Cupid’s Advice:

The trickiness and difficulty of a breakup doesn’t necessarily end as soon as you and your significant other call it quits. After you admit that it’s over, you then have tell your loved ones. So how do you stay diplomatic when your friends want to hear about the drama? Cupid has some tips:

1. Just say “no comment”: Breakups are private and potentially very painful for the parties involved, so there’s nothing wrong with telling a questioner that it’s none of their business. However, it’s usually best to put it as nicely as possible. Thank the person for their concern and then simply say that it’s a private affair and that you’d rather not talk about it.

3. Be on the same page: Right after your split, this may seem near impossible, but in the coming months, it will help the situation if you remain amicable.
