Why do we seek what will probably make us unhappy?

This is more suited for here than my own free-fire zone blog, so let me make one of my bi-annual posts to suggest that if you want to be sure if you’re over a Ex-Significant Other, do a search at www.peoplefinders.com. They should really call it www.StalkersLittleHelper.com for the amount of data it coughs up, including family members and spouses.

With this nasty little site, I discovered that all my ex-girlfriends are marrried (one I already knew about) and that my high school sweetheart, from whom I separated under bewildering teenage circumstances has been married for a decade and has a four-year-old son. Google didn’t unearth much, but I saw her wedding picture and while it wasn’t as woe-inducing as I feared, it was still a little surreal. Granted, she probably hasn’t let the memory of me trouble her neurons since our breakup, but it’s still weird.

The last time I heard of an ex being married, it wasn’t even an “official” g/f, but more of a “kissing friend” (in the lingo of our esteemed hostess). I was in the neighborhood of her mother’s and paid a call and learned that she had been married a while. That knocked me sideways though I hadn’t seen her in about six years. I temporarily broke up with my girlfriend and was really shaken though I had no real reason to be. It’s not quite as lame as feeling bad that Angelina Jolie went for Brad Pitt instead of me, but in the same county of lameness.

Lesson to be learned? I suppose that the reason the past is behind us and rocks have tops and bottoms is to encourage us to not go back and turn them over.

See y’all in a couple more years!
