Someone Else Took My Road Not Taken...

I think my head knows the answer to this already, my heart just needs to hear a couple other people saying the same thing... I just found out that an ex is not only with a new girlfriend, but that they're moving in together. And some of the time frame sounds really similar to what he and I went through, except I made a different choice -- and now I'm wondering if I actually made the wrong choice. [more inside]

lunch with the ex ...good idea?

I've just accepted to go for lunch with my ex-girlfriend. I called her a couple of weeks ago to let her know that I still some of her belongings that I'd like to give back to her - and while she's emailed, called and texted me since then to meet up I've declined to scheduling issues. I'm meeting her tomorrow. And now I'm beginning to question if the lunch part was prudent on my part. I've just really tried to live my life since we split in such a way that does not constitute any element of her ...and I'm proud to say I've done that. I've no more feelings left for her. Just respect, great memories and the thoughts of what 'could have been'. That's it.

What to do when you have left someone shortly before an anniversary and birthday....?

Two weeks after my girlfriend treated me to the most thoughtfully-indulgent birthday weekend imaginable, I broke up with her. Just a week has passed since we went our separate ways, but that means two weeks until what would have been our three-year anniversary and three weeks until her birthday, upon which I would otherwise be reciprocating her generosity. Is there anything I can do or say or give to mark the occasion appropriately? [more inside]

Fantasizing About an Ex

How do you ween yourself from fantasizing about an ex? I'm a twentysomething female who was in a long distance, long term (4+ years) relationship that recently went sour. Basically, the biggest problem had to do with sex (I still wanted my partner but he apparently lost interest in me physically). Now, I'm good when it comes to making a clean break in the manifested-social-interaction sense; I don't stalk or google exes or call them up randomly just to be "friends" or initiate contact ever after break ups. But in this case, I can't stop myself from wanting this person in my head. When I daydream/fantasize sexually, he is always my partner and everything is what I wished it had been but wasn't in the last month or so of our relationship. I would prefer it if people offered me constructive ways to stop doing this rather than telling me I should just accept it--it is painful for me and I just want to move on through and through, inside and out. Dating (rebounding to forget him) isn't really the answer either--I have made a well-thought-out decision to remain single for a while as I get myself together on my own terms. I'm hoping there's something besides just the whole "time heals all wounds" adage that can help me get through this.
