Never Ever Ever… Getting Back Together?

never ever

Would you have a shower and then put on the same underwear you were wearing beforehand? No…probably not. Well that’s basically the same thing as getting back with an ex.

You weren’t two star-crossed lovers separated by war or famine or some other tragedy that you’re likely to see in a Nicholas Sparks movie. Realistically, you broke up for a good reason. Maybe he cheated, maybe she was a controlling bitch or maybe you just got bored of each other and broke up under general circumstances. When it ended, you might have even agreed to stay friends. But can you really be friends with an ex? Continue reading

Do You Not Have a Girlfriend?

He's Just Not That Into You

 

You know them. The kind of bloke that needs reminding because he completely ‘forgets’ he has a girlfriend or rather is well aware that he does but chooses to ignore it on a night out or weekend away.

Everybody knows about her but for some odd reason they can’t bring themselves to mention her name or acknowledge her existence.

Just be grateful you’re not her. Imagine being that girl –  sitting at home picking a nice filter for your cute, little couple’s selfie, meanwhile your bloke is out partying like;

-“What Girlfriend?”

-“Who?”

Breaking Up is Hard to Do…

There’s nothing worse than getting the boot(no point in sugar coating it) but what happens on the flip side?

Breaking up with someone isn’t an easy feat. It’s easy to take pity on the person being dumped, but really you should spare a thought for the other half. God knows they’ve probably been lying awake all night desperately googling the right/easiest way to get out of their relationship.

Generic Break Up Lines Often Used.

1. “Our lives are going in different directions” – They’re on the dole, you’re not. Enough said.

2. “The timing is wrong” – Ugh spare us. Sometimes though, the timing might not be good, especially if you’ve gotten together when neither of you were in a good place or when an ex is still on the scene trying to mess things up. It happens. Continue reading

So Like… Where is This Going?

Four words every commitment-phobe dreads – “Where is this going?” It’s the opening line to that awkward conversation that no one wants to have.

It’s the defining moment of a relationship where one person(usually the girl, let’s be honest) wants to label/title what you’re doing. You’ve managed to avoid the conversation up until now, because it could potentially ruin what you have going on. Some people are happy to just go with the flow but after a while one of you will want some consistency. In the movie ‘That Awkward Moment‘ –  Zac Efron refers to this situation as the ‘so moment’. He says nothing good ever follows the ‘so’…

 

He’d be right too.

This ‘so’ talk will decide whether you’re moving forward… or moving on!

Examples of the ‘So’:

So… what are we doing here?

So… where is this going?

So… are we in a relationship?

You Mean Like a Date?

enhanced-buzz-11959-1380299284-24

Whether you met them on Tinder, met them through a friend, already knew them or they’re a randomer mailing you on Facebook (it happens) – you’re going to dread the first date. It doesn’t matter what the situation, first dates are often terrible and are never like what you see in the movies. First of all, ain’t nobody gonna climb up a ferris wheel at the local fair to ask your ass out. We don’t even have a local fair so you can get that idea out of your head. What you might get is a Facebook mail or a text message, or if they have the mentality of a fifteen-year-old a “will you go out with my mate” might pop up from time to time. Christ!
