Chances are, when you were in a relationship, you never imagined what it would be like to live your life without your partner, probably because it was a source of pain or unhappiness to think about it. Now that your relationship has ended, it’s not only something you think about everyday, it’s an uncomfortable reality that you have to live with and try and figure out how to process the pain.
While a lot of our exes are great people who deserve nothing but the best, the majority of us probably have at least one relationship we totally regret. I wouldn’t say I’d rather do anything than date my ex again, but I would take my chances with Coronavirus before going back to his toxic ass. And that’s just a start. Here are 15 things I much rather do than ever take him back again.
According to researchers studying marriage and romantic relationships, the way a couple argues can tell a lot about the future of their relationship. In fact, researchers studying married couples at the University of Washington were able to predict with 91% accuracy whether a couple would stay together or divorce, primarily by analyzing the couple’s communication patterns during a disagreement.
Letting go of someone is hard, but so is holding on. And sometimes the pain you feel is so great that you feel like you might literally die of a broken heart. The good news is, a breakup can be one of the best moments for self-reflection and improvement.

A Missouri woman pled guilty to smuggling a .22 pistol into the Boone County Jail inside her vagina on Valentine’s Day has been sentenced to ten years, according to reports. Amy Wilhite, 39, is said to have snuck the gun through a pat-down and a strip search prior to being booked for weapons and narcotics on Valentine’s Day. Sources say the 4 inch revolver was discovered fully loaded with five rounds of ammunition, 17 days later along with her personal belongings. It is believed that Wilhite stashed the item with her clothing before being incarcerated.
Wilhite pled guilty as part of a deal in court and alleged she was holding the gun for someone else.

A recent blog I posted called The Female Orgasm: Explained, revealed a statistic from the 2010 Journal of Sex Research claiming that 50% of women faked an orgasm because an “orgasm was unlikely, they wanted sex to end, and they wanted to avoid negative consequences (e.g., hurting their partner’s feelings) and to obtain positive consequences (e.g., pleasing their partner),” reasons that also aligned with women who participated in my (informal) study. I am also in this number, but I admire those women of a different breed who claim to never have faked an O either because they didn’t need to (because the sex was that amazing) or because they’re brutally honest. #SAVAGE #ICouldNeva
