Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
Technology has made it rather hard to get away with pranks anymore.
We didn’t have caller ID when I was a kid, so you could call your friend’s house or random businesses and ask them stupid questions like, “Is your refrigerator running? Yes? Well, you better go catch it!”
Yes, I know… We apparently didn’t have caller ID OR clever jokes back in the caveman days.
When *69 came around, which was a number you could plug into your landline to find out who had called you, we couldn’t take to harassing people by phone cuz we would get caught. Thus, we took to the internet and pretty much pioneered the concept of “catfishing.” Once the average person became well-versed in online “detective” work, the days of anonymously harassing people came to an end.
But some people apparently still don’t mind giving it a-go. Read what happens to one texting troll when he attempts to break up with strangers via text.
Breaking up with someone is almost always a lose-lose situation, no matter how you dissect it or how bad you want out of the relationship.
If you’re the person being broken up with, there’s a 99% chance you didn’t want the relationship to end, which is gut-wrenching for obvious reasons. If you were dumped and it WASN’T necessarily emotional, it probably bruised your ego at the very least.
If you are the breaker-upper, you probably are doing it because your significant other was a terrible person or you just weren’t in love with them anymore. And both of these reasons are hard for different reasons.
Usually, the remedy for a broken heart involves lots of tequila, a vat of Ben and Jerry’s, Nicholas Spark movies, and the ol’ “getting under someone to get over someone.” And all of these solutions are terrible for the long-term.
Here are 8 tried-and-true ways of getting over a significant other that will keep you from dancing on bars and slashing tires. (Hopefully).
Right now the United States is in the spotlight for how we’re treating refugee children.
