2. You explain why you broke up to different friend groups over and over again.

"Can I live?"

3. And then you deal with comments like, "You were such a great couple!" and "If you guys broke up, then I don't know what love is."

I didn't know I had such a huge responsibility to you.

4. Friends ask how you're dealing with the break-up, but, like, you don't wanna talk about it.

5. And then there's the one friend who has no idea what happened and asks, "How's it going between you two?"
