You don't miss your ex, you miss the feeling of being the hopeless romantic who believed that the world was always meant to be nice and endearing.

In your mind, you think that you can’t bear life without having him by your side. In your mind, he was your world, and when he left, it’s as if darkness consumed your entire existence. You think that you miss the warmth of his embrace during those cold nights. You think that you miss the way you looked at each other on bright sunny days. You think that you miss the fullness of his lips whenever you kissed.

You have to realize that you really don’t miss him. You only miss the thought of him. You only miss the feeling of being in love. You only miss the feeling of being loved by someone.

You don’t necessarily miss his arms, you just miss the thought of being caught in someone’s embrace. You don’t necessarily miss his eyes, you just miss having someone look at you as if you’re the most important person in the world. You don’t necessarily miss his lips, you just miss the passion and love of a sultry kiss. You miss the security of being in a relationship. You miss the joy of being in a passionate union with someone else. You miss the bliss of believing in a love that could last forever. You miss the endless possibilities of having the kind of love that would never ever disappoint you. You definitely miss the ignorant happiness of a world that belonged entirely to yourself; one that you think you could always control; one that you think would never betray you.

You miss the feeling of being the hopeless romantic who believed that the world was always meant to be nice and endearing. You miss the thought of being given the love that you thought you deserved. Now that you’re stuck on the ground floor, you miss the feeling of being on the roof deck admiring the immense beauty of city lights.

You miss the innocence of new romance. You miss the pure and unadulterated essence of early romantic entanglements. You miss the butterflies in your tummy whenever you saw him around. You miss the subtle palpitations of your heart whenever he spoke sweet nothings to you. You miss the shiver down your spine for the times he whispered in your ear. You miss the tingles all over your body when he used to kiss your neck with such grace and gentleness. You miss the things that he did to you that you will never forget. However, it must be made clear that you only miss those aspects of the relationship. You don’t miss him as a person at all. - Continue reading on the next page
