How To Get Over Him & Move On!

Break ups are one of the toughest things to go through, especially if you’re still hung up on your former beau.

12 Steps For Curing a Broken Heart

Heartbreak lingers like a hangover. You wake up but don't want to move, and your head is spinning. Sometimes you need the greasiest pizza down the street has to offer, and sometimes you can't eat at all. The only thing that sounds appealing is crawling into a dark cave away from everything (which is anything) that reminds you how shitty you feel. We get it.

Single Girl Society: You May Not Be Better Off Without Him…But You Will Be

No girl is “better off” heartbroken. And yet when you find yourself newly single attending your first mostly-couples party disappointingly sober, the frenemy you wish was just your enemy drops her not-so-consoling version of a consolation for your breakup – “You’re better off without him,” she says and you cant help but want to punch her.

Single Girl Society: Get Your Mind Off Heartbreak

Just like your mother told you to get your mind out of the gutter, this week, I’m spitting the same advice with a little single girl twist, of course. It’s time to get your mind off the single world version of the “gutter,” heartbreak. So much of our time as single women is spent wondering about heartbreak, whether it was in the past or whether it’s a potential outcome.

A Few Signs He’s Done With You

I’m pretty sure we’ve already established that when it comes to college, formal relationships are a rare thing. Between texting, sexting, late night hookups, and romantic runs for drunk food, it can be hard to tell when even the collegiate equivalent of a relationship begins. And if you can’t mark the start of something, how on earth are you supposed to recognize the end?

Getting Over a Long-Term Relationship: How I Did It

When I was 15-years-old, I had a boyfriend who I was convinced I was going to marry. No one in the world could change my mind, whether the warnings came from my mom, my best friend, or the cousin I looked up to the most. Me and this guy, we’ll call him D, were in ‘love’ – or as much in love as you can be before you’ve finished puberty.

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!”

Single. With a Mystery Boy

Yesterday night, I was coming home from work and grocery shopping and I had to stop in to deposit some checks at the bank. So I’m in the bank trying to figure out how to deposit checks in these new ATMs while also not crushing any eggs in the grocery bag when quite possibly the most adorable boy on the face of the planet turns around from the third ATM and asks if I'm having trouble depositing checks too.

Sexy Time: Are We Breakin’ Up?

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.

A Guide To Getting Over Him Quickly

It all happens so quickly. You are out a bar/party with your girls, looking amazing, because, honestly, what CollegeCandy girl doesn’t look amazing? You see him, he sees you and - boom - you start talking. Talking turns into flirting, flirting turns into so-bad-they're-cute pick up lines and soon he's buying you a drink.

What Is Closure, Anyway?

Closure. What does that term actually mean? From conversations with my girl friends, I’ve deducted that “closure” is when you can finally move on from a failed relationship. My friends have described it as the feeling you get once you can finally put the relationship behind you and say goodbye to an ex for good.
