Let’s just get this out of the way, BREAK-UPS ARE THE WORST. The broken hearts, crumpled up tissues, out-of-the-blue-rage-thoughts, inexplicable jealousy, newfound insecurities, endless questions to things you probably never want to truly know, and the loss of the one you love are all TERRIBLE. And while you’re stroking your former-partner’s side of the bed and seeing if the pillow has lost their scent (just me?), your friends will be there to pick up the pieces, so to speak. Dutifully with wine, pizza, and plenty of shit-talking ready to go. And as much as you’d like to buy into the whole “Screw him!” or “You’re better off without her!” adages thrown your way, the fact of the matter is, your break-up really hurts and you need some time to heal, feel sad, and just deal.

However you choose to deal is up to you. Talk about it ad nauseam to the people around you (just ya know, make sure you ask them how their day is, too). Listen to some sad songs and feel a lot of things (but try not to wallow forever). Write out everything you want to cry and scream at your ex, then put it somewhere safe (not the mailbox). Get a head-to-toe-makeover and treat yo’ self. Flip off people who are holding hands. Go to New York and just be angry, because you can just do that there. But when the mood so strikes you that you just can’t get off the couch and you’re feeling low, or tired, or not ready to face all of your (annoyingly happy) friends who are coupled-up, and you just gotta spend some time with me, myself, and TV — here are some shows to binge-watch through your breakup.
