Wasn't expecting that.....
Went for a friendly catch up breakfast on Friday with WG. Not seen each other for a chat for about 8 months and I have a new job so likely to see less of him.
He asked how I was, I told him. I asked him and the bombshell was dropped. He doesn't love her anymore. He's told her but she's still in love with him. He's worried he's overthinking and says he'll just play it by ear. Deep down I can see that he knows how this will work out. After everything that happened, the confusion and heartache he wants to leave her now.
Genuinely shocked by it. He asked if I was seeing anyone and I said that I was but wasn't ready to talk about him. So he's been firmly told that I'm not an option. I look at him now and don't find him remotely attractive. It was about what he represented. It was about what I lacked but what he could provide. He was my strength. That was all. At the time it meant so much. And now I see something different. I'm not sure what.
