The Blind Leading The Blind: Adele Overdose

WORDS M.K Smith

 I can’t stop listening to ‘Someone Like You’ by Adele and thinking about my ex. We had a nasty breakup a long while ago but I’m still not over it. How does one get over an ex and just move on from heartbreak?

If there was a fool proof, safety guaranteed way of getting over someone who broke your heart then I wouldn’t have spent so many hours curled up under blankets self-indulgently listening to “I Know It’s Over” by The Smiths on repeat. The only things that help the hurt are time, good company, and burning some effigies.

Though, you do have to ask yourself why you’re still thinking about this person. Do you actually miss them? Or the way they made you feel? Most relationships that culminate in horrific breakups usually weren’t that swell beforehand. It’s easy to view the ghosts of relationships past with nostalgia, but your relationship ended for a reason.

Look, sometimes it lasts in love, and sometimes it hurts instead. I have no doubt that you’ll find someone else, I’m not sure what their likeness to your ex will be, but that doesn’t matter. If you don’t find someone else, it’s probably because you keep listening to ‘Someone Like You’, cuz that shit got old fast. So don’t despair, it won’t feel like this forever. If a broken heart is everlasting, then it’s probably a quite serious medical condition so please get that checked. I wish nothing but the best for you.

The Blind Leading the Blind: Bad Girlfriends Club

WORDS M.K Smith

I’ve just started a serious relationship with a girl I’ve been in love with for a while. However, the relationship is being strained because all of her male friends are in love with her… they’ve been talking about me behind my back to her and trying to convince her she doesn’t really love me. I don’t know if she is doing enough to stick up for me and I get worried that maybe she’ll decide she likes one of them more than me. Please tell me what to do!

Well, I suppose congratulations are in order for being one of those smug bastards in the throes of a new love. It kind of sucks that your mellow is being harshed by some over-zealous dudes with no boundaries, but it seems like the odds are certainly tilted in your favour. If she’s really as desirable as you claim, I’m sure she would have had her chance with these guys already. And do you know what? She chose you, and she chose you for a reason. So calm your farm because the last time I checked hyper-insecure’ hasn’t graced any lists for the top ten desirable traits in a boyfriend. The situation would be helped immensely if she told these guys to shove off, because leading them on will only make them more bitter and spiteful than they already are. They’re obviously pretty shit friends if they’re trying to sabotage her relationship and she needs to let them down gently, or just quit letting them get away with being petty jerks. The solution to this one  relies on her having a spine, and you being confident in your own self worth.

P.S, how did she get all of these guys to fall in love with her? (Please send an email heavily detailing her modus operandi). I’m kidding. (Am I?)
