    I get what you are saying to an extent@ Cleopatra– like if my boyfriend and I broke up today and I moved on and whatever, there are still certain girls I know who if he moved on to date them it would just irk me to some extent, like a why her type of thing. Although I think this would be more if I were still not 100% over him… but that just may be a personal thing. That said, and I think you know this, he can date whoever he wants, and you have already taken the appropriate steps to kind of block the knowledge from you, so I think a one off rant is a pretty harmless way to vent. Hopefully your new relationship continues to progress and you won’t even think on it in a little while.

    What Kare, Kate and Mucha said. Also, unfriending doesn’t block comments. You need to actually block them completely. I would do that and unfriend this chick and block her, too. Clearly there’s still a wound there and this is adding salt to it. So do what YOU can do to control it. Block them both then you will see no comments and you won’t be able to creep on their pages either. I know it’s hard to resist looking otherwise.

    The big thing for me with this is that it’s just too close to home. Someone I was friends with and hung out on a regular basis is maybe dating my ex. I am surprised she is oaky with this is all. To me an ex of any friend is just off bounds for me. I am over him (I know it doesn’t seem so), but I have had plenty of reflection over the months to know I made a lot of mistakes in the relationship and that he really wasn’t a good overall fit for me. I understand he is allowed to date, I get that, it would just be easier to see him on FB with a total stranger then someone I know relatively well. Anyways, I only unfollowed the two, so that is maybe why I was able to see the comment. Blocking might be a good idea, but I think unfollowing them works, as they don’t have any other mutual friends with me.


    @kate
    the only other Navy Guy on this site I can recall was Lyra’s and I think that is who you are referring to? This is the only Navy Guy I have dated, and we didn’t have a FWB when we got back together, I suggested we try dating again (Of course, that was one of my mistakes, so live and learn unfortunately), then I had to go home when I couldn’t find long term work. It was only when I got home that I looked for FWB’s, and now I am dating Slogan guy (To be young and all over the place eh?).

    I still suggest blocking them. The world can be a small place, and you never know what acquaintance will end up being friends with or dating your ex.

    I know it sucks to have your ex possibly move on with someone you know, but try to focus your mental energy elsewhere (easier said than done, I know). They might just be engaging in harmless online flirting, or they could be something more. But if you don’t see this girl on a regular basis, it’s not worth wasting energy on.

    I wouldn’t date my friends’ exes, and I don’t date my exes’ friends either, so I definitely wouldn’t be thrilled if I was in your shoes. Honestly though, it sucks anytime an ex moves on. Whether it’s a random stranger, the girl you thought they were cheating on you with, an acquaintance, etc.

    Date last night was a success! Date #2 is on deck for next Tuesday night! Margaritas were consumed, fun was had, good conversation, and a pretty rad goodnight kiss.

    And that’s all I have to say about that ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy St. Patrick’s everyone!

    Yayyy! I’m glad it went well ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tuesday night I hung out with the guy I hooked up with on new years…can’t really think of a nickname for him. But we had fun chatting then had sex a couple of times. We might continue to hookup in the future, especially since his girlfriend approves of me.

    I didn’t feel well last night, so my FWB came over and brought me chocolate. We watched Broad City, I gave him a blowjob, and we cuddled.

    So all is well in Casual Hookup Land.

    Last night, I went to a tapas bar with a really cute woman. We had a lot of flirty conversation and she seems to have her life really together, which is important for me with my open marriage. We have a lot in common too and already planning on another date next week, I’m excited.

    I went home, told my husband all about the date, and had hot sex. Then after, we booked a trip to go to this sex club we’ve been wanting to go to. It’ll be a fun distraction from our struggles with adoption that we’ve decided to put on hold for a year.

    Quick question. The guy bought a new TV because he wanted one. He asked me if I wanted his old one. It’s a lot nicer and bigger than mine. Actually, I still have an older TV, from like 2004 or something, so it’s not even a thin flat one. This doesn’t bother me because I barely watch TV anyway. I told him I’m not sure and I didn’t completely feel comfortable with a big gift. He said it was up to me and if I didn’t want it, he’d give to a family member or something.

    Would you accept the TV or no?

    It actually might be more of a pride thing for me.

    @ktfran I’d accept it if you like it. He’s going to give it away one way or the other, whether you accept it or not, he has no further use for it and needs to get rid of it. If it up grades what you’ve got why not accept it? You probably give things away from time to time too.
