My boyfriend (of nearly four years) and I split up five weeks ago tomorrow. I am so not dealing with this well. Instead of coping, I've put all of my energy into other things, and now I'm a complete trainwreck with a pile of purchases -- but the bags don't quite keep me warm at night. Since the breakup I've bought:
-pink chevron hobo
-medium scribble tote & mini skinny
-studded gold gallery tote
-tattersall demi & mini skinny
-magenta capacity wristlet
-bracelet
-pink gradient scarf
-various fobs/charms
I don't even know if that covers it. Not to mention two new Diane von Furstenberg dresses, Juicy pj's & robe, two Juicy dresses, Prada heels that don't match a single thing I own, and a mess of other things.

Shopping did NOT make me feel ANY better. Maybe for a little while, but I'm lonely as all heck and have nowhere to go to wear all the new stuff.

Any Colorado Coachies want to do lunch? :s

Aw I'm so sorry! If I lived in CO I'd totally go to lunch with you. When me and my bf broke up I joined a gym. I put all my energy into it and I felt really good about myself. Plus there's always hot guys to check out! Well if you need anything, let me know! Again I'm so sorry! :hugs:

Oh honey! I am so sorry for you! I wish I lived in CO! I would love to go out with you! If you need anyone to talk to feel free to PM me. I just wish I could jump through the computer screen and give you a big hug!

Oh :hugs:

I wish I was in CO to take you to lunch.
I find retail therapy usually very soothing, but be sure to keep all the tags on in case you change your mind. Often I find my retail therapy is rash and so I make sure I like it before I am forced to keep it.

I am so sorry!!!! I have been there too...only a month after I thought my world was over after catching my bf of 5 years cheating on me :mad:, I met the man who eventually became my husband. I thank God for leading me to the right person, even though it took such a painful event for it to happen. Everything truly happens for a reason, and I wish you nothing but the best as you deal with this sad time in your life.:hugs:

And by the way, I use Coach as Prozac for any time I'm feeling bad...and then I go and pop a Prozac as well...:okay:

Sending positive, happy thoughts your way! I'm on the East Coast, but if I were in CO, I'd definitely be up for lunch! I think we've all been there! And keep the tags on your stuff-when you're feeling better you may end up returning.:hugs:

I'm really sorry. I know it hurts right now, but it does get better with time and there IS someone out there who is meant to be for you. In the meantime, return a bunch of that stuff (Hey, at least it will give you something to do).

When my BF that I were dating (Before my husband, obviously) for 5 years was caught red handed in our bed with another chic, I took off for a weekend getaway to clear my mind. It was one of the best things that i ever did. I had never attempted to travel on my own before and it was so much fun to just do everything that I wanted without having to worry about anyone else's agenda. Maybe you should try that - besides, you'll have a LOT of freed up cash if you return a bunch of that stuff:tup:.

so sorry to hear this..there is no easy way out of this, but stay strong and u will gain ur strength and faith back..shopping is just an avenue to let off some steam but it's not really a long-term kinda solution u knw..besides, it can be damaging on the pockets!

take time off for yourself, spend some time rejuvenating (like a massage or a day trip spa) and u will feel loads better, i hope..
:heart:

So sorry to hear about that sweetie! It must be a really hard time for you, I can't even imagine what you must be going through. We're definitely here for you.

Retail therapy is the best for short-term satisfaction. But after a while, it wears off. In my experience, I try to take up a new hobby or interest. I also write in a journal my thoughts, or take a class at the local community college, or exercise a lot. (Endorphins might help :P)
