Haha! Yeah, I was drunk when we met. He stayed drunk and I sobered up 5 years later. Now I think, "what did I ever see in him?" Best thing, though, he served time for a federal offense and all our friends we had in common are now my friends---not that I care either way---our split was about 25 years ago. The crime occured in the last five.
I think it's important to remember that your ex turned into during and after the relationship ended, has nothing to do with you as a person. Furthermore, its not a relection of your more important decision capabilities.
