To celebrate the publication of our first-ever book, The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide, we’re re-running the original series that inspired it, and having writer Maude Standish bravely road test the book’s expanded tasks and tips. So follow along, chart your own progress, and find out everything else you need to know to forget he-who-shall-not-be-named!
Tell Your Friends
Update your Facebook status, send your besties a mass e-mail, call your pals one by one and give each a histrionic blow-by-blow — or do all three. Telling people makes it real and final, like ripping the Band-Aid off quickly, and you’re going to need your friends right now. Prepare to be amazed by how much people care for you. (Um, unlike your ex.)
