“In another life, I would be your girl
We keep all our promises, be us against the world
In another life, I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away”
Do you think Katy Pery wrote this lyrics specifically for you? If yes, then it might be you are still into your ex. Forgetting about that love is still hard for you.
Read on to find 15 signs that you still might be in your ex.
1. You still think about what ifs
You think about the what-ifs and whatnots. You evaluate your worth what you could have done right or wrong that did not the materialize the break-up.
2. You stalk his social media accounts often
The easiest way to know whether he is missing you or not, or for that matter if somebody else is missing him or not is to stalk his social media accounts.
3. You regret losing your true love
You regret losing him. You go back to time all the time and regret the times you rebuked him or agreed to have broken up with him.
4. You compare him with other people
Inadvertently you end up comparing him with every other guy. Nobody can match up with his obsession for X-box. For you, he makes the best cheese sandwich in the whole world. You feel nobody is good enough beside him.
5. Too many hookups
To channelize your inner anger and frustrations, you take shelter in the form of meaningless sex. Later, again you berate yourself for letting someone else for touching you in places, where you actually yearn to be touched by your ex.
6. Overthinking about the time spent
Yes, you think and over think the good, bad and ugly times in your head again and again. You nitpick everything he did. Not only that you try to justify his every action in your head.
7. You find reasons to contact him
It does not matter how silly or big the occasion is. It may be your best friend’s birthday or the bad omelet you had in your breakfast, you try to contact him for the silliest reason.
8. You go back to the happy times
For you, he is the most important milestone of your life. What better to celebrate your life than reminiscing about the happy times you have had- the cuddles, quickies, the stares, you go back to every happy time.
9. You have a hard time coming in terms with rejection
You cannot still come to terms why he broke up with you. You question yourself all the time. Your ex is such a sensitive topic for you that your parents and friends hesitate to bring his name or an instance pertaining to him in front of him.
10. No future plans
You do not know what lies ahead of your future. You just cannot see yourself kissing another man or walking the aisle for another person.
11. You still talk about him
He invariably is a part of your conversation. He is not anymore present in your life. But you keep bringing him back his context in your conversations with your friends.
12. You stay in contact with his friends and family
You cannot get over the fact that he has moved on from you. So, you try and invent ways to keep tabs on him. It kills you to not know what he is doing at present. You are still in contact with his best friend or sister to get scoops from his life. You want to know, “Does he miss me”. You want to the new girl who he is dating. You try to gauge how serious they are.
13. You still have hope
The most obvious sign that you still are not over your ex, is that you still have hope of patching up with your ex.
14. Having doubts about you
You still have not recuperated from your bitter break up. It has taken a toll on your confidence that you fear if you can do something perfectly.
15. You do not date at all
He is so deeply invaded your blood that you do find anybody dateable at all. No matter if the guy looks like Ryan Reynolds, has money worth Mark Zuckerberg, or has the heart of James Harrison nobody is good enough for you to date.
Breakups are messy and moving on is difficult. But life goes on. Try to move on from the one that got away. Because the best is awaiting you.
