Traditional Values

I will say that I am usually a very traditional person when it comes to relationships but I stepped outside my comfort zone last night and did something very nontraditional.  I finally decided that life is short and if I’m truly going to live my life with no regrets than sometimes it is necessary to act.  I decided to ask my ex out on a date.  At first he acted like he didn’t know what I was asking him.  I finally reminded him that we had spent an entire weekend together, we’ve had sex multiple times and that when we are together it is like nothing ever changed between us.  I told him that I was asking him to take a leap of faith.  I don’t know if that is what convinced him but he made plans with me.  Of course we aren’t going on our date for a couple more weeks because of our schedules but he didn’t say no. I think I honestly expected him to say no. I haven’t even thought about what we are going to do on our date yet.  I’m still not entirely sure that he won’t back out on me at the last minute but I had to take a chance.  I refuse to live with regrets.  I have no idea whether or not we will even enjoy ourselves or if he really wants to go.  I know that when it is all said and done I have to be able to say I tried.  We are not over each other and that’s why it is worth it to try.  I may get my heart stomped on again by this same man but I know that it’s worth the risk.  If we could find our way back to each other it would be worth any risk.  If we figure out that it’s not the same than at least we will both know that we tried.
