Dealing with a break-up is never easy and people have different coping mechanisms.
Whenever I’ve gone through a split, I found hitting the gym harder than usual and cleaning up my diet helped put me in a good frame of mind. Usually I’m so upset that I don’t want to eat in the first place, and with all of the free time I have, those extra hours I put into working out came easily.
It might not be the healthiest way to cope, despite the obvious benefit of having a trimmer bod, and I probably would’ve had a better time with my break-ups if I had a sense of humor about being dumped or doing the dumping.
Like this New Zealand woman did when she penned a hilariously descriptive Trade Me (like craigslist) post auctioning off her wedding dress, which, as the item description indicates, she did after divorcing her husband.
That’s a pretty savage recap of the relationship and what she thinks of her ex.
As of now, the dress is sitting on a $ 665 AUS bid, and the poster’s unfortunately been forced to make comments on the dress private, as media outlets kept bugging her about the ordeal.
This isn’t the first time women have flocked to private seller sites to offload wedding dresses when their relationships didn’t pan out.
Like this guy was put on blast by his fiance after he allegedly cheated on her.
Or this other woman who had a zinger for her own relationship in this candid wedding dress advertisement.
Her ex-husband eventually came out and gave his side of the story and the two ended things amicably. In fact, he even praised her blog and and industriousness in turning her own personal heartbreak into a positive.
So it’s nice to see that not all break-ups end with heaping spoonfuls of bitterness and loathing. I mean most of them do, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Right?
