Want to Win a Break Up? Get Fake Happy.

In every break up there is a definite winner and a definite loser. Someone who comes out of it all bright eyed and happy as if they just got out of rehab and someone who comes out looking like rehab is probably their best option.

You Must Try, Try Again When it Comes to Love [Confessions of a Twenty-Something]

We’re human. We love so deeply and intensely. We give our whole selves to another human being. We live for them. We’d die for them. We crave their touch and their validation and their approval. We crave belonging. We crave relationships. And we all know that sometimes those relationships don’t work out.

But not before you whip out your iPhone4 and I shout my number over the music. And that’s how it always begins.

The Time Ask Jeeves Broke Up With Me

The Time Ask Jeeves Broke Up With Me

Now it's hard to believe there was anything before Google. But back in my middle school days, Ask Jeeves was a fricking genius and there was no one I trusted more. I missed him and I I did what any girl with an old crush would do. I started tweeting. And while it started out on a promising note (and dare I say, flirtatious!), it went downhill pretty quickly.

He Said/She Said: Getting Back Into the Dating Scene After a Breakup

The point is, a breakup is hard for both parties involved no matter the circumstances. And though I had my low moments, I still wanted to jump right back into the dating scene. Why? Because I’m young and there are hot guys everywhere at my university! Because I like to meet new people! Because not all guys are going to hurt me and I’m ready to meet someone worthwhile.

Ask A Dude: Why The Disappearance Act?

After about a year of dating (non-exclusively), he told me he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend, and I was really hurt by this. I stopped talking to him and he got back together with her, and by then I loved him. After they broke up in June, I still hadn't talked to him because I was mad/hurt/upset, but I still loved him (only God knows why!).

Ask A Dude: Should I Break Up Over a “What If”?

Ask A Dude: Should I Break Up Over a “What If”?

“What ifs” are the deadliest and one of the most common affliction to present relationships. EVERYONE, and I mean everyone, has “what if” feelings about at least one phantom from their pasts. It’s just the way human beings work. We think about “what ifs” in regards to correcting mistakes we made, or erasing regrets and even as just nagging bits of neuroses reminding us of the issues we’ll never get rid of no matter how much therapy we pay for!

    Ask A Dude: Is It Time To End It?

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for about eight months. About three months ago, while very drunk, I kissed someone else and told him about it the next day. He was really upset, and while we were talking about it, he brought up how out of control mad he got when his ex-girlfriend of three years told him about another guy hitting on her really aggressively and the fact that she didn't do anything to stop it.

    10 Reasons You Should Break It Off

    Relationships can be great — always having someone to cuddle with, vent to, and share your favorite things with, but unfortunately things don’t always go as smoothly as planned. Sometimes once you get to know a person — once you spend more than a few month’s worth of sexy nights with them — you realize that maybe things aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

    Seventeen Says the Darndest Things: June/July Edition

    I love reading magazines year-round, but nothing really says "summer" like laying out in the sun with a margarita and the newest issue of a teen mag. So when I opened up the newest issue of Seventeen, I knew I was in for a treat. Unfortunately, the Seventeen staff underestimated my need for juicy preteen advice and combined their June and July issues into one, but suffice it to say that this issue still contains a few gems only Seventeen would run in its pages.

    This song has been in my head for weeks, probably because perfectly describes what I'm living through. I recently broke up with my boyfriend.

    Except not really. Long-distance was not working out for us, so we tried an open relationship. When that didn't fix anything, I ended it... two days before going to visit him for two weeks.

    Coupled. In Class

    Back when Matt and I were first dating freshman year, it came time for us to register for our next semester's classes. He and I both wanted to take Japanese as our foreign language, but agreed that it'd be better off if we took it at different times. He thought I'd be a distraction, and I didn't want to compete with him over grades.
