I've kinda been a serial relationship guy for the past decade, punctuated by intermittent bursts of singledom upon which the how we roll thread has hinged.
1st of those gfs - 4 yrs together - ended on decent 'weve just grown apart terms' - we are still friends and chat regularly on line. There was a little animosity for a while, but we're all good and continue to think highly of each other.
2nd of those gfs - 2 yrs together - ended very very hostile, patched up in due course, and hung out last week in HK. We're ok, but there is still a lot between us. I'm still in love with that fucking girl, and her me...but there is a lot of crap between us.
3rd - 1.5 yrs together - ended very hostile. She ignores me on sight and told my staff a couple of months ago that I 'destroyed her life'. She was fucking crazy. Stories of her conduct have been documented on here in the past.
4th - 2 yrs together - the start of this thread. We're pretty friendly. She is now dating one of my friends, and with my sincerest best wishes. It is occasionally awkward, but we have all been grown ups about it, and honestly, she's great, he's great, go over there and be great together.
4.5 - just like 6mths together - ended when she left the country (see upthread) and on good terms. Terms promptly deteriorated. See previous post.
So I guess that means I have about a 50% stay as friends/friendly ratio with my exes, generally taking a bit of time to settle down....
