Sex Gets Real HIQI: Episode 61

All the ways NOT to break up with someone.

If you’re in the DC area, join Dawn for her relationship communication bootcamp on June 11th. Check it out here. You can also subscribe to the meetup to get all announcements. See you there!

A new service in Australia, called Sorry It’s Over, will break up for you for $5. If you pay a little more, they’ll add in features like a box of tissues or even a person to deliver the news face to face. Worst thing EVER, but still funny.

Which leads us into our breakup stories. Dawn did it pretty badly in high school, but Dylan’s epic drama (including something on Valentine’s Day) is unbeatable.

Or is it? Share your stories with us. We’re sure you’ve got some great ones.

On Sex Gets Real this week, Dawn and Dylan talk about their break-ups after reading about a new service in Australia that will break up for you. Bad idea. Not that Dylan has done much better.
