It’s no secret that we’re all a little partial to stalking. From lurking on an ex, old best friend or that cute barista from our fave café, there’s something about stalking that is just so... satisfying. Despite the truth being that more times than not we end up seeing something that instantly makes us regret ever going on a lurking spree in the first place (and you want to delete all your #feels in the process).
But, I tell you what’s worse than lurking on an ex is lurking on your new man’s past relationships. Yep, we’ve all been there. You’ve started talking to this great guy, or you’re in the early stages of dating. You’ve gone onto his Facebook for an innocent glimpse of his cute face, and before you know it your 105 images deep. And then you see her; The Ex.
While truthfully there’s no reason to feel intimidated by his ex at all (we mean, he’s with you now), there’s still a pinch of unnecessary jealousy towards this girl.
Here’s the thoughts you have when you stalk his ex.
1. Aww, he looks so good in that picture.
2. Aww, his dog is so cute.
3. Ok... yet another pic of his car... boring.
4. Omg, so glad he doesn’t have that haircut anymore...
5. He looks so young!
6. Wait, wait, wait... who is that girl?!
7. Maybe she’s his cousin?
8. I mean it’s definitely not his sister...
9. Ok, it has to be his cousin...
10. Maybe she’s just a friend?
11. Ok she’s not in this next picture!
12. Or the next...
13. Phew, maybe she is just a friend.
14. I mean not that it matters.
15. But then it kinda does...
16. WAIT SHE’S IN THIS PICTURE TOO!
17. WHO IS SHE!
18. Ok... clicking on the comments.
19. DO NOT LIKE ANYTHING!
20. Ok... I can’t see any signs of relationship...
21. BUT SHE’S IN THIS NEXT PICTURE TOO!

29. Ok, she’s in a relationship now. Nothing to worry about...
30. But they were together...
31. I wonder how long and how serious they were?!
32. And she’s such a babe!
33. Ok, why is my heart racing?
34. He’s still friends with her!!
35. What if he still likes her?
36. I mean, it’s been 5 years since they’ve been together... but still!
37. Omg, why am I feeling so hurt? I mean of course he’s had ex-girlfriends, it’s normal!
38. And why am I feeling so weirdly annoyed at him...?
39. I mean we’re together now. CALM DOWN!
40. But she’s so pretty...
41. *clicks back on his profile*.
42. Take deep breaths... they’re over for a reason.
