Breaking up is always hard but it definitely changes over time. Here is a comparison on what it is like at ages 18, 25 and 30.


When your S.O. says, “We need to talk”:


At 18: You hyperventilate until you pass out.

At 25: You kinda suspect what’s coming but would rather wait to hear it out.

At 30: Oh, you know.

Where you meet:


At 18: Your parents’ house.

At 25: In a coffee shop.

At 30: “Uhm, did I just get dumped via text?”

Before you meet:


At 18: You practice all you need to say so you don’t forget key parts.

At 25: You go in with an open mind about being able to talk and discuss things.

At 30: You relax with liquid courage.

After meeting up:


At 18: You cry.

At 25: You cry.

At 30: You cry.

Social networks:


At 18: You make sure everyone knows what’s up.

At 25: You spill your feelings into loooooong emails to close friends.

At 30: Nope.

What your friends say:


At 18: “You”ll find someone better — he wasn’t worth it.”

At 25: “I’ll introduce you to someone you’ll absolutely love.”

At 30: “Life goes on.”



At 18: You keep everything in a box, including that dirty T-shirt they left in your room that one time.

At 25: You keep only what’s important.

At 30: You get rid of everything. Time for a new life.

Time it takes to get over the breakup:


At 18: You probably already have a replacement.

At 25: More than what you’d like to admit.

At 30: You know that in a way, you’ll never get over it.
