It is indeed sometimes true that love is blind. When you first fall in love with someone you think they are AMAZING! And then when you break up and see them again a while after the break-up you think "what was I thinking, dating him!(or her)" ; "what was going through my head? How could I have ever dated that!"

yep, tell me about it. i have done that a million times. i just don't get what we think is so gorgeous about them at the time. i was blinded for 5 years. but if you also think about it, they'll be saying the same thing about us. don't you think?

I don't have a clue what I saw in my ex, besides maybe an escape from my parents. I had a daughter and felt like I'd never find anyone who wanted to be with me. I also think it was the excitement of an older man being interested in me. He cheated on me for 6 of the 9 years we were together too, so he really was/is a loser and totally not my type. He also treats our children like strangers, I never imagined I would marry a man who cared so much about his mother, but so little about his wife and children. I'm thankful every day that he's my ex!!
