I must admit<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">: I'm a bit ashamed by this... but DexP broke up with his girlfriend today.... and quite frankly I am sooo happy it's not even funny... giddy even!<br>
I KNOW it doesn't mean for a fact he and I are getting back together, or that even if we did it would work or anything like that... but I feel like some how I can relax a little with her out of the picture.<br><br>
I feel sooooo guilty for being happy while I KNOW some one else is in pain.... but I can't help it!!!!<br><br>
I know I sound like the MOST insensitive person in the world and i shouldn't even be posting this but, well... I love you guys and needed to share my "news"<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

WhiteWax-- Don't tell anyone how petty I am, but I would be celebrating, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Just don't let his new lonely period mess with you. You know what you need to do for yourself. Keep doing it. We're all here to back you up.<br><br>
Enjoy your wicked feelings, then laugh them off, let them go, and enjoy being a sweet person with a kinda dumb exP in her past! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>

I wouldn't feel bad for her at all, she got involved with a man who was already partnered and had a baby on the way. IMO, she was playing with fire. Yeah, she may have not known the whole story, but she still put herself in a bad situation that was likely to end bad. Wow, I sound pretty mean huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief">:

My thoughts exactly. He clearly deserves what he's getting at this point. And she's either fairly foolish, or also richly deserving of a little unpleasantness. I see no harm in your happiness - you didn't cause the breakup, after all. And you might as well find joy in whatever life brings, right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Just don't let this change your stance on things. Move forward with the intention of doing whatever is best for you and your girls, he's not your problem. And if he does decide he wants to come back, make him work his butt off for it! You need a lot of proof to believe that he's going to be anything but a source of pain for you in the future.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> to you. Revel in your "happy" news!

thanks ladies... it's good to hear I'm not being completely psycho by smiling about it all....<br><br>
at least I know where he *wont* be when i go into labor!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
And as far as he and I... I dont know where *we* stand and I dont think he does either... but at least he's not standing beside her right now. Maybe now he will take some time to think things out for himself.
