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!
Go To A Movie By Yourself
Remember when your loser ex used to bitch about your taste in movies? Today, you’re disassociating movies in the theater from first dates and hand-holding, and you’re claiming the big screen for yourself. Go see a film that he would rather have to swallow nail-polish remover than sit through, a foreign film so you can brush up your hackney French, “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Part 347,” or the kind of explosion-loaded action flick that he always said was full of empty mind calories. It might be a little scary to go alone, so buy some M&M’s for a comfort snack. And popcorn. Or, better yet, put the M&M’s in the popcorn. They’re really good that way.
