ex girlfriend

If you have been the recent victim of a breakup, you might be wondering if your ex misses you. Asking yourself, “does my ex miss me?” is often a sign that you aren’t completely over it. There are 7 key ways to tell if your ex misses you – and if you have a chance of ever getting back together.

1) They still contact you

If your ex repeatedly still has contact with you via phone, text, email, or other ways, they are still wanting you. If they had truly moved on in life, they wouldn’t still be thinking about you and wanting to get back together. If you notice repeated texts asking how you are, or what you are up to, from your ex, then chances are they still miss you.

2) Immediate responses to your emails

If you email, phone, or text your ex and they write back right away, chances are that they are missing you just as much as you are missing them. If not, why would they take the time to write back so quickly? They are obviously waiting for your communication and ready to answer you.

3) They bring up the “good times” a lot

If your ex tends to reminisce over the times you shared as a couple, that’s a good sign they miss you. You might hear things like, “remember that time we went to the ice cream place together?” or “remember when we watched Paranormal Activity together?” If your ex brings up the past, chances are they’re still living in it.

4) Drunk calls

Does your ex ever call you drunk? If so, they’re probably thinking about you in the time when they’re unhappily drowning their sorrows in alcohol. And why would they do that? Because they miss you, of course.

5) They get angry for no reason

If you call your ex (or they call you) and seem to just get angry out of the blue, it’s a sign of uncontrolled and unresolved emotions. They still have feelings for you which is why they’re getting angry.

6) They stalk you on Facebook

Notice your ex stalking you on Facebook, leaving messages, or Liking your posts? Probably a sign they still miss you. If you were really broken up and your ex had moved on, they wouldn’t still be looking at your profile or talking to you on Facebook at all – much less stalking you.

This goes for any kind of social media platform like Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. Social media stalking is a sure sign that when you’re asking, “does my ex miss me?” that yes in fact they do.

7) They find random things to talk to you about

Does it seem like your ex spends forever talking about mundane topics like the weather, recent events, or just small talk type of conversations? This is a clear sign that your ex is still invested in your relationship. They’ll spend a lot of time just finding random topics to talk about because there isn’t any other reason to keep you on the phone, now that you aren’t still dating.

These are just a few signs that your ex is thinking about you, missing you, and wanting to get back together with you. It’s your choice whether or not you act on this information.

There are all kinds of internet laws; good ones, bad ones, and some that are just plain weird. The weird but true internet laws are what we are going to focus on today. These three laws come from all around the world, and can really make you shake your head in wonder at the sheer insanity of it all.

#1: It is illegal in the State of Tennessee (USA) to post/send “distressing” images using the internet

Yes, you heard that correctly. As of mid-2011 it is illegal to “transmit or display an image” anywhere online that is likely (yes, likely) to “frighten, intimidate, or cause emotional distress” to anyone who sees it. Yes, anyone, regardless of whether or not the person in question was the target of the image. This takes the crown for most ridiculous internet laws ever made! Under this law, anyone, from anywhere in the world, can see an image, and no matter what that image is depicting, or if the uploader even had an ulterior motive for posting it, if the image can be traced back to its user, they could face up to a year in jail and over two-thousand dollars in fines.

#2: It is illegal to own an “unregistered” modem in Burma

The Burmese government takes the internet very seriously… so much so that they have a stranglehold on internet access all throughout the country. Internet access is limited by means of hardware and software restrictions, i.e. unregistered modems. Visitors from outside of the country may bring a single laptop computer in with them, but it will have to be declared upon arrival, and it is safe to assume that every mouse click you make with it is being carefully watched.

#3: In Uxbridge, Ontario it’s illegal to have an internet connection faster than 56k!

This is a popular favorite online and can be validated in a number of places. This is one of those strange cases of severely out-dated laws that are still technically enforceable. It is comical to think of a place where it is illegal to have an internet connection that is faster than dial-up! Out of these three weird internet laws, this one has to win the award for most absurd.

And these are just the tip of the iceberg; there are many other strange but true internet laws on the books all around the world that make many people sit back and wonder what the heck these lawmakers were thinking when they wrote them and made them into law.

remove snapchat friends

remove snapchat friends

As one of the top video and photo sharing apps available, Snapchat’s recent news release reported over 500 million snaps sent and received on a daily basis. One of the most popular features of Snapchat is the Best Friend list, which is both hated and loved equally. Users enjoy this feature due to its easy availability of exchanging snaps with folks you often snap with, and it is equally hated because it shows the Best friends list on your profile — meaning anyone can see it.

The Snapchat Best Friends List Explained

Snapchat Best Friends, or your “top list” as they’re known informally, are 3 individuals you most frequently share snaps with. The list gets updated each week, meaning that if you snap people more frequently throughout the week, they’ll show up on your Best Friends list. You can see this list when you get ready to send a new snap, as it is shown on top of the contacts list to get easy access to it. It can be seen by anyone who has you in their contacts, and it is displayed on your profile publicly.

How to Bring Up Your Contacts’ Best Friends

To see the best friends of all your contacts, simply use the following method.

· Scroll down to the name or username of the friend you want to know about

· This brings up their profile, where you can see their username and friend score.

· There, you will see lists of those users your friend snaps with most often.

· You can move your number of best friends from 3 to 5 to 7 in the settings pane.

Keep in mind that the best friends algorithm works in such a way that if someone sends you snaps regularly, but you just reply a few times, that person could be on your best friends list simply because the score gets higher every time she sends snaps. Likewise, if you regularly send a snap to someone more often than other people do, they’ll end up on your list.

How to Remove Snapchat Best Friends

Learning how to remove Snapchat best friends is a fairly simple process, but you’ll need to fully understand how the feature works in order to use it correctly. First, Snapchat has a certain score for your best friends, with the score being the number of snaps in total that you’ve received and sent. This means the score you’ll see on your profile is the total activity number you’ve accumulated since starting to use the service. Secondly, the score is measured by the conversations you’ve had between all your friends, which determines who makes it onto your best friends list.

Then, based on Snapchat’s specific algorithm for friendship, it displays the number of snaps you’ve sent between you and all your best friends, displayed next to their names. In newer updates of Snapchat, you will see the scores in order from the top 3, 5, or 7 friends on the list. Since these friends get updated weekly, the score will reset to a 0 rating each week once the list gets updated.

Assuming you’d simply prefer to not have someone on your best friends list, you can simply control who shows up there. There are plenty of reasons you might want to do this. First, your best friends are public for anyone to see, which seems a bit odd. Why should anyone know who you’re talking with most often? Secondly, if your significant other is not the person you’re talking to most frequently, he’s going to notice that when ge goes to your profile. So some other guy you are talking to will show up on the list and your SO is going to ask some questions.

So, you can simply remove them. In order to do so, you will need to block your friends. This allows you to reset the score mentioned earlier.

A Simple Workaround to Take People Off Your List

You can’t completely hide the Snapchat Best Friends list. Instead, you’ll have to use a simple workaround to remove individuals from your best friends list. And this method also lets you replace people on your best friends list with other users, simply using a basic blocking and unblock method. Then, you can replace the people who you’ve blocked with new friends, which creates the illusion that you’re chatting with different people. Using this method, it will disguise whomever you’d rather not see on your best friends list, effectively “removing” them.

To block someone, follow these simple instructions.

  1. First, go to your best friends list and click on the settings icon, which looks like a gear.
  2. This brings up a popup window that gives you the choice to Block and/or Delete that person.
  3. Click Block.
  4. When you block an individual on Snapchat, your score will be reset to 0.
  5. That person will now be removed from all your lists, including best friends and contacts.

This is the simplest method because you can just remove that person by blocking. They will not be notified of this block — and once you’ve done it, you can just unblock them and they will have a 0 score, so no one will have any idea how much you’ve talked to them.

Now, they’ll just appear on your contacts list, and not on your best friends list.

To unblock the person, scroll down to the lowest part of your contacts, where you can see your Blocked contacts within Snapchat. Next to each person’s name you’ll see a gear icon. Click that — and then when the next window shows up, click on Unblock.

And that’s it! Now the person you’ve taken off your best friends list is replaced by a new person — the individual who has the highest score on your normal contacts list.

Chat With Others to Improve Their Scores on Your Best Friends List

Chatting with other friends will help you increase the score with them, which makes it more likely that new folks will become your Best Friends. This means that if you talk less often with the person you want to remove, the others will outscore the person you don’t want to show up as high on your list. However, remember that the new best friend updates only kick in each week.
