There is almost no way around it, breakups are awful. Whether you are initiating the breakup or are at the brunt of it, it’s just not fun.

When you’ve reached the stage of “acceptance” I think it’s key to have a solid breakup playlist at your disposal to help you bounce back. Think of this stage more as “acceptance AND empowerment”.

A Month Or So Ago

Let's go back a month or so ago.  The guy I ran into at the airport texted me, a lot.  He's asked me out to lunch and we went.  He's a nice guy who I see at work every now and then.  I don't consider himself to be a long term prospect because he just got out of a serious relationship, has some young kids/baby mama drama from a different woman, and I'm not sure I find him attractive.  I don't find him unattractive, but that's not a great vote of confidence.  If anything, he'll be a work friend?  I wouldn't mind being his work friend, but from that lunch

How You Can Take a Better Dating Profile Picture

In the age of online dating, a photo says a thousand words and evidently enables singles to quickly and efficiently review a huge pool of potential mates.
