Hi everyone. Its been a while since I posted but thought I'd share my story.
Me and the ex broke up when he left me after 14 years together. My son was 7.
Now, almost 4 years later, Iv since had a relationship with a lovely guy 12 years younger than me :-) which I broke off as I felt like his mum.
My point to this is, my ex, the one who left me devastated and broken is now one of my closest friends.
To think of all the hate I had for him years ago and how we get on so well now is amazing.
We initially didn't speak for 2 years but gradually we started being civil for our sons sake and eventually got close as friends. He has had a few relationships since he left me and I really don't have a problem with it.
We are going to Spain in 2 weeks as a "family" but with no romantic connection at all.
In fact I don't know what I ever saw in him tbh.
But as friends we get on better than we ever did in a relationship with each other.
I never thought it was possible to have a complete turn around in feelings for someone who hurt me so much but I have to say its the nicest feeling in the world knowing our son can see we care for each other and no longer at war.
