The Break-Up Music Guide

Every girl knows that breakups suck, especially if your ex goes to school with you. The only real way to get over a breakup is to go through the three stages. The first stage: sadness, is when you and your beau break up and you can’t help but sit on your couch, cry, and maybe start hanging with two new guys, Ben and Jerry. However, after a few days or weeks you’re already onto the next stage, anger or what I like to call “the Taylor Swift stage.” You want to reek havock on your ex’s life, burn all the pictures of you two together, and show him what he is missing. Finally, after the tears are gone and the craziness, I mean anger is out, you are onto the third stage, moving on. This is the stage were you are a new woman who is single and ready to mingle and when you look back on your breakup you laugh because you don’t know what you ever saw in your ex. Here are some of our favorite songs from every genre for your break up needs! Turn up your ipod or radio and tune out the heart break!
