How To Get Over Yet Another Break-Up


Oh blog, I’m sorry I abandoned ye. Here’s what happened:

I got dumped. Yes, yet another break-up to go through.

And I didn’t even see it coming, which is the worst.

One minute you’ve got a boyfriend and a best friend, and a few minutes later, you’ve got a stranger. And you go from signing emails with “love” to “good luck.” And that’s the hardest part, that strange new world you’re in where everything is different and you’re just trying to see what life will bring in the next 5 minutes because thinking of anything beyond 5 minutes is just too much, too much, too much.

Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost” but some of us are, some of us are really fucking lost and are checking Google maps while texting our ex.

But I’m surviving. I may even be thriving. And one way that I survive and thrive is by making break-up videos. So I present to you, “How To Get Over Yet Another Break-Up.”

Check out the videos “How To Get Over A Break-Up” here (the one that started it all), and “How To Get Over Another Break-Up” here.

    For once I am actually also going through a break up at the same time as you which is kind of awesome in a depressing way ;). These videos have always brought me great joy though, seriously. But does it really HAVE to be vodka? I’m kind of a gin girl myself…

      Gin is absolutely doable! Girl, I’m so sorry for your pain. But yeah, at least we’re in it together!

    Wow. I, sadly, am also going through a break up as well. Thanks for the video! I needed a smile. And to know I’m not the only one.

    Also. Wine. A lot of wine.

    I swear, tis the year of breakups! I had one, another couple friend had one, I can see another couple friend brewing one, you had one… ok, that’s only four. But it seems like a lot.

    I find public drinking to be my best cure. Public drinking, surrounded by friends who won’t judge when I get to the dancing level. Or even better: friends who encourage that level. I also became insanely creative and full of brilliant ridiculous ideas because I just didn’t care anymore. Like travelling to a foreign country, then sleeping with someone from my home country for the first time in three years. It was a pretty good time. I’m over the breakup now… yup… totally…. (as I try to coerce friends into going out for some public drinking….)

      Four IS a lot!

      I agree with public drinking surrounded by friends. Friends who take you out after breakups are the best kind of friends!

    Losing the best friend is definitely the hardest part. (as someone who values friendship as the foundation for a relationship important)

    Maybe it’s due to laziness, maybe it’s due to everything, but as someone who’s been single for over a year now…the idea of starting the whole process over is a bit daunting.

    Although, I’m more of the ‘love finds you when you least expect it’ type. Might explain why I’m still single!

      It’s more than daunting to some, and I totally understand. Don’t feel pressured to do anything you don’t want to do, as long as you’re content!
