Breaking up is hard—there’s no denying it. Of course, there are a lot of ways to deal with the heartbreak that follows—listening to “Marvin’s Room” by Drake, cutting your own bangs, or partying hard—but some people like to use humor to cope.
These are hilarious people who are dealing with their breakup in the best way possible: laughing through the pain.
It Happens To The Best Of Us
Okay, so most of us have never made the “mistake” of liking that many photos at once, but we all have stalked our ex or their new significant other and accidentally liked a photo or two by mistake in the process.
Coca-Cola Is Just Rubbing Salt In The Wound
The guy who took this photo explained that his girlfriend, Sara, had recently dumped him. When he was getting lunch a few days later, this coincidentally was the bottle of Coke he was given by the cashier.
Weird Flex, But Okay
I would like to make it clear that, after a breakup, you should probably avoid keeping pictures of your ex, but this especially counts for keeping a physical photo of them in your wallet.
The Cat Is Happy You’re Single Again
Immediately after this guy broke up with his girlfriend, his cat started possessively using her side of the bed again. The cat was sick of not having her regular sleeping spot for months.
This Is Especially Important When I’m Drunk
Day to day, I’m pretty good at keeping myself busy and not thinking about my ex. However, two glasses of wine in, I am ready to recklessly send an “I miss you” text that will only give me more problems.
The True Tragedy Of A Breakup
In my opinion, the really sad part about a breakup isn’t that you’ll never date the person again, but that you’ll never get to pet their dog again or talk to their mom again.
What A Nice Improvement!
After breaking up with her boyfriend, this girl still really loved how she looked in this photo but didn’t want him in the picture, so she photoshopped a tree over him instead.
Sure, when I am dumped by a significant other, I feel a bit bad for a while, but for the most part, I feel a little sorry for them because I am a masterpiece of a human.
Friends Will Always Have Your Back
A few days after breaking up with his girlfriend, this guy received a card from one of his friends with this inside. Not sure about the philosophy behind this one, but the effort is appreciated.
It’s A Beautiful Time
I really do love watching a girl dump her musty, lying boyfriend and then have a glow up where she finds her confidence, wears what she likes, and posts hot pics on the ‘gram.
Sheesh, She Needs To Work On Her Writing
First of all, I have never seen someone send a physical letter to an ex post-breakup. Second of all, that is an absolutely abysmal grade and she should get a tutor.
We Are Not The Same
Although this mom is definitely stepping into some problematic water with this take, I have to admire her commitment to being a petty queen about her divorce—that takes a lot of dedication.
Spa Day With The Homies!
This guy bought a Groupon couples massage for his girlfriend’s birthday, only for her to dump him before the big day. Of course, he took his best bro to the spa instead.
Soon, He Will Be The Size Of An Action Figure
As a friend, I feel like it’s my duty to expedite my friend’s healing process after a breakup by reminding them of how gross their ex-boyfriend was whenever they start to miss him.
They Must Know I Am Thriving
Do I know that it’s pretty immature to post things on my social media, like Instagram stories of me having fun, just for my ex to see? Yeah. Will I stop doing it? No.
Sometimes, It’s A Great Thing
Have you ever seen someone you care about break up with their significant other and literally cheered because you hated the guy? Sure, some breakups are sad, but some warrant a little celebration.
…As She Should
I’m happy that, despite their rocky past, these two people were able to find their way back to each other, but I also think she deserves to keep saying this forever. I mean, who breaks up via text?
It Really Can Be That Simple
After breaking up, most people will reflect upon their past relationship and the circumstances that made things fall apart. Sometimes there were external issues out of your control, but most of the time, it comes down to a person sucking.
This Guy Really Cannot Catch A Break
The guy who sent this snap had broken up with his girlfriend, broken his neck, and been diagnosed with testicular cancer all within the same year, but at least he still has a sense of humor about it.
Calling My Priest ASAP
To the person who dates my ex next: he tends to play devil’s advocate a lot during arguments, which is so totally necessary because he is, in fact, the devil himself.
