    Bonus Break-Ups: Courtney Perkins (Not All Geminis) Sees The Signs

    We asked Courtney Perkins, creator of the hilariously accurate @NotAllGeminis Instagram account, to answer our questions about astrology and relationships. Which signs are most compatible? Which pairings will have the worst breakups? What’s the difference between sun, moon, Mars, and Venus signs, and how do they influence the way we date? All this, plus Courtney explains how she saw the Brangelina trainwreck coming and why Geminis are just misunderstood.

    Jenny Han Breaks Up With Her Dentist

    Jenny Han Breaks Up With Her Dentist

    Behind author Jenny Han’s smile is the story of a breakup. Eight years ago, she met a dream dentist—gentle, caring, warm—and fell into a routine of blissful cleanings. Then, her dentist dropped a bombshell: She thought Jenny should get braces and jaw surgery to correct a misalignment. Other specialists disagreed, but Jenny found herself strangely conflicted about standing up to this woman who’d spent so much time poking around in her mouth.

Awesome podcast about breaking up, but not limited to romantic love

I really love this podcast (and all podcast produced by Hello Sunshine!)! I like that they take the notion of break up and apply to things, people, places, beyong romantic relationships. We all breakup with things, people, places that do not involve our romantic partners.
