get the fuck over him (or her)

goodbyeNo no I’m not going through a break-up, that would mean I was dating someone and we all know that’s not happening. For some reason I’ve been finding some really excellent “get over him” sort of songs the past two days (must be because I’ve been listening to so much country music) so I decided to make up a “break-up” playlist. I guess you don’t have to be breaking up with a person in particular, maybe you’re breaking up with a shitty part of yourself or a friend… or maybe you just need a reminder as to why you don’t date. Whatever.
Asked twitter and facebook for suggestions… here’s your playlist from them and me

    • or for single people going through a moment of weakness this is a nice reminder not to date cause clearly if there are this many break-up songs out there it’s better to just not
