Single. Without Even a Kinda BF

Even though I’ve been technically single for almost an entire year, I’ve still been talking to my old high school boyfriend pretty regularly. I’ve still been seeing him when we’re both home on breaks, much like this girl.

Friday Faves: What Not To Do When You’re Breaking Up

This is a sad story. It begins, as most of my stories do, with me spilling coffee all over myself. I ducked into the nearest clothing store to pick up a cheap new shirt, and found myself staring at a lime-green, rhinestone-encrusted t-shirt reading “My Boyfriend Is Cuter Than Yours.” Next to it, a similar horror, this one reading “I May Be A Flirt, But My Boyfriend Likes It.” Above it, “I’m A Diva! Just Ask My Boyfriend!”

The Morning After: Unsuccessfully Forgetting the Ex

I was in a new college town and my roommate just got her fake ID in the mail. Coincidentally, I had also just told my ex I didn’t want to talk to him anymore. I needed to stop thinking about him all the time if we weren’t going to be together. The timing couldn't have been more perfect.

Ask a Dude: He Dumped Me…and Won’t Stop Texting

Dear Dude, My boyfriend broke up with me recently. He gave me legitimate reasons and used the "we're not working, but I don't want to lose you completely" line, which I've received too many times before. But this time, this ex is actually going through with trying to be friends. We broke up on Saturday and saw each other one last time on Sunday when he helped me move my stuff into a storage unit....

Okay, so how excited are you for Eat, Pray, Love to finally come out? Because I know I’m absolutely dying to see Julia Roberts and James Franco and Javier Bardem all together in one glorious movie.

Single. With No Hope

You know those couples that make you believe in love? Like grandparents well past their 50th anniversary and still making each other laugh, or like Brad and Jen (granted I was, like, a toddler when they dated, but I'm sure I still thought they were cute then...) Well, I had a golden couple in my own life...

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Beating The Break-Up Blues

You know how they say death and taxes are the only two certainties in life? Well I think there's a third and it's the break-up. Everyone deals with one at some point and, in a nutshell, it blows chunks. It ain't easy and sometimes, when you're curled up in the fetal position with a puddle of melted ice cream next to your face, it feels as if the pain is never gonna go away.

Would You Rather…

Would you rather be the dumper or the dumpee? Things to Consider: post-break up weight gain, telling your friends you got dumped, extreme guilt, changing your relationship status on Facebook.

Single. And Cynical

This has been a rough month. On top of approaching midterms, stress over summer internship plans, and the most awful Political Science professor known to mankind (he legitimately looks like a cartoon character, has the intelligence of an action figure, and wears his cell phone around his neck on a rope...), it seems like half of my school has recently been broken up with.

Single. And Getting Dragged Back In

One of the best first dates I’ve ever been on was to a sushi restaurant. I had never tried sushi before, and it ended up becoming one of my favorite foods. I ended up dating that boy for three years. And in those three years, our lives became increasingly intertwined. We were already in the same honors classes, we both played soccer, we both wrote for the school newspaper. We fit into each other’s lives so perfectly.

Relationship Status: Slap in the Face… Book

You log in and scroll through Newsfeed, which usually goes a little something like this: status updates from "kind-of" friends, photos posted from family vacations that you don’t care about, “top 5 favorite Miley Cyrus songs” (she even has 5 songs?), “What’s my Ghetto Name,” more status updates, ex-boyfriend is no longer listed as single, status upd… WAIT WHAT?!

OutOfYourLife: At Least Break Ups are Stimulating the Economy

Ah, breaking up. America’s favorite pastime. Whether your relationship ended abruptly, amicably or was “complicated” for way too long (cough EIGHT MONTHS cough) before it ended on a really terrible note (totally hypothetical situation - definitely didn’t happen to me this weekend) breaking up fully blows.
