Sometimes it's easy for us to mis-remember a past romance (especially when we're single and alone on a Friday night) and end up convincing ourselves that it wasn't as bad as it really was.
But before you blame yourself for the breakup or stalk your ex on Facebook, we advise you to check out these (pretty darned cute) animal gifs that may help remind you exactly why that old flame just wasn't The One.
1. It was like they were allergic to affection.
2. It always felt like you were doing ALL the work to keep the love alive.
3. Yeah, they were cute, but still trying to figure out their identity.
4. You couldn’t go anywhere without their crew tagging along.
5. They weren’t very considerate.
6. That one time you begged them to go to a costume party with you, and the whole night they were like...
7. You don’t know how, but they always managed to sleep through your weekend plans.
8. They spent all their money on stuff that they didn't share with you.
9. If you wanted attention, they were too busy. But when THEY wanted attention...
10. You had to walk on eggshells around them.
11. They were always flirting with danger.
12. They couldn’t figure out how to get their act together.

13. Honestly? They were just really annoying.
Aaaaaaand that's why you're way better off without them.
