Should I contact my ex-boyfriend?

Recently I’ve been struggling with the notion of wanting the ex to know that, despite hurting me, our break up led to many positive changes in my life. I want him to know that I’m not bitter about how things ended between us, and I’m not mad at him. I’m actually grateful to him and I understand now that people who do hurtful things are usually in pain themselves. [more inside]

Babe Ex Machina

So a common subplot in a lot of movies is that the protagonist has a dull life and suddenly a romantic partner sweeps in and changes EVERYTHING. It spans genres from The Mask to Stranger Than Fiction (and of course the romantic comedy / chick flick industry would go broke without it.) I guess Cinderalla is the archetypal story here. I'm sort of curious about what larger connections there are to this thematic convention—like has anyone written about it, maybe focused more on Cinderalla and gender studies or psychology etc. [more inside]
