Last night I had dinner with an ex-girlfriend. We had a blast. We always do. We always have. I don't see why that should be dependant on my relationship with their exes. In one notable case, I kept the ex and dumped the friend. That was an exception though. Normally I keep both the friend and the ex, albeit far away from each other.
I value my ex friendships. I think it says something positive about me that all my friends have such good taste in love interests. So this post is dedicated to the exes, and most of you know who you are, even though it's easy to forget that we met through your exes.
