Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift


You’ve had the tear-filled conversation on the phone and you’ve said everything there is to say. Of course you’ll both remain friends, you promise fervently. It’s been a great and beautiful run, and sometimes things just don’t work out.

Cue the onslaught of nostalgia — the memories of those halcyon days with just the two of you. How you rue the state you’re in now!


You’re Still The One by Shania Twain


 After a long, hard, absolutely sh***y day, all you want to do is call your newly-minted ex and lay it all on him. You crave his advice and after hours of debating should you/shouldn’t you, you decide, screw it — you really need him.

You proceed to have a long and fruitful conversation where much is said and felt, and you feel better almost instantly. Then you get off the phone and it hits you — you guys are not together anymore, REMEMBER?!


Words by Boyzone


You surround yourself with your besties, go out for many drinkies, and basically have a good long karaoke session that quickly devolves into heartbreak ballads. You sing yourself to redemption, hogging the mike, and daring anyone to tell you they don’t like your crooning.


When We Were Young by Adele


 You and your ex haven’t spoken for a while now — in fact, you’re strangely estranged. You’re going over your faults and his faults…can you get back together? Are you meant to be? Who the hell even knows anymore. All you want is for him to forgive you…he misses you…right?


You Don’t Own Me by Grace feat G-Eazy


 What’s this you hear about him going on another date? UM WHAT. You’ve been broken up for a hot freakin’ second — so what if it’s ACTUALLY three months. You guys were going out for aaaaaaages.

Eff that. The next thing you know, you’re in your car, head bashing to:

You don’t own me

I’m not just one of your many toys

You don’t own me

Don’t say I can’t go with other boys

You’re going out with a vengeance tonight! *Puts his WhatsApp chat on mute so you don’t feel the need to reply*


Good For You by Selena Gomez


Who dat cutay by the bar? So he reminds you a teeny tiny bit of your ex, but that’s good right: similar looks and whole new person!! Things are about to get frisky. Just don’t call him by your ex’s name and all will be well.

A whole new era is about to begin.
