What Not to do After a Breakup
Parting ways with your significant other may lead to an identity crisis of epic proportions. What you do after a breakup could affect you for the rest of your life. Avoid these 5 embarrassing things after your relationship heads to splits-ville.
Have you ever been to a divorce party? It's tragic. When Kevin Hart's character in Act like a Lady Think Like a Man threw a divorce party it was an epic failure. Mixing alcohol with raw emotions is a recipe for disaster. Hitting the club with your girlfriends in your most scandalous outfit could lead to poor decision, regrettable hook ups and sloppy Facebook pictures.
Lashing out at your ex via text message or email should be as far as you go when airing out your feelings. When you take out your frustrations on social media you invite the entire world into your business. Once your Facebook status transitions from 'in a relationship' to 'single' the prying public will have questions. Do yourself a favor and don't air out your dirty laundry online.

Don't let a night of wine guzzling and old Mary J records convince you to do something drastic like cut off all of your hair. You may be inspired by Angela Basset in Waiting to Exhale but there is a chance you will wind up like J from Awkward Black Girl. Put down the scissors and the hair dye and wait a while before Extreme Makeover: Breakup Edition. Think before you act.
This may be difficult to do if your life is an open book between your friends and family, but trust me discretion is a must. Maybe this breakup isn't the final chapter between you and your significant other and you two reconcile. Every time the topic of your relationship comes up you will be confronted with the past which will constantly cause problems. Instead, seek out counseling or keep a journal instead of spilling the details to everyone in your contact list.
In the haze of a breakup crazy ideas start to seem less crazy. Don't decide to become a mother or up and quit your job after your separation. Focus on how to make yourself happy and sit on these ideas until further notice.
