The Ex Hex

Why do we read our ex's blogs?

Has anything other than opening old wounds ever come of it?

A deeply seeded hope that we will discover some evil has befallen them which will cause them not only to suffer, but to realize that all the ills in their lives could have been avoided had they only appreciated what they had when they had it, but now they're doomed to suffer through all eternity while we rub our hands with the sort of manical glee only true schadenfreude can bring?

Or - we're gluttons for emotional punishment. You pick.

I think my sense of disappointment comes from seeing how profoundly responsible for our own unhappiness we all are. It's not logical to extrapolate from one person's inability to learn that all people are doomed to the same... but it's hard not to come to that conclusion.

In the worst light, it's addiction.
In the best light, it's because we still care what happens to them.

Or maybe I'm just speaking for me.

Oh, I agree - not-so-recent exes who become friends don't even really count as exes anymore. They're your friends. Keeping in touch with friends is smart.
