It might take months, weeks, and even years, but eventually we all move on with our lives after a breakup. We go through emotional hell and often feel damaged to the point where we doubt we’ll ever be loved again. But then the realization hits that you’re better off without him and suddenly you’re on top of the grave you dug yourself out of and you’re better than you’ve ever been!
And right when you think you’re over him, you get the “Hey” text. That, my friends, is when our heart sinks and every emotion possible comes out.
Here is my list of the many emotions of that damn “Hey” text:
1. “What Does He Want?”
After ripping out my damn heart and throwing in the ocean to drown, now he has the audacity to text me!? This better be good.
2. “Gotta Tell The Girls”/”Look What Happened”
This is a key thought and if you don’t send a screenshot to your girl, or text her about him, then it’s not that serious. But if it goes in a group chat… Get ready for the pig roast… Literally.
3. “Does He Want To Get Back Together?”
I’m not proud to admit it, but this thought does come into my head for a brief moment, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks about it. It’s suspicious whenever they send us a text randomly.
4. “Does He Want To Apologize?”
He better apologize, dammit! After all he put me through!? Let’s be honest, he probably won’t but it would be greatly appreciated.
5. “Maybe He’s Changed”
Hopefully he’s changed, but I doubt it. I always hold onto that little hope that he’s seen the light and decided to change for the better, but does any guy ever truly change? Very rarely.
6. “Where Is He Going With This Painful Small Talk?”
Please, continue to ask me how work is going and how my friends are. I know you don’t genuinely care. Spill the beans, what do you want? Don’t drag this on for any longer.
7. “Maybe He Actually Wants To Be Friends?
Well, he did say he wanted to be friends. Maybe he’s making the effort to do that?
8. “He Definitely Wants A Hookup”
Damn straight you want another piece of this, pervert.
9. “Yeah, You Miss Me”
Another personal favorite text to receive is, “I miss you.” Well no duh, I’m awesome and you lost your opportunity to have a great girl. What isn’t there to miss?
10. “But What Does He Want!?”
Dude, we’ve been texting for like an hour now, WHY ARE YOU TEXTING ME!?
Now gentlemen, don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind talking to you! Heck if I didn’t I wouldn’t be responding to you in the first place. However, don’t expect me to always be the nicest I could possibly be after you’ve done something to hurt me. I just want to hear what you have to say. But thank you for confusing the heck out of me and all the other girls you do the same thing to.
