Interesting SMS conversation I had with my ex a moment ago. It goes something like this: (Note that this is after I assumed we have already finalised the break-up. I haven’t talked to her in ages and things have all settled down nicely already – well at least I know that I’ve closed the book on her and moved on with my life already. Oh well, guess she was just biding her time to do the same :P)

Hi Craig. How are you? What have u been up to lately? How’s the dating going? Liz

To which I dutifully replied, answering all her questions. Ended it off by asking if she was going to karate practice tonight (She and I train under the same sensei at the same club). To which she replied:

Dating is going very well. I’m seeing someone at the moment and I’m loving every moment of it. I really like this guy. He could very well be the one. I actually just wanted to let you know that I won’t be waiting for you anymore. I’ve moved on. Also I can’t really contact or see you much anymore for obvious reasons. I won’t be coming back to karate. I just can’t. Going to focus on my rugby now. Enjoy your day and I hope things work out for you in the end.

To which I dutifully wished her well for the rest of her life.

I must admit to being a little amused by what she said, particularly the ‘wanted to let you know that I won’t be waiting for you anymore’ bit. I’m not sure she quite understood the fact that I dumped her for being unfaithful to me. – There really wasn’t any expectation from me for her to be waiting for me O.o? Actually, I have no idea what the heck she was waiting for me to do in any event :)

Oh well, at least with her dropping karate entirely means I can finally say that this chapter of my life is now all neatly wrapped up and disposed of.

And it means the not entirely true reflections of my feelings post {0031} no longer stands either :)
