I’m curious… what happened to the new job?
I’m curious… what happened to the new job?
@Bride_Colleen: Thanks for checking in! They put me on “hold” and while I was waiting… I found out not only that I’m getting a raise with my current position that would make leaving for the new job *maybe* not makes sense, but I also decided I’m going to relocate to another area. So I’m looking at even better job options and possibly a transfer within my company. I’ll go through the steps with them, they had basicallly my “dream job” open but the posting is gone today once 🙁 I know usually by the time a job is posted it’s too late. So I’m taking steps to find out what else is coming available in that area.
Hey Dreamingbee! Don’t stress on seeing this new guy… just enjoy exploring where it takes you.
I started dating my SO a month after I broke up with my ex… we tried to take it slow and he had friends telling him not to get involved with me but we just couldn’t help it. Sometimes the timing is a bit wrong, but it is the right person and you can’t be scared of that.
The only suggestion I had was to be completely honest with the new guy and how you are feeling. If your ex contacts you, let him know and establish that trust pretty early on.
The first 3 months after I broke up with my ex he was a total turd… sending me 20 page letters, trying to find out where I had moved to, and basically trying to get back together. I told my SO every single time, and let him see everything he was saying to me. I felt it was important because my ex was harassing me so much that I didnt want my SO getting confused by it.
You deserve happiness, and whether this guy is the real deal or not, you should just enjoy the ride!
good luck with the new job and potential move!
@CupcakeLove: Yes! There are definitely some friends who are skeptical and some who are absolutely thrilled for us. I haven’t had any contact with Ex since I met the new guy but if I do I will be absolutely open about it. I’m so sorry you had to go through that drama of your Ex being a turd. Uggh.
I saw my mom yesterday and she is SO HAPPY I met this new guy becuase she said now I know that my Ex wasn’t the one. She doesn’t want me second guessing my decision. And she just got back from seeing our family and 2 people said separately on separate occasions that when they met Ex they got the read that I should have someone who *really* loves me and he’s not it. Isn’t that interesting? It was my older cousin (my mom’s age) and my uncle girlfriend who said this.
I am so excited my new guy is coming next weekend. He’s coming in late on Friday, working with me on Saturday (we do the same job in different areas of the country so he’s helping me with a special event on Saturday) and then we’re going to a friend’s birthday party that evening. Sunday and Monday we have entirely to ourselves since he’s taking vacation days and flying back on Tuesday afternoon.
And I booked my ticket yesterday as well!!! I’m going to see him the following weekend (short work week for me, YAY!). They’re long, nightmare-ish flights and I’m not getting in until close to midnight on Friday but I’m leaving Monday morning so we’ll get 3 nights together. He’s already so excited about where he’s going to take me (winery, museum exhibit etc) when I’m there.
I’m not looking back, I’m just enjoying the ride and the total honesty and openness that is happening right now. We’re both so excited and passionate about each other. Every day we talk, each night and in the mornings too.
I’m very juiced about the move, and not afraid of it breaking my mom’s heart that I’ll live further away. She is thinking she might relocate as well My dad is, of course, absolutely thrilled and completely willing to help in any way he can. He says it will be “a miracle” for him if I move out there. Still waiting on work transfer information, but looking at other options besides my company if that doesn’t work out or doesn’t happen in a suitable timeframe and I start to get antsy.
Onward and upsard!
Hey Sister!! Per some Bee’s request I have opened up a post-breakup thread for us 🙂 That we can be OFFICIALLY done with our ex’s and have a great new place to talk about all the good news we have been sharing with everyone! I am going to do all my update posting on this new thread, so you should join me…you’ll love the title!!
