Potential Stupidity...

I have decided to do something rather impulsive and quite possibly stupid this weekend. I'm going to attend SERC's (Smithsonian Environmental Research Center) Open House. This is the webpage: http://www.serc.si.edu/public_programs/open_house.jsp

"Lisa, why is this impulsive and stupid?" you ask.

Well, let me tell you why. It's where Darrick, my former significant other, works. So, there's some chance of my running into him there.

"Lisa, why are you going then?" you ask.

It's certainly not because of him. Darrick and I have a mutual friend, Tim. He also works at the same place. Considering this weekend is one of SERC's biggest "get the news out" and fundraising weekends, it's very likely Tim is going to be there. So, I figured I'd drop by, look around SERC a bit -- they have some lovely walking trails there -- and see if Tim is there and take a few moments to catch up.

After the rather horrible break up, I pretty much stopped contacting most of our mutual friends. I let him have them, for the lack of a better way of explaining things. I wasn't sure where I stood. I didn't try to find out. About the only person we knew together that I kept in contact with is Eric -- and even that's pretty rare. So, some of this is about facing my past, seeing where things are, and moving on with the future.

It could be good. It could be bad. It could be inviting trouble. It could be nothing at all. Or, it could be a step towards me living my life.

Good for you. Running into Darrick could be awkward but don't let his potential presence stifle your life. You broke up with him so that he'd stop stifling you!

You might still even have feelings for him but that doesn't mean you should be together. You can't say that you've really moved on until you can bump into him in public and have it be no huge deal.

Good luck!
