That’s when you know he cares. He cares because he lost you over one stupid little thing. Not all guys are the same, some are douches & won’t give a single fuck if he just got dumped. But when a guy cries over you, over your relationship ending.. you have a keeper.. so don’t fuck it up even more. Take the opportunity & show him that you care too. It’s not always the guys who fucks up, it’s the girls also.
To me, if an ex is able to stay friends with you after a breakup, it tells you that when you guys were together, they actually liked you for you, and that being with you was just a way to get to know you better. They’re a keeper if they can look past the awkwardness of the fact you guys had a thing, and be friends just like before.
“You know, those first couple weeks after you left, I thought my world was flipped upside down. I felt free, something I hadn’t felt in awhile, and I took that as a bad thing. Who am I going to text all night long until one of us falls asleep? How am I going to function without you there? During those couple weeks I had to think, time to reflect, and time to learn from my obvious mistake. Do you know what I realized? You aren’t my everything. You never really were. Sure, nine months is a long time to be with someone, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to fall apart without you. The beginning was rough, yes, but I moved on. I grew up, and you, well, you’re still the same. I hope she gets out before there’s no turning back.”—
“If someone comes into your life and becomes a part of you, but for some reason he couldn’t stay, don’t cry too much, just be glad that your paths crossed and somehow he made you happy even for a while.”—
“You learn a lot when you go to college. You learn that pulling an all-nighter means staying up all night to study for a test you will then sleep through. You learn to appreciate the taste of beer- the cheapest of all alcoholic beverages. You learn that you can roll out of bed 10 minutes before class and go to class looking like shit-and no one will notice or care. You learn you really can do things for yourself without your parents looking over your shoulder—but you also learn you never realized how nice it was to have them there, just in case. More than anything, however, you learn how much your friends really mean to you. College friends come to mean a lot to you, but they can never compare to your friends from home. Your friends from home teach you the meaning of friendship during your college years. Because you are apart from them you tend to express your feelings more —- you learn how much these people truly affect your life.”—(via thelovewhisperer)
