Songs To Help You Get Over Your College Boyfriend

"Breaking up is hard to do."
- The Carpenters

So you just dumped your college boyfriend because you realized he’s more interested in becoming a D-list celebrity, than gaining any sort of transmittable life skill, #relatable. And sure, deep down you know you’re better off without your clingy Rob Kardashian wannabe, but the emotional rollercoaster of any breakup is bound to hit no matter how much you convince yourself ‘it’s all good’. 

Although dancing in a club to an old Destiny’s Child anthem with your girlfriends is a reputable therapeutic method, sometimes a good solo, melodramatic journey is the best way to truly get over all of the emotions that dumping Mr. Wrong plagued you with. 

Here are a 10 tunes to help you through those inevitable break-up blues.
