What Getting Dumped Is Really Like, Explained By GIFs

Getting dumped sucks. It really, really sucks. There’s no other way to put it. The last time I got dumped, I literally stopped eating (no, really), I cried in public a minimum of 20 times and I basically made myself look like the most pathetic person ever.

ANYWAY. The point is, no one likes to get dumped. As much as you want to act like a strong, independent chick who knows how to get over crappy things and deal with stuff like a grown-up, sometimes you just can’t. Sometimes you’re so heartbroken and so hurt that you have to act like an emotional mess in order to get through it. It’s okay. I’m here for you. Here’s what it’s REALLY like to be dumped, explained in GIFs, of course.
