Breakups are a whirlwind of emotions. There's a lot of uncertainty, sadness, fear, disappointment and depending on the relationship, there's sometimes anger (or even relief). Whether your relationship ended well or on a bad note, these are things that your ex is definitely thinking right now.

  • "Wow, I didn't realize how much we did together."
  • "Everything reminds me of you."
  • "Was breaking up the right thing to do?"
  • "What if you start dating someone else right away?"
  • "Wow, I'll never get anyone better."
  • "I have no idea what I'm going to do if we run into each other in public."
  • "My family members will be asking me about you the next time I see them. What do I say?"
  • "I hope you're okay. Really, I want you to be happy."
  • "I'm so angry at you for all the drama, your complaining and your arguing."
  • "I'm still so in love with you."
  • "When I least expect it, I think I see your face in the crowd and it takes me a second to realize it's not you."
  • "You were so familiar and now everyone else I meet feels like a stranger."
  • "I'm fine. I'm totally over you. I'm so glad to be free."
  • "Suddenly I have so much free time. I didn't realize how much time we spent together until you were gone."
  • "I'm really scared. What if no one ever loves me the way you did?"
  • "In a way, our breakup is forcing me to prioritize my life. When I'm hurting, I'm suddenly grateful for my true friends who are willing to support me."
  • "The worst thing about our breakup are the dozens of people who ask me how you're doing, and I have to say we broke up."
  • "You taught me so much about relationships and about myself. Thank you."
  • "There's so much stuff I have that reminds me of you. Shirts I wore in pictures of us, presents you gave me...and I'm torn between keeping them forever and just throwing them away."
  • "I keep looking at my phone expecting you to text me."
  • "Don't pay attention to my social media. I'm trying to convince myself I've already moved on."
  • "I wish you the best. I really loved you and hope you find a happy and fulfilling life."
Breaking up is never fun, but sometimes it's better than staying together. Learn from this experience and let yourself heal.
