Are you going through a rough breakup? Did the recent mercury retrograde turn your relationship upside down?
I have to admit, breakups can be hard, especially if you were too attached to your significant other.
Having said that, you cannot deny the inevitable truth, that all good things come to an end.
And no matter how good your relationship was, if it wasn’t meant to be, it’ll never last.
But hey, at least you have the memories of short-lived happiness, right?
Or maybe not, I mean, who am I to judge.
There are many different ways you can get over your heartbreak.
For starters, since it’s the 21st century, you can create an online dating profile and start fishing, if you know what I mean.
What better way to move on from your ex-partner than finding a new one, right?
If you’re not looking to jump into another relationship right away and don’t need any human interaction, you can spend your time watching movies.
There are plenty of amazing romantic comedies that will help you get over your shitty ex in no time.
A fair warning, there might be a lot of crying involved, so grab some tissues.
If you can’t deal with it alone you can watch these movies with your girlfriends or your cousin and it’ll just be fine.
Here are eight movies to cure your broken heart.
Call Me By Your Name.
This beautifully heartbreaking coming-of-age romantic drama starring Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer leaves you sobbing for days.
This is a story of a 17-year-old boy who falls in love with an older man who works for his father as a research assistant.
This film will make you believe in love. And again break your heart into million pieces.
The beautiful location is enough for you to get hooked. I have to warn you, it’s a bit lengthy, but every minute is worth it.
Plus that shirt Timothee wears at the end is outfit goals.
And the best piece of news is that there is a sequel to the film coming soon.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Have you ever been through such a tough relationship that you wish you’d never met them? Or maybe erase every bit of memory you have of them?
As much as you wish for it, let Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind be a reminder how much of a bad idea it is.
This beautifully dark romantic film starring Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey shows how beautiful love can be. Despite the times where you’d want to just walk away and never return.
This is a classic film that you can sob to and feel happy about later on.
Seriously, don’t forget the tissues.
Bridesmaid is personally my favorite girl gang film to watch and laugh and cry at the same time.
It’s definitely hard seeing someone else calling your best-friend theirs while you’re in the middle of a mid-life crisis.
This film is hilarious at times and can also really tear you up.
This is a funny yet beautiful portrayal of friendship and jealousy. It might not heal you up entirely, but it’s sure to lighten up the heavy mood.
And the scene where Maya Rudolph takes a dump in the middle of the road is still one of my favorite.
You might watch a romantic film and sob all night remembering your ex. Or you can watch Magic Mike (both parts) to relief all that tension that’s building up.
There are a number of reasons you need to watch Magic Mike if you’re going through a bad breakup.
a) it’s a film about male strippers. b) it has hot men with hot body dancing around half-naked. And c) Channing Tatum.
You’ll instantly forget that you were in the middle of heartbreak and feel the need to get a lap dance ASAP.
And also thank god for Channing Tatum.
Netflix knows how to deliver when it comes to good content. And Someone great is one of the most amazing breakup films I’ve personally watched in years.
Gina Rodriguez stars as Jenny Young, a music journalist who’s just been dumped by her long-term boyfriend Nate Davis (Lakeith Stanfield).
Jenny now has to live with the fact that she isn’t in a relationship anymore.
And to help her out, she recruits her two best friends for an outrageous adventure before leaving for San Francisco.
This is a beautiful story of trying to let go of what was once so dear to you. And knowing there is a different kind of peace you find in moving on with your life.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Lara Jean (Lana Condor) is a simple, not-so-popular high school girl who loves living in a fantasy. But in reality, she’s too scared to address her feeling to the boys she loved.
So, to make it easier, she writes letters to those boys with no intention what so ever to send it to them.
However, they end up getting the letters. And one of the recipients is her sister’s boyfriend. And another one his the high school heartthrob and also her friend-turned-enemy’s boyfriend Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo).
This is a light-hearted rom-com that’ll make you feel better more than sad. And there is a sequel coming so we’ll know how Lara Jean and Peter K’s relationship flourishes.
John Tucker Must Die.
Sometimes breaking up makes you hate the person who did you wrong that you want to do them wrong.
You know like humiliate him in public and destroy his life. Yeah, that might be a little too much. However, you do get these thoughts sometimes.
If you feel the same, John Tucker Must Die is a must-watch.
Three ex-girlfriends of John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe), a serial cheater are on a mission to destroy his life. They recruit freshmen to date him and destroy his life in the school.
Along the way, John falls in love with Kate (Brittany Snow). And John’s brother Scott (Penn Badgley) also falls for Kate.
Come to think of it, this is a really stupid film. But considering the fact that it might heal your broken heart, you might want to give it a watch. You know, just in case.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) goes on a trip to Hawaii in order to forget he just broke up with his TV star girlfriend Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell). But ironically, Sarah is also vacationing in the same place with her new boyfriend Aldous Snow (Russel Brand).
This is a light-hearted romantic comedy that has its funny bits as well as cringe sequences.
But overall, this film will definitely warm your heart and help you cure that sad broken heart of yours.
