Break-up Tip #37

You have survived Valentine’s Day, congratulations!

So, it’s safe to come out again and although you will continue to see a few remnants of the V-day celebrations on Facebook, you have survived the day and will be worry free for at least one more year.

What better time to look forward to the future without the worry and hassle of a holiday devoted to Love? Let’s face it those giant teddy bears and heart shaped chocolate boxes are just tacky and we don’t need the extra clutter anyway, right? I’m not saying it wouldn’t be nice to have a delivery man show up at work with a large bouquet of flowers but let’s just wait till next year.

You may be asking yourself what does this year look like for the newly (or not so newly) single lady. Well, that my friend is up to you! If you decide to dwell on your past relationship, this year could be one of solitude and long nights of regret but it doesn’t have to be. You see, now that we’ve gotten over the hump of Valentine’s Day, we can finally rest in the fact that no one can publicly throw their love in our faces without many people wanting to gag.

What I’m trying to tell you, ladies, is that it’s time to take a risk, get out there and see what other fish there are in the sea. If that means online dating, then try it. If that means trying out new hobbies and going to new places, then do it! What it doesn’t mean is stalking your ex until 2am, nothing says crazy quite like someone sitting in a tree staring into their exes’ window (can we say creepy!).

No, you are better than that and I think we have a little more self-respect too. You don’t have to let this break-up be the end of the world; let it be the start of something new. It’s time to really start the year off with a bang. I believe you deserve the right to love and we all want to be happy, right?

Give love one more chance this year because your ex doesn’t deserve to have you back and there is probably a new (even better) guy just dying to take you out.

Hey! Free dinner never hurt anyone 

Good luck Ladies xox

Breakup Tip #35

Valentine’s day is around the corner…(insert death march now-just kidding!)

For those with significant others, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate the love they have with that person. However, when we’re single Valentine ’s Day or “ V-day” as I like to refer to it as, can be rather unwelcome. We get it, when we’re in a relationship we love V-day but, when we’re not we dread it. Simple as that.

Now, let’s add a breakup to the equation and BOOM, it’s like Valentine’s Day just became your worst nightmare, can I get an Amen?

Having your heartbroken right before V-day or worse on Valentine’s Day can be crushing; you suddenly realize you’re going to have to deal with hundreds of happy couples just flaunting their cuteness in front of you. Makes you sick, right? Well, it doesn’t have to.

Valentine’s day can be better than you think, no one said you have to spend it with the person you love, just people you love, so why not spend this Valentine’s day with those (wonderful single) friends that don’t care if you have a boyfriend or not. Hey, remember that bottle of champagne you were saving for a special occasion? Well, guess what…this is it!

Crack open the bubbly and have a good time with those that really do care about you. Who wants to spend Valentine’s Day with someone who doesn’t appreciate them anyway? I don’t, and neither should you. So, don’t let this holiday get you down, take it in your stride and enjoy it without the commitment of a man who will only end up disappointing you.

Have fun, Ladies!

Love,

Breakup Tip #30

New Year, new you.

It’s almost 2012 and with the New Year just around the corner why not take this opportunity to turn over a new leaf. You may have had your heart broken this year or maybe you were the one to break someone else’s heart but either way, you can now look ahead to a new chapter in your life.

As is tradition in the New Year, we are told to create New Year’s resolutions, something that we will do differently to help improve our situations. Well, why not use 2012 to be a new start? A chance to move on from your past and be open to meeting someone new! I know it sucks to see all you friends get engaged around Christmas and as much as you are happy for them, you can’t help but also feel a little left out. The bad news is if you continue to think about Mr. I’m not interested anymore, you will never open yourself up to finding Mr. Right!

I want to give you a little glimmer of hope, it’s not over. Trust me.

For all my ladies out there who are still grieving over their exes, it’s time to move on, forget him and go see what the next person will bring to your life because I guarantee there will be someone else waiting to sweep you off your feet.

This isn’t an easy time of year to be single, I get it. Don’t let it get you down, let it bring you hope and when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve you never know who could be waiting to kiss those fears away.

Good luck ladies and Happy New Year!

Breakup Tip #28

The holidays, a great time for couples a not so great time for singles…

After a relationship ends, the last thing you want to see are commercials of couples getting engaged or even couples you know getting engaged. It just feels totally wrong and inconsiderate, right?

Well, unfortunately it’s that time of year again; one of the hardest times to be single. Like many others, I too hate seeing all the sappy Zales commercials with the “I love you” in different languages as their significant (abnormally handsome) other hands over a huge diamond ring.

However, Christmas doesn’t have to mean that you have to curl up in the fetal position because you are alone. Not at all. All it means is you get to skip the ugly holiday sweaters (that matched. ew) and avoid the awkward moment where he gets you the one thing you really didn’t want/need and try to pretend you liked it.

The holidays are a time for family to enjoy those around you, who for better or worse, love you no matter what. This time of year may feel lonely but it doesn’t have to be. Why not have a Christmas party with your closest friends or go and visit some family you haven’t seen in a while. You don’t need to be sitting at home drinking eggnog and wishing you could just skip this holiday. I won’t allow it and neither should you!

Give yourself some time off and enjoy this time of year because before you know it you will be back in a relationship with a new (hopefully much better guy) and he will be saying I love you and giving you the ring of your dreams, it just takes a little time.

Until next time, Merry Christmas!

Love,
