What's the dominating emotion. Relief? Sadness? Guilt?
Personally, I feel like sh*t.
Know people who don't really get affected.
Also, how did your exes usually take it?

I've only really had one "ex." The thing is, before we were a couple, she was one of my best friends. It happened that she realized she loved her best friend of several years. He was a guy who moved to Europe some time ago and when he came back from a visit she finally admitted she liked him as more than a friend. The weird part was, I felt a little ecstatic when I heard she'd fallen for him. I suppose part of that was due to the fact that if we'd not been a couple, I'd have been shipping them since day one. That and the fact that she always claimed he was like a brother to her. Anyway, the point was, that when breaking up, I was really just happy for her. I always loved her and genuinely wanted what was best for her. It wasn't some super difficult thing letting her go be with the man she loved, it was simply that I wanted her to be happy. I've never harbored an ill will towards her and she's still one of my best friends. I don't see any reason why a friendship should end simply because you are no longer that person's "best friend" or you're no longer their SO. It seems like a waste of what should be a perfectly good friendship.2

I handle my breakups differently. I tend to question the whole situation like did that person ever care, I talk to myself to dissect the situation, I overthink and it'll happen often till I finally get over it. It depends on the bond that I had with that person because if we were close deeply then it'll hit me terribly. I tend to get over things once someone new comes along but the past hurt is still there. It's weird, but I don't feel down or anything I just feel if the person didn't care so much within the situation then I'll be the first to leave before they leave me. It's like: "I don't care." The only thing I regret is because he has my grad pictures in a mail I sent him and I still wonder what did he do with those.. probably burnt them.1
