and I am finding solace in the fact that it will be so cliche that I will vomit when I hear the story. (I mean, really, he says he customized M&Ms for the occasion…)
However, the competitive little bitch inside of the dark corner of my heart wanted to elbow him in the nose when he told me.

Why did he tell you that he is going to propose to his girlfriend? And why does it bother you?

Why do you even know this? If you two are friends, that’s great, but if that is the case, maybe you should distance yourself from him if you are having these feelings about it. If you aren’t friendly with him and someone else told you this, is this person really your friend knowing that the information would hurt your feelings?

He told me this week when he picked up my son for his days. And don’t you get a little jealous when someone else gets engaged? Or am I the only one? lol

I actually would have loved a Valentine’s Day proposal! and i think the M&Ms are cute.

I don’t know… I would think these kind of feelings would be pretty natural under a lot of circumstances. I don’t have an ex husband but I can relate to having felt similarly when I watched an ex move on at a fast pace. You’re right, it’s probably childish but honestly, this post made me laugh a little bit.
ETA: *No offense intended* I told FI if he proposed on a day that was already special for another reason (vday, xmas, my bday etc.) that I would say “no”. Lol. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think it was cheesy too.

@NJmeetsBX: Me too especially since Valentine’s day if FI and my dating anniversary.
And M&Ms are delicious and I think the ones with customized messages are really cute (maybe cheesy but cute and thoughtful).
ETA: I can understand why you’d have those feelings about this situation since he is your ex-husband.

haha I think this post is makes me laugh. I can see how you would have both those thoughts. When there is a history, especially one significant enough to have some kiddos, you have strange emotions/thoughts.

I’m like you… I would find anything to make him look like an a*hole. To make myself feel better of course 🙂 V-day proposals can be cute, but if it’s your ex-husband I would jump on that cliche as much as I could!

I’m sure this was meant to be a little more funny than full on upset.
It’s ok to be mostly happy, with just a twinge of jealousy. And I’m sure a lot of people know way more about their exes than they’d like to nowadays with various social media.

I was thinking that i could sooo see myself feeling like that. The M&M’s made me giggle a little. I think you’re totally normal … or else we are both NUTS haha

Why do I keep imagining the OP elbowing her husband in the nose 🙂

@stateline: I disagree with some of the other posters. I think a little bit of jealousy is perfectly normal. It’s not like you are jealous she has him or anything. I get it. My ex of three years met a girl weeks after we split. It was a bad break-up, initiated on my end. We had a home together, and moved across the state together. In the end we just wanted very different things, but I was a little irritated when he flew his girlfriend to Paris to propose after less than a year of dating. I think what bothered me wasn’t the proposal so much, it was the vacation! He always told me we didn’t have money to travel 🙁
