The Breakup Aftermath: What’s Classy vs. Crazy.

It’s been said for ages that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but that was before the Internet existed. If your once-blissful courtship has now run its course, you may find that all you’re left with are some fuzzy memories, some movie ticket stubs and the half-consumed can of coke he left on your dresser (slob). Breakups are weird, and it’s important to take note of your feelings and monitor them carefully before you find yourself crying in the bathroom of the Taco Bell he used to take you to after bar close (hey, it happens to the best of us). Not sure where the line is? Let me draw it for you: 

Classy:
Maintaining a Facebook friendship in name only, and locking him out of your personal life with some serious privacy settings. Reading your wall posts is a privilege, not a right.
Crazy:
Maintaining a Facebook friendship where you post on his wall daily, the social media equivalent of a dog marking its territory. Do not pee on his wall with photo memories of your good times, crazy girl!

Classy:
Quietly returning the perfectly-worn t-shirts you pilfered from his closet over the course of your relationship.
Crazy:
Quietly burning them in your bathtub while drinking wine and watching Waiting to Exhale. If anything, you should be burning them in a garbage while drinking straight whiskey and laughing maniacally.

Classy:
Subtly deleting the Facebook albums that feature self-taken shots of the two of you kissing.
Crazy
:
Subtly renaming each album PRE BREAK-UP PICS WITH THE BIGGEST JERK IN THE WORLD! VOL. 1

Classy:
Telling people that while the relationship was great while it lasted, it was simply time for you both to go your separate ways.
Craz
y:
Making sure everyone knows about the time he got so drunk he peed in his closet.

Classy:
Writing about it in your journal. Even just keeping a journal is pretty classy.
Crazy:
Writing about it in your journal while you follow him around from a safe distance.

Classy:
Avoiding the spots you frequented as a couple to avoid any awkward run-ins.
Crazy:
Loitering at the spots you frequented as a couple, hoping for an awkward run-in to turn into a reunion that includes a public kiss, potentially in the rain.
