AIBU to feel sad that I've just seen a photo of my ex on his wedding day.
I'm fairly content with my life. The relationship I had with my ex was up and down but I do think that I never loved anyone the way I loved him and to this day I have fond memories of our time together. Our relationship ended because of lack of trust and other issues and finished on bad terms. As much as I wanted to be with him it just would always end in arguments. I distanced myself and cut all contact with him. I made a life for myself and am married with a baby. Despite the ups and down with my husband I do love him and family life.
I don't know why I feel sad about my ex. When I saw the photo my heart sank.
I have just been through a horrible divorce and my ex and I are not on speaking terms. During the months we were forced to live in the same house he obviously got together with someone. This person hasn’t yet materialised (ex sees the dc so one day they will know), but the day that she does I will feel all shades of shit. Am trying to not cross that bridge until I come to it.
I think it’s natural to still have some feelings to a degree about exes even if they’re not romantic. I think it’s ok for your heart to sink and for you to feel something about it because you were a big part of each other’s lives! It didn’t work out but that doesn’t mean that he’s wiped from your memory. you don’t sound crazy or jealous so don’t worry!
Oh yes; it’s the way you feel. It can’t be unreasonable. He was important to you; you started off with high hopes... it is sad when things move on and those hopes are not realised. I get it even though I wouldn’t want to be with my ex I understand exactly
YANBU. I was with my son's father for 14 years. We split in 2014. Within nine months he had moved on and got engaged. Seeing his wedding photo crop up on my friend suggestions, when I used to have FB, absolutely hurt
I could have gone to my ex's wedding as my DS's +1. Luckily he didn't want to go as as much as I like my ex's (now) DW it would have been a bit awkward (not that my exh would have realised as he has a hide like a rhino). I have no problem with exh's DW as she wasn't the reason we broke up. I'm just happy that I'm not dealing with his controlling crap on a daily basis.
