What do i know about boyfriends or keeping relationships but we can all relate to different types of Ex’s given our conversations with girls and guys about their exes. These are a few types of Ex
1. The first ex
This ex is the one who turned you into the bitter realist you are today. You either broke his heart or he broke yours — either way, it’s affected every relationship you’ve had since.
No matter how much time has passed, you probably have absolutely nothing nice to say about him, as you still question WTF you were thinking in the first place.
2. The one who rightfully hates you
You cheated on him, you hated his best friend — whatever the actual reason is, this guy hates you and there’s nothing you can do about it.
It doesn’t matter if you are a completely different person now. You have scarred him for life and he never wants to speak to you or see you again. It’s okay, it happens to the best of us.
3. The one you break up, to make up… to break up with
You don’t know why you think it will be different each time, it is literally the same sh*t over and over again.
Your friends all warn you, but, no, you never listen to them even though they’ve been right the four times prior. But it’ll be different this time around. STFU, no it won’t and it never will be, at least not in the long run.
4. The one you pretend never existed
You know that one person you dated, for however long, who you would rather pretend never existed?
Maybe this wasn’t a full-fledged boyfriend, but a consistent hook up, either way, it never happened in your book and when people question you about it… deny, deny, deny.
5. The one you never got closure from
It’s been years since your breakup, but for some reason, you still just can’t figure out where things went south.
Who broke up with whom? And why? Was it one isolated incident or a combination of smaller incidents? Is there any hope for a reconciliation? Do you even care or are you just curious?
6.The ex you only miss for the sex
Is it really closure you’re looking for or are you just missing the intimate aspect of the relationship? Chances are you haven’t met anyone who’s lived up to your ex’s standards, which is why you think you miss him.
In reality, you are perfectly fine with the decision to break up, but that one thing is always stuck in the back of your mind.
7. The one you were never even dating
You were never officially dating and so you never officially broke up. But you go from hanging out one day, to not speaking the next.
These are the in-between people you hit up at your convenience and vice versa. Whatever, you don’t need that confusion in your life anyway.
8. The ex you forgot you dated
His name comes up casually in conversation and you burst out laughing. Your friends don’t understand what’s so funny, but you do.
You think back to when you dated this guy and are just so perplexed by what you were thinking when you did so. You don’t hold any negative feelings towards him — actually, wait, you don’t hold any feelings towards him. Glad that’s over and done with…
9. The one who broke your heart
Ah, this guy is the worst of them all because you definitely didn’t have the upper hand in this situation. Sure, maybe you had multiple exes break your heart, but there’s always one who sticks out when compared to the rest.
When you are having those really sh*tty, mopey days, you can’t help your thoughts from drifting to this person, pushing you further and further into your misery.
10. The one who still expects you to apologize to him
You have been broken up for a while, but for some reason, your ex still thinks you owe him an apology. You thought you both moved on, but apparently that isn’t the case.
You were under the impression that you could be friends again, so you start talking on a friendly basis… that is until he brings up the apology he thinks he deserves. All that does is put you on the fast track to never speaking to him again, ever.
11. The one who is/was your friend
Before he was your boyfriend and then your ex-boyfriend, this guy was your friend. He wasn’t a random stranger you met, but someone you were close to before you decided to take your relationship to the next level.
But as with most things in life, nothing good lasts forever, so that breakup left you unsure of how to handle this uncharted territory.
12. The one who is completely wrong for you
You knew this relationship wasn’t going to last, but you didn’t give a sh*t. It seemed fun at the time — and isn’t that the most important thing?
You weren’t delusional about the circumstances as you knew this would run its course, regardless of how fleeting it would be.
13. The crash and burn
Either one or both of you did something so f*cked up that the only option was to break up. Neither party apologized nor spoke again.
You quietly took your shame and whatever dignity you had left and went your separate ways. People don’t even ask you to elaborate on the reason for your breakup as your tone when you said, “It’s a long story,” spoke for itself.
14. The one you still casually hit up to hook up with
What’s the point of still keeping in touch with your ex? So you can hook up with him, of course. This doesn’t have to be a drunken night, it can be whenever you feel like it.
You’re both on the same page as to where your relationship stands (hopefully) since you’ve moved past the breakup to the makeup phase (see #3). You both simply hit each other up when it’s convenient.
15. The one you have to convince yourself you’re better without
Sometimes you contemplate getting back together, even if you aren’t on speaking terms. But as soon as that thought appears in your mind, you must push it away.
Remember all of the bad times and the reason you broke up in the first place. Okay, good, your five minutes of insanity have passed and you’re back to normal… phew.
