So you’re done with a relationship and need ways of moving on? You’ve come to the right place. Wipe those eyes and come in here for a hug and then read these other ways to get over that break up and get on with your life!
When you hear something is a Romantic Comedy, you expect a happy ending. What I both love and hate about The Break-Up – SPOILER ALERT – is that the couple doesn’t wind up together. I guess the title should’ve been the big clue there, but doesn’t love win over all? Not in this case and it’s a huge lesson in not wasting time on someone who is not “the one.”
The one I thanked a couple weeks ago for being my first was never someone I was in a legit relationship but that doesn’t mean when we stopped hanging out and hooking up it hurt any less. I hate how many tears were shed over him, but around the time I was on my fifth roll of toilet paper that was aiding my tearful eyes I heard that damn Demi Lovato song, “Really Don’t Care” and a lightbulb went off in my head. Yeah, why should I sit around and let this dude have that much control over how I felt? People want to overlook pop songs like they have no real meaning but I think every genre has good and bad inside of it because while you may think a particular genre or artist is useless – that style or artist is out there making someone change a some facet of their life. The Tower and The Fool got me to stop crying over my pathetic attempt at adult living, and a few years later Demi was holding me up and helping me out in my first case of heartbreak.
Having spent almost half his life dating, Chris’ longest relationship in all those years he has been on both sides of the fence when it comes to breaking up. Be it because he felt he didn’t love the girl like one should love a girlfriend anymore, or something else – he’s called it off more times than he’s been dumped but notes that it’s not great sitting in either seat. Now he’ll talk a bit more about his misadventures in love…
We’ve dealt with the good and bad of a few things that are basically all about getting love, but this week we’re running the opposite way and talking about what happens when it all comes crashing down. The break up. Statistically you’ll have more of these than anything else because you’re not going to just date multiple people and keep those relationships all going forever, right? Sorry Kody from Sister Wives, but that is not the life for everyone else in the world. Almost every ship that crashes and burns gets taken down by a handful of the same things, so you have to know how to spot the negatives and know when it is time to just walk away. Which isn’t a bad thing. You have to know when to move on and being a real adult hopefully means ending things in good graces. Let’s face it though, that’s not the case for 99% of us…While romcoms showcase ice-cream cry fests, if you break it off on good terms you won’t be too down on yourself but first you have to know when it’s time to break it off.
