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.
Last week, my male friend over at Coed Magazine shared his thoughts on how we ladies handle life after a break up. And let me just say, I haven’t LOLed that hard since the first time I watched this. (OMG. Just watched it again. HILARIOUS.)
I never thought I'd have to choose between my best friend and my boyfriend. Never. I'm not even sure how I get into the situation in the first place. When I first met my boyfriend during class, I immediately wanted my best friend to meet him. You know how it is. You want your girl's seal of approval!
Dear Tuffy Luv, Ten months ago I met the best guy I have ever been with. We have/had the best story ever. We met at the airport on the way home from separate study abroad trips, same flight home, we started talking at the gate. After a first "date" and a visit from him, he asked me out.
Dear Dude, My long distance 3-year boyfriend broke up with me 3 weeks ago. We became really close and honestly the relationship was really easy. He never cheated and he always called and texted. And I thought waiting for him to come home was right. Yet, 3 years later, we are both 10 min away from each other and he decided to break up with me 7 days before V-Day.
Lesson 10: He wasn’t that great. I cant tell you how many times my friends have exclaimed to me over cocktail-induced tears that the cant believe they’re not with their ex-boyfriends, because and I quote, “He was so great!” Why is that our post relationship-blinders have gotten us confused as we choose to see only the good in past relationships?
Look, I know it’s cheesy but as single ladies, we’re only as good as the girls we surround ourselves with and when one of us is down, we’re all down. Of course it gets frustrating sometimes, watching your formally single and fabulous bestie go from taking names (and numbers) and kicking ass to sullen and sunken into a sofa watching “The Notebook.”
So it’s New Year’s Eve and you’re single...again. Cue the tightest little black dress that practically defies the laws of physics. Cue double fisting $4 champagne. Cue the drunk dialing your ex just to tell him you “don’t miss him or his BMW at all!” Well...maybe not that last one. Not this year anyway.
Hey Dude, I just broke up with my boyfriend of more than 6 months (who keeps count these days anyway?), and it’s been a rough time. Mostly, I think, neither one of us wanted to break up but we had been growing apart for sometime. New changes in his life prompted him to cut the cord, and we went our separate ways…kind of
Just about everyone out there seems to have dating horror stories. Seriously, ask anybody; chances are they'll tell you that they have a relationship that they wish had just never happened. I myself went through a pretty nasty break up earlier this year. I've spent the past 7 months trying to put my life back together and pretty much hating my ex for how nasty he got post-breakup.

Dear Dude, My best friend came clean this summer and told me he has had feelings for me since the eighth grade (six years). There is one problem: he has had a girlfriend for a little over two and a half years. He told me he is losing interest in her, she is not his type, and he hates so many things about her; she was just the girl he needed at the time.
