You can’t get your ex out of your head
Everything you do reminds you of your ex, even doing the simplest of things like cooking your favorite meal ends up with their face popping into your head. Your ex seems to be everywhere and you just can’t escape seeing them.
You can’t move on
It’s like you’re stuck in the past and you definitely aren’t ready to move on and leave behind all the good memories. Living in the past is a coping mechanism for you and means you don’t have to accept reality.
No one measures up to him
If you have tried dating after your breakup, you’ve no doubt gone through the stage where no one can compare to your ex. Being set up on a date with Brad Pitt wouldn’t even be enough.
You miss everything about them
Their smile, laugh, hair, smell, voice, we could go on and on, but we think you get the point.
The break up really hurt you
Breaking up was rough and you have never really given yourself the necessary time to heal and mend your broken heart. The truth is you weren’t expecting to break up, you were expecting to stay together forever.
Dating is out of the question
The thought of dating literally makes you heave, you’re just not ready to get out there and meet other people.
You torture yourself
You can’t help but go over the past and replay scenarios that may have led to your break up. Overanalyzing every situation is your specialty, you just can’t seem to give yourself a break.
You can’t bring yourself to erase him
Your computer and cellphone are still full of photos of you and your ex that you can’t bear to delete. Erasing all the memories you have is way too painful for you to even contemplate.
You mistake random people for him
Whether you’re walking down the street or shopping at the mall, random people remind you of him. Maybe someone is wearing the same cologne or has the same blue sweater, no matter what it is, you really feel like you see your ex everywhere.
Seeing your ex move on would crush you
You dread the day you discover your ex has moved on with someone else, because you think it would really hurt you.
