholy and he was surprisingly candid about why: The one that got away got married this weekend. Now, he was the one that wrecked the relationship. It could have been him at the alter this weekend. Why is he so bothered that his ex moved on?
I believe there are a lot of men who claim not to be ready to take the big step and settle down. They think they have more time, better options, and let’s not forget about all that freedom. When they are faced with the consequences of all those choices, it still gets to them. Yes it is hypocritical and nonsensical but that doesn’t mean what they don’t feel is real.
A lot of women run from good men when for the same reasons and then feel bad when those guys move on. How do you handle it when one of your exes get married? What if it is the one that you actually thought you would end up with one day?
Have you ever tried to reconnect with the one who got away? Is it ever worth a shot to find out where they are?
