    How To Break Up With Your Imaginary Girlfriend

    Once you break it off, there's no turning back. Sure, you dreamed she cheated on you, but that was YEARS ago. Is it worth spoiling the memories of the state fair you didn't go to? Or the Snapchat she didn't send you?

    Make sure to steer the conversation towards behavioral issues. Explain how sometimes she can be a pig.... and other times she can be a sexy nurse.

    Be absolutely clear that it's over.

    There's nothing more embarrassing than one of your buds being all "Hey man...where's your (bunny fingers) girlfriend?" and then you have to be all "sigh, we split up" and then he's all "LOLOLOLOL". That's why it's SUPER important to tell ESPN that she died. Clean breaks, bro...

    Go make a crapload of tackles so everyone forgets you're the worst.
