We all have our own thoughts about our ex. Sometimes we say them to other people, and, usually, we don’t, but the following people made it very clear how they feel about their ex or what they are thinking about their ex through the following funny quotes on social media. And, I think anyone with an ex will be able to relate to them!
1. You Never Forget The Smell Of An Ex
You never forget the way your ex smelled. Just one whiff of their perfume or cologne can send your head turning to see if they are around, and, usually, the person wearing their smell is instantly seen in the same light your ex is in your eyes.
By the way, this is why it is a good idea to wear a unique scent when you are trying to pick up someone. If you smell like their ex, you might as well stop trying before you start!
2. Drinking When Your Ex Is Still On Your Mind Is Not A Good Idea – Ever!
We all think that a few drinks will help us feel better about our breakup and forget about our ex, but it doesn’t work like that. If you still have feelings for your ex, or think about them in any way, there is a good chance you are going to drunk dial them after one drink too many!
It’s just better to leave your phone at home, so you don’t do something stupid. It doesn’t matter if you hate your ex or want your ex back. You may think you will be able to handle it, but a drunk brain will always choose to make bad decisions, and you will regret it so much the next day!
3. We All Stalk Our Ex Thanks To Social Media
It doesn’t matter if you block them on your favorite social media profile because they are everywhere online, and once you get the urge to see what they are doing, you will try LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, and all those other places you know that they are on.
If you would rather not know what your ex is doing, and they are everywhere online, get offline! Keep busy doing offline things that help you move passed that ‘what is my ex doing?’ feeling and into ‘where is my next date at?’ feeling.
4. What Has Our Ex Done To Us?
We will never know exactly what our ex said or did after we broke up with them. Yes, we may be able to see the physical damage they did to our car or furniture. Our friends may tell us how badly they are talking about us. And, we may see their new boyfriend or girlfriend through social media. But, what do they do when they are alone and angry and feel like taking revenge on us?
Is the reason we are experiencing crazy things because of them or is it just a coincidence? Did they steal our car, talk bad about us to our boss, or throw that garbage into our yard (yes, this all happened to me after a breakup). We may never know!
5. What Did We Find Attractive About The Ex Again?
When you think about your ex, do you picture how they looked, how they acted, or how you felt about them in the end? For most people, the passionate feelings we have or had are what we focus on.
It’s funny how in the beginning, you can’t get that person out of your mind. Their face, body, and the particulars about them, such as their eyes or hair, stand out like a sore thumb – and you like the way they look. But, after a breakup, there is so much emotion involved, that we get blinded by our feelings towards them and can no longer see those physical things we once cherished in our mind, and often they become really ugly or just disappear physically in our mind.
6. We Don’t Want To Know What Our Ex Is Doing From You (We Will Stalk Them If We Do)
This is probably one of the funny quotes that everyone has thought in one way or another. It’s funny how everyone else wants to tell us how good or bad our ex is doing. We don’t want to know anything from someone who actually saw our ex. We want to move on and not think about them anymore because they are not a part of our life anymore! Why does everyone insist on telling us everything about our ex and drudging up those old feelings that we worked so hard to get over? We can do that ourselves if we want through social media!
The best thing to do is to tell your friends that you just don’t want to know if they run into your ex. You’re working hard on getting over your ex, and you’d rather focus on your current life instead of your past. If they can’t respect that, then break up with your friends!
7. It’s Hard To Get Over Being Dumped And Do The Right Thing
When it comes to funny quotes about the ex, this hits home! It’s hard to be good after you get dumped. It’s hard to talk good about them and not show off their ugly side and not make fun of them or paint them in a light that they don’t want to be painted in.
Trust me, it’s important to keep your cool and not show everyone their naked pictures. Regret will creep in one day, and after you have made them suffer or feel bad, you will start to suffer for what you did. Deal with the pain and leave them alone. It always works out much better in the end.
8. Trying To Impress The Ex?
Talk about funny quotes about the ex that we can all relate to. Well, maybe they all don’t live down the road, but we always run the risk of seeing them when we go out.
In the beginning, we do our best to impress the person we like. Then we start acting like we do with our best friends and wear our sweats and spend much less time in front of the mirror. But, after a breakup, we want to make sure that we look even better than we did when they first met us. Everything needs to be perfect because we want them to feel the pain of losing someone as hot as us.
But, what if there was no chance of running into them? Wouldn’t that be awesome?
9. What Was Wrong With Our Picker?
We picked that person that is now our ex. We actually thought they were great and had a lot of potential, and we thought that we were going to spend the rest of our lives with them! What was wrong with our picker? Was it on vacation when we met them?
The truth is that people’s true colors don’t come out until after we are hooked. They are on their best behavior, and we can’t see that they are liars or cheaters or just bad people in general. And, maybe the next point has a lot to do with it too.
10. Those Little Signs Went Unnoticed
My friend who runs a relationship blog read this and thought it was the most relatable of these funny quotes. Why? Because people on his blog want to hear about whether or not they are an astrological match with someone rather than how to spot red flags in someone.
In short, many people are more interested in things that don’t really matter and miss the things that do. And sometimes, the things that matter are huge and obvious!
For instance, one of my friends actually got into a relationship with a guy that was clearly on drugs. The signs were there, we all saw them, but she was so worried about whether or not they were a match when it came to hobbies and other ridiculous things that she never actually stopped to see that he was acting shady and obviously something was wrong. In hindsight, she could see the warning signs, but when you are focused on things that don’t really matter, you can’t see those warnings signs that are shining brightly in your face.
11. Your Ex’s New Lovers Will Stalk You!
Not only do you want to look your best in case you run into your ex, but you need to know that if your ex’s current lover finds out about you, they are going to look you up to compare. And if they are really vindictive, they are going to try to make you look worse in their new lover’s eyes in some way.
That’s why you need to take social media seriously. Tighten up your profiles. Don’t post things you don’t other people to know. And always remember that your shares, posts, likes, etc. are probably being seen by people who don’t have your best interest in mind.
12. Another Good Reason To Get Off Facebook?
There are many reasons I can think of to get off Facebook, but this is definitely one of them! If you are friends with your ex or any of their friends, and they become friends with your ex’s new lover or – worse, with the person they cheated on you with, and then you are going to experience this one day.
This is included as one of the funny quotes about the ex, but in reality, this is going to hurt when it happens! It can easily bring up past anger and get you back into a state that you were in shortly after the breakup, which is not somewhere you want to be!
13. Nobody Can Tell You How Long It Should Take You To Get Over Your Ex
Yes, this guy has two funny quotes on the ex in this article, but I laughed out loud when I read this one because it is so true! Our friends are so quick to judge us as taking too long to get over our ex, but the truth is that we all deal with the breakup in a different way.
Of course, if you keep talking about your ex and wearing their clothes around your place, or do other things like go to the same hangouts you used to spend time in, then you ARE going to have a lot harder time getting over your ex. If you can’t get over your ex, then I would take a hard look at how much you are making them a part of your current life and change up a few things, so they become a part of your past instead of your present.
14. We Can Have Warped Views Of Our Ex
Sometimes, our minds can play tricks on us. We remember our ex as someone much better than they were, and because of that, it affects our ability to pick a new partner or even move on. I love this quote from Jennifer Hall because it represents that moment that we become clear on who our ex really was.
Always remember, your ex is an ex for a reason. Things were going wrong. You were not in a healthy relationship. And, being together would have been much more painful than being apart. You don’t need to hate your ex, but you do need to recognize why the relationship ended up in a breakup, and that’s when you will be able to see more clearly and move on to a better relationship.
