Cannot relate much on this but i hope these will help those still in pain. This would probably work in ladies but for gents….i guess not for all
Shopping and cleaning are my two main forms of therapy any time something goes sideways in my life. I may not always buy things but the distraction of looking at new, exciting, and fun things helps to make me move out of my funk some. I’ve been married for 10 years so hopefully I won’t ever have to use for breakups ? but hopefully this helps someone still in the dating scene.

Going shopping after a break up seems like a great way to get your mind off of the heartbreak — especially if you go out with friends who can help lift your spirits.
I did a lot of retail therapy after my divorce from my first husband. He didn’t approve of me wearing dresses or anything at all revealing so I was sure to get all the sexy dresses I could!
Anyone can use a retail therapy! Thanks for sharing

The most important part is going out and shopping with friends. Your close friends will help you go through almost anything.

Hi Jill, 🙂
I agree 🙂 and I know this works cuz I did this every time not only in a break-up, just any time when I’m unhappy…
It’s great what you do by sharing your experience with this world. This could help so many people.
Happy blogging 🙂
As if I really needed a new reason to shop! I do agree after a breakup shopping is totally necessary. New person new me new clothes!
I tend to be impulsive when I go shopping. I kind of isolated myself but it helped me be occupied for a bit.
Nothing breaks the sadness like spending money on new clothes.
I have heard that women like to get their hair cut or restyled after a break-up, but never to go shopping. Haha, that’s a new one.

Hahaha I did that when I broke up with my x.
