What is the deal with these men and wanting to be "friends"?  It sometimes seem like we were all married to the same guy.  Do they really mean this or is it something you say like, "how are you" when you really don't mean it.  Does it make them feel better to say this?  Do they not know how much of a slap in the face that word is?  Friend?  I was you life partner, the mother of your children, your confidante, your doctor, accountant, cook, business partner etc.  Now all I get is "friend".  Do you deserve my friendship?  A friend is:  Trustworthy, Reliable, Consistent, Honest, Helpful, Supportive, Kind and more.  Do they really think they deserve that title?  I don't call everyone I know my "friend", in my estimations you have to earn that place in my life.  Can we be friends?  No!  But that's just me.  Sorry 'bout that you guys.  I just get really angry over this, at least for a minute.

    Oh my ex didn't even ask if we can be friends... He just asume we can be friends after all he did to me. And he tells our common friends we are still friends and that we are so mature and open, still after divorce. But you know what? I don't care! I am so happy with my new life, that I don't mind he creating stories of the large amounts of money I get from him every month (of course I don't get any child support although he is supposed to), and about how I abandoned and forced him to get another woman pregnant. I really don't care, because he is not happy, not because of me, but because of him. And he will never be happy. He will never save money, he will never have a good marriage, his kids will never respect him and he will end up alone, sick and feeling really empty and sorry for his life.
    Now I focus on my job, my son, finding love again, meeting new people and my family. Because that is what I am supposed to do after wasting four years and lots of money on him.
    Wish you all the best!
