don’t use clichés like “it’s not you, it’s me” “maybe we can still be friends” etc but instead let them down by using famous cooking show elimination tag lines. “you’ve been chopped” “please pack your knives and go”
I wasn’t your first and we both know this. She had your heart before you knew my name. He had mine before I ever looked twice at you. Most of your stories have her in them and it makes me wince but they’re coming less often and this is something to smile about. When you remember that you met him back when he was the one holding my hand, you try to remember what he looked like but you can’t because it didn’t matter then.
They were first and we both know this. I want to thank her for leaving you so softly. You want to punch him for leaving me in pieces.
You weren’t my first and we both know this but that’s okay because maybe I learned all the hard lessons with him. Maybe you learned how to love with her.
I guess what I’m trying to say is there are so many different kinds of love in this world. He was my shot of tequila on an empty stomach and she was your monsoon after the sky forgot how to cry for the entire summer but you’re my bed waiting for me after a long day and I’m your glass of red wine that warms you from the inside.
So what if they were first? This doesn’t make me sad anymore. We both promise to do better this time and I finally believe us.

I’m so much better off without you Taurus: Good luck handling everything by yourself Gemini: Okay bye Cancer: Wow why? you definitely are not what I thought you were Leo: Haha, you’ll regret this so much Virgo: Do you have any good reasons or are you just plain stupid? Libra: Hmm, you don’t want to be with me anymore? why??? Scorpio: You’re absolutely right. I can do way better. Sagittarius: But are we still friends? Capricorn: Yea we’re done Aquarius: okay, take your time! Pisces: What’s wrong? Is it because I’m a Pisces?
