The 9 people your friends become after a break-up


As friends, you’re required to be there for the dumpee, no matter how much their personality changes in the process. It’s tough but it’s good karma so stay strong and remember, it’s only a phase…hopefully.

1. The Drama Queen/King
Things like “we were soooo good together,” when they clearly were not, as well as remembering things not quite the way they happened are key to your mate becoming ‘The Drama King/Queen’.


2. The Bitter One
They can no longer see anything good in the world and the relationship itself has become the reason why everything is just so terrible. They will belittle everything and anything they can on the way to becoming the grinch. Pull them back and show them that there is hope, in the form of tequila.

3. The Drunken Mess
Okay, so many of us head straight to the bar when a relationship breaks but this person takes it a step further with stained clothes, lack of showering, constant drinking, Adele on repeat and lots of crying. 

4. Gender Hater
Their girlfriend/boyfriend has dumped them, therefore all women/men are absolute bitches/bastards.

5. The Hopeless One
Nothing makes sense, the world is a dire place. While it may feel like the worst, the break-up doesn’t mean that they’re condemned to being forever alone. It’s just hard for them to see  that they’re going to be fine when their heart has recently been broken. It will fade away though, but you’ll probably have to motivate them to go looking for someone new.

6. The Recluse
Hiding behind curtains and not keeping any form of respectable hours. Respect is something they will probably lose for themselves for a while. Trying to feel something, anything, by any means necessary. Keep an eye on them now that you have identified the symptoms.

7. The Black Sheep
You haven't seen them for the entirety of their relationship but now that's it's over, they're back. 

8. The Cray Cray
Nightvision goggles and an unhealthy amount of Facebook stalking mean that this one needs a close eye indeed. 


9. Eat, Sleep, Break Up, Repeat
This person has the ability to move on at almost record speed and will probably have had a LOT of relationships.
