Why did it hurt so much seeing him on the dating app?

Anonymous
A guy I dated for 6 months (we broke up almost 4 months ago) just popped up while I was on a dating app.

We met through this app and I had deleted our match from my account when I reinstalled it to my phone.

He still popped up and it was like a sucker-punch to my heart. I was in love with him and I thought I was doing better by putting myself out there, but now I just feel like shit.
