+147 Getting over an ex is easier and more permanent than getting over a crush you never got a chance to be with, amirite?

Sorry to break your bladder but I'm pretty sure that's not the case

Is for me

I disagree as well. No emotional bond is usually developed with people we never date, thus there's really nothing to get over.

Have you ever been in a long-term relationship?

I'm not the greatest expert, but I'm pretty sure a divorce caused more pain to an individual than their high school crush saying no.

How old are you and what's the longest relationship you've had….?

We should start a betting pool. I'll take their longest relationship being 3 weeks.

Crushes come and go. Exes rip your heart out, stomp on it, and can leave you with scars for life.

Or cats. I'm still working through accepting divorce, but it's harder tan it would be because she kept the cats.

My best friend was in two long term relationships in the last 7 years. In the first one they got a couple cats that everyone absolutely loved. he didnt keep them after the breakup. did it again in the next relationship, also lost them in the breakup. At this point I dont know how he gets up in the morning.

They leave you with trauma and trust issues.

I'm pretty sure that's not the case, you forget your crushes but when you've really had an ex that held signifance in your life. You will always think of them here and there regardless what kind of emotion you hold for them

OP must be young or never been in a long-term relationship. I can't even remember all my crushes from high school.

I've had plenty of crushes with never a chance with but apparently OP has never been crushed by an ex.

Haven't had your heart broken yet, have you?

Interesting, I disagree.

I think it depends on the level of crush. I don't think of any of my exes other than one that has become a great friend. I have a couple old crushes that I still think about. So maybe not easier but I can definitely get behind the "more permanent" part.

Idk man, it depends on the reasons for the break up.

Unless you're a stalker nah ….

Got dumped by my first girlfriend after two years together in February. Lemme tell you, that's nonsense lol. I understand your argument, but even now the scars still haven't fully healed. Exes will do a number on your entire mental and emotional state

by Anonymous 4 months ago

I never had an ex before but I can't say anything about it but what I can say is that having a crush that you had a chance with but messing it up hurts way harder than one you never had a chance with .

by Anonymous 4 months ago

Nope. Definitely the other way around. But maybe you meant something else in terms of the contrast between those two and just worded this out poorly.

Is today opposite day?

by Anonymous 4 months ago

Different feelings but in a way yes

by Anonymous 4 months ago

definitely some truth to that... I can think of one girl in particular, I was straight obsessed with her. we fooled around a little never got to bang her though and it haunts to do this day 17 years later. my 2 failed past relationships don't phase me at all in retrospect.

by Anonymous 4 months ago

I dunno I don't think of my exes much, but will still think of some old crushes

by Anonymous 4 months ago

This is really not my case tho.

by Anonymous 4 months ago

Hard disagree. I've had plenty of crushes throughout the years, got over all of them fine. But breaking up with the woman I was in love with sent me into a years long downward spiral of emotions resulting in a seemingly permanent inability to confidently seek out a relationship.

Says who? It's quite the opposite for most.

Bro is like 14 and is deep

In my experience, getting together with the crush is never as good as you imagine it will be. Pretty much resulting in the loss of the crush. The crush is so much more fun and frustrating. It depends on what caused the ex to become an ex. Getting over a toxic relationship is pretty easy I would imagine...I don't really have experience in this though.
