What NOT to do when you get broken up with by your significant other

So, you've been dumped by your significant other. Maybe your once wife-to-be, or your thought-to-be true love betrayed you. You've been broken up with, and you have no idea what to do. I'll help you out a little by telling you 3 things NOT to do after being broken up with.

Dont go and have sex with their friends

I know, I know,
it's probably hard for you to resist the tempation to hurt the one who hurt you deeply. But, it's not worth it. Sleeping with your ex's friends just to hurt them is low, sista. You are better than that. You are worth more than the rumours that will be spread about you as a result of this. Trust me when I say this: it will get around. Your ex's friend that you just slept with will not keep it under wraps. You'll be screwed. Literally and figuratively.

Don't start rumours and spread lies about your ex

We've all witnessed this happen at some point in our lives. "Oh well, he has a tiny penis, anyways." "Her vagina smelled like fish, I don't know why I hit that, dude." In all honesty, spreading rumours and lies about others says waaaay more about you than it does about them. When you're trying to get back at your ex boyfriend by telling the world that he has a small dick, everybody you're telling thinks you're stupid. You look stupid. Mark my words.

Don't be the person to start "Facebook drama" about your ex

I'm sure you probably know how annoying it is to scroll down your news feed and see that Betsy won't stop posting about her ex. She has shared three photos about her ex being unloyal, has tagged all 15 of her friends in photos that resemble her past relationship and has written three 2,000 word essays about how much her ex has hurt her. Fucking stop it, Betsy. Keep your relationship problems out of the public eye--it will benefit you greatly. Instead of venting publically on social media, meet up with a friend or two and talk to them about what's been going on. Everybody on your friends list and their mothers dont need to know about why you and Bobby-Joe broke up. Be mature about it.

Like I've said many times before, time heals everything. Every morning when you wake up, you will feel a little bit better than the morning before, and every night, you will think about your ex less. Be a mature adult/young adult about your breakup and remember that everything happens for a reason.

  • I really don't know how people can be so spiteful. Even in shitty relationships I never had the desire to treat anyone like shit. We just gotta accept we are incompatible at times and just move onto fresh experiences. People tend to think lowly of themselves when going through a breakup but in reality it just means you're incompatible not worthless. Revenge makes the whole world blind.
