“Once they’re not obligated to give a shit about you, don’t be surprised if they don’t. Even if they say they want to be friends, giving a rat’s ass about your feelings may well be extremely low on their priority list.

43. If you suspect that she might take it poorly, be sure you have all your stuff moved out.

“If you suspect that she might take it poorly, be sure you have all your stuff moved out before you break the bad news to her. Otherwise things might happen to it. Like, piled on her back patio, doused in gasoline and lit on fire.”


44. Make sure that when you’re dating someone, you carve out time to be with your friends..

“Make sure that when you’re dating someone, you carve out time to be with your friends. Even in the absolute best relationships, you need to have your own circle of people separate from the relationship.

Plus, if the relationship ends on a bad note, you have a support structure (friends) as you transition into single life and all of the free time that comes with it.

“Just cause you’re really really good friends with someone of the opposite sex doesn’t mean you should date them.”
