4 Good Things About Break Ups


Some people view break-ups like they are the end of the world. Friends console you as you mope around for a good three to four months, but everything isn’t so bad about cutting your loses and calling it quits. Here’s ‘Four Good Things About Break-Ups’:

1. It’s a Relief

You ever break up with someone, but it wasn’t exactly your decision? Like maybe they were just tired of you, you guys were going through a rough patch, or maybe you even strayed a little. Then they just cut you off, you know like K. Camp. You felt a little sad, just a little but for the most part you were relieved. Real relief, like thinking you lost something and it magically appearing before your eyes- that type of relief. Big sigh- relief! Yeah we’ve all been there.

2. No More Obligations

Being in a relationship is cool, it’s lovely. However, you have commitments and obligations to your partner. Whether that’s being attentive, loyal, honest, committed, nice, shit the list goes on. Too many obli-f*cking-gations. All for a few blow jobs and a more inflated tab on your Mint finance calculator in your restaurant section. Sometimes you want to be selfish and just do what you want. Even if what you want is absolutely nothing.

3. Occasional Unprotected Ex Sex

See you’re over your ex and both of you guys have pretty much moved on, but sometimes you need that ex sex. The perk about sleeping with an ex is not using rubbers, unless the reason for your break-up was infidelity. In that case you wrap it up, but still enjoy the luxury of having fun with a someone you are completely comfortable with.

4. You Get to Upgrade

We can all front with that “I wish you nothing but the best, no hard feelings” shit, but most of us want to make an upgrade after a relationship and wouldn’t mind seeing an ex make a sizable downgrade. It’s vanity, we all have some hints of it.

What are some positive or some assumed positive things that come out of a break-up? Have you ever broken up and it was a relief to you? Did you try to have some ex sex afterwards? Did you upgrade or downgrade after the cutting of ties?

    1. You’re bogus man lol… I don’t wish ill on my exes. Even though I think I’m a good catch, if they find someone more compatible that’s great.

      1. I don’t wish it at all that’s too much energy, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find it funny the times it happened.

    2. How would you know it’s a downgrade? I have a friend who made a comment about her ex downgrading, but in reality she didn’t know for sure what their relationship entailed. She simply looked at the woman as being less than. This is all about being bitter, IMO. When you’re REALLY done, this nonsense is irrelevant.

  1. Breakups aren’t the end of the world….just a phase and a part of life, be you dating, shacking or married. Life is short. No need to wish anything bad on your ex – just keep it moving and leave the samsonite luggage behind.

    1. They are a necessity. Unfortunately no one tells you its ok for a relationship to fail. As a matter of fact it is a way to learn what you like, want, as well as the opposites. If we would stop trying to force incompatibility based on outer appearances and expectations we would be more accepting to truly assess our situation and make the best personal choice.

  2. Ex sex….one of God’s great creations. Nothing worse than feeling all free single, meeting somebody you like, dating and getting to know them for months, and then finally getting down with the get down to discover they lick you like a cat and stroke like a broken gym machine.

  3. The best thing about breaking up is not having to consider anyone. It’s a time to do me and hope the next wants the same.

  4. I don’t view ending a relationship as a negative thing, but rather a necessity. Life is too short. Through past experiences, I have found major relief in ending a relationship. I’ve learned you can’t make it work. If it’s not right, cut your losses and move on. We tend to stay well past a relationships expiration only furthering our own damage, yet we blame the other party….smh!

    While I’ve had Ex-sex, it’s not unprotected. People protect yourself. You don’t know what or who, the next person is out there doing.
