is it me or does your ex just get more attractive after you break up?

    i can't be the only one that feels that way, right? i mean, it doesn't help i see mine every day, but just seeing pictures she's tagged in on my facebook feed is kind of depressing.

    am i alone in this?

    That happened to me once. She was... ok... and then got HOT!!! I was a little pissed. She was British too!

    Ended up marrying a woman hotter than her, so no big deal. ;)

    Not for me. My ex has become very unappealing to me since we've broken up. Though us growing apart was a factor in our breaking up.

    My ex-wife got more UNattractive after we split up. It's at the point now that I don't know what I ever saw in her... Oh yeah, she had big boobs. I wish I had realized back then that there's more to a woman than her chest...

    hmmm, well one ex of mine did seem to get uglier to me after we broke up and now that were friends, I dont ever see myself getting back with that.

    Another ex, however still looks attractive but she was just a drag so I know that I would not want to be with that again

    Forbidden fruit smells the sweetest, man. If you can't deal with it, sever. No need for you to follow her on facebook. You broke up for a reason.

    You'll think she's hot at first. Then you'll remember why you broke up with her. Then you'll leave her alone for the rest of your life. Speaking from experience dude.

    DOTM Carly came to mind. :lol

    Nah, I agree....now that you guys broke up your ex DOES look hotter :p 

    Seriously though, often when you aren't involved romanicaly anymore all the crap that caused you to break up tends to fade and it's the good times that brought you together...that can make the ex seem hotter. Or it can go the other way and the ex just gets uglier :p

    Ehh, I wouldn't say the last chick I was with got hotter, looks the same really. I think it's the phenomenon of not getting laid in a while that makes you think, "She was a cunt, but damn I wouldn't mind hittin that again." That's pretty much where the "she got hotter" mindset stems from...lack of getting laid. XD

    Seeing as you're in high school and come to GD for girl advice, you have no room to speak here.

    I'm going through the same thing, but I'm keeping my ex in the subfriend zone. She's not a bad person perse, just had bad qualities.

    I think your perspective might be influenced by who was the one that broke it off. Still/More attractive = them. Uglier = you. I know that's the case with me.

    Yeah, you'll remember the good times and want those TIMES back every now and then, but then you'll remember "exs are exs for a reason".

    In my case, I'd say it was just you. In fact, I wonder what I ever saw in mine.

    If you think it's bad that your ex gets more attractive, how do you feel when she finds herself a new fella?

    My ex-wife lost about 20 lbs really fast after we broke up. Then when she got a boyfriend she gained about 50 so I win.
