Do you miss an ex?

Do you wonder what they are doing or if they ever think about you or miss you or is it just me feeling this way?
When that feeling hits me I just remember why we broke up and that brings me back to reality

That’s why I stalk them. I never miss a thing that way.
I can’t stalk they disappeared off the face of the earth @awhitedot

I think it's more about missing having someone around to do things with...but why miss someone who didn't treat you right or didn't care?
Hell no!

I check the obituaries daily for her name.

Nah. Not really. Except for hoping they're well and happy.
I don't know how old you are but what can seem extraordinarily major when you're younger or don't have experience turns in to a blip on the screen down the road. And hopefully, people learn to not self-torture themselves for whatever reason people do that. It's a losing game. Why play it? You can't change the past so why live in it? Learn from it and move forward.

A couple of them found and reached out to me , but then I remembered why they were ex's...,

I miss him more than i can say. But im giving him what he wants.
@LostLissa Beautiful lyrics are hidden somewhere there, from school time - Leo Sayer. Had to confirm.
Fungirlmmm · 51-55, F
Yes, in a lot of ways, but can't focus on that
Gaiia · F
Everytime I think about reaching out to him to check on how he is etc I think it's a bad idea. I don't miss him, he's part of my past, like my past self loved him dearly but now I think more about myself and it's a different feeling , and anyway used to drag me down and make me sad.
I changed my number years ago so that's why it's likely he also doesn't contact me.
@Gaiia well tbh fuck him u better off without . U seriously are better without
Gaiia · F
@Darksideinthenight2 hahaha thanks
No, I don't miss him, he's probably a completely different person now anyway, but I got surprised yesterday when I found out he still uses
Our musical incompatibility is so obvious. 🤭
@CrazyMusicLover I use to use that many years ago now I like Spotify now
@Yesthisisme Does Spotify create charts and all that stuff?

Actually I know what and how most of my "exes" are doing because we send each other letters, and we talk on the phone occasionally. To me it's important to know which path they walk.

I don’t miss them at all, I ended it though, It was a relief, I hated being around them in the end 😅

I guess if it’s the other way round I’d feel differently.
MartinTheFirst · 22-25, M
I don't miss them but it would be fun to be back with her. I do wonder sometimes.
It's not just you, most people are haunted by those "what if" thoughts.
I was thinking today of a girlfriend that I haven't seen for twenty years. If I could go back to that time, I would do things so differently.
Men don't talk about feelings, but I have had discussions with a couple of close friends (drink loosens men's inhibitions sometimes) and they are haunted by the same feelings for old girlfriends.
NeverSmilez · 22-25, F
I still talk to him . But he’s got some shit going on with 3 different baby mommas..
I hope they are thinking about the good times.
ChampagneOnIce · 51-55, F
Yes, and I hope they’re living a life they love.
@ChampagneOnIce me to in ways
I miss the mind games
😑 not really
Benjago · 41-45, M
Sometimes. I think back to a time I was seeing someone and I have lots of good memories....but buried in the nostalgia of it all is also a lot of pain and drama. Even with that though I don't think a connection just completely dies. It lingers.
Lilymoon · F
No that ship has sailed 🤷‍♀️

I don't miss mine but i did wonder what he was doing.. unfortunately when i wrote him i went on and on about the guy i had a crush on when i was with him 🙄 he's probly glad we broke up now 😅 smh 😒🙄 idk what i was thinking..
goliathtree · 56-60, M
Unfortunately two of my ex's are dead, so it is unlikely they are thinking about me. While I am sorry they are gone, I honestly can't say I miss them.
HootyTheNightOwl · 36-40
Yes, but I will always stay strong and not make contact...

You don't walk out and abandon someone for two years because it's no longer convenient for you.
Nah, those bridges have all been thoroughly burned. I no longer wish any of them ill but I also have zero interest in who they've become or what they're doing. 🤔
CarolinaCrushDaddy · 51-55, M
Nope. I am way way more happy now. I wish her the best and hope she is doin well. But, no way would I ever trade the person and the life I have now to go back to the ex.
RubySoo · 51-55, F
Yes. I still miss someone special and wonder if they ever think of me.
@RubySoo part of me knows they don’t think of me 💔
RubySoo · 51-55, F
@Yesthisisme im sure at times they do. X
Hope so @RubySoo
SailorMarz · F
I don't really miss any ex's, I think I've overstayed my welcome in those relationships.

But I really do miss a situationship 🙄
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
I remember all the girls i ever knew,some more than others.
Its just that you hope they remember you in a nice way.
I wish them all well may they be blessed by the light of God. Haha
I miss aspects of some maybe.
Ferise1 · 41-45, M
Yes we had contact a few times over the years shes still crazy about me and me her but we each have our families
spice1 · 46-50, M
Yes 3 of my ex- girlfriends, it's been more than 20 year but i still think of them and miss them.
ChipmunkErnie · 70-79, M
Not so much actively miss as wonder if they're still alive, if they're well, happy, etc.
Nexus6 · 46-50, M
She’s not exactly an “ex”, but I do miss someone and constantly wonder what she’s doing.
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Extremely rare I think about if they regret ending it.
Confined · 51-55, M
Dont miss my x. Not even sure she is still alive.
TexChik · F
The secret to that for me is not having one !
No. Looking back won't change anything.
Occasionally. I snap out of it pretty quick tho
@Yesthisisme Exs are for people who have been in relationship init .

I never had the guts to put my heart through it.
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
Yea but time to move on.
LostLissa · 36-40, F
Fucking not tonight
Manpower · 51-55, M
