So my 30 y.o. ex is acting like a 16 y.o. on Facebook over his 17 y.o. ex. He was back in town a couple of weeks ago because they had broken up and he had to change his plans of going to Latvia to visit her. When I asked him why, he said, “You know, young girls.” And I just couldn’t resist: “Yah, this is what you get for dating a 17-year-old.” And he was like, “No, it’s not her. It’s her mother. She disapproves.” And I repeated, “Yah, this is what you get for dating a 17-year-old – in general, mothers will disapprove if their 17-year-old daughter dates a 30-year-old man.” But at that time, he insisted that it was probably temporary. Seeing his latest status posts on Facebook, I think it’s not as temporary as he had thought. Am I gloating? No, not really. It’s just something to write about. Like, I could also write about him going to get Botox within 45 minutes of me telling him that he had wrinkles. But I shall not. Lest I am accused once more of being obsessive about my ex.
