Relationships are hard when we're young -- we fight hard for what we love, and we sometimes hold on when we should really be letting go.
Break ups can be devastating. There’s no nice way to do it and there’s no warm fuzzy feeling attached to it. Once the deed’s done, then the status is no longer quo and everything’s changed. So what next?
Breaking up is hard to do. Where you're the breaker or the breakee, there is almost always hurt and pain.
Why is asking to talk to a guy a big deal? Recently I texted my FWB that I wanted to talk to him, and asked if he had a minute later on in the day. He immediately shot back, "What's it about? Am I in trouble?"
I don't know what to do. We've been dating for three years and now we're about to finish college and I just can't stand it anymore.
Cutting out the negative thoughts in your life can help you out immensely. Especially if those negative thoughts are about an ex!
A week or so ago, my friend's boyfriend of three and a half years broke up with her citing that he "wanted to experience college and allow her to do the same." Every day last week consisted of her crying.
These songs and artists may give you the words/courage you need to end your relationship. There's a song for every relationship situation, ranging from your S.O. cheating, to the two of you growing apart.
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.
I've started hooking up with a guy who seems great in every way but one -- he's a little selfish in the bedroom. He gets his every time, whether it's through oral or old fashioned sex, and leaves me to fend for myself.
Looking back at Katy's dating history, you might say she's a "fixer" -- AKA, she dates guys she finds flaws in and is only satisfied when she's able to change them. But then, once she "fixes" them, she gets bored and moves on.
My freshman year of college I met someone who I thought was nothing more than eye candy. He was handsome, carefree and mysterious enough to keep my attention. Four years later, I found myself in a very serious relationship with a guy who was ready to uproot his life and move to New York for me. The problem? I didn’t want him to.
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about a year, and things have been great. The only issue I have is the fact that he still keeps in touch with 2 of his ex's.
Breakups are rarely easy and they are never fun. Most of the time, on one side at least, feelings still exist, and a food coma shame spiral is around the corner. Thankfully Twitter is helping us mend our broken hearts by giving us a forum to express our thoughts.
Girls seem to think that guys get over break ups at a faster rate and with more ease than women. Is this true?
This week, we'll see if it's worth hanging around a FWB situation when things get sticky, and how to move on when things are really over.
Okay, okay, I know the title’s sappy as all get out, and I admit we can fall in love with more than one person, but nonetheless I have found an increasingly common denominator:
We’re all aware that e-mail, texts, and post-its just aren’t respectful, considerate, mature, or human ways of breaking up with someone.
I have a friend (let's call her D) who is always asking me when I'm going to break up with my boyfriend. My boyfriend and I got together senior year of high school, and now it's junior year of college. He's really great, and we love each other. He's not going anywhere. What should I do?
A relationship often requires a bit of sacrifice and a lot of compromise. We all have to learn to accept and roll with aspects of our partner, or his/her life, that we don’t always understand or necessarily agree with. That’s called maturity, right? And building intimacy? I think…Now, those things aside there comes a point where you might just need to say “Hell no!” and walk off into the freedom of singledom again.
I’m not talking about Captain America vs. Iron Man. I’m talking about friends who’ve been in a relationship and now have reached their final destination: splitsville. Once the two of them go their separate ways, which one of them gets you in the proverbial divorce?
My boyfriend of 5 months broke up with me about 3 weeks ago after sitting me down and saying that he wasn't ready to commit and that he felt as if he wanted to be alone. I didn't agree with the breakup but I told him that I supported his decision. We decided to remain friends despite everything and I'm totally fine with that.
Look, we’ve all had some bad break ups. We’ve all had our hearts battered and scarred. Or at least most of us. Some of you have always been the dumper and not the dumped. Consider yourselves lucky and potentially commitment phobic. Whether or not there’s actually a good way to break up with someone, there are definitely a lot of WRONG ways.
But here's the thing: this whole thing is my fault. The whole time we were together, practically, I didn't trust anything he told me. I've had relationships in the past, and they all turned out terribly. I realize that everyone has terrible relationships sometimes, but it seems like everyone I care about lets me down. I don't trust anyone.
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.
I've been hanging out with a guy for a little over three months. We were inseparable almost from the start. When we weren't at each others' apartments, we were texting so a day never went by without us communicating in some way. HOWEVER, we were not dating because he "doesn't date."
You're now moving onto the next phase of your life. It's time to decide who you're gonna be as an adult. And you yourself, you don't want to be with someone who drinks a lot, and you don't want to be with someone you're fighting with. And I think those are good choices.
Every week, Tuffettes, I read your emails and I wish wish WISH people didn't cheat. Sometimes, as in Angry Bitterness's case, it's the guy cheating, and sometimes it's the girl cheating. Either way, I just want to scream--BREAK THE FLOOP UP!!! Wouldn't that be easier than sneaking around behind each others' backs?!
Because not seeing him meant that I had no idea what he was up to. How he was handling this whole mega-break up. If he was at home crying into a box of Fruity Pebbles (our cereal), throwing things in a fit of rage whenever anything reminded him of me (which should mean broken everything), or just sorta going about his daily business….only now, with the enthusiasm of Eeyore.

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.
Yesterday I tripped up some stairs, yes up. That's okay though, because it was still the best day ever. As I hobbled back home and onto my couch, the sweet sound of gossip news on E! informed me that my childhood love, Justin Timberlake was finally, and truly single. Score! It got me thinking, why are so many hollywood hotties tied down?

If you find yourself at a crossroad, where your single life intersects with your ex who wants you back, you should keep in mind that after the first time, going back won't be considered romantic anymore. Nobody likes the couple that breaks up after every fight and then gets back together just weeks later.
Dear Dude, I've been dating this fella for about five weeks. We get along well, we enjoy each other's company, he's good to me, he's always treated me like a lady, he's changed some of his habits for me, and he's a sweetheart. Here's the thing though: I don't want him. I don't feel that "spark" with him. I want to end things with this guy, but I'm not sure how to.
