Boyfriends come like purses—they are different sizes, shapes and colors. Some of them are cheap. Some of them are bright and flashy, while others are dull and boring. Whatever style your ex may be, there are certain styles of ex-boyfriends that every girl has stored in the back of her closet.
1.) The One that Got Away.
This is the ex that you fantasize about. He is the guy that you envisioned a future with, but something along the way went wrong and you regret not being able to make it work with him. It’s important to remember that all things happen for a reason, and that even this guy is an ex for a reason.
2.) The Commitment Phobe.
This ex is a guy who doesn’t want marriage, doesn’t want kids. He doesn’t even want to hold hands in public. Even though you tried to wait patiently for this ex to commit to you, in the end you just ended up wasting your time.
3.) The Ex Who Just Won’t Grow Up.
This ex is the proverbial Peter Pan. He doesn’t hold a steady job. He stays with his mother. He doesn’t have any ambitions—and guess what he never will.
4.) The Casanova.
This ex was the ex that would literally flirt with everything in a skirt. He loved you—loving you wasn’t the issue. The problem was that he also loved Ashley, Leslie, Marie and Jessica too. This heartbreaker left you with feelings of distrust and an overall wariness towards the opposite sex. He’s one that you won’t soon forget, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
5.) The Ex Who is Now a Friend.
This relationship may have been lacking sparks or maybe you and your ex have an understanding, or maybe enough time has passed where all the old wounds have healed. Whatever it is, this ex is by far the best type of ex to have.
