When thinking about an ex of yours, does your skin crawl? Or do you feel a sort of sense of longing? Maybe somewhere in-between?
In most cases, even relationships that crashed and burned had SOME wonderful element to them. After all, we’re attracted to people in the first place for a reason.
And as much as we may not want to admit it to others, or to ourselves, we often miss the heck out of people, as these anonymous contributors will tell you.
10. The good days
When lighting up a face means lighting up a room.
9. You’re beautiful
And now I gotta say it to myself in a mirror like a sucker.
8. A clean sweep
Now THAT is the nature of true intimacy.
7. Enjoy the ride
You never know when another one might come.
6. Songs of the past
They bring up feelings that are hard to describe.
5. Laugh and smile
It’s what life is all about.
4. “I miss what I felt”
And conflating the two is what gets us in trouble.
3. Netflix and chill
Truly you had the deepest connection of all of us.
2. Grab life
Wherever you may find it.
1. The one truth…
“Give me my money back, give me my money back, you b**ch
I want my money back, and don’t forget
To give me back my black t-shirt.”
– Ben Folds Five, Song for the Dumped
Moment of silence for that guy’s shirt.
