Dating Don'ts: Mourning Timelines For 3 Different Kinds Breakups

Breakups suck, whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee. No matter which end of the fray you’re on, there follows a mourning period, a delicate time in which you probably lash out at friends, obsess over details of the way things ended, and make ill-advised decisions about ice cream for dinner and browsing on Tinder. It’s impossible to make generalizations about how long a breakup takes to process, because every single relationship and situation is its own special snowflake. I can’t tell you what it feels like to be a part of your breakup, because only you were there to experience it. The adage about using an equation involving the amount of time you were together as the “x” factor for how long you should be upset after it ends is stupid, plain and simple. That being said, here are some rough guidelines on acceptable mourning times, from someone who has been through her fair share of breakups. But feel free to ignore them if you feel like wallowing for an extra month or six. Keep reading »

GT flirting men

“I don’t think you’d make a very good ‘Bachelor,’” Jessie says to me, halfway through the second episode of the current season. (“The Bachelor” is appointment snuggle viewing in our marriage.) For some reason, it really bristles me.

“What, you don’t think I could show a couple dozen ladies a good time?” I remember asking. “I would be a great ‘Bachelor’! I’m a fun date! I’m a good time guy! You should know that about me by now.”

“Of course you are,” she reassures me. “I just meant I don’t think you would fall in love with the kind of girls who end up on ‘The Bachelor.’”

“Well … fine, I guess you’re right,” I admit. “Just don’t forget: good time guy. I could date the shit out of these women if I wanted to. They would know they were being romanced and they wouldn’t forget it.”

“Noted.”

“They would like it, too.”

Alright!” Keep reading »

Just two days before Valentine’s Day, Redditor Nate (aka BigBags), a single dude who was so tired of being force fed “warped and unrealistic expectations of love” that he quit his job to travel around the country to interview 100 of the most amazing couples, surfaced to answer questions about his findings. (If you’re wondering, like I was, how a person can make this sort of thing happen financially, Nate explains in the comment thread that he used his life savings and raised money through Kickstarter.)

“I got really sick of being force fed these warped and unrealistic expectations of love. I didn’t think Chris Brown, Athony Weiner, or Tiger Woods deserved to be the spokespeople for relationships… but they seemed to be the only ones getting any relationship-related air time,” said Nate in his “about me.” “So, rather than complain about it, I figured I’d hunt down the most amazing couples I could find and give them the microphone.” Keep reading »
