talked down to/told off an ex/fling/fuckbuddy that you no longer held any feelings for (after several months of being broken up) just to make yourself feel better? just curious? example scenario - after many months of agonizing over your ex and feeling depressed you two agree to meet up for whatever reason (dont argue against it) and in the process of you two hanging out, you tell your ex how you felt, how shitty of a person they were, how they broke your heart and they're evil, etc. etc. ditto ditto. and after its all said in done feel like you have closure/feel good about yourself and your whole outlook on your dating/social life looks a little brighter. edit - to clarify; the telling him/her off ultimately is to make yourself feel better about the two of you breaking up.
