(48 Posts)

I just never have any luck. Can I have a hug?

MissApple Sun 13-Dec-15 18:01:34

On a good note, you still have time to take his presents back to the shop and get yourself something!

DraenorQueen Sun 13-Dec-15 18:02:13

Ugh, sorry about that! Had you been together long?

AnyFucker Sun 13-Dec-15 18:02:25

Have a hug. Getting dumped is shit.

But it isn't Christmas.

There is never a good time to be dumped. If they had hung on until after christmas then valentines comes around, then a birthday etc.

Take his presents back and spend it on yourself.

His presents were from a pop up Christmas market which is gone so I guess they can just go in the bin. We're together a year. So fed up. I'm a single mum who's ex had nothing to do with my DD so it's not even like I can have the odd weekend to go out an meet someone.

I'd been with somebody for 11m when I had a very bad accident in 2013 he txt me he was moving to find a job .... But since then I knew he was telling porkies move on I did smile

Have a hug from me too.

Can't you put the pressies on eBay or gumtree? Get something back for them.

Find babysitters in the New year and get out there grin

Oh you poor thing. Its shit. However it is also shit being dumped after and finding they hung on due to festivities. flowers as has been said there is never a good time

UmbongoUnchained Sun 13-Dec-15 18:22:43

I just give up now really!

Headmelt Sun 13-Dec-15 18:22:45

Hugs to you. I know you're hurting now but soon you will look back and laugh at being so upset over him. One day he'll be old/bald/wrinkly/badly dressed and he'll have aged badly. He's a total loser and you can do sooo much better. Every cloud has a silver lining, lots of hot guys to snog under the mistletoe this year so don't waste too much time feeling bad. Have a big bubble bath, eat lots of chocolate, have a couple of glasses of something nice, watch a good chick flick and then try tour forget abut him. You won't feel like it but call up your friends and arrange a night out. Dress to kill and a nice pair of heels, and party the night away with your friends. You will find someone wonderful who deserves you. flowers

I don't even drink grin so can't even get smashed and forget about it haha. Oh well.

Headmelt Sun 13-Dec-15 18:48:18

I got some mulled non alcoholic fruit punch wine from Marks and Spencer recently it's lush. At least you won't be hung over <bright side! >.
Have you someone nearby to babysit so you can go out?

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 13-Dec-15 18:51:06

I got dumped last Monday too. It's shit isn't it? We were supposed to be going to a gig tonight, and going to the cinema on Friday. I'm a single parent too so can commiserate.

UmbongoUnchained Sun 13-Dec-15 19:01:26

I'm just so devastated. We were supposed to be saving up next year to get a place together, and now it's all gone down the shitter.

AnyFucker Sun 13-Dec-15 19:05:52

Have you got all your money back ?

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 13-Dec-15 19:14:34

We'd been together 7 months, no long term plans made yet but it was going really well, I had no idea this was coming. Sorry you feel like this.

DeeDee47 Sun 13-Dec-15 19:21:25

I was dumped this time last year,and was dumped again a month ago,I'm getting quite good at it now!!hugs it is shit,and everyone around you seem to be loved up,the only thing I can hope is that this time next year has to be better for us x

UmbongoUnchained Sun 13-Dec-15 19:22:52

We need a big mumsnet night out!

UmbongoUnchained Sun 13-Dec-15 19:23:33

Hadn't started saving yet AF. Thankfully!

Hillfarmer Sun 13-Dec-15 19:28:21

Yep it's definitely not Christmas yet. Sorry OP, he is not worthy.

AnyFucker Sun 13-Dec-15 19:39:26

2 weeks before Xmas is the outer limit of what is acceptable dumping before the Big Day

it's still just the 13th December, any other day, honest

hefzi Sun 13-Dec-15 22:07:56

Sorry to hear this flowers - the only positive thing is that tomorrow, you are going to be one day closer to getting over him. I realise that's not totally uplifting - having a bit of a shit one at this end too grin

UmbongoUnchained Sun 13-Dec-15 22:45:01

flowers To everyone going through it too. He texted me asking if he can still come over and see me occasionally. Ummmmm go fuck your self! grin

AnyFucker Sun 13-Dec-15 22:51:35
