Borrrring. I misread the title and thought it said "to the lady who did number 1 on the bus". Boy, was I disappointed.

Just remember, you should treat others as you want them to treat you. If the tables were turned, and it was you singled out, you would be in a position where your boyfriend would have to choose between a party and you.
I was in a similar situation, where an ex-girlfriend started excluding me from her parties. we had mutual friends and it was a situation that was similar to yours. Its been years and her resentment carried through to the holidays. Well, people stopped going to her party and started going to an animosity-free party that someone else decided to have. Now she is the one to spend the holiday's alone.

Did anyone else notice that the writer said that the priests who abuse children are homosexual? I think it is important to differentiate between the two types of sexualities. Adult homosexuals desire adult homosexuals, whereas child molesters desire children. It can be taken from the author's writings that gays desire children, which is not the case. If someone desires children of the same sex, it does not make them gay, it makes them a child molester.
I think it is imperative that Dan, as well as others make sure to clear up these semantics. Let me repeat myself, adults who sleep with children of the same sex should not be regarded as homosexual or gay, they should only be regarded by the target of their sexual desires.
In order to make the progress of de-homophobia-sizing those who are 'in the middle' or 'slightly right-leaning', the semantics surrounding sexualities and how we refer to them, must be distinguished. As long as there is a belief that gays like children, equal rights will never be accomplished.

I couldn't agree more with the "she's trying to win the breakup" comment. She could also just be so self involved that she is unable (or unwilling) to feel empathy for anyone but herself. It wouldn't surprise me if her selfishness was one of the themes that eventually led to the breakup. There are a few options:
1: Continue this post-breakup relationship without saying anything (or doing anything) which would only mean that your current state-of-mind will not change and you will find yourself in the same frame-of-mind one year from now.
2: Approach her kindly and let her know how you feel. If you haven't done this yet, you are the only one responsible for how you feel. Her reaction to your attempt to change things will determine where your post-breakup relationship goes. If she recognizes that support is a two-way street, you both will benefit from a mutually supportive relationship. If she doesn't, then she will lose a member of her support network.
Good Luck and Choose well.
