  • I've thought that about people I dated, like "no wonder you were available!" Never about my DH though. After 5 years I still can't believe anyone let this man get away.

  • No. I've sometimes thought how glad I am that he wasn't her type and she ended their relationship.

  • Yes. Knowing them both makes it pretty obvious why she left....

    He avoids confrontation. He would rather be miserable than piss off the people that care about him. He is also a procrastinator. Not lazy at all though.

    She is very passive aggressive and self absorbed.

    They didn't work because she would get mad at his procrastinating and act out. He wouldn't respond to her drama because he didn't want more drama... That frustrated her to no end. It's funny to me because either one of them could have done somthing to fix the situation, but they were unable to see that and instead made everyone miserable.

    I on the other hand insist on talking about everything and when he needs to be motivated I just explain how his lack of action makes me feel. He responds very well to honest communication and through my example he has been able to open up to me even when he's sure it will tick me off.
