8 Empowering Breakup Songs...

25 July 2014

Roomie was my 3rd boyfriend.  We then went on to dump each other and marry our exes: each other.

Okay, I'm sorry.  That was obnoxious.  Don't blame me.  That's actually Roomie's joke.

So, that means I broke up with 2 boyfriends before him.  Well, sorta.
I started dating my 1st boyfriend at the age of 19.  He dumped me for another girl two years later.  
I started dating boyfriend #2, a dude who would eventually become my best friend's ex-BIL.  He didn't support my pursuit of education, so we broke up, and I got back together with boyfriend #1.  
Well, THAT was a mistake because he had turned into a really possessive and controlling dude.  He demanded that I stopped talking to the guys in my classes, which was really hard considering I was the only girl in most of those classes.  Engineering school.  Need I say more?
Anyway, when I went on a weekend camping trip with some friends, he proceeded to stalk my parents demanding to know where I had gone.  So, I dumped him.... for Roomie.

Did you get all that?  Okay, awesome.  

So, technically, I kinda got dumped once.  Really.  Go back and read it again.  I'll wait.
Back?  Groovy.

Yeah, I didn't deal with the breakup very well.  I didn't think I was ever going to recover.  He was my first boyfriend!  (And the guy my mother convinced me I should be marrying.)  To my muddled, innocent brain, I screwed up and lost the only love I was ever going to know!  OMG, I was NEVER going to find love ever, ever, EVER again!

Yeah, whatever.  After a few Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive", I was all bouncy back and "kick that guy's ass to the curb!"

Seriously, that song saved me. Well, that and a couple of tubs of Haagen Daz.

Anyway, I wished I had known of more songs like that back then.  These days, we have many more awesome "I deserve better than you, jerk!" songs.  Fortunately, I won't be needing them myself, but in case my babies run into their own jerks/jerkettes when they eventually enter the dating scene at the age of 30, they'll have any of my faves to choose from...

Okay, that's my list.  Which songs would you add?  What's on YOUR list?
