I Dont Miss My Ex, I Miss What We Had

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 85 People

    I miss our bond our connection the way he's the

    only man that I felt 100 percent with. It's going to take a long time to get over losing my best friend. I don't miss him or his terrible actions but I miss having him around or just being on the other line. So I just tell myself there's something better waiting when I'm ready...

    Nope, Don't Miss Him.

    I do NOT miss my Ex. I thought I would, after 3 years of being in a relationship I really thought I would miss him, but I don't. I was always so afraid to leave him even though he was an *** because I didn't want to be alone and I thought I loved him. I wanted to post this...

    Friendship

    Of all the things I lost, the friendship I had with my ex was, by far, the most precious thing I lost in life. Actually, I think destroyed would be a better word to describe what happened. I miss being able to talk freely and openly with her. She'd listen to what I have to say...

    Good While It Lasted.

    As much as he made me smile, he was not the one. It took me forever to realise that he is not perfect, that he is not 'the one' because he makes me feel worse rather than better about myself. It was always about competition when we were together, and even when we were only...

    Don't Miss The Ex...but Miss The Future We Were Planning

    I really don't miss my ex. We were together for almost 4 years.  I thought I would but I grew up and he didn't. I am not in love with the person he is but only the person he was. Even pictures I have of him don't hurt any more. I am now dating a great guy but I ...

    Good Times

    It's not my ex boyfriend. It's my ex best friend. We've been each other's best friends for almost 4 years. And I moved away from her about a year ago. Last time we met everything changed. Her sister was getting married. Her cousins from America were there. The whole family was...

    Brandon..Come Back

    He held me like no other, With hands so soft and smooth And a scent, fresh, like morning dew. In his arms my pain did die Replaced with a steady calm, My heart beating slowly with his, Beating as one. A kiss of passion, Freed my mind No longer bound to guilt or shame Or petty...

    I was married 28 yrs

    and divorced. I can relate... You don't really miss the but rather the familiarity... That's hard to lose and takes YEARS to regain in someone new.

    HUH Miss the Ex !!

    I do not miss her for she needs help finding herself. What I do miss is the family get togethers. And the closeness.  She has a new beau. And wants no parts of me. I think she would like to see me dead...... Anything is possible...

    Like To Have It Again

    When I first got married, and for quite a number of years after, my ex-wife and I had great sex. We went to movies together, to the zoo, museums, concerts, lots of things. I miss doing those things with a woman. I hope to regain that one day soon.

    I Don't Miss Him, I Miss Me and My Self-respect

    There's no reason I should miss him.  He was a total a**.  Many people tell me he cheated on me.  In my heart I know it's not true, it would've been easier if it was.  Still, he did a lot of bad things. First off, it was very important for me to be a virgin...
