Is it possible for this relationship to work
I have a "friend".. well to be exact, it's my ex, who I am now friends with. He is now dating a girl who he went to high school with. They were friends in school but never dated or anything like that. They hadn't talked in 9 years. Well they met each other again about a month and a half ago on a friend website (you know what i'm referring to).. They hit it off GREAT. They live 3 hours apart from each other so it was strictly online for this period of time. Apparently they had fallen in love with each other during this time. Last week they saw each other for the first time in 9 years, she came to visit him and they stayed together for 4 days. Now, he is talking about how she is his soul mate..how within the next 9 or 10 months he is going to married to her, he tells me constantly how in love he is with her.
Now, I dated this man for 2 years and at first he is a charmer, he is wonderful...but that is his persona. The real him comes out later, after he feels like he doesn't have to impress anymore.. The real him is a liar, a cheat, a manipulator, a mind game player, lazy, can't hold a job for more than a couple months..or at least that is how he was to me.
What is the chance of things working out the way he has planned? I mean they have only been talking again for 1 1/2 months, and they have only spent 4 days together in person, but yet he feels he is going to marry her. I should add that there is a racial difference, he is white and she is black. I feel he is moving WAY to fast.. I think this is going to plummet on him and he's going to be so hurt. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him anymore, so it's not that I'm wishing for it to fail..but as fast as they are moving and how blindly they are moving, I think this is just a disaster waiting to happen. What is your thoughts on it?
