If you've been a SM for a while...do things ever get better with the ex? (Long)
My ex was my best friend for a really long time. I'm over the relationship part, I even gave his new girlfriend my blessing (she is going to need it, lol) but I do miss our friendship. We went to high school together and started dating junior year until our juior year of college. Right now I don't communicate with him at all until he can let go of some of the anger he has towards me (HE messed around but I'm the bad guy...man logic, smh).
I've been "single" for about two years now, our son turns 3 next month. After not talking for a year, we briefly got engaged earlier this year (he's all or nothing) until I quickly realized that he hadn't changed. He still blames me for everything...I don't have Devyn call him...I don't bring Devyn to see him (but he can go see the ex gf 3 hours away)...I didn't take Dev to him on fathers day after he wrecked his car (he wasn't talking to me at the time)...
After a couple of months of craziness (we won't even go there...) I had to go GI barbie on his butt one good time to get the craziness to stop but now we simply don't communicate. He never calls his son or comes to see him unless its a holiday. For now, I'm just living my life the best way I can and the Devster is my first priority. Though, it is hard to give up that little shred of hope that one day we'll be friends again.
I know it wont be any time soon but I'm wondering if we'll ever be able to be friendly and coparent? Do they stay evil forever? And what is the best approach to initiating coparenting?
