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.
You’ve been in a relationship for a while and things have started to get a little rocky. But it’s fine, you guys can get through this.
But then you see your BF and he’s like, “I can’t do this anymore” and you’re like…
You may or may not beg for him to change his mind. He’s not budging.
You cry. A lot.
You get out of there before you make a complete fool of yourself.
How did you not see this coming?!
You text your best friend and she’s like, “Come to me, I’ll make you feel better!” But honestly, you just feel like being alone.
So you go home, grab two boxes of tissues, climb into bed and cry until you fall asleep.
In the first few seconds when you wake up, you forget that you two broke up and you wonder why your nose is clogged with dry snot.
Then you remember. You got dumped. Back to bed you go.
All day, you get texts and calls from friends asking if you’re okay. You’re like:
Your mom asks what’s wrong and you’re like, “Just leave me alone, Mom.” She obviously gets mad at you.
You spend the day crying but not eating and it makes you feel exhausted.
You venture online. OMG WHO WROTE ON HIS WALL ALREADY.
Ugh, now it’s time to change your relationship status on Facebook. Worst.thing.ever.
A random asks what happened. Um, mind your own business.
After a few days of hibernating, you allow your best friends to try to cheer you up.
They let you know your ex is a loser and you can do so much better, but this doesn’t really make you feel better.
You don’t want to seem pathetic, so you try to act like they helped.
Instead, you go home and feel lonely and miserable.
A commercial for Outback Steakhouse comes on. OMG you guys talked about going there. Memories. Pain. SO MUCH PAIN.
You cave and call him. He doesn’t answer. You call a few more times. You just want to say:
Adults give you “wise” advice that actually just makes you feel kind of stupid.
People tell you there are plenty of dudes out there. Okay, but you only want one dude right now, so that doesn’t help.
When you see over couples it makes you want to run away screaming.
After a week, you tell people you’re okay because you’re sick of everyone feeling sorry for you.
Truthfully, you’re not okay. You feel really, really lonely. You miss your ex. You can’t imagine a time when you felt this horrible.
You feel like you’ll never move on and it’s the worst.
