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.

You’re not going to have a panic attack that “he” won’t like it, and you won’t have to cook around his finicky food preferences. Stop by Whole Foods, come back with the ingredients, and cook at a leisurely pace. Having Billie Holiday tunes coming from your speakers helps the process.
