We broke up, boo hoo. Breakups happen every day and I’m so over ours. I’ve moved on because I had to and it’s been the best thing I could have ever done for myself. When I’m feeling nostalgic for our relationship I realize it’s not you I’m missing, but who we used to be. I miss being in a relationship, that’s all.
- I miss being a part of a couple. Now that I’m single, I realize it’s not the worst thing in the world. However, I still miss being one of two. I miss having another half. Now I have to be whole on my own and that’s okay, but I still miss being a part of something bigger. It’s not that I want you back, I just want to be with someone again — someone who’s not you.
- I miss not having to be alone. Being alone sucks. Sure, going out with your girls is fun, and embracing the single life can be good for a while, but my end game is still to find a guy I love. That’s the goal here — happily ever after. I haven’t given up and I’m not going back to you, but I have to admit that I miss not feeling so alone.
- I miss believing that I’d found “The One.” I’ve faced the fact that you were definitely not the guy for me but I miss the hope I had that you were. I miss the feeling of possibility in our relationship. I might not want that same possibility of a future with you anymore, but I definitely want to feel it again with someone else.
- I miss my innocence. I used to be able to trust people without much hesitation, but that’s gone. You ruined that for me. Now I’m plagued with the memories of betrayal by the one person I thought would never hurt me. It’s hard to date after a broken heart. I just want to be able to let my guard down but I can’t. I’m still protecting my heart out of the fear of dating another guy like you.
- I miss the person I was when I was with you. Well, at the beginning that is. You used to challenge me and I loved that, but eventually, it just felt like you wanted me to be another version of you instead of my own person. I miss those two kids we used to be, so innocent and in love. Life was simpler back then, and you were better than the man you are now.
- I miss having a boyfriend. I don’t really miss you, I just miss the comfort of having a boyfriend. I miss feeling safe in someone’s arms. I miss having someone to Netflix and actually chill with, to spend my days with and eat my meals with. I miss the romance and I miss love but despite all that, I don’t miss you.
- I miss the person you were when we fell in love. Who you are now is a nightmare. We were just kids when we started dating and as we grew up, I guess we grew apart. It wasn’t just that we were going in different directions, though. You grew into a version of yourself that I didn’t like or even recognize. I loved the person you were, but I hate the person you became.
- I miss seeing the world through rose-colored glasses. I know that things weren’t always great, but when they were, I saw the bright side of everything. I believed that people were truly good, that the universe had our best interests at heart, and everything seemed a bit more bright and hopeful. I still have a bit of that now, but love has a way of highlighting the silver lining and I miss that.
