The Ex.

Salutations folks!

Relationships. Ranks high in the ‘Difficult to understand‘ category, along with Girls and God! And face it. Break-upsย happen all the time; especially so if you are in college, unless obviously, if you were (smart enough to) not (be) in a relationship to start with!

Post separation, it’s very possible that you end up being in many very dicey situations with your ex-gf/bf. In 18 odd years of my life, I’ve seen, heard and read quite lot about various ex-girlfriends and how they handled/tried to handle ( ๐Ÿ˜› ) the situation.

‘The One you’ll mostly get back with’

It’s been a long. mostly happy relationship. But sometimes, you are not in a good environment to be in a relationship. College is one such place. Although people do say it’s where ‘it’ happens for the first ‘real’ time; amidst all the family, academics and other college related activities, there just wasn’t enough time. There were conflicts on opinion. You break up, maybe on a bad note. But inside, both know the break won’t last. You escape each other, not to be noticed by the ‘gossipers’. The ย moment the external weights are lifted, chances are, it will resume, right where it left ๐Ÿ™‚

‘The Awesome One’

It was short, although she was a nice girl. You both instantly connected, which is why you got her in the first place! Even after you’ve broken up, you’re still friends. This is a rare, very rare species of ex, one with whom you can talk about other girls (and won’t get upset!). Heck, she might even give you advice! Which brings us to the reason you broke up; she was more a friend than a girl-friend! Keep it that way, it’s always better to have a great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

‘The Crazy One’

It was a great relationship. It ended. Yet, she still has a weird obsession with you. She still stalks your every move. From your home to the groceries. She monitors your every move on Facebook and Twitter. And ‘Woo hoo‘ for her. FB introduced the ‘See Friendship‘ feature to help herย (and really, many others)ย in her ย stalking spree. She creates trouble and clearly unhappy with you leading a happy, single life.

‘The Green One’

It didn’t last long. It shouldn’t have left any impression on her. Or so you think. Like most, she too, has difficulty in giving you up. You try to move on. But, you keep getting texts, emails, wall posts each time to even think of being friendly with another girl. She has spies and moles everywhere. She will dig out every detail or your life: Your new friends (esp. female ones), your car, the condition of the lettuce you had in your evening salad. Everything. Your only hope for respite is if some meathead gets her off your back! ๐Ÿ˜›

‘The One with a Vengeance’

Beware the wrath of a scorned female. Few other forces are more terrifying and powerful, I hear.ย And a spiteful Ex is one to be feared.ย Cheating on a girl rarely doesn’t any good. Her heart is broken and her foundations shattered. A woman on a mission, she is now; a mission to ruin your life! She spreads (false?) rumours. She loveblocks you and hooks up with your friends (and enemies!); anything to convince your that hell is better. Heck, if you thought Green and Crazy was bad, imagine if both were merged and amplified? Until she gets her point across, ATB, buddy! ๐Ÿ˜€

And of course, most of the time, you will find a mix of all of these, manifested in altered/hidden forms. You just can never be sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I hope that was worth it, either for the info, or for some wry humor! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Im firstly quite surprised you chose to write about relationships! and i hate it!
    about the one who you might get back with, it doesnt matter how long the relationship lasted, actually the duration of the relationship doesnt matter at all. it doesnt signify the intensity of love or respect you held for that person.
    for the awesome one, there really is only a very thin line of best friendship and love between a boy and girl. once that is misunderstood, its almost impossible to go back to being best friends cos there is this underlying emotion that resurface every time you interact with him/her. not emotions of love, but mixed emotions of anxiety, apprehension and anger too!
    I know green is associated with jealousy, but i dont like the way you portray women in that. its a stereotype and unless you havent seen a woman do it, you cant state it or generalize.
    and honestly, i dont understand how people can fall in and out of love. Can someone stop loving someone cos something goes wrong somewhere? so it was never true love that the person held for the other? i dont understand a modern person’s take on relationships. People are successfully complicating it =/

    1. firstly, i write about a lot of topics. nothing should surprise you. its true that time is not a real issue. the thing is, with more time spent in a relationship, the more difficult it is to come out of it and come to terms with it.
      not everyone is like what you stated about love and friendship. there are quite a few who really are like I wrote there. without any apprehension, because they truly know that love was not the intended relationship for both of them.
      same with the jealously one. perhaps you don’t know that such girls do exist. I did not pick on a stereotype. I merely stated a commonly found type.
      As I wrote in the beginning, all the types here are ones I’ve seen and heard. None from my own imagination.
      Some people can let go. It’s not modern. It’s just life.

  2. Nw…. thats wat i call a bold article…!!! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› Thats a gr8 one goin on up there no matter wat swetha says… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
    @swetha: I do understand wat ya mean abt those bein stereotypes…. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ But itz juz that these r wat we come across mostly…. in our lives or our frnd….. accepted, that there’d be a few more categories to be added…… but completely writin off his article ain’t somethin that seems agreeable… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Why is your blog going Pink?! Not good, man, your other-genre-writing is cooler.Good attempt, the Green one is very common. There are a few more categories like “Broker-Girl, but broken-girl” and “That was Boring, GTHOOML” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Blog isn’t going pink dude. Thought this would be something different and current to write on! It it is not all mushy, has some trademark humor in there!
      ‘Broker-Girl, Broken-girl’ i like that ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I just realised how many grammatical errors ive made in that comment there ๐Ÿ˜›
    @srdp : stop dismissing things by saying its ‘modern’ or life! thats the easy way out cos you simply dont reason at all
    @ arun : you seem like a girl with those many smilies! really! no offence meant tho ๐Ÿ˜›
