Good qualities of your EX......lets hear itPage 2 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Very smart...he was the smartest man I've ever known. Science smart, book smart, math smart, history smart (kind of a money dummy though). Conversations were great...I always learned something!! And he was a naturally great teacher, he is an airline pilot...but he should have been a school teacher.

She was really pretty (I'm ugly)
She was very organized (I'm ADD)
She had high standards (I don't)
She understood me (I still don't)

Best thing and I still owe him big time: No complaints when I was a FT Mom for 1 year with our first. That was cool - thanks for the memories. Funny thing is, later in the marriage he thought I should appreciate that he *let* me work *lol* Never said a word about bringing home the money for that year. Different values, I guess.

@everyone,
if all your ex's have such good qualities, why are they ex's?

I only demonize one of my exes and I don't do it in the forums because it's pointless, I just do it in my mind now and then. All of my exes still have the same qualities that made me want them in the first place, but the relationships didn't last for many reasons, the most common one being: we didn't want to keep going.

They were good guys and we had fun while it lasted.

My ex decided he couldn't handle the responsibility of being married anymore.

HIS choice, not mine - but you play the hand that life deals, you learn to bluff on the "not so good" days, and if you're smart, you force yourself to heal and keep moving forward.

So...

HIS loss (and mine, in some ways)...but we're still friends, and we still speak highly of each other, to others.

Hoping...you have nothing nice to say about your ex? Why did you love them in the first place. I think the point of Kings post was to spin something positive. The world would be a better place if people would try just try to be a little more positive and less negative...plus if you have kids..you HAVE to see the positive in the person you had kids with otherwise you are setting yourself and your children up for failure..and I wish for my daughter to see me nice to her father rather than being a ****. :)

@neniceguysleft
No sweety, I have nothing good to say about her, but that is probably because she went back to a husband she never mentioned having in the first place - that sort of thing tends to sting a bit.

As for your post, fair point.

Now THIS is a DECENT thread. I get so tired of reading all the negativity and hate about the exes. (I know who you are, and you dont have a hope in hell with me )

So, that being said, YES, I LOVED my ex. There were things about her that drove me bonkers, but I NEVER forgot the reasons I fell in love with her.

She was Pretty
Educated
Intelligent
Had a sense of stewardship for the planet
adventurous, (and NO, I am not talking dirty here) We climbed mountains together, and were traveling partners.
She could cook freaking AMAZING dinners and for holiday events. MAN, she was AWESOME there. and her tastes were Eclectic
in fact, she was TASTEFUL
She was exotic looking, and European actually
and she IS still a wonderful loving mother to our children. I may have chosen poorly as far as a wife goes, but definately not as far as a Mate for giving me offspring. and raisning them well.

Even her quirks. Her dorky theories that were based in absolutely no factual basis at all
the funny crease she would get between her eyes when she was pi$$ed off

On my very worst days when it looked like a mac truck backed over my face..he told me everyday how beautiful I was. and yto this day although he;s long gone and happily in love again he still tell my kids that thier mom was the most beautiful woman he ever met..
To bad he wrecked it by cheating..lol ah well he is me dearest friend now and I wish him every happiness every day.

Hes in England?
Actually I will talk about the one that I respected (not the last jerk)
He was kind (sometimes too much)
He respected my parents
He worked hard on trying to acheive his goals
He loved my cat :)

But distance and the realization that we were more a family member to eachother than lovers and friends - we had to end it.

Mine would...if he was talking to someone else, especially; he reserved the nasty sh!t to say TO me, when we were in the "heat" of it all...thank god THOSE days are done, now. He's since gotten to a "better place," and has apologized for all the nonsense, as have I. Now, we're back to remembering why we wanted to be a part of each others' lives in the first place, and I know that if I _ever_ need him, all I need to do is make a phone call and he'll drop everything AND move heaven & earth, if necessary.

Mine would probably stretch the truth like she seems to enjoy doing and paint a nasty picture of me like she did. But she would say I am a good daddy so Who cares

Hey OTB I totally agree with ya...the negative gets a little old. Again I have to say that he was the man I fell in love with and married...and although we grew up into different people we still loved each other once..oh hell we still love each other..and respect each other but not like we once did. So he would also say nice things about me. He thinks I'm funny and I'm a good mommy. And a flippin goddess in the bedroom hahaha.
