You got: You Are "Every Breath You Take"

You are obviously having trouble moving on after a breakup. And that's okay! You missing the cuddles, the brunches, and the pottery classes. But chin up! You're moments away from meeting someone better than Belinda or Jesse. So stop hiding in their courtyards and analyzing what they're eating for dinner for clues that they still love you.
