    If a recent ex (wife, girlfriend, etc.) moved on in life, which scenario would secretly sting more?

    A. She has become far more independent and successful than she ever was when you were together

    or

    B. She is now insanely happy and in love with someone who absolutely adores her


    My friend said A because it would show she really doesn't need someone to be happy and can get along just fine without you.

    I said in most cases it would be B because it would be an ego blow.

    I know there are many variables that figure into this, so try to consider this using an ex who you did not utterly despise by the end of the relationship .

    I am goin to answer this as a female. If have broken up with someone I was in love with and it was amicable, he now has a hot gf who is amazing and he is very happy with... and I am couldnt be happier that he is truly happy. I have my other ex who was my first love and truly fucked me over and I wish him no happiness, I hope he is miserable, that the bitch stops sucking his dick and that her pussy gets a funky smell

    I have utterly despised all of them. I shouldn't play this game. Sorry Tigger.

    If someone was terrible to me at the end, I am not going to wish them happiness.. they can go fuck themselves and I hope karma catches up!!

    But have also had enough amicable break ups where I really do hope they are happy!

    For younger guys, it's probably mostly B. For older guys (who have a conscience), I would think it's A, but perhaps not for the same reason you think. I would feel badly that maybe it was me that was holding her back, and I would hope for their happiness post-me.
