It's Fat Tuesday, and I'm FAT.

Things not to say to a woman whose relationship has just ended;
1. I always thought
a. He was weird.
b. This would happen eventually.
c. You could do better.
d. You'd be together forever.
2. I never thought
a. He would do this to you.
b. He was right for you anyway
c. He was cute.

My responses

-Waaaa. Me either .
-I didn't know.
-Ok, maybe I knew and chose to believe differently
-I hoped for the best.
-I worked hard for this relationship because I believed a lot was right about it, and I was getting something out of it at various times.
-it was better than being single most of the time.
-I just lost my best friend...Under the circumstances, I'm occasionally willing to call him an asshole, I am very rarely in the mood to hear him CALLED one.

The best thing to say to girl who's just been dumped -- come out with your girlfriends and drink too much and bitch too much. It's good for the soul.

Yes, I agree with these...it's oh-no-so-helpful when people say, "we knew it was just a matter of time before it all exploded" right after a break-up. How did they know? What I that blind? People don't really know what to say. I think Rikki's advice is the best: Come hang out with your girlfriends and have a drink!
