The 8 Types of Exes Every Girl’s Likely to Have
By Therese Aseoche
Among the long list of labels the generation before us take time to come up with in an effort to “understand” Millennials is that we are “Commitment Phobic.”
Phone apps like Tinder and Grindr exist with the sole purpose of helping us find someone for a mere one- or two-time hook-up. We go through so many dates with different kinds of people in search for the one who would be everything we’ve ever wanted in a life partner. And throughout the process, we’ve walked out on so many lives which we may or may not have regretted doing, the same way that we’ve experienced being walked out on by people we may or may not have imagined we’d ever lose.
Our exes come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and personalities. Which of these types are like yours?
8. The Best Friend
This was your Lover-Turned-Best-Friend who understood you the most. You two felt that your relationship couldn’t go further romantically, but you refuse to stay out of each other’s lives completely. “You can’t be friends with your ex”? You two beg to differ.
7. The Booty Call
No matter how many times your friends tell you to stop calling this ex, you still do because no one can satisfy you like they can.
6. The Houdini
This type took “It’s Over” seriously, disappearing from your life completely. No trace online, no word from common friends. Nothing.
5. The Hulk
They’re more furious than they are bitter over the break up and the events leading up to it. They’re way over you, but that doesn’t mean they’ll stop giving you death glares every time you meet along the hallway or on the street.
4. The Flash
Kasing-bilis ni The Flash kasi kung mag-move on sa iba…
3. The Hopeful
This was the nice ex who’s still nice to you only because they still hope to win you back someday. They know you might never reciprocate their feelings again, but they can wait. Oh, can they wait.
2. The One That Got Away
It was either the wrong place at the right time, or the right place at the wrong time. This is the one you always think about, the one you know, in an alternate universe, you would be with until the end, the one you can never hate because things didn’t work out the way they should have. It’s because of them that you’re jaded about love because you know you’ll never find someone who will make you feel the same way as they once did.
1. The One You Can’t Get Away From
You wish you wouldn’t see them again, but they just happen to be part of your huge barkada that you’re forced to be civil around them. Things get painfully awkward when topics of discussion in your barkada hohols revolve around relationships because it’s difficult to give advice and speak from experience when the person you’ve experienced it with is in the room.
