she's an ex for a reason

I survived Friday night and meeting the ex.

(note that I didn't write MHE)

Yup, that's right. I didn't totally hate her.

I don't think that we are going to be holding hands and singing kumbayah anytime soon, but she wasn't completely awful and I was my usual sweet-as-pie self.

She hugged me and told me how nice it was to finally meet me. Hmmmm.

Since this is the first time in five years that I've met her, and in that time, Steve has only seen her a handful of times, I suppose I can be a big girl and be nice, right?

It may have also helped that she brought funfetti cupcakes with pink frosting.

Glad everything turned out ok. Those can be stressful times.

Glad it all turned out okay, and you are right, she is an ex for a reason and you are the current gf for a reason. Don't fret! :)

I'm glad it went well! :-)

I have to echo Rachel's sentiments. It's so easy to get hateful over an ex, but there's a reason he is with you and not with her. <3

Oh goodness, I'm sure that was hard. I'm sure the anticipation was the worst part. I'm glad it wasn't as bad as you thought.

I think it'd be hard for me to hate anyone who brought me cupcakes. Glad to hear that it went better than expected
