Now, I know more women post here then on the "other site", so hopefully you ladies can help me understand what might be the motivation here.
I dated a girl for 2 1/2 years or so. We broke up over a year and a half ago. We haven't spoken, not even once since. We broke up because another guy came into the picture for her while I was in my 3rd month of law school. The gentleman in question is a rodeo clown (yes it's true) and he is now her husband. Anyway, so out of the blue today, I was sititng in class and she IM's me and starts a brief conversation, essentially wihing me a belated happy birthday and good luck at school and other pleasantries. Now, I ask you, what is the motivation behind something like this? I mean, we literally haven't said a word to each other, I've actually pretended as if she doesn't exist when we're in the same room (not often, but it has happened due to mutual friendships). So what would prompt this? It just doesn't make any sense to me. Thank you in advance.
