What do you do after a breakup?

Well, breakups aren’t all that easy. If you’ve been with someone long enough, you get habitual of them. Their absence starts to make you desperate. The memories start to haunt you and there is this perpetual pain that never ceases to end, but it’ll pass, trust me. Everything is temporary, if happiness can be severed by time, so can pain.

Some of these behaviours are shown by girls after a breakup and some of them are actually really crazy but desperation has always been ugly and when someone doesn’t want you as much as you want them, you end up doing stuff which will be quite ridiculous to you in the imminent future. Nonetheless, you have to pass this phase and just laugh it off when you’re past it.

Here are some things girls do after a breakup.

  1. Stalking

In the age of social media, instead of driving around their home or perusing their every action like a creep, people tend to take the help of social media for this special stealthy task. If they have blocked you, you might even ask your friend for their account so you can just check what they’re up to. Whatever the case may be, it’s actually pretty fun. You’re dying from the inside but still misery is sometimes funny. No judgments here, I just have a crooked sense of humour.

  1. Visit Old spots

Do you ever just pass by an old hangout spot and kind of break inside for a couple of minutes? I know how it feels. Girls tend to visit rooftops where they just gazed at the stars and held hands with him in the dimming light of the moon. It can be any place; a garbage dump can become memorable if you’ve shared a moment with someone special there.

  1. Getting their drink on

We underestimate the power of a couple of drinks. Throw up and do crazy stuff and say ridiculous man-hating things, well that’s part of the fun. This is actually quite an essential thing to do after a breakup because sometimes all those emotions need some numbing. What better way to do that than to get out of hand in a bar and make a scene?

  1. Listens to crappy love songs

Love songs, ah this is really cliché. Music has a way to touch your soul and listening to your favourite playlist and just lying there idle in your bed for hours and shedding a few tears depending upon the enormity of your breakup, it’s all part and parcel of a breakup. You don’t want to get out of your bed and face the world because you find everything cringe-worthy. Here’s where your best friends come in and drag you out to this messed up world.

  1. Gossiping about the 'Horrible' Ex

Well, if the guy really treated a girl badly, then she will not hold back much after the breakup. You will find a confidant or sometimes, the desperation gets the best of you and you just tell everyone what kind of an a**hole the guy was. You even end up telling their bad toilet habits, sometimes. Even if it makes the other person awkward, you just want to let it out.

  1. Binge-watching

When the whole world seems like a corrupt place, where do you find solace? Well, in your favorite TV shows or movies. You just binge watch them for hours just to keep yourself busy and pass the time and it is quite helping because some shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead have the power to get your ex out of your head for some time. They are just that good. It’s 3 am and you’re on the verge of closing your eyes but you’re so hooked that you just want to squeeze in one more episode before you doze off. I surely wouldn’t blame you as I am guilty of the same habits.

  1. Just take the car Keys and go on a long drive

"No longer to be poisoned by civilization, she flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild."

Sometimes, things become so horrible and every part of your body aches so much that you just want to run away from everything and take a trip into oblivion. A place where there’s no one, just you and nature. So, what do you do? You just take your car keys and go for a long drive. There’s no destination in your mind, you’re just a wanderer finding a place which will give meaning to your condition. It might be a couple of miles away or in another city. You have no clue about anything but you’re still driving on.
