The Clean Break

Dear Claire,

Unless you're one of those crazy people who marry the first guy they date, you're probably going to find yourself admist a break-up at some point in your life.

Believe it or not, there are actually some benfits to being part of a break-up.  Mainly that you'll have an instant connection with ninety-nine percent of the population and the perfect excuse (not that one is technically needed) to go out with your girlfriends to either:

a) eat lots of food that is usually only respectable in small amounts
b) drink more than you should
c) sing along to either really sad or really empowering songs
d) all af the above and probably is this order

Anyway, here's one piece of advice for surviving a break-up.

Do not get back together.

I repeat - do not get back together.

That's right, the relationship probably didn't end because it was so fantastic and amazing that you just couldn't stand it and had to be apart. It probably ended because things had been brutal for awhile and one of you finally had the guts to call it quits.

So give yourself six months. Don't communicate for six whole months. If you're really meant to be together you'll find a way back into each other's lives.

But my guess'll move on...and probably on to someone who is a better fit for you.

Love you :)
