The end of a relationship signifies a new period in your life. A transitional period that's not always the most comfortable or attractive - think ugly crying - but a journey we all have to go through. If you've broken up with someone recently, prepare to be triggered:
1) Downloads Tinder:
It's time to check out who's living in your area since you last shacked up. Just remember to block your ex.
2) Joins A Gym:
Going through a break up means you need to display the perfect exterior possible. The perfect place to do this is by checking into your gym, posting selfies with a full face of makeup or in a gym mirror wearing the tightest clothes you own.
3) Makes An Empowering Playlist:
Who better to guide you through this new independent phase than Destiny's Child, Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Dua Lipa or Christina Aguilera? You're welcome.
4) Contacts A Friend They Haven't Seen In Six Months Who Loves The Sesh:
It's time to take those friends down from the top shelf and dust 'em off. You'll need them to remind you of who you are. That's if they'll still have your co-dependent ass.
5) Posts #OOTD And Selfies Online To Appear As Busy As Possible:
Create the illusion you're better of without them by posing with as many people as possible. Who's happier than a sociable person in an on-point outfit? Nobody.
6) Finds A No-Strings Attached Friend:
While you're dusting your actual friend off, find a friend who's happy to sit on that shelf and be at your beck and call. Preferably, find someone who isn't married.
7) Makes A Plan To Become The Next Famous Explorer:
If you're not writing your bucket list of travel plans and tagging yourself in every Ryanair sale going are you even newly single? #wanderlust
8) Falls Into Another Relationship:
'Cause lets face it, who can bare to be alone? Co-dependency forever.
