Heh. I know how a lot of you feel, and this kind of a swap could be great fun.
The Story (if you aren't interested, just skip it
I didn't break up recently, it was a couple of years ago. However, we decided to go the "lets be friends" route and I agreed thinking he is a young guy who just broke up with me so that he can move to NYC and we will never remain friends. Well. Guess who shows up, takes on a new GF (and someone whom I called a friend at that), and basically still thinks of me as his "best friend".....just so he can dump on me about her? At first, all of this hurt because I'm still nuts about him (despite better judgment) and haven't found anyone worth moving on to in the past couple of years. It doesn't help that the break-up was mutual and maybe in the back of my mind there was the thought that when I was done with school I could go to NYC as well and we could maybe try again. Anyway...at first all of his complaints about her (which he made to me, the EX) hurt, now, they are just annoying and are pissing me off.
I've told him a couple of times now that I am not the one for him to come to about her...but his skull seems to be thick and I think I should invest in a baseball bat.
I mean, they are total and complete opposites in all forms and on all levels (and several friends have a betting pool going about when the break-up will be)...but when he talks to me he's always like "you are so awesome to talk with....we have sooo many things in common." I really wish he were in the same room...then I could bitchslap him.
Boys....no matter the age....do indeed, suck.
Another betting pool is the one that will begin after my graduation and when I land a professional job....people think he is just keeping me close as someone to "fall back" on. If that is the case, he has another thing coming to him!
