Navigating Heartbreak: Remove Those Blinders (Even If They’re Chanel!)
-by Sara Miller on As Told By Miss Ginger
To say that I don’t have a rather extensive dating history would be putting it mildly. What my dating history lacks in depth, it makes up in entertainment value in spades. I dated a nice boy in high school for a couple of weeks, and that was only because I wanted a real prom date. After a few possible suitors here and there in college, I finally got a real boyfriend.

One magical day, I saw him in a different light and everything changed. Then… I went back to college and broke his heart. Totally awful, right? Don’t worry, I came back from college and rekindled the flame. Sort of.
