#1. A life-changing moment for me was the realization that sometimes the healthiest relationship you can have with someone (or something) is none at all. - Author: Steve Maraboli
Breakups quotes by Steve Maraboli
#2. I knew this for a fact. Little by little, the ache to see him, to hear him would disappear. Little by little I'd forget how his arms felt, how his fingers felt, how his lips felt..the sound of his voice, the intensity of his gaze, all of it. Trace by trace it would slip from my mind, recede into foggy memory. The painful haze that dulled my present would melt into the past. Maybe not all the way, maybe there would be a few scars. Maybe I'd be different, but I'd be me again. Little by little. - Author: Jennifer DeLucy
Breakups quotes by Jennifer DeLucy
#3. There is still something worse than a breakup, that is keeping the other person in your heart even though you are no longer together. I mean, maybe it's a test, if you want to understand someone, really want to understand someone, you should try to divide at least once, only once. - Author: Wahid Bhat
Breakups quotes by Wahid Bhat
#4. We do express our emotions, our reactions to events, breakups and infatuations, but the way we do that - the art of it - is in putting them into prescribed forms or squeezing them into new forms that perfectly fit some emerging context. That's part of the creative process, and we do it instinctively; we internalize it, like birds do. And it's a joy to sing, like the birds do. - Author: David Byrne
Breakups quotes by David Byrne
#5. Could tell you a lot, but you've gotta be true to the code. Make it one for my baby and one more for the road. - Author: Johnny Mercer
Breakups quotes by Johnny Mercer
#6. One of the pitfalls of having an ex-boyfriend is that people still pair you together in their memories, and sooner or later someone's bound to mention him. And now that it has happened ... I can't say I feel nothing. I don't think it's possible to get royally dumped by the only boy I've ever done it with, let alone loved, and then feel nothing when he's brought up in conversation. - Author: Daria Snadowsky
Breakups quotes by Daria Snadowsky
#7. It's difficult for me to feel that a solid page without the breakups of paragraphs can be interesting. I break mine up perhaps sooner than I should in terms of the usage of the English language. - Author: A.E. Van Vogt
Breakups quotes by A.E. Van Vogt
#8. I don't know if you noticed but I have been trying, too hard, to be myself since the day I lost you. - Author: Nessie Q.
Breakups quotes by Nessie Q.
#9. You've got loves of your life and breakups of your life, that kind of thing. They leave a mark. It stays with you, a bad aftertaste. - Author: Jules Asner
Breakups quotes by Jules Asner
#10. In the sea of my emotions, his presence is like a pearl in the oyster. Very hard to locate, yet very precious and still beautiful. - Author: Mehek Bassi
Breakups quotes by Mehek Bassi
#11. But first the past. Lily and Keith broke up because Lily wanted to act like a boy. That was the heart of the matter, really: girls acting like boys was in the air, and Lily wanted to try it out. So they had their first big row (its theme, ridiculously, was religion), and Lily announced *a trial separation*. The words came at him like a jolt of compressed air: such trials, he knew, were almost always a complete success. After two days of earnest misery, in his terrible room in the terrible flat in Earls Court, after two days of *desolation*, he phoned her and they met up, and tears were shed--on both side of the café table. She told him to be evolved about it. - Author: Martin Amis
Breakups quotes by Martin Amis
#12. It definitely sometimes feels like a suit that I wish I could zip off. But I don't feel bad about any of the things I've gone through, whether it's divorce or breakups or anything like that, because that's all part of the life journey, and I have those experiences just like anyone else. And I think it deepens what you tap into creatively. - Author: Reese Witherspoon
Breakups quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#13. You know that saying about how you don't know what you have until it's gone? I already did know what I had, and now that she's gone, I know even more. - Author: A.S. King
Breakups quotes by A.S. King
#14. This Fucking Idiot Apologize For Everything - Author: Nihal Aame
Breakups quotes by Nihal Aame
#15. Life is a beautiful journey, full of joy and pain
You never know when it will end, don't let a moment pass in vain ...
In the whole ruckus of life, nothing had I gained,
I just wanted freedom, no more did I wanted to be chained ... - Author: Mehek Bassi
Breakups quotes by Mehek Bassi
#16. Breakups are still uncomfortable, period, and especially when you really are in love with somebody. They are not the easiest things to deal with, and once you break up, you're trying to get used to not being with that person. - Author: Sevyn Streeter
Breakups quotes by Sevyn Streeter
#17. Humanity had chosen the land over the sea millennia ago, and sometimes - when she let her mind wander, when she was romanticizing what she did and how she did it - she thought the sea still held a grudge. Breakups were never easy, and while humanity was hot and fast and had had plenty of time to get over it, the oceans were deep and slow, and for them all change had happened only yesterday. The seas did not forgive, and they did not welcome their wayward children home. - Author: Mira Grant
Breakups quotes by Mira Grant
#18. I feel like Amy wanted people to believe she really was perfect. And as we got to be friends, I got to know her. And she wasn't perfect. You know? She was brilliant and charming and all that, but she was also controlling and OCD and a drama queen and a bit of a liar. Which was fine by me. It just wasn't fine by her. She got rid of me because I knew she wasn't perfect. - Author: Gillian Flynn
Breakups quotes by Gillian Flynn
#19. Betrayals shatters illusions... It breaks your heart, but clears your vision. - Author: Steve Maraboli
Breakups quotes by Steve Maraboli
#20. All the same, it strikes me as unfair that I still have to defend myself against her moral judgements. My continuing need for her approbation is pathetic. Twice now I have stopped myself on the street to remonstrate with her, a crazy old coot talking to himself. - Author: Mordecai Richler
Breakups quotes by Mordecai Richler
#21. Once fallen in true love, a person can't really fall out of it, no matter what. How much ever you try to hate your better half, you'll end up falling more instead. Some part of him will always reside in your heart. - Author: Mehek Bassi
Breakups quotes by Mehek Bassi
#22. My life is not a waiting period for your return;
I live my life for myself, not for you. - Author: Luffina Lourduraj
Breakups quotes by Luffina Lourduraj
#23. You don't have any control over anyone's feelings.

You can't make your parents feel proud of you.
You can't make anyone like you.
You can't make anyone love you.

You can make it easier for them, by sacrificing your time and energy, but you cannot MAKE THEM, you can only make it easier for them - and yet again, what have you gained? Nothing. You're gambling. Putting trust coins into a slot machine hoping that love comes out. - Author: M. Kirin
Breakups quotes by M. Kirin
#24. If they don't walk away, we have to walk away, and sometimes we do it crying. - Author: Donna Lynn Hope
Breakups quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#25. The grass is often no greener on the other side, so stick it out and see if you can grow up within the relationship. Find happiness and emotional independence within yourself before placing unreasonable and often unexpressed expectations on your spouse. - Author: Malti Bhojwani
Breakups quotes by Malti Bhojwani
#26. I KNEW IT WAS OVER

when tonight you couldn't make the phone ring
when you used to make the sun rise
when trees used to throw themselves
in front of you
to be paper for love letters
that was how i knew i had to do it

swaddle the kids we never had
against january's cold slice
bundle them in winter
clothes they never needed
so i could drop them off at my mom's
even though she lives on the other side of the country
and at this late west coast hour is
assuredly east coast sleeping
peacefully

her house was lit like a candle
the way homes should be
warm and golden
and home
and the kids ran in
and jumped at the bichon frise
named lucky
that she never had
they hugged the dog
it wriggled
and the kids were happy
yours and mine
the ones we never had
and my mom was

grand maternal, which is to say, with style
that only comes when you've seen
enough to know grace

like when to pretend it's christmas or
a birthday so
she lit her voice with tiny
lights and pretended
she didn't see me crying

as i drove away
to the hotel connected to the bar
where i ordered the cheapest whisky they had

just because it shares your first name
because they don't make a whisky
called baby
and i only thought what i got
was what
i ordered

i - Author: Daphne Gottlieb
Breakups quotes by Daphne Gottlieb
#27. When we are in love, we are convinced nobody else will do. But as time goes, others do do, and often do do, much much better. - Author: Coco J. Ginger
Breakups quotes by Coco J. Ginger
#28. True love has a habit of coming back. - Author: Turcois Ominek
Breakups quotes by Turcois Ominek
#29. No. No break. We don't need a break. I'm not perfect, but I get it. I can't see you run away from me again. So we stop this. We're all in, because there is no other option for me. You're my mate. You're it for me. You have to trust me. - Author: Aileen Erin
Breakups quotes by Aileen Erin
#30. Whatever I learned,
Whatever I knew,
Seems like those faded years of childhood that flew,
Away in some dilemma,
Always in some confusion,
The purpose of this life,
Seems like an illusion! - Author: Mehek Bassi
Breakups quotes by Mehek Bassi
#31. I still love him. And here's the worst part. I want him back. - Ree - Author: Susane Colasanti
Breakups quotes by Susane Colasanti
#32. I am a diamond in the rut. A diamond to an untrained eye looks like a rock stone. So men will kick it around on the ground. It takes a man with an expert eye for fine Jewelry to notice its worth. Do not feel bad when men treat you like the little boys in Africa who gave away stones in exchange for candy. The hungry boys thought they were getting something better but had exchange wealth for a sugar high. Some men will do that. Exchange a valuable woman for the transient high of another. The boys didn't know better and so do some of these men. They don't know your worth. - Author: Crystal Evans
Breakups quotes by Crystal Evans
#33. I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay - Author: Sara Evans
Breakups quotes by Sara Evans
#34. I'll turn on the TV or look at a magazine, and it's like, 'Who is this person?' And you find out they are from '16 and Pregnant,' and I'm like, 'Really? They're celebrities now?' You read about them on the news having fights and breakups, and I think, 'Well, of course.' - Author: Josh Hopkins
Breakups quotes by Josh Hopkins
#35. Get rid of me, I get it. - Author: Kris Kidd
Breakups quotes by Kris Kidd
#36. High school sweetheart is such an
innocuous-sounding term for something that can tear out your guts. - Author: Daria Snadowsky
Breakups quotes by Daria Snadowsky
#37. We're all the same whoever loves. - Author: Meg Flores
Breakups quotes by Meg Flores
#38. Kyle worked in technology; he knew it would only be a matter of time before the video of Daniela and the A-list actor went viral and spread everywhere. So he did what any pissed-off, red-blooded computer geek would do after catching his girlfriend giving an underwater blowjob to another man: he hacked into Twitter and deleted both the video and her earlier tweet from the site. Then, raging at the world that had devolved so much in civility that 140-character breakups had become acceptable, he shut down the entire network in a denial-of-service attack that lasted two days.

And so began the Great Twitter Outage of 2011.

The Earth nearly stopped on its axis.

Panic and mayhem ensued as Twitter unsuccessfully attempted to counteract what it deemed the most sophisticated hijacking they'd ever experienced. Meanwhile, the FBI waited for either a ransom demand or political statement from the so-called "Twitter Terrorist." But neither was forthcoming, as the Twitter Terrorist had no political agenda, already was worth millions, and had most inconveniently taken off to Tijuana, Mexico to get shit-faced drunk on cheap tequila being served by an eight-fingered bartender named Esteban. - Author: Julie James
Breakups quotes by Julie James
#39. when
he left,
he
packed up
all my
poetry
&
took it
with
him. - Author: Amanda Lovelace
Breakups quotes by Amanda Lovelace
#40. I kept a journal when I was a teenager, so I definitely look back on those to see how I dealt with friends and cliques and getting picked on, or boyfriend breakups. - Author: Sara Shepard
Breakups quotes by Sara Shepard
#41. If you look back on the breakups that you've had, whether it's a long relationship or a one-night stand, it's always awkward. - Author: Patrick Wilson
Breakups quotes by Patrick Wilson
#42. A Good Relationship is like a neat and defined nail art. It requires a lot of concentration, time devotion and patience, to take it to perfection! - Author: Mehek Bassi
Breakups quotes by Mehek Bassi
#43. Titus, have you ever had your heart broken?"
"Oh, son. How could you ask a man who used to play the blues a question like that?"
"How long does it take to go away?"
"A broken heart?"
"Yeah."
"There's no precise formula, Sammy."
"Just give me an estimate."
"A good rule of thumb is at least half the time that you were in love. Or twice the time. It all just depends. - Author: Zack Love
Breakups quotes by Zack Love
#44. The leap of faith is this: You have to believe, or at least pretend you believe until you really believe it, that you are strong enough to take life face on. Eating disorders, on any level, are a crutch. They are also an addiction and illness, but there is no question at all that they are quite simply a way of avoiding the banal, daily, itchy pain of life. Eating disorders provide a little drama, they feed into the desire for constant excitement, everything becomes life-or-death, everything is terribly grand and crashing, very Sturm and Drang. And they are distracting. You don't have to think about any of the nasty minutiae of the real world, you don't get caught up in that awful boring thing called regular life, with its bills and its breakups and its dishes and laundry and groceries and arguments over whose turn it is to change the litter box and bedtimes and bad sex and all that, because you are having a real drama, not a sitcom but a GRAND EPIC, all by yourself, and why would you bother with those foolish mortals when you could spend hours and hours with the mirror, when you are having the most interesting sado-machistic affair with your own image? - Author: Marya Hornbacher
Breakups quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#45. Shoo. Away with you. It's my fault for expecting the extraordinary from the ordinary. - Author: Donna Lynn Hope
Breakups quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#46. If you can hurt, damn right you can heal - Author: Someone
Breakups quotes by Someone
#47. It's never over till it's really over in your mind... - Author: Sandhya Jane
Breakups quotes by Sandhya Jane
#48. Breakups are an interesting thing. They break our hearts and free them at the same time. It's excruciatingly liberating. - Author: Steve Maraboli
Breakups quotes by Steve Maraboli
#49. When I say I'm going to forget you I know it's impossible to forget someone I once knew. What I want is to erase you from my thoughts and purge you from my memories. I'm saying it's what I wish for, not what is or could ever be. - Author: Donna Lynn Hope
Breakups quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#50. The good parts of our relationship felt like a rat walking around and gnawing at the inside of my stomach. - Author: Charles Bukowski
Breakups quotes by Charles Bukowski
#51. I am sorry that our friendship, or whatever name one may give to the obsessive relationship which has bound us together for so many years, should end in this way. This is not the place to utter its elegy. - Author: Iris Murdoch
Breakups quotes by Iris Murdoch
#52. Sometimes we must undergo hardships, breakups, and narcissistic wounds, which shatter the flattering image that we had of ourselves, in order to discover two truths: that we are not who we thought we were; and that the loss of a cherished pleasure is not necessarily the loss of true happiness and well-being. (109) - Author: Jean-Yves Leloup
Breakups quotes by Jean-Yves Leloup
#53. He only felt upset about the breakup because that's what you're supposed to feel. - Author: John Green
Breakups quotes by John Green
#54. Trust this: the universe has got your back. No man can mess with you or take advantage of you for as long as you are fully in touch with your sensuality because there is something in you that every man was designed to reverence each time it is detected. You are a goddess. You command respect without even trying. - Author: Lebo Grand
Breakups quotes by Lebo Grand
#55. We broke so easily. Like it was nothing. Like we were nothing. Does that mean it was never meant to be in the first place? That we were an accident of fate? If we were meant to be, how could we both walk away like that? - Author: Jenny Han
Breakups quotes by Jenny Han
#56. Once you cry it out, it's supposed to vanish ... right? It's not true. It's just ... a little less.
It was the first chink in my brickwall. The wall was still there. And it was still made of bricks,but one, maybe two, had been torn down - Author: Tijan
Breakups quotes by Tijan
#57. That is when time stands still - when you watch the one you love, walk away. - Author: Mallika Nawal
Breakups quotes by Mallika Nawal
#58. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then they leave. And thank God for it. Your problem is, you just can't let this one go. It's over, Groceries. David's purpose was to shake you up, drive you out of that marriage that you needed to leave, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you had to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master and beat it. That was his job, and he did great, but now it's over. Problem is, you can't accept that this relationship had a real short shelf life. You're like a dog at the dump, baby - you're just lickin' at an empty tin can, trying to get more nutrition out of it. And if you're not careful, that can's gonna get stuck on your snout forever and make your life miserable. So drop it. - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Breakups quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#59. I've been thinking that when people break up there's usually a reason, and whatever it is, it's still going to be there even if we do get back together. - Author: Paula Stokes
Breakups quotes by Paula Stokes
#60. Finally I see that it's never been me, just a blanket that keeps you warm. Easily tossed along
when something flashier or someone prettier comes along. Your heart I held so carefully, I see, this was all just a game ... - Author: Coco J. Ginger
Breakups quotes by Coco J. Ginger
#61. When I no longer have your heart
I will not request your body
your presence
or even your polite conversation.
I will go away to a far country
separated from you by the sea
- on which I cannot walk -
and refrain even from sending
letters
describing my pain. - Author: Alice Walker
Breakups quotes by Alice Walker
#62. You break me the hardest,
make me the strongest, and keep me
the softest. - Author: Coco J. Ginger
Breakups quotes by Coco J. Ginger
#63. I think how breakups can bring out the worst in the best people, and part of being upset is mouthing off crap you don't mean. - Author: Daria Snadowsky
Breakups quotes by Daria Snadowsky
#64. All of the emotions that hit people at times like these, all of them, were coursing through us both like a secret we couldn't tell. Because if we said everything we were thinking and feeling right then ... if we laid it all out for one another ... we might not like the way the words strung together. Or the way fear and hope and bitterness and love mashed up into one big mess in the pits of our stomachs. - Author: Laura Anderson Kurk
Breakups quotes by Laura Anderson Kurk
#65. I don't deserve you."
"You're not allowed to say that."
"Why not?"
"It's a breakup line. Unless you're breaking up-"
Jason leaned over and kissed her. The colors of the Roman afternoon suddenly seemed sharper, as it the world had switched to high definition.
"No breakups," he promised. "I may have busted my head a few times, but I'm not that stupid. - Author: Rick Riordan
Breakups quotes by Rick Riordan

something,find out what helps you grow towards fulfilling your satisfaction - Author: Kavipriya Moorthy
Breakups quotes by Kavipriya Moorthy
#67. Breakups usually don't happen down by the river with beautiful lighting. The moment you realize your relationship may be over might happen in Aisle 11 of Rite-Aid and the person you're with has disregarded your feelings and your needs by bringing you the wrong toothbrush again for the fourth time. - Author: Jay Duplass
Breakups quotes by Jay Duplass
#68. I think you forget that I'm still alive. It's like you don't expect me to keep on existing now that I'm not in your life every day. - Author: Rachel Higginson
Breakups quotes by Rachel Higginson
#69. I don't want to talk about it!"
"Fin!" he shouted back. "I'll do the talking. I love you, and by damn I'm not ashamed of it, and you may not have as much baggage as I do, but don't pretend you don't have some with all those losers you attached yourself to."
"Only two!"
"And only two for me, so we're even!"
"Not even close!" They were fifteen feet apart and she was still screaming. "My two were self-centered assholes! Yours were homicidal nutcases!"
"Kenley wasn't homicidal!"
"Close enough. And all I did after my breakups was watch Big Bang reruns and gain five pounds! That's not the same as doing penance for the rest of your life." - Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Breakups quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#70. Whilst lovers: to control her man, a woman uses (the man's access to) her vagina. When ex-lovers: she uses (the man's access to) their kids. - Author: Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Breakups quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#71. What I'm realizing is that a broken heart isn't a solitary event. There is the initial shatter, but then there are repeat breaks, creating more and more shards. A word that reminds you of what you used to have, a smell that reminds you of your dreams, a flashed memory in your mind's eye that reminds you of the betrayal. Each time it's a new injury. Each broken piece takes me further away from ever being whole again. - Author: Angeline Kace
Breakups quotes by Angeline Kace
#72. When you break up with someone, and I'm not talking casual breakups here, it's hard to take the sudden absence of such an important person in your life. It reminded me of when I'd stopped going to school and the weird uneasy feeling I'd gotten afterward, like I was forgetting to do something. My life until that point had pivoted around some form of education, and all of a sudden, it was gone. Homework, classes, running around, and then – bam – nothing but a life of work stretching out before you. No one prepares you for that feeling or even mentions it. You just suddenly have a gap and have to decide how to fill it.

A break up is like that gap, only much, much more painful. One day the person you talked to constantly or did stuff with is just absent. Gone. Poof. And even though I'm not one of those people who has to be in a relationship all the time, I was feeling at a loss. - Author: Lish McBride
Breakups quotes by Lish McBride
#73. I suppose that's the way affairs come to an end. Somebody grabs a fork and stabs the other in the hand. And that's it - Author: Alexander McCall Smith
Breakups quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#74. If love was absent, you would not feel disappointed; you would feel indifferent. - Author: Staci Bartley
Breakups quotes by Staci Bartley
#75. Love doesn't leave you. Not all at once. It creeps back in, making you think it can be another way, that it can still be another way, and you have to remind yourself of the reasons that it probably won't be. - Author: Laura Dave
Breakups quotes by Laura Dave
#76. Dear Fellow Human Being,

You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!

Tell yourself,

You do not deserve this!

All those toxic words you have to listen from people,

All those fears they try to pin on your mind,

All those giggles they aim at your dreams,

All those judgmental stares inspecting your individuality,

All those fingers pointing towards your crude character,

All those shackles that tie your feet to social expectations,

All those cages that do not let your imagination fly free,

Listen deeply, you do not deserve any of it.

My dear fellow human, you do not deserve this hostility.

You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!

Breakups quotes by Ava Ayers
#80. In short, it's almost impossible to "totally done" with someone you once loved with all your heart! - Author: Mwanandeke Kindembo
Breakups quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
#81. The reason why we get the same partners is not because people are the same, but because we pull the dark shadow of past hurts over our eyes and we live the same all over again. We change the actors, but never the masks we give them in our play. - Author: Dragos Bratasanu
Breakups quotes by Dragos Bratasanu
#82. Being alone is better than being your whore. - Author: Lori Jenessa Nelson
Breakups quotes by Lori Jenessa Nelson
#83. What are you so worried about? What makes you think if we got together that we'd even stay together? We wouldn't, most likely. Nothing is permanent, especially in this town. Everything is just another set, waiting to be dismantled and hauled to the dumpster. We'd hook up, have some fun for a few weeks, a few laughs, nothing wrong with that. And then we'd go out separate ways. It would end the way most things end. I'd think about you for a while. Maybe you'd think about me. I'd ache for you a little bit, the way one does when things are over, even things that aren't meant to be. I'd get busy with my life. You'd get busy with yours. We'd say we'd keep in touch. But we never would. And when people asked, we'd say we had a thing once, you and me. One minute it was, and the next it wasn't. It didn't mean it wasn't real. It just wasn't forever. And years later maybe we'd run into each other on the street somewhere, and you'd barely remember my name. And I'd barely remember yours. I'd say to you, hey, remember how you once loved me? And you'd say sorry, not really. And I'd say yeah, me neither. - Author: Paullina Simons
Breakups quotes by Paullina Simons
#84. When I look back on my marriages, or the breakups, sure I know the pain I went through, but that's part of life and it has its own value. - Author: Rita Hayworth
Breakups quotes by Rita Hayworth
#85. There is no need for hyperbole. I did NOT dump you. I peeled your mask off like a banana peel, did not like what was inside, and tossed it in the trash. - Author: Donna Lynn Hope
Breakups quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#86. I shoved him off the snowmobile. He landed on his back in the snow. Love is a brat, you think? No, love id fine. You are the brat, you spoiled, rotten brat! - Author: Rachel Vail
Breakups quotes by Rachel Vail
#87. My mother calls it the pretty hate.
It comes on you like a fever when someone you love up and leaves you with nothing but silence. You turn the hate on yourself as you cannibalize your heart while the rage burns through you and polishes your desperation into a diamond. It is one of the cruelest things in the world to do to another human being.
Don't do that. - Author: Ava Ayers
Breakups quotes by Ava Ayers
#88. He cared less, so they cared more. He said it was beautiful. I knew he was broken.This was his game. - Author: Coco J. Ginger
Breakups quotes by Coco J. Ginger

Breakups quotes by Rollo Tomassi

Breakups quotes by Melissa Rivers
#92. I thought he should have realized sooner that important people don't show up very often, and you should hold on to them when they do. Maybe I was smarter than he was all along, because that was something I'd always known. - Author: Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
Breakups quotes by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal

#94. A year of life spent with someone you love feels like a lifetime. Someone destroys that love it feels like a lifetime is gone. Why do people want to take lifetimes away? - Author: Kensley Hagan
Breakups quotes by Kensley Hagan
#95. If breakups are like deaths, then ex sightings are like seeing a ghost: you feel goose bumps, near loss of bladder control, and the sensation of your heart bursting in your throat. The distinction is that the ex is alive. - Author: Daria Snadowsky

#98. I mean, how sad is it that I needed a freaking Facebook profile to tell me my boyfriend was no longer my boyfriend? As if Facebook is the official record keeper of relationships and you have to confirm all breakups and hookups with this sacred online registrar before you can consider them certified and approved. - Author: Jessica Brody
Breakups quotes by Jessica Brody
#99. Blame your body. The whole biological purpose of existence is to mate, so from the time we hit puberty, our hormones are demanding us to couple up. Maybe it's basic instinct to feel inadequate if you're single."
"That's what sucks. There's so many more interesting things than guys, but guys are what we spend most of our time talking about."
"I think that's just the way it is, though. No matter what we do, it's always more special if there's a boyfriend to share it with."
"Or a best friend. - Author: Daria Snadowsky

#100. I wrote about us while you were away in a notebook that eventually saw the end of us, but the last I wrote about that time was in ink; it was a hurried, angry scrawl reading: Time, that cold bastard, with its nearlys and untils. I think, what a shame. Time should weep for having spent me without you. - Author: Mary-Louise Parker

#105. While gently pushing her towards the dressing room, Lazarus ventured, "Can I ask you something kind of personal?"

Pulling her shirt over her head behind the curtain, and holding her hand out for the corset, she replied, "Anything for you, Laz."

"How are you still friends with him?"

"Can you hook this thing?" Holding the corset on her stomach, Lazarus peeked through the curtain, fingers deftly snapping the twenty hook-and-eye latches. "He saved my life. There are a million reasons to hate him, but there are a million and one reasons to forgive him for his faults."

Twisting to look in the mirror, adjusting her breasts in the tight silk, she continued, "He'll say the worst thing at the worst possible time, except every once in awhile, he says the one most perfect thing that just makes you want to cry from happiness. He knows the exact way you need to be touched at any moment, in any mood, like he's fucking telepathic. He'll make you want to scream when he ignores you, but then you find out he knows your favorite color, your favorite meal, what movie makes you cry and he can list every little thing in the entire world that you hate. And mostly? Well," Turning to face Lazarus and strike a pose, "I just can't fucking stop. - Author: Shannon Noelle Long

#107. As Kevin listed these moments, she could see them with perfect clarity: all the missed cues and deflections, all the abortive moments of intimacy. All this time, she had been thinking of him as the one with commitment issues. Somewhere along the line, she had become an asshole. - Author: Charlie Jane Anders

#109. There is a correlation between one's estimation of the odds of finding a new lover who is, at the least, of the same standard as they one they're currently in a dead relationship with, and, their attempting to revive a dead relationship. - Author: Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Breakups quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#110. There's something so beautiful about people who are heartbroken; they think about how they're feeling much more. I think when you're happy and when you're in love, you don't need to think about it, it's just there. Love is one of those things that is so simple, you don't need to think about it when it's good, you only need to think about it when it's bad, so when music is all that you have and you're lonely or you're missing someone and you write a song that says exactly how you feel, there is sort of a gratification you get from that, it almost helps you move on. - Author: Taylor Swift
Breakups quotes by Taylor Swift
#111. It won't happen yet, Ellen mused, mashing cooked carrots for Jill's lunch. Breakups seldom do. It will unfold slowly, one little tell- tale symptom after another like some awful, hellish flower. - Author: Sylvia Plath

#112. And so I was left with a mantra, a sort of haiku version of our relationship: I don't regret one day I spent with him, nor did I leave a moment too soon. - Author: Padma Lakshmi

#113. Of course she wants him to forget her. The last place she wants to reside is in his thoughts. What an unpleasant place to be. - Author: Donna Lynn Hope
Breakups quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#114. I begin to wonder how different "real" love is from my imaginary affair. In any relationship there's both reality and the perception of reality. As long as I see the other person as smart or sexy or handsome or good and as long as I can hang on to the feeling of loving and being loved then it's real. But somehow we're able to hang on to those feelings and beliefs even when objective reality diverges. Actions don't necessarily alter beliefs and beliefs matter more. Before you fall in love you begin to imagine the other person. You create your lover extrapolating on reality dusting him or her with gold. You embellish to the point of perfection and then fall hard for the image you've made. With all my traveling I may have spent more time imagining than others. But a huge amount of all love takes place in the head. In the middle of any relationship we can spend more time hour for hour thinking about the other person than we spend in his presence. And after any breakup there's no telling how long we might pine for someone. Love itself is in the mind's eye. - Author: Elisabeth Eaves
Breakups quotes by Elisabeth Eaves
#115. You thought it could wait, it was so alive you thought it could wait, that it took no effort because you could laugh, talk, go inside, find pure cream waiting for you. You turned into a dumb motherfucker and switched track, agreed to go work in Japan for six months, backed away as if every day this came your way, every day you could touch, play, connect, make dumb jokes, absurd gestures, feel the fuse between us, what are you calling me now for? I saw it way back, I saw it, I wanted it, waited around for you to see it, what are you calling me now for when i was right in the palm of your hand, damn it? - Author: Kathleen Collins

#118. I knew then that I'd been right. I had felt something changing between us in the weeks before my death - slow and steady - but just hadn't wanted to admit it. A distance had been brewing, all chilly and gray. I'd chosen to sit and watch the storm clouds gather instead of running for cover at the first hint of rain. And I had paid the price for waiting. Because the storm became a hurricane. - Author: Jess Rothenberg

Breakups quotes by Lael Morgan
#120. You try every trick in the book to keep her. You write her letters. You drive her to work. You quote Neruda. You compose a mass e-mail disowning all your sucias. You block their e-mails. You change your phone number. You stop drinking. You stop smoking. You claim you're a sex addict and start attending meetings. You blame your father. You blame your mother. You blame the patriarchy. You blame Santo Domingo. You find a therapist. You cancel your Facebook. You give her the passwords to all your e-mail accounts. You start taking salsa classes like you always swore you would so that the two of you could dance together. You claim that you were sick, you claim that you were weak - It was the book! It was the pressure! - and every hour like clockwork you say that you're so so sorry. You try it all, but one day she will simply sit up in bed and say, No more, and, Ya, and you will have to move from the Harlem apartment that you two have shared. You consider not going. You consider a squat protest. In fact, you say won't go. But in the end you do. - Author: Junot Diaz

#122. I don't know how many marriage breakups are caused by these movie-and television-addicted women expecting some bouquets and kissing and hugging and being swept out like Cinderella for dinner and dancing
then getting mad when a poor, scraggly husband comes in tired and sweaty from working like a dog all day, looking for some food. - Author: Malcolm X

#124. Well, in the meantime, Carter and I have been discussing the matter of Ryan." This time it wasn't the clang of a pan I heard, but instead a messy smack
the contact of Carter's backhand with Dean's head, I presumed. "Just hear me out. You have options. I have an Italian uncle. He'll make sure Ryan is sleeping with the fishes by next week."
"Dean!" Unable to repress my amusement, my eyes flew wide and my grin grew.
"Either that, or we can go all Sweeney Todd on him and

"Oh, will you stop?" My laughter was crippling. "There will be no calls to your uncle and no trip to the barber shop
please, leave Sweeney Todd out of it. - Author: Rachael Wade

Breakups quotes by Steve Maraboli
#126. I remember another thing Cosmo said. It typically takes half the time you're dating a guy to fall out of love with him. My ex and I were together almost ten months before he admitted over the holidays that he'd fallen out of love with me, so by that measure I should've been cured weeks ago. But once you've anticipated spending forever with someone, I'm not convinced you can ever feel complete after being uncoupled. I think you just learn to live without the person. Like when someone dies, you don't stop loving them just because they're not around to love you back anymore. Breakups truly are a kind of death. - Author: Daria Snadowsky

#129. What if I were to tell you the game's been rigged, that I was destined to win from the very beginning? To be clear: Winning is subjective. For the record: I win by losing, by avoiding the confusion of possibility, the sheer terror of potential. To make a long story short: I win when I lose and I lose by running, by pushing you away. - Author: Kris Kidd

Breakups quotes by Susane Colasanti
#131. We make people special to us, believing that they can save us. When one thing doesn't work, we look somewhere else to be saved. We rarely question the concept, itself. Sometimes, we don't look to another person to save us but to money, acknowledgement, a title, a cause, a notion of ourselves. None of it can save us. We travel the path in different ways; some are polite, some are ruthless, some are clever, some are instinctive. In the end, it all leads to the same despairing place. In the unsuspecting quiet moments, there it is; a sense of peace and a feeling that everything is fine without searching for anything to be saved by. - Author: Donna Goddard
Breakups quotes by Donna Goddard
#132. The changes we make in life often happen when we have a degree of certainty. However, the pain of our past failures and the fears of our peers often fuel our uncertainty. This inability to predict the future is why people find themselves stuck and unable to move forward. They don't want to feel the emotions of failure. They prefer to talk themselves into settling for an "okay" life, rather than the life they really want. However, failure is a matter of perspective! Is it not failure when you don't take a chance on the one thing you need? There is no happiness in regret, staying safe or settling for anything less than what you can have through action. - Author: Shannon L. Alder

Breakups quotes by Lori Jenessa Nelson
#134. Now that it was safe to drag their relationship out into the light and examine it mercilessly it was fantastic on what a thin basis they had proposed to build their life. Apart from physical attraction, there was nothing between them but fun and parties, and that was not entirely a taste in common.
Life was like a jigsaw, but if you tried to fit the pieces together yourself, you generally got them wrong. - Author: Monica Dickens
Breakups quotes by Monica Dickens
#135. God, 'I love you' really is the gateway drug of breaking up. Saying 'I love you' while walking across the dorm circle inevitably leads to saying 'I love you' while you're doing it. - Author: John Green
Breakups quotes by John Green
#136. How many times have you said, 'This is it. I've finally found my one true love'? And how many times has the reality turned out differently? Paperback romances and fairy tales promote an ideal of a first and only love, but few of us can claim to have had such uncomplicated good fortune. For most people, the process of finding the perfect partner is one trial and error: breakups, makeups, missed opportunities and misunderstandings. Human love is a fragile creation, and sometimes the smallest thing - the wrong choice of words or a single clumsy gesture - can make love shatter, stall or fade away. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Breakups quotes by Haruki Murakami
#137. Between himself and her there was that kind of division which is more insurmountable than enmity; for estrangements produced by good judgment will last when those of feeling break down in smiles. Not the lovers who part in passion, but the lovers who part in friendship, are those who most frequently part forever. - Author: Thomas Hardy
Breakups quotes by Thomas Hardy
#138. When you're finally finished crying, I hope you run as fast and as far as you possibly can from me. When you land, out of breath, and I'm finally out of sight, finally out of mind, you'll be honestly fine. All wounds will be healed. All fires will be extinguished. I'll be a memory. Feel free to repress me. - Author: Kris Kidd

Breakups quotes by Alex Haditaghi
#140. There were friends all over London who would welcome his eagerly to their homes, who would throw open their guest rooms and their fridges, eager to condole and to help. The price of all of those comfortable beds and home-cooked meals, however, would be to sit at kitchen tables, once the clean-pajamaed children were in bed, and relive the filthy final battle with Charlotte, submitting to the outraged sympathy and pity of his friends' girlfriends and wives. To this he preferred grim solitude, a Pot Noodle and a sleeping bag. - Author: Robert Galbraith

#150. I suspected that most marriages were more complicated than couples tended to let on. That summer, it seemed like every week brought news of another pair in our community who were splitting up. They were all around our age, most with little kids, trying to run their own businesses in a small economy. The evidence of those breakups directly contradicted the rosy way relationships were portrayed on Facebook, in public. I began to believe that future generations would study how we represent our long-term partnerships, and call us on our lies, in the same way we look at the way the Victorians depicted sex and know that it simply wasn't like that, not behind closed doors or in the hayloft. We hide marital conflict with the same sense of decorum. We'd do more good if we were honest and set realistic expectations for what it's like in the long run. - Author: Kristin Kimball

Breakups quotes by Kit Rocha
#152. There is a specific feeling that comes about during the dying embers of a relationship. Different from the Monday morning quarrels before work because you two are tired, different from the "I'm not going to talk to you for a while because I am mad at you" silences. Breaks ups happen instantly, yet the process occurs over a gradual period of time, with tear by tear until what was once whole, rips into two. Breakups are the disappointment we feel when we wanted our lover to finish the story with an exclamation mark, but instead are left with a question mark. - Author: Forrest Curran

#157. What would you do if someone breaks your heart and just when you are set to lose yourself in that abyss of emotions and feelings that you no longer understand, when you are numbed by the pain and life seems to be whizzing past you in fast forward , at this time that person comes back to heal you, only to break your heart all over again. Would you let her touch you one more time, to heal you to break you for the third time? No? And what if that person is someone you'd loved more than life, if she had changed the way you lived , would you hold back if she stood in front of you with her arms outstretched? - Author: Atul Randev

Breakups quotes by Paris Hilton
#161. All through their relationship, Harry was the one in charge, Harry was the one who gave them direction. This wasn't because Harry was smarter or even better at it than Craig was; it just meant more to him, to be in control. And Craig didn't really care, so he ceded it away. He liked not being responsible all the time.
Complacency. Craig realizes now that this was complacency. One of the reasons he liked the sound of Harry's voice was because it meant he didn't have to use his own. But eventually this strategy backfired. Eventually Harry realized what was happening, and didn't feel right about it. He wanted Craig to fight a little more, but by the time Craig started fighting for them to stay together, he had already lost. - Author: David Levithan

#165. ... She had been perfectly happy before she had met him; indeed she had been even slightly happier then. So the inscription might more accurately have read: "To remind you of how happy you've been in Edinburgh, in spite of the memories of me." But people never wrote that sort of brutally honest thing in books, largely because people very rarely have a clear idea of the effect that they have on other people, or can bring themselves to admit it. And Bruce, as Sally had discovered, lacked both insight into himself and an understanding of how somebody like her might feel about somebody like him ... - Author: Alexander McCall Smith
