Rule 1: Don’t dress like a slut.
I took my breakup with my high school boyfriend pretty hard. I was in my freshman year of college and still believed a long-distance relationship with a guy who had hair like Dylan McKay from the original Beverly Hills 90210 was going to result in happily ever-after. How did I compensate after our breakup? With a shopping spree filled with tube tops, backless shirts, and skirts shaped like napkins. It was the Nineties, so you can’t judge me for the backless shirts. You can and should judge me for showing more skin than Miley Cyrus at a MySpace party. The cardinal rule after a breakup is to remember your dignity. No one needs to see what he can’t have anymore.
