YOU’LL MISS HER PRESENCE MORE THAN YOU MISSED CASUAL SEX.
Maybe you let her go because the prospect of hooking up with whoever you wanted was more appealing than the prospect of committing to one person. But once the excitement of reactivating your online dating accounts wears off, you’re going to realize that there’s no one-night stand out there that could compare to the way she made you feel. The comfort you once thought was “boring” will be something you crave, and no matter how many new people wake up in your bed, none of them will ever fill the space she left.
NO ONE WILL LOOK AT YOU THE WAY SHE DID.
Remember the way you’d catch her staring at you like you were a masterpiece in a museum? She thought you were the greatest thing she’d ever seen, and when she looked at you with adoration in her eyes, she wasn’t just admiring your physical features — she was admiring all of you. She saw all of your good and bad qualities mixed together and still thought you were a beautiful human being. You’ll find plenty of women who will look at you, but none of them will ever see you the way she did.
THE THINGS THAT ANNOYED YOU WILL BE THE THINGS YOU LONG FOR.
When you first start to miss her, you might find a silver lining in the fact that you no longer have to deal with all her obnoxious “quirks.” The way she threw her dirty clothes on a chair instead of the hamper, the way she refused to leave the house without doing her eyebrows, the way she talked in her sleep — you thought it would be a relief to get away from it all, but the truth is that you’ll miss those things more than you missed the things that initially attracted you to her.
