Ivana Trump famously said, “Don’t get mad, get everything.” Jennifer from Greensboro, North Carolina, says whip out the charge card and buy yourself a humiliating billboard reading:
“Michael – GPS tracker – $250, Nikon camera with zoom lens – $1600, Catching my LYING HUSBAND and buying this billboard with our investment account – Priceless. Tell Jessica you’re moving in! – Jennifer.”
I hope Jessica is ready for this important step in their relationship. [AdWeek]
I seriously never thought I’d say this: I miss being engaged.
I don’t miss wedding planning, and I don’t miss being talked to as if, as a human with a ring and a vagina, I had no interests aside from talking about the details of “my” (so rarely, “our”) big day. I sure as shit don’t miss shopping for wedding dresses. I don’t miss getting Wedding Industrial Side-Eye because Patrick and I had, like, a wedding budget.
What I miss is the day-to-day experience of preparing to love someone publicly. Keep reading »
Earlier today, Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill‘s breakup was announced. The couple have been engaged since 2010 after meeting on the set of the movie “Goon,” and have been a rather adorable couple for a while now. Despite their generally low-key style of dating so far, it seems that their breakup may be a whole other story. According to Us Weekly, Baruchel tweeted, then deleted, the sentiment, “I won’t be on twitter for awhile gang. Getting dumped rules.” Ouch.
Telling people about the demise of your relationship with somebody is never fun. Nobody’s a fan of having to have newsfeeds of friends say that they “went from ‘in a relationship’ to ‘single’” while also going through the pain of ending that serious relationship. But while you may be tempted to spout off angry or bitter messages on the Internet regarding your present state of mind when it comes to your love life and your now-ex-partner, it may be for the best to have people find out organically (without the, er, pesticides of Twitter?) in order to avoid awkward comments on your Facebook status involving pity and sad emoticons from your loved ones. I personally believe in removing the relationship status thang altogether because…well, why bother telling people who don’t already know?
That said, if you do like to shout your feelings aloud or you simply must have the attention from every person on your Facebook/Twitter/Wordpress/Tumblr friends lists and all the ones in real life, too, here are some of the most excellent ways you can do so that are far better than a mere tweet.

It’s not an easy thing to do — erasing someone you used to love from your life. It’s more than difficult, to be honest. It rips at every part of your being, both physically and emotionally, but it must be done.
You can’t move on without letting go, and the first step is getting rid of the tangible items that are glaring reminders. It will be tough at first, but in the long run, you will have spared yourself additional pain. Read more…
Unless you’re one of the those people who actually enjoys staying friends with an ex, there’s probably a lot of things you’d really love to tell that person once the relationship is over. Whether you did the heart breaking or you’re the one who ended up having the broken heart, sometimes you just have a lot of things you’d really love to get off your chest. How could you not? Even the most amicable endings still have their share of drama and resentment. Keep reading »
After a bad breakup, feelings of love can quickly turn to hatred. You say things you don’t mean and wish for things you don’t actually want. But what happens when a person becomes so livid that bitter hypotheticals become actual actions? Some strange tales prove that all is not fair — or sane, for that matter — in love and war.
