Girl Talk: Everyone Saw Me Cry

“The important thing is that nobody saw you cry,” my mom kindly consoled me over the phone, after I told her how I had behaved like a drunk toddler at my friend’s wedding the night before. “But mom, that’s just it, everyone saw me cry,” I tried to explain to her quietly, not wanting the…

This morning, as part of my pre-work routine, I logged onto Facebook and noticed it was my friend Joel's birthday. As I was clicking over to his page to leave a "Happy birthday!" message on his wall, it suddenly occurred to me, Wait. That means it's his birthday as well. My ex, that is. It…

Baking: The Best Recipe After A Good Heart-Breaking

Since I've only had three serious boyfriends in my life, I can't really say I only become Betty C**ker when I have a breakup … because that would have only been three times. But I can say that every single time I get my feelings hurt by a man, which unfortunately is more frequently tha…

Mind Of Man: The Best Part Of Breaking Up

The best part of a breakup is wallowing. There are five stages immediately following a breakup, and they aren’t denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. They are as follows: shock, blubbering, wallowing, staring blankly at walls, and finally, dancing. The final stage is usually preceded by a music montage featuring upbeat adult contemporary music, a…

Dear Wendy: “I’m Physically Sick After Ending My Engagement”

I called off an engagement about two weeks ago and I am an absolute mess. I feel like I can't eat, can't sleep, have massive headaches, nightmares, constantly feel sick to my stomach ... I could go on but I think that paints the picture. I'm seeing a therapist and it's sort of helping, but…

How To Get Over Your Ex With Craigslist

My boyfriend and I had broken up, and my heart was in pieces. I needed a weird and fluky experience to distract me from reality and test my ability to feign composure. And, as we all know, the first step in getting over heartbreak is random sex. What better way to combine sex and weirdne…

How Long Does It Take To Get Over An Ex?

A new study says it takes the typical person 17 months and 26 days to feel ready to move on after a divorce, which got me thinking: How long does it take to get over a regular ol' breakup (you know, one that doesn't require lawyers)? The answer, of course, is that there isn't one…
