Some I think about here and there, I tend to look back on then from time to time, mostly because I've learned a lot, and have grown up.

Is it normal? I still have feelings for one but it's been so many years.

Considering that my ex is still my best friend who I talk to nearly every day , then yes, I do.

You mean What's-Her-Face, That One Girl, and the Chick with the Pierced Thing?

Not since high school, no.

Is it normal? Certainly. However, to have feelings for one may be an issue. You may want to remind yourself why you aren't together anymore. There is likely a reason.

I have been married for over a decade and I still think of my exes on occasion. Mostly, I just wonder what happened to them (if I have lost contact, as with most), or ponder what roads life may have offered had they been taken. Occasionally I will think of one in ways that remind me why I was with them at the time, but never do I actually wish I was with them instead of with my wife.

Not actively, but I am on speaking terms with all of them.

I only think of 1, a lot. But we still talk and hang out so that's probably why. The rest not so much.

I do, but not because I miss them or anything.

The only 'real' ex I have (we dated for 7 months early in highschool before I started dating my current boyfriend, who I've been with since) is now a weird hipster street performer so I see/hear about him on social media occasionally. We haven't spoken in years and I don't plan on changing that.

Anything you've ever stuck your dong into is going to pop into your head from time to time.

@Chemistian: I do remember a lot of the bad times, but I've had feelings for her for years, and still do. She treated me well in fact she was probably the first woman I truly fell in love with I was 22 I just had a difficult time opening up and college life became stressful. We split and went are own ways, and years later I explained it all but she is seeing someone.

It's odd out of the 5 girlfriends I have had, 4 of them are still on my Facebook friends. My one ex was just a bitch I dated her for her looks and couldn't stand her once I knew her personally. Lesson learned.

Considering I'm marrying the only girl I've ever been interested in, no =)

As for the "Is it normal?" question...just because they're exes, doesn't mean they aren't/weren't part of your life at a point so you have memories of them that resurface (probably at specific times), that's how memories work, no need to over-analyze =)

@elkoldo: Aww, no need. I'm stubborn, have a bad temper, I'm a perfectionist (it's NOT a quality, no matter what they tell you =P), stubborn (I know...it was on purpose for emphasis) and I can barely speak the language of the country I live in XD

Sure, in the same way I think about old friends and generally older periods of my life.

Yes but I know I would never go back to them from who I am with now. Although I do fantasise about us all being together in a bed in one mad session, or having them all fight to the death over me, naked in a gladiator arena, and make love to the winner over the corpses of the fallen.

I think of them in an inactive sense. I do not day dream of them but I simply have aspects of life that remind me of them. Some of them became a large part of my life for a time and for better or worse I simply cannot wish them away. I get along with them all well these days but that does not mean I communicate with them, speak much about them, or wish to date them once again.

Life has taken me down a good road with my fiance and though I have a different life now with someone else I am not one that desires to forget the past.

Yes it's normal. Perhaps if you have feelings for her after all these years, you need to sit back and fully analyze the situation. I've been that way throughout parts of my life, but I understand why my relationships didn't work, and I am comfortable and at peace with it. I remember the good and the bad times and as much as I want to remember the awesome times, you really have to realize the bad parts of your relationship.

I guess over the years I've learned, just because you love someone doesn't mean you should be together or are meant to be together forever. I hate to say it but love in the real world is nothing like it is in the movies. Move on. Let go.

I think of all the women I crossed paths with in my life whom I probably could've had long term relationships with, but allowed to slip away. None of them are ex's though....

I do, and I can't seem to stop as I still love her. It's so hard to be her friend because every time I talk with her I want to be with her and not be seperated by just being "friends". In my world, you can't be friends with a girl, you either like her and want to date or you don't talk with them and stick to your guy friends for friends. I'm thinking about ending our so called friendship cause it causes more pain to me to continue it. Although they do say sometimes your best friend could make the best husband/wife. So idk what I should do.
