7 Types of Exes You'll Have in Your Life
  • The psycho

    He calls you from time to time wanting to get back together. You’ve told him that you two are better off living separate lives, but he’s just not getting the hint. Sometimes, he would send you text messages at 3:00 a.m., visit you at work, or worse, stalk you.

    The forgotten one


    You two dated for a while but there was really no spark between you two–you can’t even remember his name or what he looks like.

    The guy you’re better off being friends with


    You two started off as friends and developed feelings at some point. The problem is, the more you got to know him, the more you wanted him to remain your friend instead of being your boyfriend. He’s fun, protective, and easy to be with–but you’d rather save the friendship than spend forever with him.

    The one you made a promise to marry to by the time you reach a certain age


    A friend you can rely on every d*mn time. Sharon Cuneta and Aga Muhlach’s movie, Kung Ako Na Lang Sana, is the perfect example. As long as you're both single, the offer still stands.

    The one you’ll never seem to get over

    This guy would always be the standard for your future boyfriends. Sometimes, you catch yourself thinking about him when you’re supposed to be getting over him. He seemed to be the perfect guy, but things between you two just didn't work so you decided to part ways.

    The guy your family misses


    Your family likes him so much that your mom, dad, and younger siblings keep asking what *insert his name here* has been up to. They always ask you how he is and when he’ll be visiting you so they could hang out again.

    The one that got away


    It was the perfect love story until something or someone got in the way between you two–it could be your parents, pride, or a simple misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion. He’s the guy you wish you had another chance with and given that opportunity, you’ll try your best to make everything work with.
