“You seemed so happy!”
“Well, I WAS happy.”
“So why aren’t you dating him anymore?”
I’m having this conversation with my 10-year old niece. She’s asking me about my Ex. How do you explain to a child that just because one person is blissfully happy doesn’t mean the other is feeling the same – or even if both people are happy, it still doesn’t mean there’s a happy ending to the story? How do you break it to them that life’s not a fairy tale?
I have a new guy in my world right now. We’ve been dating about two months now. I like him, but sadly, I don’t LIKE him. Always respectful, I would never lead him on or toy with him, but I’m also aware of this relationship’s limitations.
