Do You Keep Tokens From Exes Or Toss ‘Em Immediately?

When you and a partner break up, do you immediately dump everything that reminds you of him, or do you let stuff linger around? Post-breakup messes are handled differently by everyone.

Rant: When Is It Time To Say Goodbye On Facebook?

Just a moment ago, I excitedly clicked on my Facebook page to see that I'd gotten a message in my inbox. I clicked on it, and was annoyed to see yet another invite to J's band's show. Great. There's another thing I won't be doing Friday night. J., you see, was a guy I dated…

Several years ago, fresh out of a long-term, live-in relationship, I started seeing a guy I met in a bar who was also on the rebound. I was searching for the antithesis of my ex, and as a well-traveled, charming, cocky med student, he fit the bill perfectly. He, on the other hand, seemed to…

Whenever you get out of a relationship, do you think to yourself, "My next boyfriend is going to..." and then start a wish list traits you'd like this imaginary person to possess? For example, in high school I dated a guy who had very small feet and walked with them angled out. After we broke…

Can You Unsubscribe From An Ex’s Mailing List?

I'm being kind of stalked right now. Not in a scary way, but in an annoying way. A guy that I had a dalliance with many years ago has made a career change from bartender to candidate for a rather high position in state government. A few months ago he messaged me on Friendster, alerting…
