I'm married now, but I still occasionally talk to my ex-boyfriend. We agreed to remain friends after we broke up, which is relatively new to me. In the past, my boyfriends treated me so badly that I wanted nothing to do with them once I got rid of them.
But this one was different.
We had dreams & plans together. The trouble was that it was a long-distance relationship & I guess I didn't have the patience to wait to meet him in person.
So now, although I'm (mostly) happily married, I will always wonder what it would have been like to be with him.
