There are lots of guides on the Internet about how to dump someone like a responsible adult. This is not one of them.
This is a guide on how to dump someone like a total jerk. Because sometimes, knowing what not to do can help you just as much as knowing what you should do. So if you want to be a jerk, do this. If you want to be a decent human being, do the exact opposite.
Instead of actually going through the proper motions of dumping someone, throw all that out the window in favor of doing nothing at all — you know, ghosting. Don’t call, text, email, message, anything. Just pretend that they don’t exist, and have never existed, ever. It’s the jerk way. The jerk way is to completely avoid any kind of confrontation at all. As far as bad breakups go, this one is the worst.
I’m not talking about a guy who just believes in you and is cool with you having a career. I’m talking about a guy who actively fights for women’s right in his daily life. If my my boyfriend wore a bra, he would 100% take it off and burn it at a rally to send a message. These are things about him that confirm my suspicions that I am in love with a feminist.
Who’s ready for some lolz? It’s time again for Best Lady Tweets! Finding you the best tweets from women since…earlier this year. We’ve got a good batch this week, so let’s get right to it!

Sometimes, you’re on a really great date with a guy you just met, and things are going swimmingly, and there’s not a concern in your mind and then, BAM — weird stuff goes down. And you have no idea how to react. You want to be polite, because woman are taught from a very early age that we should always be polite, especially on dates, and we’re practically conditioned that way, so what is there to do?
I’ll tell you, using an example of one date that went weird.
It’s the tale of my friend’s date — we’ll call her Michele. Michele met a dude off of OkCupid, which is its own mixed bag of fun, but she thought she found a somewhat normal guy. They went to a bar, and to quote Michele, he was, “funny” and, “fun” and, “insisted on paying for everything” — not bad, right?
He walked her to her car. Michele said something like, “It’s cold”, and that right there, that’s when stuff got weird. Here’s what happened:
I do not know this person. LinkedIn is officially not safe.
Perhaps at some point I accepted an invitation to connect with this man because we are relatively in the same industry, but I do not personally know this person. We have never met.
I don’t know about all you other professional adult people but, I’m on LinkedIn to engage in business. I’m there to make new connections, explore new opportunities, and gauge movement my industry.
I’m not there to flirt. (Even if I am the biggest one I know, I understand boundaries.)
Let’s poke around Twitter and see what we find, shall we? And by “we”, I mean me. (Or do I mean “I”?) Anyway, here are some funny, great, totally tubular tweets from women on Twitter, to add some spark to your Friday. Got a lady you’d like to see in Best Lady Tweets? Comment below!
I'm wearing a distracting necklace because I really want to say "My eyes are up here" once in my life.

Sometimes an apology is necessary. If you’re not exactly sure what to say, when to say it or even how, here’s a little refresher.
I’m sorry for saying I’m sorry.
Have you ever “felt fat”? Have you ever said, “I feel so fat today”? Have you ever chosen your mood on Facebook as “fat”? Well, while you may be able to continue to have “fat feelings”, you can no longer promote those feelings on Facebook. A group of activists, led by Catherine Weingarten, petitioned on Change.Org to ask Facebook to remove the “fat” option under feelings. Why? The petition explains,
As someone who has struggled with and overcome disordered eating, I know what it’s like to “feel” fat. I have spent years of my life consumed with negative thoughts about my body, and far too many days starving myself in an effort to lose weight. But even worse than the skipped meals and the hours spent obsessing in front of the mirror was the fear of what others thought about me and my body.
When Facebook users set their status to “feeling fat,” they are making fun of people who consider themselves to be overweight, which can include many people with eating disorders. That is not ok.
