The other thing that I feel bad about is this. A couple weeks ago, when he was going to have a date with Buddhist, he told me he was "unattached" to the outcome, implying I should be as well. Then at some point after that, he asked me if I'd ever "meditated on mudira," which I guess is Buddhist-speak for compassion. Instead of talking about "compersion," and how I can get there, he is asking me to do something Buddhist, like his new GF??

Oh, wow. That is very reassuring. Not.

Reminds me of when my ex h got his new gf and all of a sudden topics and ideas I'd been trying to get him to see, and he was wary of, or rejecting utright, were now great super cool b/c his new gf was into them.

Ack. Bad move, guys.
