Cupid’s Advice:

There’s something to be said for a clean break after a break-up. Cupid has some reasons to consider:

1. Piece of mind: Although you may miss your ex, a clean break often helps to heal faster. Those miserable, “should’ve, could’ve, would’ve” thoughts won’t hound you for as long, and you can start to move on. No headaches are always a plus.
