I recently was cleaning out my hard drive and I found a folder I saved. It was mostly pictures but also some text files I saved that I had forgotten about. The text files contained the last couple of chats between my ex and I over Facebook. I remember saving them to look at them later to help me get over her. I haven't looked at them since I saved them last October. I couldn't believe it but some of the things she wrote still affected me deeply. I felt the butterflies forming again deep in my stomach as I kept reading every word and it occurred to me I still had/have feelings for her. Even though the words were negative, it instilled a reaction; everything came rushing back. It sucks that it still affects me so much.

I don't have an "ex" per se, because I was the other woman in his relationship. Yes, it's horrible, and I still feel bad about it, but it's already done and I can't change it now. We were flirting and sexting long before he started dating her; the two of them ended up going out because she lives a lot closer to him. He's the only guy I've ever been even semi-intimate with (don't knock sexting. It can be heavy stuff) and it still rips me up inside the way he threw me in the gutter when he was done with me. I knew we never had a future together, but I'd have rather had it just fizzle out than end the way it did. I still think about him a lot and wish that things had worked differently (and that I had been the actual girlfriend, not the other woman), but I know that it's over. He's cut off all contact with me so I can't ask him if he feels the same or if I'm the only one still hurt over this whole ordeal, so I'm just hoping and praying that I find someone else to fill the void - or at least try to help heal the hurt - soon. The guy I was kind of with was very manipulative and an asshole to me, but I still miss the way he made me feel. So no, I haven't moved on. I just wish I could.0
