Why Breaking Up can be good...

I’ll not beat around d bush here, about why I m writing this post. I had a breakup. Very recently. Lets not get into the why’s and when.. because it’s a rather long and messy story. So anyway, I decided to write this, because.. Damn!! Breakups can be good. I had a LOT of fun coming up with some of these reasons along with my rocking friends.. (\m/) So here goes :

1. You find out who your guardian angels are. Seriously! I didn’t know I had so many. Across all sorts of distances and even borders (Mwah! You know who you are!) You also find out who your real friends are. The ones who don’t say anything except “What d hell are you doing alone on a Sat night..??? Lets Parttyyyy!!!”

2. You get to hang out with friends so much more that it WILL make you wonder what the heck were u doing all this while.. lost in your own world, when you should have been enjoying life with these friends!

3. You get so much time for yourself, that suddenly, unlike other times, you have a million things to do and so little time. Hehe. (I have been wondering what to catch up with first, the guitar lessons or the unwatched seasons.. lolz!)

4. You get to spend a lot of time with the family. Meaning you are out of your room, and off your phone, and actually listening to how did mom’s day go. And that's a good feeling!

5. You get to stare at cute guys asses. (Hi5!!) Hehe. (Ok, I'll be honest, earlier it was just the faces. Now you can blatantly check them out!) (Courtesy : ILMB, CC’s)

6. You get to burn stuff. Haha. TRUST ME! It's an awesome feeling (rem when in FRIENDS, they try to burn and cute firemen show up!) (Courtesy : Pam)

7. You can FINALLY go to the mall with the sole purpose of buying lingerie. Lolz. I realized its actually true!! Guys always hurry you through the most important section a woman’s gotta have.. n with the guy gone you have plenty of time for laces and satins. (wink wink) (Misty Rhythm gave me d idea through this post)

8. You can leave.. umm.. certain places unshaven. (courtesy: Tinku)
(I got a LOT of raised eyebrows for this one.. so for everyone's benefit i clarify.. i DIDN'T come up with this, n I DIDN'T mean what you pervs think!!! i meant the goddamn hands duh!!!)

9. Your friends wont mind sharing you with other friends.. hehehe!! Meaning you can juggle between multiple ‘friends’ :D (Courtesy : Rahul *Rahul’s Quote : “shee yaar!! I feel like having an extra affairal affair with all these faltu ka restrictions she’s put on me”*)

10. You get to see for yourself what an impossibly wonderful, strong and beautiful person u really are!!! Trust me on this, nothing could do you more good than breaking up with someone who wasn’t meant to be. Good, messy, bad, spiteful.. whatever way it ends, You'll learn a lot about yourself than any other experience you have ever had!! :) :) :)

self analyse- rebuild - is what I learned :) good read made me smile with my twitched lips...

The Blue Indian said...

Regarding #5.. u urself accept doing that but when u find guys checking out girls (specifically u-knw-wat), u call them perverts/despos/cheapos.. how hypocritical!!

lost_soul said...

i like \m/

Ms.R. said...

Your point reminded me of the time when I used 2 chk out their butts! hahaha!

Another wonderful thing is that you don't have to choose between friends and feel guilty for going out with the bf. A smile to that cute guy doesn't mean saying sorry, i don't mean it and blah blah for the next hour.

You can actually think of ways the guy was so not hot and keep those points in mind. So when you get into the dating pool again, (which is a lot of fun - fishin around until you get hooked :P) then you'll be able to watch out for the so-not-right signs.

And the best part - you can dish dirt without feeling or having to say sorry!

I like that part. Some areas unshaven. LOL. Awesome write up! Enjoy! xoxoxox

neeraj_only said...

oye hoye!!......life after break up.....pyar ke side effects :P

friends suffer the most in "love-story". we start neglecting friends for someone "special". It's break-up which brings them into the main scheme-of-things again.

btw u did come up with a-lot of positives......shopping and "some-places-unshaved"......and cute butts ....hmmm......really... life after break up has many positives.


IcE MaiDeN said...

hi5 back again!!! lolz.. friends hold u thru all d shit!! they rock!! :) n yes! life after a breakup is very very enjoyable!!! hehe :)

CrAzY fReAk! said...

hey guys sorry..... but i think its not like this.... its easy to say, but is it true!! break up is not done out of joy, so given a choice, no one will like to go in for a breakup, even after knowin all da advntg!! Love is all about livin life simple & it gives more joy than all the advntg u mentioned!!
i will not congratulate you for breakin up, like ohters, but i will pray that u get back the lost love in your life ASAP!! May GOD bless you with this beautiful feeling again, called -LOVE!!

@common man,

yes i knw d end of a relationship is never easy.. bt its always best to end somethng tht has no future and somethng that makes u lose ur identity as a person. wudnt u agree that its the most beautiful feeling to fall in love wid the RIGHT person... tab tak if u meet someone who wasnt meant to be, then i feel its best to make urself a better person learning out of the experiences. :)

damn girl what an attitude!! CHEERS!!:):):) i kinda like u better now..keep up the healthy attitude k...i had er..for want of a better word i'll just use fun in reading this post. hell loads better than the weepy stufff!!!!

Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by any affection. Keep your solitude. The day, if it ever comes, when you are given true affection there will be no opposition between interior solitude and friendship, quite the reverse. It is even by this infallible sign that you will recognize it.

IcE MaiDeN said...


aww.. yeashh i knw.. this is SO much better than d weepy stuff.. lolz. :P :D

Karan said...

Anupam Gupta said...

Meeli said...

i agree with u dear...we almost share these things. one more thing i want to add..when bf was there in our lifes we thought they are our weakness.....i thought i am very emotional gal...loneliness was my biggest fear....but see i haven proved that i can live a very happy life widout him...my all fear gone...and actually i m feeling free like a bird for whom sky is d limit...
i think break up teaches u a lot about you...n yes FRIENDS are most precios gifts for us...
