During this stage, you become convinced that your former significant other will see the error of their ways and call you begging to be forgiven. There is a lot of staring at your phone during this phase.
This is easily the most embarrassing stage, as it can involve any number of humiliating things, such as begging your ex to come back, trying to win them over through compromise, or weirdly following them around.
This is the lengthiest stage - or at least sometimes it feels that way. This involves the general malaise that follows you in your daily routine, as well as your inability to be productive – or even sit in a car seat properly.
