'Texts From Your Ex' Perfectly Maps Out The Awkward Phases Of Your Breakup

When you get that really weird/annoying/horrible text from your ex, you don't have to just complain about it to your friends. Thanks to a newly-formed Instagram account, "Texts From Your Ex," you can submit that crazy text and broadcast it to the account's nearly 75,000 followers (as of Oct. 1).

We've gone through and found some of the best relatable submissions so far that highlight the awkward trajectory of a breakup:

Phase 1: When you're still confused so you're open to listening to what your ex has to say about the relationship.

Phase 2: When you're starting to get over it, and then your ex starts using totally random things in an effort to get you back.

Phase 3: When you're starting to think you and your ex will actually become friends, and then they go and do something really creepy.

Phase 4: Your ex has gone too far and now you think you'll have to start ignoring them.

Phase 5: But then your ex just can't handle the silent treatment.

Phase 6: When you accidentally call your ex and all the work you've done to get them to move on just goes out the window.

Phase 7: When your ex can't handle the truth about your new life.

Phase 8: When your ex tries to apologize for last night, but you're totally done.

Phase 9: When it's been months since you've spoken and all of a sudden they try to win you back with meatloaf.

Phase 10: When you have to completely cut them off for good.
