If there's one good thing about a breakup it's that at least the stress of the relationship goes away, but in the case of us, we're broke up AND you're still here antagonizing me. I'm taking it at both ends.

***

I gained a pound. Oops. Not really worried about it though. I think I gained it only because I ate carrots with cottage cheese and apple sauce last night. Today I had yogurt and some hot chocolate. That's it. I really don't have an appetite but I have to work at 4 so I'll be running around for hours. I need some sort of energy. I've realized there's one good thing about a breakup. You shrink away with the pain...

***

The only good thing about a "break-up" or the impending one - utter turmoil I feel emotionally, that is - is that now, size 4 pants are getting baggy on me.

***

Breakups SUCK! And it's quite all right to be a lil psycho in these kind of situations.... it's the only good thing about a breakup.

***

Ok... so the only good thing about a breakup is that all of a sudden some songs have a whole new meaning. It's crazy. it could be because I am forced to really pay attention to the lyrics

***

Things will get easier in a little bit of time. The good thing about a breakup is you will have all of this negativity about what she did not do in your former relationship. This is great weight room motivation.

***

The good thing about a break up? Good music.

***

The only good thing about a break-up is that's the only time I write good songs. I can't write for crap when I'm happy, but when I'm sad the words just happen.

***

More good things and bad things about breaking up! ...

One good thing about a break-up is not having to spend as much – good for the money-saving goal. Also trying to make more gifts this year. Hand knit hats & scarves for all!

***

One good thing about a break up is you have a valid excuse to spend money on yourself. I'm going out into the city today to wander. It won't be a good idea to sit in my room all day. And since I'll probably start crying randomly, at least if I'm just walking along crying in the city, I'll never see the people again. Wandering campus crying would be awkward.

Over the past month, my life has shattered, and now it's come crashing down around me. But that's okay, you know? Because now I get to start over, pick up the pieces, and reform them into a better picture. And experience has shown me that it's been from the lowest places in my life that I've found the greatest happiness after getting through it. And every time I experience something shattering like this, I come out a smarter, stronger person.

***

The good thing about a breakup is that you will quickly learn who your good friends are and who your great friends are.

***

Well, at least I still have my sense of humor in tact. But that's about all. The good thing about a break up, is what I like to call "the break up diet." Some people overeat when they are stressed and/or depressed. Not me. I'm one of the lucky ones. I starve myself. It's not that I really starve myself, more that I just lose my appetite. Completely. I've already slipped back into my size 6 jeans. I was in an 8. Must look on the bright side!

***

The only good thing about a break up is the 10 lbs you lose in a week.

***

But, the one good thing about a breakup was that he actually could be irrational and selfish and blame Duo for everything, because he sure as hell wasn't thinking about ending things.

***

In my mind the only good thing about a break up was all the hugs and sorrys’ from your friends.

***

The good thing about breaking up with the other person, is that you can get them to go back out with you whenever you want, in most cases.

***

The good thing about almost, kinda, pretty much seeing someone on the side (although, the side of what, really?) is that it reminds you there are other options, and it diverts your attention, sort of weens you off your soon-to-be ex.

***

There's only one good thing about breaking up and that's making up, especially during the holidays.<

***

The only truly good thing about breaking up is the music. Whatever pain and heartbreak you might endure, at least there is an inordinate number of sad, down-on-your-luck, fuck-it-all songs out there to comfort you in your misery. And if you’re like me, you spend a substantial amount of time wallowing in it before moving on. What better way to wallow and embrace the pain than to throw on some lonely sad bastard shit and wile the night away?

***

More good things and bad things about breaking up! ...

Heh well I broke up with my girlfriend two weeks back.... which means I don't have to pay $300 rent a fortnight anymore, along with other expenses!!!

***

“I know one good thing about breaking up,” said the bartender, patting his flat stomach. “And that’s going back to the gym.”

***

The good thing about breaking up is that you can see what didn't work and what did. Then you can learn what you want in the next relationship. A bit deep and meaningful but that's what I think.

***

That's the good thing about breaking up with someone you crazy about... looking for someone else to be crazy about and crazy about you

***

The one good thing about breaking up is getting the chance to post it on the internet. thank-you! for making it possible

***

Yeah, over the past few weeks I've learned that if there's one good thing about breaking up, it's that I don't have to look at Buffalo 66 sitting on the shelf anymore. I hate that movie.

***

I think that over the last year or so we lost each other. I was battling issues at work and sinking into a depression. He was overwhelmed with the amount of business that his own company had. We settled into a rut. We began to drift apart and lost sight of what was really important - each other. It's amazing how a break-up can give you such clarity - how I can now see what's important.

***

The good thing about breaking up, is now you can go out with someone else, who you will most certainly like better than the girl you broke up with.

***

There's only one good thing about breaking up and that's devising up...

***

But ya know the good thing about breaking up is that you find someone else that you cant get enough of.

***

The good thing about breaking up is what you do is legal...I see it as a free pass to play!!!!

***

When someone cute flirts with you, you don't have to pretend it didn't happen.

***

Choosing what to do with your money/time/home/life/location without having to worry about what the other person thinks/wants.

***

Not having to answer to anyone, or call if you're not going to be home right after work, or pick up after yourself if you don't want to.

***

The fabulousness of being able to soak in a bath with a glass of wine and good book without any interruptions... let's face it, it's bliss!

***

It is very hard to move on or have "me time" though with the other person still living with ya.

***

Friends with "benefits" can be good.

***

Not having to set the alarm and wake him up, regardless of how long it takes.... not having to choose his family's Christmas and birthday gifts........ and finally, being able to use two syllable words without apologizing for being smart...

***

The best thing about being single....hmmm there are so many things that are great including watching what you want to on TV, taking up the whole bed, spending hours lazing in the bath with a good book and one of my personal favs going where you want when you want with who you want without having to check or answer to anyone

***

FREEEEDOOOMMMMMM!!!

***

Can eat what ever the heck I want without hearing "You're not gonna eat that are you?". Yipee !!!! And sleeping diagonally across my bed!

***

More good things and bad things about breaking up! ...

Being able to cook or not to cook depending on how I feel at the time.

***

Plus not feeling guilty about retail therapy!!

***

Not having to hide any new clothes or shoes and having to 'pretend' that they were in the wardrobe all along! "Had them for years dear, honest!"

***

I don't have to rush home from work to start supper. I can stop by a friends house and stay as long as I want without feeling stressed about what I really need to be doing at home. I don't have to clean up behind anyone but myself. And best of all I don't have to constantly put the seat down or clean the rim as often. hee hee

***

Let's see. The only dirty clothes I pick up are my clothes and my little girls. I control the remote, I control the computer w/web-cam thank you. I can go on DATING sites, go to San Francisco or Timbuktu for that matter without someone asking me "where've you been"? I get to make male friends without someone getting jealous. And not one person telling how to raise my little girl!

***

Companionship is nice if you want that, but in my experiences, friends last longer than boys

***

Its so nice to be able to lay in bed of a morning and f@rt really loud, without having to get up and go to the bathroom to camouflage it. LOL... or belch in a way so that the walls shake. Don't have to hide the stinky shoes. or use odor eaters. Or hide the stiff as a board socks. OHHH oHH wait that's my ex I'm thinking of.. sorry . LOL

***

Yes, reading in bed, hogging all the covers, spending as long as you like in the bath, SNORING without guilt, being able to switch the TV off & read a book without fear of being called antisocial.... it's all GOOD

And..... putting the rubbish out and realizing that it really isn't rocket science...lol

***

Best thing(s) about being single:

Being able to come home from a night out, just as the paper-boy makes his delivery and not having someone ask where the hell have you been.

Being able to f*rt without having to blame the dog.

Being able to watch the footie and scream at the ref without that immortal female question "Why"

Course there are disadvantages too, if I think of any I'll let you know.

***

I like being responsible for only myself and my kids. I'm pretty independent, so I like being able to pretty much go where and when I want to, without reporting back to someone. I like being able to toss a picnic in the van, wake the kids early and just ride until we find a suitable picnic spot, and not have to worry about a "schedule" - at least on the weekends!

And I LOVE being able to read a book in bed at night.

***

I can look like crap whenever I want, I can talk to complete strangers, and I only have to cook and do laundry for myself.

***

I get a pay check now instead of an allowance.

***

You don't have to worry about what to wear....just go around in you birthday suit.

***

Definitely the TV remote, also the house rarely gets dirty without anyone else around.

***

You can b-r-e-a-t-h-e without worrying about anything.............ladies and gentleman, I have truly exhaled.......

***

There is too much BS in a relationship sometimes, on your own, it's just you and your faults and your habits and it's your life .... being single have been some of the happiest days of my life.

***

You can hog all the covers you want!

***

No bickering over what movie to rent!

***

I can be as friendly as I want and not be accused of "flirting".

***

TV remote control all to myself!
