How is your day?

So I’ve been dumped via silent treatment/subsequent text messaging. And while my brain is aware that such behavior should result in an Ariana Grande-style “Thank u, next” reaction, it’s actually pretty tough to deal with. Can we do some fun gifs? Or if you’re having a tough day some commiseration? Or, please lord, some good news if you have it?

    Ooh ooh actually can I hear some break up stories? That would definitely make me feel better.

      I haven’t got any fun ones 😦 But I am very sorry to hear that. When Mr Gnidrah exited stage left end of last year, he did at least have the decency to tell me (via text, but ok) and i haven’t always been that lucky, so I appreciate it. My 16-year-old cousin messaged me “thank u next” and it did make me laugh, despite being sad.

      You can take the time to be sad. In fact you must! There’s a tendency I feel right now to be like, NEXT FISH IN THE SEA, when actually you need a bit of healing. My friend just is getting divorced and already started dating again – her husband was hitting her, in front of their baby, so yeah, divorce is the exact right move, but I am trying to convince her that she might want to take a few moments for herself first of all! She just fell for someone after two dates, and he just told her yesterday that he doesn’t see himself being a stepfather, and obviously she is heartbroken – but take a breath girl! It’ll be OK!

      And another girl I work with – her ex just took an overdose as a way to get her attention. She is no way going back to him, but as she is down as his next-of-kin, he knew they would call her when he didn’t show up to work. Again, we are saying to her, it’s OK to be sad and angry about all of this!

      Anyway I am going to go off and try to think of good break-up stories, but what I can tell you for certain is, there will be a Eurovision post before the end of today, so there’s always that…

        Yay Eurovision! Yes a ghosting is the worst. But the making me take a hint and call out silence is also not very nice. Those stories are all worse than mine, so thank you. It’s so easy to feel like everyone else is getting it right and living in bliss.

        • gnidrah says:

          Oh absolutely. That’s what I find hardest. Even if I know nothing is perfect, it still feels as though everyone else has the fairytale.

        • gnidrah says:

          And yes, the forcing us to play detective/look and feel desperate is cruel. I get that breaking up isn’t pleasant, but treating people like they don’t matter isn’t pleasant either.

      Oh my gosh, I’m sorry it didn’t work out. My dating life is almost entirely hilarious failures, but you will have to “drag me out” for beers to hear some. NEXT.

    Oof. Tough one. You deserve better! I had to go to the dentist today but that was the worst for me. I baked some pumpkin bread! Gonna have some now.

    That’s terrible. Being hurt is a normal reaction unless you’re a sociopath!

    So, I once moved across the country for a guy who dumped me three months later. Talk about hot-to-cold. I was wrecked. I went to see a movie with some friends a few days later, and I remember lying down in the backseat of the car because sitting up took too much emotional energy. Then I moved to Japan, which I guess is the best “thank u next” I had.
