I suppose everyone has got one ex that for whatever reason got under their skin more than all those other girls, a girl we really gave a sh1t about and for a lot of us I'm guessing losing that person was a strong motivator for us getting into PUA.
For me, I split with this girl almost a year ago to the day, completely initiated by her, and it blew me apart. To cut a long story short, we were off and on for about two months after that initial split until I dropped a huge A-bomb on the situation, said some things, hurt her real bad... all so I could get a clean break because because I had a lot of work/school pressures and the situation with my ex was starting to affect it.
Fast forward a year... right through me discovering PUA, dating and hooking up with a string of women, finishing top of my class at university, securing a solid employment contract, quitting smoking and bumping into my ex on just two occasions (both of which resulted in either an awkward hello or a stare-down between her friends and mine)... to last night.
One year to the day since our initial split I bump into her at a club and after running the gauntlet of her abusive bitch friends and successfully brushing them off I chatted with my ex for about an hour, it was like rolling back the clock, we're swapping stories, laughing, she's giving me Kino, telling me how her current bf is a douche and that things are in trouble, all the while our friends are circling like vultures listening in, trying to interrupt, and she's brushing them all off so we can carry on talking, their presence is probably the only reason things didn't escalate. We left it with her asking me to send over some photos of a trip we took that she doesn't have.
My question PUA'ers is; now that we are seemingly friendly, and that I have a legitimate reason to keep contact, how should I proceed? I wanna strategise... I would ideally like this girl back in my life on my terms... I mean the girls I've been seeing are ok, but they just don't tickle me the same. Or should I write the whole incident off as an alcohol induced aberration? Some fantasy, grounded in nostalgia brought on by us actually being nice to each other an reminiscing a little...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
