Six Ghosts of Boyfriends Past
The Internet just informed me that my ex is engaged. You'd think with modern technology advances, Facebook would know what not to show me by now. Even so, this information isn't exactly a shock or a dagger to the heart. It's more of an "Oh. OK then. Good for him." Years ago I wouldn't have seen it that way, though. But what is dating for, if not to teach us what we don't want? Each special person to cross our paths leaves a mark, a lesson -- sometimes in the form of scars, other times as fond memories. Yet in the end they play the same role -- they teach. These are a few of those individuals who have crossed my path and the lessons they have now left in their absence -- some fresh and still painful, others long past healed.
