We’re all familiar with the image of the post-breakup woman. If we look at her portrayal in TV shows, we’ll likely see a sobbing female surrounded by tissues and empty ice cream cartons, hysterically comfort-eating her way into oblivion.
In reality, we girls don’t sit around crying and eating unhealthy food after a breakup: on the contrary, while we might get a little sad, we ladies see it as a fresh start, an opportunity to focus on ourselves and enjoy single life.
Forget the clichés: here are five things that a woman will actually do when she breaks up with a man.
Have A Big Night Out
The go-to solution for banishing the post-breakup blues: dress up, down a few cocktails and enjoy a big night out with your closest friends. Getting out of the house is always a great idea for giving perspective, meeting new people and enjoying your newfound freedom as a single lady, and who can resist checking out the talent at the local bar or club?
When you’re settled into a relationship, it’s easy to grow lax in the self-grooming and glam department. Long evenings in front of the TV with a takeaway and the reduced pressure of always looking your best can turn makeup and self-care into a bit of a chore. Not that there’s anything wrong with that but becoming newly single can be a good excuse to start pampering yourself again and embracing your beauty once more.

Try New Things
Once a woman is out of a relationship, she suddenly realizes all the things she wants to do for herself. When you’re in a relationship – happy or otherwise – it’s natural to make adjustments and compromise some of the things you want to do to accommodate the other person. When you’re single, there’s no one else to take into consideration. Girls will join that gym, find new hobbies and start doing all the things that they now have time for as newly single women, and this leads on to our next point…
Have Casual Sex
After a long monogamous relationship, your average 21st century gal is naturally going to want to enjoy a bit of frivolous flirting, and everything else that comes with that. Casual, no-strings sex is one of the best parts of becoming newly single. Enjoy feeling your sexiest and sassiest, without the commitment of a relationship – you go girl!
Reconnect with Friends
When you’re in a relationship, it’s all too easy for time with friends to take a backseat. When your relationship ends, it’s a great opportunity to reconnect with people you haven’t seen much of since you started seeing the guy. Single friends are great as now you can go out together, but all good friends – single or otherwise – will stick by you when you need them the most, and that’s a lovely, reassuring outcome for any newly single lady. Relationships are often temporary; friendships are forever – treasure them.
No two women are the same, and everyone deals with breakups in different ways. If it’s a messy breakup, the healing time may be longer than a straightforward one, and of course a lot can depend on who does the actual dumping.
However a woman chooses to deal with the split, it’s all part of a natural process. Break-ups make you stronger, and open doors to new possibilities. Focus on yourself, enjoy looking your best, and embrace this new chapter in your life as the fabulous woman you are!
