A break-up is one of the most dreaded experiences for both men and women. Some people in order to avoid it have continued in some wrong and horrible relationships because they believe that staying is fairly better than breaking-up! However in most cases, when the much dreaded unavoidable happens, both guys and ladies indulge in some obscure and funny things in order to weather and swim through the storm of an emotional heartbreak. Here are some that are exclusive to girls…Read and be blessed.

1. THEY TURN STALKERS

Some girls when hit with a breakup, turn stalking experts and FBI agents. Although this is also applicable to the guys, it’s most common among the ladies. Some use different sims to put calls through to him and would immediately hang up or remain silent when he picks and maybe says “hello”. My elder sister is very guilty of this. She may also track the guy’s movements and activities secretly and from a safe distance to find out the girl who took her place or to observe if the breakup is affecting him in any way or not.

2. PLAYING SOULFUL DEPRESSING MUSIC

They’ll play slow tempo heartbreak songs like Westlife and watch more romantic movies, lie in their bed and cry their eyes out.

3. THEY REPENT AND SUDDENLY BECOME ‘BORN AGAIN’!

“Naija babes I hail o! una guilty for this one die!!” Most ladies seeks solace in religion after a bad breakup. The unrighteous ones suddenly become righteous. She will be present and active in almost all the activities in the church and will be praying for God to grant her heart desire of a new and better guy and when a good guy comes along, religion is abandoned again.

4. THEY HANG OUT MORE

Girls hang out more when hit by a breakup, you’ll see them almost everywhere. They do their best to put up the most lovely and enthusiastic spirit. This is especially if their ex might be anywhere around the corner. Whenever they’re sure he’ll be present at the event, they dress to kill just to make him realize what he’s actually missing – she rarely stays at home to avoid depression.

5. THEY BECOME RELATIONSHIP OR LOVE EXPERTS

After a bad breakup, most ladies think that they automatically qualify to be love experts. You’ll find them jumping into any discussion concerning relationship-related matters. They’ll give advice and tutor others as issues correlating with relationship suddenly becomes their favourite discussion. E.g “Sister Mary, please don’t date him ooh, I’ve seen many of his types”.

6. THEY DELETE HIS NUMBER

It’s ridiculous that even though all girls have the digits of their lovers offhand, they still go ahead deleting them. This is always the first move as their idiosyncrasy at the moment is that of forgetting everything about him. The funny thing is they’ll always remember it, even after a decade.

7. THEY BECOME “SINGLE-HOOD” ACTIVISTS

Don’t be surprised to see things like. #teamsingleandnotsearching, #teamallmenarethesame, #singleforever, #teamsingleandlovingit, #Teamallguysarethesame#…and so on.

Their sense of empowerment is sometimes ridiculous. Nairaland girls are guilty of this, “I no wan mention name, and guys if you fall for them in this period, na your money I pity!”

8. TRIES TO MAKE HIM JEALOUS.

Ladies do crazy things to get their guys’ attention after having an emotional heartbreak or outright breakup. Some will go get a new guy just to make him jealous and some will intentionally bump into him with a dress to kill. They’ll take selfies with the guy and upload them online just to make him jealous. The funny thing is, the guy she is showing off, she doesn’t love but only trying to get back at her ex. “If you’re that guy, omo, I pity you.”

9. THEY DASH INTO A NEW RELATIONSHIP

A lot of girls who are unable to handle their situation often resort to falling unconditionally into the arms of any guy who’ll be willing to open his. They do this to fill the wearying vacuum left in their lives by their ex. They flirt around those previously pending friend requests, seeking to be noticed and called in. However, this is not always one of the best options as they get to break up once again once they heal to the extent that allows them to think clearly and reasonably.

10. THEY TRY THE UNNATURAL – LESBIANISM

In extreme cases, when a lady goes wild as a result of an emotional heartbreak, she may resort to giving the same-sex relationship a try. They get so angry with the opposite sex to the extent that they wouldn’t want to have anything to do with them in terms of romantic relationships. They just believe all men are heart-breakers, so why not try a woman’s love?
