    – this is my life. I have had two long term serious relationships. The first one – father of my child – i managed to get him to move out of his parents house, made him grow up etc… then he cheated on me, and then married the girl he cheated on me with. So I get to see her all the time – luckily she isn’t a total asshat.
    Ex no2 I spent two years with, helping him do up his flat, helping him with work, everything, then he left because he didn’t want to have children and I did, ONE month later he has a new girlfriend and she is pregnant. She is due in September & they are so happy.
    Fml. And people wonder why I have trust and rejection issues ­čśÉ

    Yes! I finally got together with a guy I’d been in love with for eight years and he just would not give me the ‘girlfriend’ title. I spent Mothers’ Day with his mum, I went to his nephew’s football matches but he kept saying he wasn’t ready to make it official. I met Mike and the rest is history but my ex had a new GIRLFRIEMD a few months later and they have a dog together now, which means it’s serious!

    I feel like Good Luck Chuck constantly. Since about 18, every single guy I’ve ever been with has gone on to meet the one after me. For the most part, I’ve been fine with it. My ex, however, still annoys me. We were together two years, plans for the future and everything, then one day he just dumps me. Turns out he’d be cheating on me and six months later, was engaged to her, my ex best friend. Since then, my luck has changed. I haven’t been seeing as many guys but it’s ended on my terms. Maybe the hyping curse has been broken for me now? I hope so because it’s so bloody hard to watch girls get everything you thought you would’ve!

    This is me all over! I can track back every single person I’ve dated in the last 10 years to have broken up with me (cheated, ghosted, only once did I do the dumping), only for them to head straight on into a long term relationships. I genuinely thought I was a curse but it does make me feel better that other people have experienced the same and I’m not alone.

    Such a great metaphor … But what an annoying reality! x

    My ex husband is someone I hyped for his girlfriend. He is basically doing all the things I said he needed to do (therapy, exercise, moving into the food industry, yada yada) but doing it with her not me, because when he was sad with me he thought I was the problem, then we broke up and he was still really sad and dissatisfied because he needed to change career, get counselling, get out more. And now he is. Without me. I’d like to pretend I am not bitter but sometimes I really, really am.

    Weirdly I don’t think I can fully move on until we no longer have a joint account, or are (legally) married to each other. It is pretty annoying. Oh well. Someone had better be hyping my next person right now and getting them good and ready to be excellent relationship material for me. I have earned it.

    IT makes me sad that this happens. I don’t know if it happened to me at all. As soon as I end it with someone I literally delete them entirely from my life!

    Hahahahahah fantastic post!!!
    I hope I haven’t hyped my ex. I hope he’s still as dull as dishwater and continues to live a dull and boring life. and continues to be short.

    Such a good read! I’ve never heard this term but can totally relate! I’ve hyped a couple of guys since splitting with my long-term ex. How frustrating! Hopefully there’s something being hyped for me haha!

    Love this post! I’ve always thought of it as upgrading, but I didn’t know it was a thing and that it happens to others too. Love the term hyping. I spent 2 years hyping my ex, driving him around for months until he finally passed his test after 4 attempts, and finally started driving at 40, persuading him to get a passport for the first time in 10 years so we could travel, building up his confidence in all sorts of ways, only for him to cheat on me. Major lesson learned there!
